captivating, very engaging reader (Scott)
Besides the main character? Emma.
Did not listen to Scott before. This one is awesome though.
OK this is why they call them voice actors rather than narrators.
Scott really nailed the accent and mannerisms.
Born in NY and raised on Long Island his voice brought me back to NY.
I'm not sure because I didn't read the print version, but I did enjoy the audio edition.
It kept moving and the characters were easily developed. I also grew up on eastern Long Island so it was fun to picture all the places mentioned
Emma was one of my favorites. She was a strong and interesting character with a good sense of humor.
Greed feeds a murderers appetite on the North Fork.
Was certainly worth the credit used.
I enjoyed the book, wasn't disappointed, nice turns
don't really have one
really can't complain, very nice overall.. I like when you "hear" a story, and wish someone else was reading, I like this one,.
I've previously read all of the books in the John Corey series, but they don't get old. I've decided to go back and go through them all again. John Corey is my favorite character of all time. I easily relate to his sarcasm and sometimes crude humor. A better narrator than Scott Brick can not be found. Great author, great performance, great story.
Another good piece of writing by the author and this narrator is addicting.
The twists and turns.
Near the top. Perhaps the 90th percentile.
He is the bomb. Consistently well performed.
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.
I haven't read in print.
You might also enjoy Clancy's books.
Scott Brick is a true star. He can make almost anything he reads come to life.
Yes, but it would have been impossible because of the length. I did listen over a few days.
The first book I read in the "John Corey" was "After Dark.. I have had to go back and listen to them all from there. Now I will move on to the next and the next.
Not sure after this one, the main character was so bad I have trouble believing he would create anything I would enjoy.
None, his characters were all about being annoyed and insulted by an obnoxious main character making them all unlikeable.
Disappointment, long and slow moving with just never ending internal dialogue by this horrible main character.
I was looking for something exciting to start into after finishing the Mitch Rapp series which I thoroughly enjoyed. This book was longer but was painfully slow and the characters were so unlikeable it was difficult to finish.
The only positive note was this narrator is terrific, given better material he would be a pleasure to listen to.
Love long books. The longer the audiobook, the better. Plum Island is twenty hours and fits the bill. Also, love Scott Brick, the narrator of Plum Island. Scott does a terrific job, especially with the lead character, John Corey, homicide investigator. After listening to well over half of the book, however, I can’t hang in there anticipating a story to develop. The artful dialogue of John Corey’s sarcasm is brilliantly conveyed, not only in the writing, but especially in the narration. But, nobody is that obnoxious, lending credibility to the character is impossible. The flippant sexual snipes are insulting, and in some circumstances would result in the ass getting himself and his police department sued. It is not often that I can’t continue listening to a novel, but I’ve punished myself enough with this one. There are no characters to care about, in my opinion. The mystery of a diabolical plague or other act of terror has not yet risen to the surface in this book, and I’ve suffered through over ten hours. I’m done.
