No, definitely wouldn't. It's a story, where you want to know the who-did-it, but it's not written in a way that makes you want to listen over and over
Ummm, nothing stood out. It was just a story. There is an irritating "know it all" factor about the main investigator, constantly referring to "in the army this" or in the army we ..." and it was a put off. I had read other reviews about the main character having the too perfect feel, and I totally got that.
The narrator couldn't do voices at ALL. The feeling of audio theatre was annoying at first, but once I realised that the narrator couldn't do voices, just read through like the text, it was obvious that a woman's voice was impossible. At times, you couldn't tell when it was the character talking, and when it was them thinking, or back into the story. That was really poor in my opinion. There was music at random times, which isn't really the narrators fault, but it wasn't an epic book, so seemed pretty stupid.
No, it's narrated in a clinical way, following process, etc, so emotion wasn't really involved.
It wasn't a bad book, and the narration wasn't so bad that I felt I had to return it out of frustration, it just feels adequate. I wouldn't bother reading any more about this character, if there are any follow up stories, and the narrator would be a no-go for me.
Very good and entertaining. I'm going to go out to the second book. Seems like it could've been a little better. The end was a little week I thought.
I love books with significance
Another great one. All his books are good. Good character development. The narrator is my favorite voice adding the female voice makes it even better.
I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!
Good narration, fast paced.. good listening book.
It kept you wanting to continue to find out how he solves the case. Least interesting is the comparison to Lee Child's "Jack Reacher". Having read Reacher, this feels like a rip off.
*Spoiler* Sad that Sam died. Some parts are really implausible.. like his backpack with all the stuff you need to defuse a nuke,, and surviving a nuclear blast, hurled 100 feet in the air.. really? Try doing that.. no shattered bones, or crushed skull? really..
I wish the other books go on sale. Then I will buy them, or recommend them.
I enjoyed this greatly. It was a read that kept me guessing and gave a surprise. How good is that?
I thought this book was very good. I am getting use to the multiple narrators and found this reading to be very enjoyable. The extra sound effects were ok, they did tend to have an effect on me late at night as I listened when everyone else was asleep. I felt it had enough twist in the plot to keep you guessing as to what was really going on.
The story kept me engaged all the way through and I look forward to reading more of John Puller.
Very detailed characters. Sometimes so much so that the story was slow moving and hard to follow. The "he said", "she said" got a little monotonous and the character voices sounded too much the same at times. Over all it was a good listen and just enough suspense to keep me interested to the end but I believe the story could've been told with a few less chapters.
