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.
Talking about the USS Cole
Yes. The John Corey character, while entertaining, spent way too much time wise-cracking. It seemed that he has something snarky to say every paragraph. While some of this is fine, and in character, this time it was in my opinion over the line. It seriously detracted from my enjoyment of the book.
Predictable but enjoyable.
The narration by Scott Brick is excellent, as usual, and the relevance to our current conflicts makes it an intriguing read.
The plot seems a little slow at times but others may enjoy the historical details and background information more than those who have read all the previous DeMille novels.
Scott Brick is the best narrator, hands down, and this job here is on par with the rest of his excellent work.
I was particularly disgusted by the truthful revelation that policy makers in the White House continue to put our country and service personnel at risk with inane rules and regulations. What happened to the USS Pueblo and the USS Cole happened again recently in Libya.
