Favorite books are Mystery & Thrillers followed close by SciFi & Fantasy.
Too much dialogue and not enough action. If it wasn't for Scott Brick, I wouldn't have finished this book. Very disappointing.
Great plot potential but gave up 80% through and wished I had followed my instincts after 15%. Reads like the editor sent DeMille back to double the page count with no change in the storyline. The ponderous pace was exacerbated by the relentless and ultimately tiresome sarcasm of the main character.
This might have been more tolerable in text form where it would be easy to skip ten pages at a time.
Too bad because the plot had promise and I liked most of DeMille's books including the recent "Lion".
the beginning and end were fine but this book was too long. nothing hapened from middle of first tape until middle of third tape.
I can only assume it did
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.
