what a story!! absolutely wonderfully well written and narrated. draws you in and wraps up "perfectly". the trials that nate goes through are heart breaking but it's amazing to see his transformation.
Off to a great start the book stalls into a downward spiral of every depressing buzzword of the 21st century. Who ever said I want a main character with PTSD ALS divorced and suicidal. Characters are stereotypes approaching caricatures. booooo
edge,of your seat suspense
too many to choose just one
Scott Brick is by far the best on any audio book
This was so good, I listened to it twice but Hurwitz keeps you on the edge of your seat constantly
This book did not disappoint and Scott Brick enhances the enjoyment.
Entertaining but somewhat predictable. Purchased it on sale so worth my money.
Little over-the-top then an army grunt could put down a bunch of professional killers but nonetheless worth listening to.
When I finish a listen, I sometimes like to go back and read reviews just to compare experiences. Another listener commented that the entire premise was preposterous, and that is completely accurate. Completely. But, I can't help but still like this book. This is my third Gregg Hurwitz, and they have similar elements; a man with a troubled childhood is ripped apart from his family, fighting back with an amazing survival instinct and nothing else to lose. Well, call me a sucker, but for whatever reason I'm able to just set my reasoning aside and flow with the story. There is always a strong underdog element going, maybe that's it. There's stuff here that is just done really well in my opinion.
If I did not have my sweet dog to walk and my great treadmill, I would not be able to listen to and enjoy so many Audible books!
The grit of the main character!
Kept me up at night. What a cast of characters, evil, kind, obnoxious...it was a fun and exciting read.
The story started off with a BANG! Then quickly died off. Very depressing. However, the best part is about the first 3 hours. The bank robbery and his life in Iraq.
The entire Ukrainian story line and Cielle
I enjoyed the narrator!
I would not recommend this book
Like the first book by Gregg Hurwitz I read, this one has edge of the seat excitement. He describes just enough to get you right there into the excitement without overload of descriptions. I like that. Another book you won't want to put down.
