Probably not, but that is only because the characters and story are indelibly etched into my memory thanks to a well written book. What a great story!
Having worked with Police Dogs - both Belgian Malinois and German Shepherds, for nearly fifteen years and having handled four of them myself, it was truly refreshing to read a story about a service dog that actually captured the spirit of how these animals work and think. "Alpha safe, pack safe, pack happy!" Indeed, it's all about The Pack!More often than not working with these dogs is like dealing with a 2 year old child.However, there are those rare moments that come along from time to time where they emerge from their per-adolescent tendencies to become bigger than life and are so incredibly courageous. Likewise, the cop side of the story was well written too. Perhaps a little over the top, but it made for a great fictional story filled with passion and intrigue. I was listening to this book about the same time that rogue Ex-LAPD cop Chris Dorner went on his killing spree which made this story even more timely and effectual for me.I highly recommend this book for Police drama junkies, especially anyone that has worked with Police or Military K9's.
No, this was my first with MacLeod, and I found him enjoyable and wouldn't hesitate listening to him again. Bravo!
This is an easy one..."Pack"
The tireless conquest of Colonel Riggs and the Starforce Marines was phenomenal. As they relentlessly pursue the Macros across the universe I was left feeling almost sorry for them as it seemed they never got much R&R. While all of Earth hung in the balance, and their mission was crucial to survival, I couldn't help but think how heroic the characters were. I wondered, would I have that stamina, that resolve to keep on going?
Seeing Marvin return from his little adventures of hunting and gathering was a wonderful surprise toward the end. I can see where that character might be going and I am anxious to find out if I'm right.
Hands down,Marvin. Boyett did a superb job of personalizing each character and I will be watching for more Boyett narrations.
My work productivity slowed due to this great performances of Boyett and the excellent writing of B.V. Larson...couldn't put it down. Also discovered that I need to turn down the volume of my headset so the wife can sleep better. She didn't appreciate the battle for Andros Island at 3 in the morning like I did.
Conquest left me anxious for whatever is coming next.
