I did not read the print version. But narration in this book was awesome.
Agent Will Piper. He is AMAZINGLY human and faulty, but loveable and smart as well.
Yes, the first Will Piper book! Both books are amazing.
Yes. It was anxiety provoking and action packed.
The Agent Will Piper series s fantastic. I hope it is more than 2 books in the end.
I suggest reading Secret of the Seventh Son first. It is the first in the duo. I especially liked how the author worked in historical characters and Area 51 into a plausible history of The Library.
This was as thrilling and suspenseful as Glenn Cooper's "Secret of the Seventh Son." Read that one first and Book of Souls will be more enjoyable because its events take place after "Secret...." The narrator was excellent managing the different roles and varied accents with ease. Both books weave an interesting story starting with 8th century Britain to the present. If you close your eyes you can vividly picture the monks, the abbey and the present day events. I lost 3 lbs. listening to it because I did so only when on my treadmill. The desire to hear what was going to happen next encouraged many impromptu treadmill sessions. Both books were awesome!
It is the second part of his book Secret of the Seventh Son and I loved both. Book of Souls at the end the story sort of looses grip, but overall it is a great read.
If you haven't read Secret of the Seventh Son, first go and listen to that absolutely incredible book and then come back. If you have then you know how great Glenn Cooper is at weaving a complex narrative.
Will Piper is back in this one, dragged back to the mystery surrounding the Doomsday Killer and the library. This story plays out like a fast-paced thrill ride as Will tries to save himself and his family from the truth that may never be known for 17 more years.
The narrator is spot-on, delivering accents and different vocalizations I swear were from a cast of speakers. He makes ever word believable and the story is so well thought out that you will be shaking from the easy cross-over into reality that is garnered here. I won't say the story is as good as Secret of the Seventh Son as that was perfection, but this author is as well-versed on history and thought-provoking concepts as anyone I have read.
I really enjoyed "Secrets of the Seventh Son" and looked forward to this sequel. I found it fun and very entertaining with a terrific narrator of Mark Boyett. Although I had to suspend disbelief many times throughout this book, I still liked it a lot.
Will Piper's infidelity and Nancy's subsequent, "Oh honey I totally accept you as you are" was pure male fantasy, but I like flawed heros and he is one flawed hero.
I loved all the reinvention of history with Shakespeare and Nostradamus. And the idea of knowing one's date of death is very intriguing.
good plot with plenty of twists and turns. Narrator did a good job, but wish he could have done better on distinguishing different characters. Want more from this author.
The writing style is a very effective blend of current day and historical background. The mix works well and seems to arrive at just the point that the reader is looking for more information. The plot was sufficiently complex to make it an enjoyable listen. Well done.
A very different type of story. The story line was clever and unique, albeit a slightly weak. I did enjoy it though because it was never predictable. Beautifully narrated, one of the best I've ever listened to.
Actually not Deborah, but Donald. My wife opened the Amazon account and suddenly my Audible account became hers. I'm a basic 63 year old type guy who runs a lot and listnes to books as I run. It was a dark and stormy night ... but I still did 5 miles.
This book is more .. more of the great writing from his first book. (Secret of the Seventh Son). Read it first!
This book is more, picks of the story from the first book.
This book is more - it continues mystery, brings in historical characters, moves seamlessly through time - and has a great story line.
This book is more of the same from Cooper. That happens to be very good.
