I haven't followed this character set...and it was easy to pick up the thread. But, the story line was all over the place and there was really no "thriller" attachment to who did what, or why. It was interesting listening, but I wouldn't walk far to get another book in this series.
First, listening to this is like having a voice mail machine or Kindle voice read it to you....flat, dull and boring.
Then, the book is so absurd, and boring that I have given up and gone to something else for fear I'll have road rage listening and driving at the same time.
Fortunately this is a "cyber" book or I'd throw it out the car window...but then my iPod would be gone. It really doesn't rate one star but there are no half stars
My favorite listen of the summer. It makes you start to understand why Haiti is the doormat of the world and hard to embrace...why they are what they are now in total impoverishment.
I love historical novels as it is a great way to get the history down. And this book does not disappoint.
Since Rusty and I are the same age, I feel like I checked in with my acquaintance from 20 or so years ago and got an update on his life. It was a great read and I enjoyed it all the way to Oregon. Then we parted company yet again.
I loved the Ludlum books and the Jason Bourne character. But it's gone too far. Locked in a car with this and my iPod, craving the sound of the reader's voice, I switched to music to put this to an end. I came back, tried again. The characters are muddled, Jason can't think straight...I'm sick of thinking "duh, dude, don't you remember?" yet again. Then miracle of miracles he manages to somehow remember what he needs to know. Let Jason go home; the first book ended the way it should have frankly.
This book is awful. Maybe Coleen Marlo is a good narrator and she got an awful product to narrate, but her southern drawl of men and the women, is grating...but then so is the dialogue. Unless you want a predictable droning story of Texas cotton and rich folk, avoid this book. This is one I'll delete from my iPod without finishing.
I can't believe I actually listened to this entire book. Shallow, vapid, and predictable. But, when driving for hours it was better than nothing.
At times the story telling line was blurred...but the main character's narcissistic view of himself and the world's perception of him was great. Good story, that I enjoyed listening to very much
This is an okay book, nothing to write home about or even spend much time doing this review....it kills time to listen to.
This has to be the MOST boring book I have ever been exposed to. I am a real fan/historian of WWII... I know men, I respect from being in the Battle of The Bulge; I've been there in a driving, January snow storm...But this is like listening to someone say that Private Smith was standing on the corner of 5th and WhoCares Blvd and the 517th failed to show up to pick him up or something and why didnt Ike and Patton make it right and why didn't FDR step in, etc.... It is awful.
This was like listening to paint drying.
Save your credits, money and your precious time, don't try to listen to this unless you enjoy listening to paint drying.
