I kept drifting and had to back up to the point of losing interest. No distractions, might try again since this did follow an action packed book.
The story was excellent and the narration by George Guidall made it even better. I don't have a lot of time for reading these days and so I have been using audio books as a way to keep abreast of different subject and also works of fiction. This particular book was hugely enjoyable.
This book started off well but got worse. It was tedious.
No. I didn't find it interesting and I didn't want to keep listening to it.
George Guidall is excellent, as always, but even he couldn't make this interesting.
I am surprised by all the good reviews. Just goes to show you, you can't judge a book by its reviews.
If Silva had provided a more balanced and realistic vision of his Muslim enemies, the story would have been vastly improved. I cringed with every stereotype of Palestinians and winced at what seemed like mere Israeli propaganda justifying attacks on Iran.
Silva's stories and characters are excellent.
Not if they have read previous work by Daniel Silva.
Nope. At least not in this series.
He was fine.
Too many books in this series follow the same pattern. Daniel Silva needs to change it up.
IT WENT TO MANY PLACES FOR SUCH A SHORT TIME, THEN IN THE LAST PAGE YOU FINALLY GOT WHAT WAS GOING ON.
I've loved all of the Gabriel Allon books, including this one, primarily because of the characters and the accuracy of the surrounding facts. My only problem with Fallen Angel is I knew what was coming all the time. Previous references to Allon's history were throughout the book (if you haven't read the previous books, too bad for you, but it gets tedious for loyal readers). It almost feels like Fallen Angel was written by formula, brilliant in earlier books, but repetitive here.
The story was formulaic. It was a little tedious to listen to because it was predictable.
It started a little slow for my taste but did not disapoint. If you have listen to all of the Alon series you will be pleasantly surprised to hear Guidell read. It completely changes the characters. Good story, good history and good action.
