Love to get a book that I can't stop reading. I love page turners
Great book kept my interest going and had lots of twist and turns
Love all Scott Brick narrations, he makes it all come alive.
Kept you guess who was good and who were the Bad guys
I love political adventure and historical fiction stories so this sounded like a great read, but it was terrible. The dialog is horribly written. The characters are flat. There are innumerable plot points that don't make any sense. Characters that have never met each other know each other's names and recognize each other on sight. However, a character who is famous for attempting to assassinate the president is from the main character's home town, but when they have a connection, its a huge surprise.
It won't be the sequel to this, and I almost always finish when I start a series, even if I'm not crazy about it.
The main character is supposed to be a humble guy but the reader sounds very arrogant and it doesn't match with the character. He sounds a little better at 1.25 speed, but not much. Also, you can tell whenever a twist or plot point is coming up, because random music will start playing. Super annoying.
I would work on character development and general writing improvement. The author says "the one thing" and "the thing" so many times during the book it could be a drinking game. He has a few other over-used phrases as well.
Just skip it.
Sorry, but after more than 250 audio books, I pretty much know, after the first chapter, whether a book is going to be interesting. Usually I stay with my small core of known authors in my favorite genres and have been satisfied with the results, but every once in a while I'll see a title and read the concept and I'm pleasantly surprised. Sometimes I'll look for a title based on my favorite performers, i.e., Dick Hill, Len Cariou, Scott Brick and others, which is how I found this one. This time, not so much. I don't know if it is the writing or the presentation, but I found listening to this book tedious and boring. Never got to chapter three before deleting it.
Oh, let me count the ways.
The photo on the cover was interesting
Probably not. VERY long.
Eliminate 3 or 4 of the 40 plot changes
I took the advice of a reviewer who said to start with the 1st book. I would be hard pressed to read 2 or 3.
I really enjoyed this book. Well written, interesting subject, suspenseful, great characters, and of course the narrator is one of my favorites! Neither the author or the narrator disappointed in this one.
The climax of the story just wouldn't end. I endured it in 5-minute increments and still am not sure what really happened. I can't tell if it was just really bad writing or overacting by the narrator.
I enjoy all types of mysteries and thrillers, and I think this one had a chance of being really great, but it ended up being too long and almost tedious to the point of being boring. But if you have a long drive or plenty of time to invest, you'll probably enjoy it.
I have been hooked on audio books since 1990!
I liked this book, I really like Brad Meltzer and Scott Brick. I just found that it dragged a bit in the middle so I tended to skip ahead. I prefer a tighter story with less drama.
