The plot lacked any drama or suspense.
No, DeMille has written some great books and I would recommend most of his other books.
If you listen to the John Corey character by Scott Brick in earlier books, the character spoke more quickly. The slow delivery and slow plot made a bad combination for the listener.
I learned a lot about Yemen just like I learned a lot about VietNam in "Up Country." DeMille can be very descriptive and I think he spends time researching topics and locations. I think I have learned something from every book he's written.
Start with any other John Corey book if you haven't read Nelson DeMille. I would recommend almost all of his books. This just isn't his most interesting.
Yes, It's a good story and I would like to listen starting with the first book through to the last.
Corey's sarcastic wit is always good just bordering on the too much. Corey and Kate carry out their mission together, they are separate personalities but come through for each other and the best part there was no obligatory kidnapping of the good guys.
Scortt Brick always does a great job. I can never listen to him without thinking of the first book I heard him read.
love scott brick's narrative - he's been the narrator on many of my favorites. he captured the characters well. this is my first nelson demille and probably my last.
clive cussler's new book
brick is just right
history and political geography, but way too much of that!
only made it through about 6 hours of this and nothing happened. if i wanted history, geography, commentary on dysfunctional government agencies (all true) and sarcasm (of which i have plenty of my own) i would not have chosen this method of delivery.
Someone who doesn't mind boring dialog, undeveloped female characters, and no action until the middle of the book. But seriously, if you like smart ass comments ad nauseum, this might be amusing.
Non-fiction by Michael Lewis
He captured the main character; sadly I didn't like the main character.
I learned a lot about Yemen.
Great combination of a good action story with wonderful humor. The best fiction book I have listened to this year.
One of the best
Non stop entertainment with either John Corey in action or cracking wise. No better character.
Scott Brick could read the phone book and it would be entertaining
Yes ! Scott Brick does such a great performance that it draws you right into the story and drama. Always looking forward to.continue listening when I turn player off!
DeMille always entertains, his characters are what this country needs today.
Even though it is fiction there is a lot of truth as to what happens in the middle east and why the USA is such a great country
All of them
Because of the Eastern names used. The listen was very easy to follow.
Someone of the genre of Scott Horvath Dirk Pitt. Both are strong males and use humor in the face of adversity
I enjoyed all of the characters.
