I have hesitated in writing this review as I hate to be negative. However, I can barely finish listening to this audio book. The narration is so poor that it spoils the story. I can't imagine anyone talking the way these characters are presented. I will struggle through to the end but be prepared for the narration to get in the way of the story. This from a Lee Child, Jack Reacher enthusiast!
I can only say that it is so sad when the story is over and you have to wait until the next book!
I dont believe I would. I thought this book started very slow, did not get my attention and I just dont care for his style.He writes the words
Possibly but not likely
I dont care for his style either and this may have added to my dislike of the book. Hill can read but he cannot act (so to speak).
I do not know, I could only get about a third of the way through the book. Maybe I will attempt to give it another listen at a later date.
To be honest, this book is more than
I couldn't finish the book because the narrator is so awful. I promise myself never to download anything by Dick Hill and then I forget! His reading of women's voices is sooo annoying.
I tried to be patient and wait for the story to erupt but I couldn't make it past the first 30 minutes. A combination of the narrator (a voice far too old for the character) and a mind numbing overly long lead up to whatever exciting/intriguing thing that was supposed to happen. I might have been able to forgive some of it if the prose had been remotely engrossing. Big zeros across the board on this. I wish I could get back my money and my time.
I didn't want to stop listening! I love the Jack Reacher character. He's just a lover, fighter, and great investigator. I especially enoyed the short childhood introduction at the end.
Only Timothy Olyphant could be Reacher. I just don't think there are many others who could carry it off
