Jeff Gurner pulls you right into each character and the action, right down to a not-so-real giggle. That voice and giggle were beyond anything I would have imagined reading the book.
This book kept my heart pumping, anxious to hear what would come next.
Patrick Lee has earned a place on my short list of authors I will search for new titles. Kudos Mr. Lee!
Difficult to believe that this was a NYT bestseller. The story is weak and not saved by the "surprise" ending. Lots of gratuitous descriptions of violence. (Spoiler: does a good writer really have to split a guy in half with an elevator and describe the wreckage???) Silly, predictable story begging for a movie and a sequel, neither of which I'll be looking for any time soon. Fortunately there are well written sci-fi thrillers out there.
Interesting story idea and I listened to it, but a lot of "bashing in" heads with a crowbar. I don't mind the occasional murder, but a good portion of this book was graphic description of death.
I enjoyed this book, with reservations. It was pretty much non-stop action from start to finish. The performance by Jeff Gurner was great. I also thought the idea of the Breach was clever; the ending reminding me a little of Inception with layers within layers. What I didn't like was the rather formulaic plot line of: women and/or men that have extraordinary military capabilities, but are killed or tricked easily by evil masterminds; ditto brilliant scientists and government strategists. I also get tired of the kick-butt, militarily-adept female who commands men, kills with ease, and has Zena, Princess Warrior capabilities, but always seems to be a brick-shy-of-a-full-load, when things go bad. Come on! There are a host of better ways to have written this book without some of the B-movie parts. Gosh! Just can't wait for the movie!
I couldn't listen to another minute. I tried hard, but men donning invisibility suits was just too much for me to bear.
Absolutely, I'm only 1/2 way through and already going to get the next two. It's just non-stop fun, light sci-fi adventure (in modern day). Feel's like a blockbuster popcorn summer movie.
Pretty hard to. Feels kind of like Fringe or X Files.
He does the voices very well, brings it to life. The best narrators just become invisible and bring the story to life in your mind, he does a great job.
Oh yeah - extreme in the "I'm getting the next ones before this one is done." Just really fun. I'll be up until 5am finishing it tonight.
I really enjoyed the twists n turns while I tried to see what was coming with no way of predicting that! It kept me guessing the whole time as it got better and I enjoyed it more and more! I hope there's more books dealing with the breach!
