Yes. Indeed there are a lot of twists and turns. I went back a few times to make sure I did'nt miss anything. Duh, this is an audiobook, pretty easy to go back and catch it again. And with the Narrator being so easy to listen to, why not?!
Yes. He is always what draws me to decide to buy the book. I think I could listen to anything Alfred Molina narrates!
I was surprised at the really negative reviews. Everyone's different, but this is quite interesting to get so many writers building on previous chapters. Definitely worth it. Money well spent!
Thought it may be disjointed due to the number of authors but it wasn't. The music between the chapters was annoying.
And so are all the authors. The transition from one chapter/writer to the next is flawless. I enjoyed The Chopin Manuscript enormously and now this mystery. Albert Molina narrated with all the talent and skill I've come to appreciate in him. I love his distinctive voice. All in all, this book and the technique are innovative and just plain fun. Let's do it again! Next one, please?
The Chopin Manuscript was so good. I was thrilled to find a sequel. This book was such a disappointment. It was a bloodbath, with characters who did not advance the plot, only existing in one chapter to be killed in the next. This collaboration of authors didn't work, I listened to the whole thing hoping that the story would eventually wrap up neatly, but it ended up as a convoluted mess of a plot that was not worth trying to figure out. In the end, I returned this title. Not worth the time it took to listen to.
Wonderful narration! Nonstop action and fun plot. But, I gave it a four star rating instead of five for the slightly choppy feeling. I'm sure this was due to the many readers, but it took just a little away for me.
A bunch of good authors (among them a few of my favorites) having fun and entertaining themselves. Alfred Molina did a great job with it. It was not more than "ok" though because it was just too obvious what was going on.
I have to wonder how this book would have been written by a single author. The disparate styles did not work for me. Some authors failed to keep up the tempo and excitement of the story, which killed the momentum. The Copper Bracelet feels like a collaborative movie script that was never polished into a cohesive novel. This is definitely "made for the silver screen".
