So-so. Good plot,story line and fulfilling ending but nearly ruined by Corey's constant, seldom amusing spoken and unspoken sarcastic attempts at humor.
The worst so far
OK but stilted.
Yes,Harrison Ford,Erica Durance and Travolta reprising Brenner
A heavier editing hand toward brevity would have contributed to the gravity of the subject.
Could have been shorter. Some of the details are excellent but then sometimes it is just way to many details. Mr. Demille needs to leave more to the readers imagination.
Yeah if you enjoy this series than of course, for those who don't have the time spare it and go with a Vince Flynn novel.
When they were tracking the panther in the Al Quada village.
No to many details.
Don't try to make the lead character in this book to be a comedian. I thought the concept was great. But, I hated the attempts to be funny or a smart a** or whatever the goal was.
Ending was good.
The author tried to hard and much, much, much too often to make the lead character funny and an irreverent smart a**. I was tired of it within an hour, much less 18 hours.
The plot was good. The book could have been 1/3 shorter if the author wasn't trying to be so funny with the lead character. This is the last book by DeMille that I will read (listen to).
Not really, it's good, but not a re-read, (unlike night fall, by Nelson demille)
The deception by the CIA, the war on terror, lots of interesting info
Scott brick is a wonderful narrator
I enjoy the audio edition of DeMille's work -- I have more time to listen than to read.
The narrator's portrayal of John Corey.
I purchased the audio version just because of his other DeMille audios.
I have read most all of DeMille's books and consider him one of my favorite authors. Actually, I have a hard time believing he wrote this book. It seems more to be written by a high schooler whose assignment was to imitate his favorite author.
Nelson DeMille can be witty and inventive, but this book is inept and inane. It is plotless, repetitive, and full of stupid one-line zingers.
Only if he can pick a better book to read.
Extreme disappointment - to the extent that I will not risk wasting my time with another Nelson DeMille book.
Well written and well read.
DeMille's other John Corey novels.
One of the best readers today.
Irreverent terrorist hunter gets in hot water, again!
This is quite a long book and I felt that if the author kept most of John Corey's thoughts to himself, instead of either verbalizing them or letting us know what he's thinking, the book would be half as long. I can't understand why his wife is still with him as he is embarrasing to listen to. The story is interesting.However it's drawn out with the conversation that's never verbalized yet printed.
A Vince Flynn or other thriller.
Yes.he does Clive Cussler books.
FELT THE ENDING LEFT TOO MANY QUESTIONS. IF THE CIA HAS TRIED TO KILL THEM TWICE, WON'T THEY TRY AGAIN? CAN THEY EVER LIVE AND FEEL SAFE? HOW DID THEY GET OUT OF THE REMOTE DESERT AND BACK TO NEW YORK??
I LOVE JOHN COREY'S SENSE OF HUMOR. I LIKED THE HISTORY OF YEMEN AND SOMEWHAT GETTING THE IDEA OF WHAT THE REGULAR PEOPLE IN THAT COUNTRY ARE LIKE. I WILL NEVER TRAVEL TO THAT AREA, BUT I HAVE A BETTER IDEA OF WHAT IT IS LIKE.
YES AND AS USUAL HE MAKES THE STORY VERY INTERESTING.
IT MADE ME LAUGH A LOT. ALL OF DEMILLE'S BOOKS WITH JOHN COREY DO THAT.
