Perhaps I am just missing something about the plot, missing documents from the National Archives used to cover a 30 year old personal crime............
Very difficult to match the narrators verbal intensity to the "action" in the book. A big disconnect for me, based on the material Scott Brick had to work with.
Have listened to many Scott Brick narrations, usually good to very good, again, give the material to work with, he delivered.
Probably but, I really got tired of Beacher(the main character). And he got more annoying in The Fifth Assassin.
Ok story you could tell it was a set up for another book.
Yes he did a great job!!!
Maybe with Beacher not being so bitchy.
I'm listening to this book again in preparation for the sequel about to come out. The story is good, but both times I found parts of the story and all of the narration to be very, very overly dramatic. It bothered me the first time (to the point that I try to avoid Scott Brick), but now that I'm listening again, it's difficult for me to get through it. This is one of the times when I wished I'd just bought the hard copy.
This book was interesting and exciting but I hope if Brad Melzer is going to complete the story, it will be available soon. There are too many loose ends which left me very dissatisfied in the end.
This is a horrible book. One star is too many. Poorly written. Horribly performed. Ridiculously performed. Plot is a bad joke. I thought it was hard to get published
Loved the book. I enjoyed the twists in the story, the Author kept me guessing. Loved the history within the story also. The main character is a nice change from the bold, confident type.
I love Scott Brick -- he is by far my favorite reader. So I'm not sure if it was his performance or the words on the page. But THE DRAMA!!!!! So ANGSTY!!!!! And the book was too long and often repeated itself.
I have to admit that I'm a stickler for pronunciation...I had my "nerve set on edge" by the nariator's mispronounciation of some of the words in the story. That said, it's a good listen.
Perhaps it was Mr Brick's performance - perhaps it was the novel itself -- but if ever hear a character say, "you're not listening" again it'll be too soon. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
I usually enjoy Brad Meltzer's books, but this one just seemed to fizzle. Great detail and history, but a very weak storyline. I was aggravated and relieved when it was over....
