Wordy, confusing sub plots that go back and forth! Scott brick save the audiobook. Not sure why I bought this book! Another disappointment!
I loved the plot and story line overall. The characters were engaging. There was great build up to the end and ultimate delivery of a dramatic ending. The story was complex and keeps you guessing. I loved it! The narration is very stylized in what reminds me of an old detective novel.
Although I didn't find the story really believable, it was a good listen. But I guess it is fiction! Scott Brick, as is usually the case, did a great job narrating. I thought this book was more entertaining than the first one, If you like Brad Meltzer and Scott Brick, then I think it was worth the listen
It really needed a more compelling, interesting and believable plot. It needed a real protagonist. There was not a single likeable character in the entire book.
Not from the genre, but certainly from the author and narrator.
The narrator's monotonous, singsong voice was extremely irritating. I am not sure what would help.
I did learn something about the assassins of former US Presidents.
I read about one book every two weeks, and have done so for about 40 years. I can not recall a more worthless book.
Better than nothing if you're stuck in the cabin with old paperbacks. I still have trouble not picturing Seinfeld as Brick reads.
I have listened to and read many of these kind of stories and this story was really poor. I could no relate to any of the characters, especially Beecher who was smart but angry all the time and did not seem to have a clue about what was going on. Scott Brick also did a poor job of reading. It was sad because I have heard him read many times. Perhaps it was the poor material.
I am normally a big Brad Meltzer fan, but this book was horrible. Tried twice to get through it, even went back and read the first book in the story, but no help. The story was just horrible.
I have always enjoyed Meltzer, but this one was really hard to follow in audio. I almost gave up four or five times. I had to force myself to finish it.
I can't put my finger on what was wrong with it, but I know I can't recommend it.
It was fine.
