I am a Stephen Hunter fan, but this one really taxed my patience. Way too long and over worded.. But there is a good story in there if you can get pass over embelishment
Good story based on facts, but it doesn't get too extreme. All of hunters books that has more information on guns and ballistics than some of the others.
I rated the overall down because of the reader. I had a very hard time keeping up with who and where he was. The story was way to long for my liking. Yes I would because I am a fan of Bob Swagger. Get help with an extra reader would help.
I liked the content of this story because I heard one from another person who told one just about the same. Only not to put it together as well as it was. Yep get me another but get help for Schirner when you jump around with so many others. (:
Of course, I liked his performance on all the others. I believe if another person would of done some of the reading when a person was telling his memories help differentiate the change on what they were telling.
The story its self was great.
I made plenty.
Comic Book Fan
I have read and listened to many Stephen Hunter novels and have never been let down. I highly recommend " The Third Bullet" to Hunter fans and JFK conspiracy folks. Buck Shirmer is an awesome narrator and now Bob Lee Swagger has a voice and it's not Mark Wahlberg, no offense Mark. Highly enjoyable listen.
The narrator did a great job covering all the different voices of the characters in this book that are from all different parts of the world. A must-read for those interested in the JFK assassination and conspiracy. Story kept my interest nicely from start to finish.
In this book I swear half of it was a guy reading his memoirs. Seemed to be a lot less characters and definitely less action. It didn't grip to me like the others have.
Great storyline. Several creative twists.
I recommend to anyone who is into a historical fiction with creative and plausible answer to more than one shooter on November 22, 1963.
I gave this rating as I believe it to be the best in an awesome series!
