Actually, the title says it all in a nutshell. I had never been introduced to Brett Battles or this series. The plot moved right along, the characters were well rounded persons, and the ending, while a little predictable, was well written. As always, Scott Brick was perfection. Some will say his voice is monotonous. I would say he reads without attempting to act it out with phony, irritating inflections.
I had put off listening to this series because I just wasn't sure that I would like the subject matter. Turns out, I was wrong, wrong, wrong. This book had all the action you could ask for and great dialog. I promise you that if you give this book a try, you won't regret it!
I am so happy I found Audible!
I am struggling with this narrator. I have read some reviews that say he is a great narrator. This is my first experience with him. I have only gotten through a few chapters but I don't think I can continue. Someone referred to him as Shatner, that is a very good comparison. I am intrigued though, so far as the story goes anyway, I think it is worth it to me to purchase it for Kindle and read it to see what happens. I will not say that I will refuse to buy something read by Scott Brick, but I would be wary just based on his performance here.
After reading/listening to many "C.I.A" novels this is the first of someone who works behind the scenes.
While the overall premise is interesting the book failed to get off the ground.
Kept waiting for that moment where I could shout, "IT'S FINALLY OVER!"
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.
