Great real world story line.
Clive Cussler's work.
No. Thought narration was distracting. Having a man narrate a woman;s portion is okay as long as it is none done in a high pitched voice.
An interesting story but the language is horrible. I didn't finish it because of the language issue to me this is quite disappointing.
A complete moron
Shot the narrator, and then found someone with half a brian
I was only able to stomach 30 minutes of it. He makes the "hit" team sound like a bunch of excited school girls, not professionals. He makes the president and general sound like a couple of NY City Thugs - just horrible.
I felt like throwing up
This was an excellent novel, especially for the first one from a new author. I chose to read this book because I knew Brad Taylor in college and honestly I wasn't expecting much since the other reviews were horrible. I was amazed what a great book it was. The story was fascinating and every turn kept me on the edge of my seat. The characters felt real and I was right there with Pike and Jennifer from the US, South America, and Europe. Although the book is fiction, the book was written from a knowledge base that made the story believable. Not like some books where you think "that could never happen". Brad did a great job writing the book and I can't wait to read the next one.
The only thing I found distracting was having a man do a poor imitation of Jennifer's voice in the book. If a book is going to have two narrators, maybe the one who does the woman's voice should be a woman? Otherwise overall great audio book!
Or I would have wasted a credit. The narration is beyond bad , it is absolutely horrific. Not only is it a terrible attempt of acting, but the voices do not match the characters. I was 16 chapters in before I had called it quits. As for the author, comparisons to Vince Flynn & Brad Thor are laughable. I may try to read the book, but I will have to wait a few days for the memory to leave my head.
The story line was fantastic. This would be an EXCELLENT read but (just) very good on audio; not excellent only because it takes a while to overcome the different character voices. I actually hated it at first because being in the military (22+ years) I know we don't talk like that. Some of the characters sounded stupid with the chosen voices used by the reader(s). The story line and action, however, was great enough for me to overcome the flaw. I was very close to turning it off but, it grabbed me and kept me on the roller coaster.
