I found the New York wit to be extremely funny in places. So much so, that twice I had laughed out loud. The story has one or 2 slow spots, but overall is fast paced. I highly recommend this.
I found myself wandering off while trying to follow the story. The ending was really disappointing.. somewhat like a stereo typical foreign film that does not know how to end.
I am a huge Scott Brick fan, but this is one book where I found his narration to be annoying and at times hard to follow. Scott Brick has never been great in voice differentiation, and this book is definitely no exception. I forced myself to get all the way to the end and was relieved when it was over. This is one to stay away from.
Although some reviewers found the first 6 hours to be slow, I enjoyed this portion as I was totally enamored with the main characters after having read "Girl with the Dragon tattoo". This story is absolutely riveting. I am totally into the heroine and could easily picture her in a movie for any of the books in this series.
I found myself very much immersed in the story line which was fast paced with breadth. However, I found the Narrator to sound robot like and came close to quitting early. However, I soon became use to his annoying staccato like narration and continued to finish the story.
I actually would recommend the book... but with some hesitancy because of the narration.
Having read several of the books in this series, I was not disappointed. However, I still feel the author spends a little too much time on her romantic happenings with her hubby. Otherwise, a fun read.
I am a big fan of Shatner. But even I could not get through this book. Shatner mumbles so much, I found myself continually turning up the volume. At first I laughed at his story telling. However, after a while his large ego made him sound boring. This is one to skip.
I am a big Vince Flynn fan. However, the narrator's voice made me feel as though I was listening to a 'lifeless' story with my hero and all around him sounding as tired old men. Bummer!
I almost put this down several times in the first half of the story. Partly, as having difficulty understanding the thick English accents. The second half of the story was much more riveting and I found myself thinking about reading on to the next in this trilogy.
The story starts off promising, but soon you realize this is no more than the equivalent of an action movie that has lots of action and not much depth as a story. Very disappointed.
