I NEED audible in order to escape into other peoples much more interesting minds
The story was good don't get me wrong. It was very interesting, kept me guessing and wanting more. But the narration was awesome.
The guy who was looking for ghost man. Weber's narration for this guy was excellent, one of the best I've heard.
Good first book and it has garnered a lot of attention. I just don't what I think about it. The hero is no hero at all. He makes some moves that would be considered heroic and then he goes and does something purely for his own self interest. Just not sure how I feel about it.
Addicted Audible listener.what could be better than listening to a terrific narrator bring a book to life.
I spend hours researching books: checking number of readers, readers reviews, listening to narrators, ratio of stars to numbers of readers ete.,etc. Sometime I don't find anything that appeals to me so I go to bed. However, Ghostman caught my attention. I've been looking for a modern mystery and it seemed to meet my criteria
I have been reading Alan Furst, Philip Kerr, John La Carre, Eric Ambler up through Brad Thor,
Vince Flynn, all the spy,espionage genera and I wanted something current. That's when I found "Ghost Man". and took a shot. Wow. What a surprise. A story and plot just what I was hungry for.
This is one terrific novel. performance, plot. originality. I really got lucky. Looking for more from this talented writer, Roger Hobbs , together with narrator Jake Weber. Check it out! It's the beginning of a brilliant career, and it's nice to get in on the first novel.
An interesting concept, but only to answer the question, "who is the least evil?" Keeps your attention, but only if you are incessantly bored. The switch between what was and what is can only be described as "meh." If you are considering listening, save your credit.
Retired from a sales and marketing career. I take a lot of long walks while listening to audible books, mainly mysteries and thrillers.
Top 10 great narration and the story was close to perfection
Some of Adrian McKinty's books
I think he got into the character very well and his variation of different accents was excellent.
One of the best audio stories I have listen to in a couple of years.
Hobbs and Weber make a goo team. As a frequent reader of mystery fiction, I enjoyed listening to Ghostman.
RETIRED & LOVING IT.
SAVE YOUR CREDITS, THIS BOOK IS BARELY THERE AS A STORY. I HAVE TRIED TO LISTEN TO IT THREE TIMES, THAT IS ENOUGH.
If the writer had a better knowledge of firearms, I would have thought more of the story was believable. If you are anything of a "gun person," please skip it. It's been said that the devil is in the details, and the devil certainly got all of these...wrong.
To get a better idea of my background. I am a working class white male in my forties. I love good fiction, and I love smart books. I have drifted towards a lot of European writers like Reginald Hill, Val McDermid.,Etc....
Jake webber has a good voice overall - When he's speaking normal. The character's he portayed in the story seemed dramatic; with voice's I couldn't relate to, or get in to. I thought the story had a good shot in the beginning - But I was quickly losing interest as it progressed. I was hoping for some revalation at the end that made it worth the time invested in it - Like the "Inside man" movie with Clive Owen... If I used that as my guage - You'd have to dig a hole to find the minus star rating. If you like plain action, with no substance - Then this might be for you.
