The plots are winding together and some fresh characters are needed. Alion has to be getting tired between restoring the paints, trying to get his wife pregnant, and saving the world.
This broke the rut that the author had fallen into. Different plot from the last few. The narration was fine but I've been listening to these since the beginning of the series and this is the third voice for Gabriel. It will just take some getting used to.
Yet another in the Gabriel Allon series with plot twists and turns and world terrorism thrown in. For someone who likes the Allon books, this is one they would like.
Guidall is great.
No, never listen to any book twice, but can't wait for the next.
Love the characters, feel like I know them well.
It's like watching a movie in 3D, George does a great job.
I was saddened to listen to the story and feel that my hero is getting older, seems to have lost his "edge".
Too muchtime was spent listening to the comments of Allon's superiors and colleagues reminding Allon that he is getting older and might not be up to the mission assigned. Otherwise, the story was only a little better than mediocre. One could almost believe that Shamran was more up to the task than our hero.
Compared to the other books by DeSilva and the main character, Allon, it was disappointing? Where is the suspense? I could determine the ending of the story once I was only 10 pages into the book.
DeSilva has been one of my favorite authors, up until now. Spiffy up Allon, get his energy and excitement back, his always knowing how to handle any situation with valor and confidence as in all the previous novels, even if he gets a bit older.
Yes, I'm willing to give the author another chance.
Not sure. He is however a wonderful narrator
Choose another book, The Fallen Angel is not the best!
No more "dark" novels.
George is one of the great story teller's
A must see from 1 of the greatest suspence novelist the world has ever heard known
This is a story that keeps silva readers from putting it down
George Guidall did a great job narrating this book. The story line was well developed and kept me interested.
"things that matter most must never be at the mercy of things that matter least."
Fallen Angel ranks in the top 50%
Story complexity falls between a Brad Thor and a Dan Brown novel. The darkness of Gabriel reminds me a bit of David Baldacci's Oliver Stone, in the Camel Club series. Both characters have secrets, and pain that will never be extinguished.
Accents really make the story come alive. I appreciated his subtle changes between characters. It was almost a readers' theatre!
Some conspiracy theories aren't just theories.
My first novel of the series that I read was The Rembrandt Affair. What drew me to this series was the detailed descriptions of fine art pieces, their historical importance and the rich complexity of Mr. Alon, who is someone who kills, and someone who also restores and brings life to artworks.
While the story was good, if not a bit stretched on the conspiracy theory assumptions, I missed the art restorer. I never got to visualize the Caravaggio.
The interwoven discussions of the black market trading of the ancient arts and a murder plot.
Gabriel Allon, of course, as he is the hero of each of the series.
They should have known that he wouldn't let them get away with it!
I have read or listened to all of th Gabriel Alllon books, and this is not his best. It starts off a little slow, but then gets better. Also not one of my one of favorite narrators. He did not do a very good job of capturing the Israeli accents. The Ari Shamron voice was particularly weak.
Unvaried, monotonous, limited.

Would still recommend it if you have listened to all of the otherSilva//Allon
