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.
I really enjoyed this book and the narration by Mark Bpyette. I am looking forward to more of Glenn Cooper's books and Mark Boyett's narration.
As other reviewers have said, this book has it all: characters, story, pacing and great narration. It is a nice twist on the Area 51 legend, and really left you wanting to hear more about the characters. Book of Souls, part II, is just as good. Highly recommended.
Cooper is a new read for me and I'm a little torn. Narration is good, stories are good. Just that the transition from one part of the story to the other leaves me wondering what I'm listening to for a second. A moment of brain dead for me.
There are a couple of ho-hum spots but I'll try another since the basic story is good and the jump back is also interesting.
It's slow starting, but definitely worth the wait. Great, in-depth, thought provoking plot and well developed characters. It left me thinking well after it ended. It's a "must read" and worthy of a listen.
List of favorite books: Woodcutter - Reginald Hill, Consent to Kill, First Deadly Sin - Lawrence Sanders, Sniper Elite - Scott McEwen
Probably why I haven't bought any books by the authors that face this book credit. Maybe there's a good story in there somewhere. I can't see it through all the ridiculous chase sceens. Disappointmented....
The story was interesting and I thought the layered timelines moved the plot masterfully. The narrator was quite good - much better than some I've experienced lately. The reason I gave 3 stars was largely due to the unconvincing romance between our hero & his "love," for lack of a better term - I found their interactions forced and uninteresting, their characters ridiculously cliched (many reviews have made note of this problem). Also, lesser twists proved more surprising than the major ones. Still an entertaining "read."
Not only is this story equal in depth to Dan Brown's novels, Cooper has picked the best narrator from which to share it. I kept nodding my head, as I read the book, agreeing with the motivation of each chacter. Really well done!
