This title seemed to be well recommended, but in the end, it was a big disapointment. The characters had little depth. Initially, it seemed promising, but it felt like you were listening to a reading of a Columbo episode that was 11 1/2 hours too long. The story really had no hook for the listener, and the reader didn't help anything either.
I usually don't write reviews, but I was completely gripped by the narrative of this audiobook. It was extremely well done, in my opinion. Not only was the story ahead of its time (1954), but the story also foreshadows an "epidemic", which seems increasingly likely in our lifetime. There were times that the narrator's voice made the hair stand up on the back of my neck. Well done.
The narrator's vocalizations were very interesting. Story was very good. I don't know if it would make a good movie, but it was a very good audio book.
Interesting story. The ending is kind of a letdown, but all in all, it was worth my time.
Nelson Demille hit a homerun with this title. Not only was the main character, John Correy, interesting but he was extremely likeable. I hated coming to the end of this book. You may want to read "Plum Island" first, because there are references made to it in regards to understanding interactions between some of the characters. Well worth your time. I can't wait for the next installment!
I was interested with the story because of all the hype. Characters are introduced with great promise, only to be forgotten or poorly written in the rest of the book. Don't waste your time.
A very interesting book. Ludlum crafted an intricate story, with several twists and turns along the way. Definately worth the time.
