Really bad bad guys, mad scientists, mosters, evil plots to take over the world, hidden underground lairs, a secret government agency, none-stop action, and the baddest good guy ever - Joe Ledger. This is a great book.
To top it off Ray Porter's narration is world class, some of the best I've ever heard.
I'm becoming a big fan of Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter.
I have read and listened to several of the Joe Ledger tales and this is by far my favorite! I hope to keep up with the series finding something equally as capturing.
Jonathan Maberry is exciting as any high voltage Thriller today but he has a soul and the characters are great. It's all totally out there but great great stories usually based on a bit of fact. And Ray Porter, the narrator, is Jonathan Maberry in another body. great stuff better than any action movie
I was so into the first book of this series but could not get into this one. There was no carryover of the story line from book one. New nemesis, new looming disaster. It felt like I was dropped into the middle of a new story after some unknown amount of time had passed.
I guess I'm disappointed the first story wasn't continued.
I really enjoyed this book. It's full of action and is a great follow-up to book one. The narration of this one is pretty great. There are times when the voices the narrator uses are a little off, not sounding like the character being portrayed or sounding like a different character, but there are times where, unless I am mistaken, you can hear real emotion in the narrator's voice. This, for me, added tremendously to the audio experience. I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for an action-packed read/listen and great narration.
I thought the story was good and the performance was good. The reader did a good job separating the characters. But story is broken up into many small segments and the reading goes from one segment right into the next. There is no separation, no pause or dead air to let the listener know a change is taking place.
The reader has his repertoire of voices. But sometimes, the voices used in back-to-back segments are the same, but are meant for different characters in each segment. Without better spacing between segments, it is easy to become confused.
But, in the end, I would recommend this story.
