Scott Brick is at his best when he's reading DeMille's smart-ass John Corey. This was a fantastic, tightly plotted, well written, well read thriller.
The Lion is as good as the Lion's Game, which is my all time favorite audible listen. Scott Brick is flawless!
Readable, as is all DeMille, but the good guy/ bad guy formula is tired this time out. I finished it but didn't feel good about it.
The story was interesting and flowed pretty well, but I think that John Corey put himself into too many ridiculous situations. I imagine that Demille did this to make the first person narrative of John Corey work, but to me it made the story line inconsistent. With this said, I will still eagerly await the next John Cory addition.
Scott Brick does a tremendous job, as usual.
Great book! Love John Cory and Scott Brick is him without a doubt! Waited forever for this book and am glad there will be at least one more in the series. Love Nelson Demille and the characters he makes up-they have such a sense of humor that you find yourself laughing outloud in your car as you listen!
I love it when they use the same narator from one book to another, it keeps character you already you have formed in your head alive.
Although Scott Brick does a fantastic job as usual, he does start off a little monotone. However, he picks it up quickly.
Loved the book, I hope there is another book in the John Corey series.
I was not disappointed, LOVED this book and Scott Brick brings it to life! A great sequel to The Lions Game! It also reminds you that we can never feel as safe & as separate from the rest of the world as we did pre 9/11.
I listened to this book first and apparently the previous book was actually the first (lions game). This book is better than the first but has a few weak spots. However, overall it was an enjoyable listen.
