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.
As always, Scott Brick is awesome. The story kept my interest and I certainly don't regret listening to it. At times it seems a bit cheesy and there are points in the story where you want to strangle the characters for being stupid but I guess it's no different than most thrillers. The author peaked my interest with his TV show. I've been listening to a ton of fantasy lately and this was a nice change. I would recommend.
Some plots are easy, others trying, this one melds characters I want to smack in the face with plot lines sometime mundane and easy to predict. However the performance, for which I attribute my profound visceral reaction to yell Beecher while hitting a wall, is spot on. Give this a listen if you are patient and like not knowing too much backstory, though the time jumps don't always make sense.average story for a rating of 3/5.
