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.
I was so excited when I heard this book was coming out. It's a sequel to the novel "The Lion's Game", and yes, I think you need to read that one first. However, it won't be a chore. The main character, John Corey, is entertaining, funny, sarcastic, lovable and delightfully unpredictable. Added to this brilliant character is some fantastic storyline - a thriller in every sense.
"The Lion" met every expectation, every hope I had about this sequel. The plot was satisfying in that it answered a lot of questions while still being suspenseful and packed with humor - a great combo, in my opinion.
Scott Brick was genius as usual. I've said in other reviews that he IS John Corey - no one else could ever narrate these books but him. Even the author agrees, thankfully. So, no worries about bad narration detracting from the storyline.
I have yet to find a single person who hasn't thoroughly enjoyed the John Corey novels. If you haven't tried it yet, I would ask what you're waiting for.
