I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.
Yes, If you like the previous John books this is another great one.
John is always my favorite character.
Scott is one of the best readers int the business. I even do searches just for him to find new books to listen too.
When they were set up for death once again by the CIA and getting through it as a group.
The only problem I have with this book is how it was ended. I think Nelson could of spent another 2 or 3 chapters to close out the business with Tom and the CIA. I also would of liked to seen Buck getting punched in the face.
I love John Corey the hero, and Scott Brick the narrator is the best. I sincerely hope DeMille continues writing for the series, keep John alive!
Sure. Both are talented.
Sure. I have a couple in the ipod waiting.
Scott is always at the top of his game. My favorite narrator.
NO. Slow moving. Excessive wisecracks. Waaaaaaaay to many "Right!" responses from Cory.
Please make Cory a more likable character. His number one response to every statement/thought/situation is "Right!". So sick of hearing that. Such a smart-a$$ he is intolerable.
Yes, I normally love all of his books.
I thought the book was very boring and drawn out.
I have read all of his books and looked forward to this one coming out. I was very disappointed in the story with very little action and not much to the story.
I usually love Nelson DeMille Books and I especially like John Corey. This book was not quite up to his best. The Panther was a very weak villain and like James Bond movies, a book is only as good as the villain. The Panther seems to have been left out of the middle half of the book. He opens it up and then disappears until the last few pages. I thought it was a feeble attempt to vilify him by making him a turncoat American. What made the Lion so good was the believable history for his actions and his continual presence and evil behavior during the entire book. In the Panther, Corey was at his quippiest but they seemed a little strained. And where was Kate Mayfield? She's disappeared as an active character. And what was the intimations that Corey was attracted, very attracted, to another sexy military woman about? "Kate Mayfield is the love of my life but boy do I wish i could be in the same vehicle alone with the young lady doctor and who's maybe wearing a wet T-shirt." I don't know, maybe I'm getting a little soft but this attitude seems not very John Coryish. The real enemy seemed to be the CIA and the book seemed to be a set up for a sequel to seek revenge against them. DeMille seemed to be struggling to find one consistent enemy. He waffled between Al-qaida, the Yemeni chieftans, the Yemen secret service and the CIA. I guess this was his attempt to keep us guessing but his effort was too muddled and became boring. Usually, DeMille's books have a good mystery raveled up in the story but in this book there was no mystery. Corey was bait and he had to find the Panther before he found him. Usually, I'm sad when one of his books is over. When I finished this one, I longed for "The General's Daughter".
Creative and funny
Word of Honor
There were many
I found myself laughing out loud in public
I really enjoyed this book. I think it is the best 'John Corey' book so far. I would listen to it again definately.
I love the suspense of the story and or course John's wit.
I love to listen to Scott Brick's reading because it's like having a friend telling you a story. He's got John Corey down.
That's a tricky question. Perhaps something like 'Straight from the headlines we don't get to read."
Yes-sometime down the road as part of re-listening to the whole series.
I already have and have enjoyed most of what I've read. I've heard about a book or two of his I may read in the future, but I've already read most of his books that interest me (but then I don't normally read this type of book to start with.)
Scott Brick _is_ John Corey to me. The Book Case is the only book in the series I didn't listen to and when I read it I had Scott's voice in my head. I feel he gives John a fair amount of his character.
This book can stand on its own, but it wouldn't hurt to read Wild Fire before this or even the entire series. I see others complaining about how nothing happens for most of this book, but I like that for the variety in the series-it works for this story and it throws you off a bit. This was not my favorite John Corey book, but I still found it enjoyable. I didn't always see where Nelson DeMille was going with this book, but that might be partially due to Wild Fire being my least favorite book in the series.
This book is hours and hours of background information with hardly any action until the very end.
Grisham's new book.
The last 90 minutes of the book was great. The first 18 hours was often boring.
Disappointment because I have enjoyed the author's previous books.
If you must listen to this, buy the abridged version. You won't miss anything important.
Yes I would recommend this book because I love the character of John Corey-he is so funny and a smartalec and Scott Brick makes him seem so real-I have read all the books in the series and hope Nelson Demille writes more of them!
When John realizes that the CIA plan to kill him and Kate
There are so many I couldn't really say
John Corey books always make me laugh because of his sardonic sense of humor
Read all the books in the series-they are GREAT! Nelson Demille and Scott Brick are wonderful!
