I had listened to Nelson DeMille's other books and finally decided to listen to The Gold Coast. I have listened to over 500 books in the past few years and read many more before that. I have to say that this was my most favorite book ever. It is such an interesting story and DeMille's humor just cannot be matched. Also the narration was superb. I enjoyed The Gate House as well. My sister also listened to them and immediately listened to both of them again. She said they were even better when heard the second time. I cannot recommend them enough.
This book is all about medieval war and all the horrors that go along with it (beheadings, dismemberment, rape and murder) and many of the victims are children. I have listened to over 100 hours in the hopes that something good might happen but it never does - just more of the same. The writer and narrator are good but the story is just too violent and depressing for my taste.
One thinks one is getting a book about Jamie, Claire and the characters that we know. However it is as much about John & William Grey as anyone else. The book is very much like the others, a bit long and detailed. But just as it gets interesting, it ends. I have enjoyed the books and love Davina Porter but I have to say I felt a little tricked. If you want to find out the ending of this book you have to buy the next.
