A great read! The narrator is superb, and enhances the author's talents at suspense and character development. Not only that, but good triumphs over evil--hurrah! First class entertainment.
It takes a one heck of a book for me to right a review. I just haven't found that many that deserve writing about, perhaps I should right reviews for the bad ones but I get bored real quick and can't aggravate myself further by writing a poor review on a poor book. I listen to many audio books, most are predictable, some have plots that last, some have characters that last a little while, and others I just fast forward or quit listening. But I must admit that this was a terrific and worthwhile story. It had great, unpredictable characters that provided realistic and plausible storylines. I love authors who can take a character and make you absolutely hate them or love them. I give Archer all the credit in taking the time to develop a plot, make it believable and then spin the characters in such a web as to make the entire project just a joy to listen to. When you read or listen to a book and you cannot quit listening or turning pages then you know you've got a winner. This book was a winner. I would highly recommend that you enjoy it.
Read/listen to Chapter 1 and 2 then skip to Chapter 12. This is one of those books that makes you wonder if the author is being paid by the word. Same information repeated many times.
Good "multi tasking" listen, no need to really devote full attention to it.
A modern day rewrite of Dumas should find any book writer quaking in his boots, but Archer does a good enough job of it. I wouldn't award him any prizes for insite, and his version of vengence and justice was rather feeble, but all in all you might not want to pass it up completely. It was decent, but bland entertainment.
This is a wonderful story, not original but well written and fun. I love Roger Allam's narration and he has become one of my favorite readers now. This was a good listen while I anxiously await Sins of The Fathers. Certainly worth a credit.
One of my favorites. Details in prision perhaps made more gripping from his first hand experience. Great story teller.
I didn't read the written version...I listen while driving. I drive a lot!
Lots of twists. Keeps you thinking!
I recommend this very entertaining book!
Story was facinating.
I love Roger Allam's performances. His voices are fantastic.
The character Nick's death.
Yes. Held my interest to the end and left me wanting for more. I look forward to his next book.
