Best-the subject matter.
Worst-poor character and story development. Plot was unconvincing.
Be more selective next time.
Looking at our Middle East problem & getting a better understanding of the problem from the point of Israel.
I enjoyed all of them. Great narration.
Yes, but if necessary, it's easy to get your heart back in it.
All of Daniel Silva's books are good.
While this is another Gabriel Allon novel, it seemed to illustrate a few real issues/peeves of the author: treatment (bad) of women in the islamic world, dedication of the radical jihad adherents against western morals and views and spy trade craft...to name a few. I couldn't help drawing those conclusions even though the story was fictitious. Well researched, I'd say.
Big fan of Simon Vance, and enjoyed earlier Gabriel Allon stories, so I had to give this one a listen. While it's somewhat formulaic in its plot, the characters in this story are well-drawn, the politics are sufficiently nuanced, and the geographic detail realistic enough to allow even a cynic like me to suspend belief and just get caught up in the adventure and intrigue.
I have read all the books in this series, this is the first time I listened to one. I enjoyed it as well. Gabriell is such a great character you just have to want everything to go well for him. I'm always rooting for him to find some peace and time to just paint, however, that wouldn't make for a good story so im happy he is always brought back to work.
The narration is a bit odd ... the Israelis come across a bit like Transylvanians, like Count Dracula, especially Shamron and Allon.
But a great story!
Silva does a good job of engaging the reader- and keeping them engaged
settings a bit familiar to other books of his.
It ranks right up there with the best
The history that comes with it and the enterplay between the characters.
I am afraid I am not very good at remembering who the performers are. I did enjoy his performance!
History comes alive
I felt lost with the new narrator. It is like I do not know the characters anymore because their voices are different. I really loved how Phil Gigante brought Gabriel and the other characters to life.
Listening allowed me to grasp the 'accent' and 'flavor' of this well told story that is alarmingly all too close to the truth.
I would highly recommend this audio book.
