Dreadful - tedious, boring, badly written - a tribute to the skill of the narrator but alas you cannot make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.
I slogged through this dry as powder adventure with some hope of it becoming more vibrant to no avail. The idea is really intriguing, but the writing is so A to B rote and uncolorful that it tasks your patience at every turn. Just about everyone is so cold and heartless that you kind of hope the bad guys will succeed, even though most of their work is as ham-handed as the author's. The two stars are for Scott Brick who does his best to enliven this turkey that arrives C.O.D.
Really enjoyed reading the book. Traveled around the world within the book encountering new challenges in each place. Book seemed to be thoroughly researched. Only disappointment was that the author only had one other book available.
I listened to this while on vacation. I was kept on the edge and wanting to keep getting back to it.I'm a lover of great suspense, and this was one of the best.
This book didn't get the ratings I would expect. I listen to Action/Mystery novels almost exclusively and almost to a book, you will need to suspend belief at times. I thought this book was an enjoyable, non-complicated action adventure book; I am not saying this book is Shakespeare but it's fun. Probably would make a decent screenplay. If your not a literary snob you will probably enjoy it.
Brick does a good job as well.
Although the topic of this book does not sound appealing to a woman, I enjoyed listening to this book. It was very believable and not too gory. I would gladly read another book by this author.
