Pointless and repetitive. Storyline was convoluted. Don't know anyone.
Repetitive and dark. Pointless sub plots.
The accents are difficult.
The child issue.
Could not finish, gave up.
I really enjoyed this book. I was not as happy with the voices used in this book, but a lot better than the last in the series. This book has a great storyline and does not need much the character building for you to tie in every person mentioned in the book. Jack Morgan took another backseat in the plot, but added just enough content for you to know Private International was still his own.
It had interesting information about the ramifications of the Berlin Wall coming down
Discovering about the orphanage and it's significants to the story
Both good performers. I am very familiar with January
Loved storyline - reader kept speed reading which lost feeling and emotions necessary for a tragic well written story
I teach middle level reading, consequently, I find myself reading Young Adult selections. Audible is my guilty pleasure!
James Patterson is one of my all time favorite writers. I'm a fan of his series works, including his work written for a teen audience. Patterson is my go to author because he writes a cohesive story whose plot is complex without being convoluted or confusing. Typically, characters are rich and well developed and in the end, which is usually a delightful surprise, conflicts make sense,but the opposite is true with this book and others in the series. The characters were boring, conflicts were expected and the end predictable. I should add, annoying pitch to narrators voice. It's as if Patterson gave his idea to a few students, who in turn wrote Private Berlin, which is fine as long as Patterson's name isn't listed as author. In fact, Each Private book, after Private London, could be a series and should be. The characters, apart from Jack Morgan, founder of Private, are flat and Morgan is background noise.
Overall, frustrating experience.
Borrow a copy from your library.
This is a great book! It is well read and a true joy to listen to. Love this whole series!
