Speed up the reading pace
All the ones where "I took out the cellphone battery and threw it out the window"
Like all 20 of them. That was the most ridiculous part (of many ridiculous parts) of the novel.
Fairly interesting yarn, however borders on the ridiculous and unbelievable. The narrator bored me to tears with his slow reading pace.
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.
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.
The Ghostman. He's the perfect anti-hero.
The story and the narration are exceptional. This is what a crime novel/mystery is supposed to be like.I can't wait for Roger Hobbs next one!
