DeMille has taken the flight of TWA 800 and said "what if..." A plausible scenario that keeps you hooked. Not as much action as some of his other novels but keeps you interested and leaves you wanting more.
The first half was a little slow, but was more than made up for in the second half.Was looking for traffic jams so I could hear more. A great story line with a great ending.
After a somewhat slow start this book really picks up the pace quickly. Though the ending was somewhat predicable, it is a "great listen".
Kept my interest throughout. The narrator did an excellent job of bringing the characters to life. I came to enjoy the main character's sense of humor.
This is the first fiction book that I have listened to from Audible. I could barely stop listening! I listen most of the time in my car and I never wanted my drive to end so I could keep listening. I loved the premise of the story and the ending stayed with me for a few days. Excellent story - I was so tense listening towards the end. The character of John Corey was so much more alive and the narrator was outstanding. I only recently discovered Nelson DeMille and I have read most of what he's written. I recommend this book highly!
I try not to read the spoilers in other reviews. I don?t know why I didn?t see this ending coming. I didn?t put 2 and 2 together with the timeline. I had to hear the ending three times to make sure I got it right. I thought I had somehow skipped to a different story. The hero is real. The feelings and emotions are believable. The villain is unfortunately, all too believable. This book grabs you at the beginning and keeps you glued till the all too believable, all too poignant ending. There is no dull moment, a true must finish story. I would recommend that every reader who likes a gripping thriller to invest time in this. I will read this author and reader again as they both did a superb job.
I enjoy Nelson DeMille's books immensely, especially when read by Scott Brick. The first DeMille book I listened to was "Mayday" (co-authored with Thomas Block). In DeMille's books the characters are believable, the dialog engaging and entertaining and the plots current and fast-paced. I especially liked John Corey's (spelling?) character. When Corey is brought to life by Scott Brick the outcome is magical.
As for Night Fall I was drawn into the story from page one and literally could not stop listening. TWA Flight 800 is a mystery that remains unsolved and was a can't miss topic for a engaging story. As the story progresses and Corey delves deeper into the mystery we are drawn back to the events around Flight 800 and DeMille does a masterful job of cranking the suspense and keeping us on the edge of our seat as it looks like he will reveal not only who was behind the crash but also possibly why they caused the tragedy.
The ending is critical to this novel so I will not say much other than I was hugely disappointed by how DeMille chose to close this story. At the end I felt cheated. Having said that; however, the rest of the novel is so good that I recommend this title, especially if you are a fan of DeMille's character John Corey.
While many audio books will take me a week or so to finish, all of Mr. DeMille's books are finished within a day or two. I highly recommend any book written by this man. Thank you Audible--please add any remaining works from this author to your catalog.
I have listened to over 250 books in the last 10 years. I tend to listen to certain authors and try to read all their books. I listen while exercising and driving which makes the time past enjoyable.
Although it is based on history it reads like fiction. It does not take much to realize the time and setting of the story, but the novel moves so fast you supress the possible outcome.
