I found this book to be confusing and irritating, I had to skip every other chapter just to get to what was going on. the chapter's from the 777 yrs were just so confusing and boring, is why I had to skip it.........but I wouldn't advise anyone to get it, unless they are interested in what happened over 1300 yrs ago..or maybe I am just not that into history to get the full meaning of the story.....
I don't know; haven't read the print version.
Secret of the Seventh Son has an amazingly different plot that continued to build and become more and more disturbing to me while entertaining me immensely.
Haven't had the pleasure of listening to him before.
If you thought Area 51 was too frightening to exist, think again!
This is one of the most entertaining and engaging thrillers I've listened to in some time. Cooper's novel was referred to by one listener as a combination of Ken Follett and Michael Connelly. I agree. Cooper's characters are certainly less complex, but in this case the story carries the characters and is complex enough that we don't need deeper characters. I agree; this novel is perfect for a blockbuster film, and would adapt very well to the screen without losing the story. I can't wait to see this in the theatres.
I love God, my family and my country!
So many F-bombs! If you took out the filthy language the book would be awesome but then it would only be half its length! What a shame.
Absolutely! Glenn Cooper created a multi-level story that mixes Clive Cussler-like historical tie-ins, but at three periods in time, 8th century England, post-World War II England and American, and present day. The result is a somewhat dark view of God's plan for each us that plays out on the streets of New York as a series of random events, and ultimately all threads of the story weave together into a tight fabric of plausibility that leaves the reader wondering "what if this were true?". Definitely in the top two percent for creativity and enjoyability.
Mark did a superb job narrating the many characters in the story, creating separate voices that which were delivered without any distraction from the storyline.
Yes. I found myself looking for opportunities to dive back into the story throughout the day. While I couldn't finish it in one day, I did finish it as quickly as I could.
I figured out the premise of the story at about the middle of the book. One line delivered by Mark, alias Peter, gave it away.
Flight attendant. Love to "read" while I'm walking.
I was so intrigued by the story. A real "what if" scenario. I loved the whole concept that the author came up with and I was very impressed by the way he wove the story together from medieval to present day. When the story first jumped back in time I was confused as to what the reason was but when it came into focus I loved it.
His voice seems to match the character of the mildly flawed FBI agent Piper. He just had a realism that came through to me.
Are you BTH?
I discovered audio books when my required reading for my profession left me with no time to read for pleasure. Now every chore is a read.
Maybe. The story line is so bizare, it might reveal more character development.
The paranoid computer geek, who drives the plot.
Haven't listened to other performances. He breathes life into a plotline that leaps from century to century.
The "reveal" of area 59
Improbable plot but captivating storyline.
I love mysteries and this was awesome. It has an intriguing story line that takes you from past to present and back again. It was exciting I couldn't stop listening.
I have not read anything like the Secret of the Seventh Son. It is a very unique story.
I cannot pick a favorite scene I enjoyed the whole book.
This book is definitely worth a listening,
I would recommend it , i am not yet finished with it. I am only thru to the second half. Since i am enjoying it so far and can't wait to see how it all ties together in the end. i think it is a good book.
I had hard time listening to it and doing anything else. i like to do dishes or laundry etc while listening but had to pay attention to understand it.
clear, excited understandable
idk i am not done with it yet but i would read another book from this author just because this one is so good.
