The story started out a bit slow for me, the backtracking anyway. The story took off tho and I was entertained
When i first bought the book i thought ok Die Hard meets Man on a ledge this might be fun but no idea how the plot and character devlopment would keep me glued to the book
Because he wasn't the classic hero he is but like the rest of us he just trying to save his family and he has nothing to loose
No sorry i haven't but i will look for him in the future
Die Hard meets Man on a Ledge
Hurwitz has joined my group of favorite authors. He does It all. Great story, interesting characters, and lots of fast paced action. His books are batting a thousand so far. Add Scott Brick as the narrator and you have a winner. Brick is one of my all time favorites. I have no doubt I'll read every one.
The book is extremely interesting because it battles issues that are sometimes hard to talk about and hard to deal with. My only complaint is that I wish the narrator would be more distinction vocally between the different characters in the family otherwise I have to say this is an excellent book and worthy of your time to listen to
This book takes U in from the start....U'll think U know where it's going but U don't....I can see it made into a movie....the reader really keeps U in & evolved. ...really enjoyed it....r
Great read. Exciting and action packed yet there was room for his love of friends and family to permeate through the story.
I like classic sf/fantasy best, but urban fantasy a'la Butcher & The Hollows hits a place, too. I own 4 cats, 3 Bengals & a stray I adopted.
And what's too much for me is the suspension of disbelief required . . . no, better to call it shark jumping. It's hard to explain without spoilers, so I'll just say a shark's jumped very early on, and thereafter one after another, ad nauseum. There's enough thriller in this book for five or six books--so much that by story's end I had lost all empathy for the good guys and was just glad it was over.
Scott Brick was great though. This the the second book he's narrated I've listened to, and I haven't been particularly thrilled with either, no fault of his. I'm really looking forward to the day I find something that has the content to be worthy of his narrative ability.
If you like books reminiscent of Schwarzenegger's "Commando", then this'll be right up your alley. Not my cuppa, though.
