Great story, Great plot , Great Narration,
Coes clearly knows nothing about Australia, and absolutely nothing about Aviation. I hate how he writes so much detail that is so wrong, Even basic stuff like a C130 (or any airplane is made from Aluminium, not Steel ) they don't have steel wings, nor steel panels - so wrong, Even referring to steel cable as wire , so wrong !! He has no idea of basic physics let alone flight dynamics - so don't go into so much detail that is so clearly wrong. Needs a Aviation consultant !! Also needs an Australia Consultant - everything he wrote on geography and culture is so wrong it next time use Google !!
Top marks to the Narrator
At least he got it right about Fosters , ...... it is p*** water :)
The Dewey Andreas books have me hooked. Keep bringing them on!
His fluency with accents adds immeasurably to the story telling
The accents were so bad it was distracting. The Indians and Pakistanis sounded Scottish and the Israelis sounded French. Other than that the book was 'ok'. The writer requires that you abandon certain parts of reality like, physics and the level of qualifications in the US clandestine or special ops world... But other than that it's ok.
Good book. Moves quickly. Great character development.
Great narrator. Wish he read the entire series.
Post apocalyptic listener with some thrillers mixed in. Follow me on twitter at @drewsant
The second book in the Dewey Andreas series was much better than the first book although it took a while to get going. The first third of the book sets the stage with a lot of back story and not much action, but once Dewey gets involved it starts to pick up. It contains a bit of over the top nationalism but it’s a good ride none the less with a lot of action to keep it going.
Mr. de Vries does a great job with the narration and all of the accents that are needed.
David's Pakastani and Indian accents are perfect.
From time to time, Ben, or his editors, need to do some fact checking, For example, C-130s have aluminum not "steel" wings, and the Eurocopter Panther has a pair of turbine engines running jet fuel not "gas."
I listened to Ben Coes first book and wrote a review praising the research and the attention to detail. I listened to this book expecting the same and was keenly being Australian was keenly interested in the part of the story based here. I was sadly disappointed in the small things, calling a police officer deputy, no such thing as deputy here in Australia, try Constable. And using miles instead of KM's. Australia hasn't used this terminology for over 30 years.
My only other gripe is the way the 'terrorists' are portrayed and they words and language used, I know we all hate terrorists, but the way these terrorists and the language they use is beyond a joke and is unrealistic. I don't recall another spy type thriller where the islamic terrorists constantly used the word Fuck.
