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!
fantastic spellbinding;great narrators; he story kept me wanting to continue to listen! i tremendously enjoyed the book. overall a 10.
Would not recommend.
Story line was good, but the tie in to Private was weak, could stand on its own.
It was fine, the suspect narration was creepy, but suppose that was the point.
Not going to order anymore Private out of the original series.
Patterson? Yes. Sullivan? No.
If you took a drink every time the term "High Commisar" or any location ending in "Strasser" was used, you'd be on the floor by the end of the third chapter. Pretty much the worst audio book ever, and it looks Like Patterson has so much money from the really good stuff he used to write, that now he just mails it in and it gets published. Since there are 2 authors listed, how much of this did Patterson actually write?
I have only listened the audio book, not able to compare. Probably should read so as to make the comparison.
Many memorable moments, Cris' death in the slaughter house, spooky. The car chase scene was easy to visualize brought about by the many twists and turns in the story line. The Private Berlin office was graced with only a few moments of Jack Morgan expertise.
I can't say I'm crazy about the readers when comparing to other audio book readers. Maybe better choices available. Ms. LaVoy was not believable in the characters changes. Mr. Fliakos character was annoying, However, overall, did enjoy the audio book,
I would find any audio book difficult to listen to in one sitting, but did listen to often as I performed my exercise program.
