Exciting plot but the characters are cartoonish, particularly the evil ones, and the plot is based on absurd assumptions as to the characters' motivations, thoughts and actions.
The series gets better and better. The first book was good, but I still had my doubts. The 2nd and this book hooked me.
Exciting, exciting, exciting
Absolutely. In his distinctive, subdued style, Dewey is pure energy ready to strike.
Peter is back, and he is perfect for this series. Check out Private if you like Peter.
Hold on for the ride!
I think everyone addicted to audiobooks agrees that the narration can make or break a book. At least that's my call. Peter Hermann is amazing. He's German, Russian, American, Iranian, you name it. I am no linguist but I get the picture regardless of language. Coe provides the story, Hermann brings it to life.
Can't wait for the next Coe. There has to be a #5, right?
Great series. I spent the last half of the book thinking of actors to play all the different brilliant characters he's made.
Sure, Why not?!
Dewy, hands down. He's a great character. Dewy is one of those characters that you think about in real life situations. i.e "What would Dewy do?" The guy is so much fun to follow through the stories of deception, espionage, romance, terror, victory and sometimes his own brand of hard line justice.
I have read the first 3 Dewey Andreas sagas. They are great. Dewey has replaced Mitch Rapp as my favorite character ( Since there will be no more of Mitch due to Mr. Flynn's passing ) I enjoy Mr. Coes work as much as Clive Cussler, Patrick Robinson, Ted Bell, Srephen Coonts. Tom Clancy.and Brad Thor. These are all top notch writers. I am ready for Eye For An Eye.
Audible allows me to fill my mind with something so much better than TV.
It rates with my favorite Vince Flynn book with the Mitch Rap Series.
The deep intrigue of what it taking place in our world today to the point where it could be a news headline.
I like his delivery until he starts speaking so low for effect that I have to rewind in order to understand what he is saying. Just a small glitch.
Yes, that was the hard part because I could not donate all the time at once that was required.
Hope the rest of the series don't disappoint. I sincerely doubt it.
It's up there, but ranking stuff becomes problematic.
Ben Coes other Dewey Andreas novel's come to mind.
He is dead on with the right vocal cues and everything all the time. Probably the biggest thing is not just talent but he has a voice you can listen to. Not everyone has that quality and you really appreciate it when you hear a book who's narrator just grates on your nerves. Hermann is excellent though and I could listen to him for days on end.
I would say there were a lot of times when I was disappointed that my drive wasn't a little bit longer.
The nuclear bomb thing is getting a little tired and old as far as books and movies go. Ironically it is probably becoming a bigger threat in real life, but I'll try to stick to reviewing the book.
A lot of the book has a gritty real feeling that makes you appreciate not living in a country like Iran. The bad guys this time are Iranians who want to nuke Israel and nearly accomplish it. Everything comes together fairly well and it works, although the cumulative effect of thinking about a guy being held in Iran and tortured wears on me. I don't want to give anything away, but someone Dewey knows is kidnapped and held for most of the book. I want him to escape or something sooner than later. I think it's a structural flaw that you either like or don't.
Despite all that, and I'm trying hard to come up with flaws, the book is a masterpiece.
