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.
Having been a long term devoted Jack Reacher fan we looked forward to this new audible book. Sad to say the reader is one of the worst we've heard and absolutely trashes the book with a pseudo-East Coast tough guy accent that is both inappropriate to the character and almost painfully bad to listen to. Skip the audible version!
