it was all I could to to keep plugging away at this one. I was WELL into the 2nd of 3 parts before the story really started to get my interest. The reading was okay, but the accent was kind of annoying. Regardless, I stuck it out and the book was pretty satisfying overall. I will say though, I've been a member for many years and this was one of the most books that most challenged my attention. It's not an easy listen -- you have to want it! Good luck!
Extremely predictable story, slow and repetitive, and very predictable "formula" story. Just take A&D or DaVinci Code and put it in DC ... oh, and make it a lot longer. I really wasn't impressed with this one at all. Points for narration though...
In the words of Randy Jackson, "this one just didn't do it for me." It was a good story and was fairly engaging throughout ... decent ending ... but the production was terrible. There were "patches" throughout the audio -- up to 5 or so second long -- where there was a different person inserting words or sentences. VERY obvious and VERY annoying. If this were a movie, I'd say wait for the video ... but that said, I think with some revision this would make a pretty decent movie!
