    The characters introduced in the best-selling Honor Bound - Marine aviator Cletus Frade, Army demolitions expert Anthony Pelosi, and communications genius David Ettinger - encounter intrigue in Buenos Aires in April 1943.

    "Slow Reader"
    Overall

    This is the worst book that I have tried to listen to. Michael Russotto needs to work on his reading skills, he spoke so slow I was too bored to continue listening. I have 127 audiobooks and this is the worst book that I have listened to. I have a hard time believing that I spent what I did on this book.

    Where does The Hades Factor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a good book but one of the few books that had very poor editorial work. I counted seven areas where the sentences were repeated. I did not like the initial part of the book narration, like the narrator was trying to get me to understand what he was saying instead of letting me listen.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes, initial narration was slow and seven areas were repeated.

    It is summer 1943. Two of the Allies’ most important plans are at grave risk: Operation Overlord’s invasion of France and the Manhattan Project’s race to build the atomic bomb. A furious President Roosevelt turns to OSS spy chief Wild Bill Donovan — and Donovan turns to Dick Canidy and his teams behind enemy lines. They’ve certainly got their work cut out for them....

    Pretty Good


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Kept me interested, not on the edge of my seat though


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Lane – was your favorite?

    I have always liked Dick Canady


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Not really, there was some humor, but not real heavy laughable humor, it is not that type of book

    From Shanghai to Wake Island, the Corps was America’s first line of defense as the winds of war exploded into the devastating surprise attack on Pearl Harbor. This is the story of the men of the Marine Corps, their loves and loyalties, an elite fraternity united by courage and honor, as they steel themselves for battle, prepared to make the ultimate sacrifice....

    What did you love best about Semper Fi?

    I really subject matter of the Corps series, I Have folloewd Ken McCoy's career in the Corps and all of the other characters. I enjoy the closeness of the historical facts tha are incorporated in WEB Griffin's books. along with the stories.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot kept me interested. I have read the books numerous times and have them on DVD. I have been waiting to get them on my iPod for a long time. I am glad that they are finally available. These books are like good friends coming to visit and spening a couple of days with me.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Out of other Narrators I have listened to including W. E. B Griffin and other authors, I really appreciate listinging to Dick Hill. I have read all the series of Griffin many times and have them memorized more or less. Dick Hill makes them really enjoyable, the only eay they would be better if there was a woman doing the woman parts.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    If I had the available time. I can not listen while I m at work, but I am an avid listener when I am driving or working out.

    Charlie Castillo's secret unit has been disbanded - but that doesn't mean he's out of business. As experience has painfully shown him, there are many things the intelligence community can't do, won't do, or doesn't do well, and he has the men and assets to help set things straight.

    Mondobelly says: "Disappointing re-write of character history"
    "Mixed Thoughts"
    Overall

    I love W. E. B. Griffin, this series has been written with Butterworth, and it does not have the same feel as the others. THe book had some interesting aspects, but I was not happy with the narrator. It was a fair book to listen to.
