I already have recommended it to several.
The Piano Tuner - of course!
I found it to be a "I can't wait to listen to what happens next" sort of book. The imagery and story are superb.
The pronunciation of Burmese is worth the listen.
Yes. The audio version is easier on the ears than the eyes. I think I suffer from a new addiction called Audible Dot Com and may need counseling. Echo burning has you going from the very beginning. Dick Hill does a great job.
This story is impossible to figure out. Every time I thought I knew something, I didn't. Reacher is the only fictional character who rides off into the sunset by hitchhiking! This story has some nasty characters who get their just desserts in the deserts or is it deserts in the desserts...who knows? The grit was palpable.
This is a tough one. When I read the book I don't hear Dick Hill in my head? Hill plays the role.
Tag line? Hmmm.... The sound of bones crunching....?
I will wait a month or two and listen to this again.
This book has some good technical information in it about guns, being a sniper, and thinking through the details of a crime. It also speaks to the way in which some things can be used for good (defending your country) or for evil (as in the case of this story). While in China I listened to this book at night because there was no television or radio -given where I was working. I would get lost in it.
Reacher, of course. But the scary Russian/Ukrainian guy was good too...or bad as the case may be. There never seem to be any good Russians or Ukrainians.
Dick Hill is very good. Yes, I have heard him before.
The puppet master could make you wet your pants!
I'll wait a few months and listen to this one again. Because...with Audible.com.... they are always on your Kindle Fire shelf.
I am selective in my choices of stories so this is a hard to answer. Dick Hill is a superb story reader. Match him with a great story and you get great listening.
Jack Reacher - honorable and not given to Miranda rights!
No. It was a book I wanted to listen to and savor.
Certainly, one of the best.
You always ended up surprised.
All of them...but probably Stalin.
The rank is top 5%.
I am on my second run through of this story. Kitchen does a superb job of reading this story and the character voices are fantastic. This is a very enjoyable story that holds your attention at every turn. The story has numerous subplots as well so at times you gain these interesting insights into Dibdin's view of Italian life. This is a Five Star book and I highly recommend it.
Yes, I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good story told by a great voice artist like Michael Kitchen.
The plot is down right fun.
Mr Kitchen is as good as ever. Besides I love his Folye's War series. He is certainly a great actor. Forget someone like Tom Cruse reading this. Kitchen is the consummate leading character actor at the top of his game. He appears to be having great fun with the various voices. I envy such talent.
One can really appreciate this story when you find a quiet place, a cup of hot chocolate, and no interruptions. It is not hard to "get into" this story. I will wait a month or two and hear it again.
