Dont let the narrarator ruin your listening to a good book! I read waaay to many "critics" who go on and on about a bad narrarater, so what!
First, the book is pretty good! I LOVE Coreys wisecracks and would actually re-listen to get a laugh, his wife doesn't play a big enough role due to a situation. It has a few twists but not many and is fairly predictible and requires quite a suspension of disbelief. Lastly, as someone who has no use for manhattan, this is the last book I will listen to from Audible that is based in New York, the writer(s), Brick, story line is ALL New York this and New York that. I considered my time there for a job years ago as serving time in prison.
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.
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.
