It was downloaded to my MP3 (which I don't have) and I couldn't rectify this problem so I didn't listen to the story
No - not at all
I don't know for the above reason
No idea - I wasn't able to listen to it
Extremely difficult to get advice on how to rectify a problem, although it was probably my fault. Other than this experience I am very pleased with the website.
Well it filled some otherwise dead time driving. Wasn't totally unlistenable but not outstanding in any way
There was a lot of what I considered bizarre rationalization going on with some religious references that just seemed odd. Nathan's condition of attacking people randomly when he wakes and having nightmares seems to me to be a really bad combination for someone supposedly in the professional security business. He needs to be getting help and not being allowed to ramp about all over creation administering his own brand of justice.
Other adventure hero types can be coldly rational and predictable in their behavior. After 3 Nathan McBride books I can't warm to him as the heroic type at all
I am a small business owner, writer and frequent traveler. Audio books are my constant companions
The story is laughable as it seems the Mr Peterson ran out of ideas following book 2. The character has potential but it is wasted entirely here. The author continues to miss some basic Marine Corps knowledge as demonstrated by his use or misuse of military and uniquely Marine Corps language. The narrator may exacerbate the problem in reading the letter o for the number 0 and the like. If we ignore all that, which is asking a lot, we have to deal with the authors fear of a strong male character that can take care of himself without the aid of 12 year old girls and 120 lb female FBI agents. Then there is the reckless random violence on the streets where our hero thigh shoots kidnappers and assassins. Tom Clancy and the late Vince Flynn (in the final Mitch Rapp book) are good examples of how to write male leads in this savage world of espionage. Mr Peterson should read a few of these. Or maybe a little more Jack Reacher and a little less Jack and Jill.
It is more of a mans book. . did not finish it. did not enjoy.
It just was not for me.
?? did not lie
I don't believe i am interested in any more Nathan McBride books.
I found this book to be somewhat silly. The first two were much more serious and easier to believe.
Normally I enjoy Dick Hill but this time I could hear all types of background noises that were distracting; swallowing, breathing, moistening his mouth.
Option To Kill has a great story line and concept. It is destroyed as Nathan McBride spends 90% of the books as an unbelievable character. In one scene the a group of bad guys is shooting at him with automatic machine guns and we get to hear him do some of his always present introspection as he decides"I can't shoot (into this warehouse parking lot) for fear of a possible stray bullet hit an innocent person. Now remember he is getting hosed by several machine guns.This book was like Andrew Peterson was conflicted with writing a good story or a Dr Phil Self-Help book. He ruined the story line.
The story line involves much dialogue by a 1`2 year girl. Do you really think a 40 something old man can credibly play a 12 year old girl. I will give you the answer - no.
They could have spent a little money to hire a female voice to do the little girl and the several female roles in the book
It inspired me to not buy any more Nathan McBride books. His character is not realistic.
Hire females to read female charcters.
The narrator, the story was so-so
Another book with Dick Hill in it.
In command and ready
No, the story is shallow and missing Harvey Fontana
The first 2 books were more detailed and exciting
I love audio and ebooks but only give them a 5 if they hold my attention. An avereage story gets a 3 . Thrillers & Crime are my favorites.
I really enjoyed the prior Nathan McBride books but this one was really tedious. I think it was more the performance than the storyline. The story features a 12 year old girl who is kidnapped in the beginning and McBride rescues her. She is with him the rest of the story and, while she is supposed to be 12 she comes across more like she is 6 or 7 most of the time. Dick Hill does a terrible job with the female character's voices, , but his little girl voice is the worst. I cringed whenever the character was speaking.
The plot is complex and has some interesting parts; however, I think saddling McBride with a very whinny child really slows down the action. I will listen to the next installment in the series but I sure hope its better than this one.
I've enjoyed both the story and previous narration of this series, but the narrator's interpretation and performance of the young girl's voice in this book became unbearable. I usually listen to a good book straight through, but this time I had to take frequent days-long breaks because I simply couldn't listen to it anymore. Dick Hill has a great voice for strong male characters, but a two-narrator approach would have made this book a much better listen.
Depends on the characters and narration.
Sorry. I just can't deal with male narrators doing little girl voices.
