I strongly suspect that Brad Metzer is a bit on the brilliant side which is pretty much reflected
in The Inner Circle. And wow the twists and turns - truly a who done it. And although it was a bit long, I can see the need to explore all the interactions.
I'd listen again.
Above the middle, but not at the top. This was a good thriller with a lot of historical content that got wrapped into a fairly believable conspiracy theory. A definite recommend on this book.
The whit of the main character.
I love Scott Brick. He is one of my favorite readers.
Yes, but unless the book is really horrid I want to listen to them in one sitting.
Have 300 other books in different accounts.
From Brad yes, from Brick no. The way he adds his own cadence and inflection is annoying and difficult to over come.
To read yes, but to listen, no.
Anyone except Brick or Dick Hill. The way they narrorate takes away from the books.
Authors should really be involved more with the narroration of their books. This seems like an obvious conclusion, but I cannot believe that any accomplished author would listen to either of these narrorators read their book and be 100% satisfied.
This book is pretty bad. The characters do the most illogical things such as get threatend by a gun, save the bad guy and then shoot the girlfriend; accidentally kill a pleasant character with chemotherapy drugs; accuse the president of being corrupt with no evidence of corrupt behavior whatsoever; president saves his sister and then abandons her when she tries to commit suicide; a barber commits suicide for no reason; a main character thinks he's George Washington, and he turns out to be the smart guy! Jeez..... I was so thankful when it ended and my misery of listening to this book finally ended.
Love John Grisham, David Balducci and Brad Meltzer books.
Scott Brick did a good job with the readings, but the material was subpar. Brad Meltzer is not the author for me anymore.
David Balducci has yet to let me down. The Camel Club Series is phenomenal.
I would try Scott Brick, but I have officially given up on Brad Meltzer.
The synapses of the story is good, but the characters I could not connect with or like.
I truly enjoy Brad Metzer's writing and this was a great story.
If Dan Brown wasn't a hack he'd wish he could write a story like The Inner Circle.
Just interesting and well-written.
Scott Brick is a fabulous narrator.
I found this a very enjoyable book
It kept my attention. I couldn't wait to get back to the book.
I found the charactors interesting and it lead very good into the fifth Assassin.
I usually like a book that I can't predict what's going to happen next, but this one was over the top. Too many twists and turns. I still liked the story, but I didn't like all the red herrings and questions I had about who was or wasn't a good guy.

I did not like this book and I don't really understand the thrill most people seem to have gotten from it. I haven't finished, but I will. I dread picking it up because there are other books I want to read, but I do want to find out how it ends. The characters are all pretty unlikeable. We normally enjoy Scott Brick, but I have just gotten really tired of this one. I was going to get the Fifth Assassin when I saw this was the first in the series. I won't get the next one. A friend was reading the Fifth Assassin and disliked it so he donated it to the library. He said he had read Inner Circle and barely made it through also. I guess I am just not a fan. It really seems to drag for me.
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.
