My book of choice is one of suspense with a little bit of romance
He was a master at his trade
The cleaner himself
This was the first book I listened to by Scott Brick and will not be the last; enjoyed it
What a waste ,boring, after 12 chapters most of the time is spent describing woman's clothing and food, not what I had in mind. Don't waste your money on this one....
I listened to this because I ran out of credits - it was one my husband picked. I usually listen to "deeper" stuff. Not bad for the genre - kept my attention and was a good diversion during a medical procedure.
Apparently there is now a prequel to this series. I decided to start with Book 1 anyway. The story profiles our "cleaner" who has no allegiance except to his pay check. There is a plot, there is action, but all strains believability for characters who are not likeable.
The best fiction gives you a story that you can carry with yourself for a while after you've finished reading, really caring what more the characters will do or reflecting on how you've been influenced by the plot. This book did neither.
"I ain't often right but I've never been wrong"
Yes I would.
Quinn is the man
It's a good book, the series is great each book gets more interesting. I'm listening to Becoming Quinn (book 4.5) now and I'm hooked on this series.
Say something about yourself!
This was a great listen in general, with some intersting twists along the way, worth a listen to.
The book is entertaining, it's just too much of an imagination stretch to be taken seriously.
The "cleaner" is not a government employee, yet, almost single-handedly, he is put to the task of saving the world from a deadly virus, when, it seems, all the people he knows are aware of what's going, except the government. Seems like, at some point, someone in a government agency just mind have gotten wind of the problem, and sent a couple more people to his aid.
Proud Canadian. Lakeside views. LOVE audio. Living with MS. Prefer male authors. J.K. fooled me aka Silkworm. Action, adventure, suspense!!
This is my first time listening to Brett Battles and would happily do so again provided that Scott Brick is the narrator! Bricks' ability to create the different male and female voices is fabulous! Sometimes I even forgot that I was listening to one narrator. I found this story was different than other spy/murder stories I have listened to and thoroughly enjoyed the story and the main character Quinn!
The voice actor is extremely slow. The whole delivery does nothing to keep you in the book. You will miss nothing if you listen at 2X. The writing is very simple, and asked you to believe a lot with giving any details.
The author barely came to the game with a plan. He tries to create suspense, but instead puts you to sleep with the lack of depth.
This guy was so slow, it was painful. He takes twice as long to read a sentence, because their long unneeded dramatic pauses. It knocks you right out of the book.
How about you drop any reference to the kid. It makes the book predictable. Who doesn't try to save the kid. It boring and doesn't reward the reader at all.
Go for the Grey Man series, it has better characters, plot and development.
FORTY SOMETHING THUG FOR HIRE WHO ENJOYS A GOOD BOOK.
AS I LISTENED TO THE FIRST COUPLE OF HOURS OF THIS AUDIBLE OFFERING I WAS THINKING - WOW, I'VE FOUND A NEW FAVORITE SERIES CHARACTER TO KEEP TRACK OF. AND THE CHARACTER OF JOHNATHAN QUINN IS ALLURING. A CLEANER FOR A CLANDESTINE ORGANISATION, MAKING SURE LOOSE ENDS ARE TIED UP FOR VARIOUS CLIENTS. ADD IN A DOUBLE CROSS THAT PUTS THAT CHARACTER ON THE RUN FOR HIS LIFE, AND I FIGURED I HAD THRILLER GOLD AT HAND. WELL, ANOTHER FEW HOURS INTO IT AND SOME OF THAT GOLD HAD LOST ITS LUSTER AS THE STORY SEEMED TO DRAG ON AND ON AND ON. AND NOW THAT I'M DONE, I FEEL MRE RELIEVED TO HAVE GOTTEN THROUGH IT, THAN I AM SATISFIED. MAYBE IT WAS THE LACK LUSTER PERFORMANCE BY NARRATOR SCOTT BRICK; OR MAYBE ITS A LACKLUSTER WRITING STYLE BY BRETT BATTLES. I CAN'T QUITE SEEM TO PUT MY FINGER ON IT. ALL THE ELEMENTS WERE IN THERE TO MAKE ME SMILE; BUT INSTEAD I WAS FIGHTING THE URGE TO FAST FORWARD. WOULD I TRY ANOTHER QUINN STORY. I JUST MIGHT; LIKE I SAID THE ELEMENTS WERE THERE, JUST SOMETHING LACKING IN THE EXECUTION.
