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.
I passed this one up a few times while looking through audiobooks. The story seemed a bit "meh" from the description. After listening i can tell you that's not the case. The story moves quick and keeps you interested, the book starts with action and keeps a steady pace all the way through I've already recommended it to friends. If you're on the fence, do yourself a favor and give it a listen.
The narrator was good but the voices he uses for some of the women are a bit odd and breathy. Otherwise, well done.
Literally unbelievable actions
The suspense never relaxed. The protagonist was never in control--ever!
In spite of the overly dramatic somewhat hushed tone of the reading, it seemed to work with the characters and the story.
Not much laughter. Some surprise at the "over the top" situations.
This would have been a much more believable story if not for certain way "over the top" scenes such as the public strip-tease narration of the tattoos. Totally unbelievable! Also, there were certain devices used by the daughter--such as "I never get a say..." that would have been very believable if not for the life and death threat levels. Really!!!? A teen age girl gets to run the show at critical moments??? Just stupid. This would be a parody of a horror movie because of that alone. All of the other coincidences and lucky escapes are easier to accept.
