Love a good book. I am usually reading one and listening to one in my car (not at the same time, of course). I like just about any fiction.
Let me start by saying that Ray Porter is great. I think he kept me interested more than the storyline. The concept was solid but there did not seem to be a lot of depth. There were a couple of points in the story where the author was rambling and it did not have any useful information. There were other points in the story where he had a chance to do more character developement and did not. I did not find the twins to be all that interesting and were very shallow. If you enjoyed the first book in the series ( Patient Zero ) you will be a bit dissappointed with this one. The action was run of the mill type of stuff, you don't really get to know Joe Ledger or any of his team any better than in the first book. I enjoy books that are part of a series because you get to see the characters grow throughout the books. This book left me wanting more twists and turns, more action, and more character developement. Not sure if I will continue with the series.
I really liked listening to this story. It was a fast paced wild story with excellent narration. Even though it is Fiction there seemed to be many historical facts inserted. I also liked the first book, Patient Zero, with the same talented narrator, Ray Porter, who makes both books an easy listen. I have also become a Jonathan Maberry and Ray Porter fan.
I totally enjoyed Jonathan Maberry preposterous storyline! And how the characters seem to take anything -- dismemberment, explosions, mad scientists -- in stride. I love how, in the middle of an outlandish scene, there will be a totally matter of fact conversation. The evil twins, for example, discussing whether they are Evil Monsters or not as if they were discussing whether they were popular in high school. Keep it coming, Mr. Maberry! And keep reading, Mr. Porter. A truly spectacular performance.
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.
Think Jack Reacher meets Jurassic Park--kind of. Nonstop action. I thoroughly enjoyed this thriller. Great literature? I don't think so. But, I didn't want to stop listening to this book. The reader is great and the story is escapist fun.
Jonathan Maberry will be on my "to read/listen" list going forward.
Recently started the Joe Ledger books. This second ones maintains the pace and energy of the first, with a bigger crisis. I'll be curious to see if he's able to maintain the story line with new books, given the life expectancy of one of his characters.
The story fits right in worth today's society and how evil people can be . Very suspenseful and worth the listen 🙂
Before purchasing this book I read several negative reviews, however since I loved the first book in the series so much I had to of course listen to this one as well.
Let me just start by saying the negative reviews are wrong, most of them hated the sexual content of the book, while I personally took no offense to it. I found they served a purpose in the story line and were necessary, they showed certain characters nature.
This book has it all, hate, love, sex, death, life, fear, depravity, suspense, bravery, heroes, villains, joy and heart-break.
The story and narrator were wonderful and I throughly enjoyed every moment spent listening to this pulse pounding work of fiction.
Narration of the book was excellent!
The book kept my interest and I am looking for more books in the series to listen to.
As always Joe Ledger..never lets me down.. I'm excited to begin book 3. Church,Top,&Bunny stay true to character. Ray Porter brings the story to life as usual..
