Well done story, it was better than the first and for the lovers of zombie sci fi, it holds up will for zombie genre. It has good action, and follows smoothly.
I get the feeling that it was Jay that wrote this book with Kirkman's assistance.. it follows the walking dead storyline, but was missing something, a little drawn out to make the book longer. Maybe I am too much a fan, but R Kirkman refers to the undead as walkers and biters, while Bonansinga uses the term zombies, and too often uses the word,"supine".
Probably where Lily starts to put together things aren't safe in Woodbury, and she is realizing that her friends are disapearing. All I am going to say. read the book.
Yes. It shows a parallel storyline to Rick and the others at the Prison who are surviving following to the zombie virus. The characters are rich in thier developement, only disapointed to see many die off by end.
By about the third time they are caught unaware of walkers, and taken by surprise, I am wondering , if these are survivors, then how did they manage to outwit, and survive? I mean, how many were first taken, bitten, and caught in the armagedon, these survivors would definately be sharper, keener and skills honed to pre-awareness of walkers movement towards them.. noise, smell, etc.
I was pleasantly surprised with the first book, enjoyed listening to it, and the characters. I hoped it continues thru D. Baldacci's writing. Jessica is a good add in to the franchise.. and look forward to reading or listening to the third.
It was good, although I was disappointed that there wasn't enough of Julie (his teenage friend) nor SuperAgent Nikki Vance written into the book. They were introduced in the first book, but sadly, there wasn't enough mention of them or details given to them.. I would have like to read more help from Vance, as well, as input from Julie. The authors direction of Will Robie is he is conflicted to not become emotionally intertwined or care for people, yet he clearly is with Vance, and Julie.
I became familiar to the characters from the first, and they become them. They add some depth to the chapters, and keep me wanting to find out what happens next.
All the bad-ass of a squad, in one man and one woman!
Good narration, fast paced.. good listening book.
It kept you wanting to continue to find out how he solves the case. Least interesting is the comparison to Lee Child's "Jack Reacher". Having read Reacher, this feels like a rip off.
*Spoiler* Sad that Sam died. Some parts are really implausible.. like his backpack with all the stuff you need to defuse a nuke,, and surviving a nuclear blast, hurled 100 feet in the air.. really? Try doing that.. no shattered bones, or crushed skull? really..
I wish the other books go on sale. Then I will buy them, or recommend them.
The story line was fast paced, as you ventured on, you were like peeling away layers and learning more and more.. the deeper in trouble that was unfolding for Robie and his young friend, Julie.
Will was a serious, tactile, precise man. I loved the banter between the mouthy teenager, Julie, whom he befriends and protects when her parents are murdered, and she's on the run. I also enjoyed the connection he had with Agent Vance of the FBI. I wish he and she could have continued somehow in a partnership in future books.
I disliked some of the music or sound effects added at the end of chapters. It made it cheap, or cheesy... it was unnecessary for my listening pleasure.
I found this an intense thriller that made me enjoy playing it. I wanted to find out more and more.. which is what makes a good thriller/action story.
2/3 of this book were close to 4 stars.. some were 3 stars. I dislike how when I give a lower rating, Audible changes the questions.. and it reflects different ones when you go above 4.
I wish they would let me select a rating of my own, like 3.5, or 3.9.
This would make a good movie. I look forward to reading or listening to future Will Robie stories.
Loved it. All the reviews base can't be wrong! A great story! Not disappointed.
The narration, and log style report of how things go for Mark Watley keep you wanting to find out what happens next One of my best downloaded audible books this year. His MacGyver-like style of figuring things out want you to be like him, or to be stranded with him if your ever in a situation like that. Every day is a test of survival.
It felt like you were right there.
So why if he had all those potatoes, why didn't he distill vodka? Use his little plutonium canister he used making a bathtub? Overall, this story just begs for a movie to be made from it. So much more there than "Gravity" with Sandra Bullock.
I would have made less mistakes by the villain in the story and by the hero. Some of the trouble that Court Gentry gets into is too apparent, for the author. It is a good follow up to the first book, however, there were just some short comings for me.
Thought provoking, yet there were annoying questions that weren't answered. Obviously it forces you to want to read the next books looking for answers... like what did Court do that got him burned, and he becomes this lone wolf.
Saving the lady in distress at the airport customs.
Well, duh.. there are already 4.
Its a good series if you aren't faint of heart for violence.
Okay, the bad guys are BAD GUYs, but maybe not so much patriotic stuff... just get back to Court Gentry being an ex-CIA assassin, and being hunted. Beginning started out slow, less violence, but if I asked to remove it, it wouldn't be the Grey man series.
No, cable tv series picked up by Showtime, HBO, or Netflix where they can push the sensors with violence. I would use an older man, not some baby faced kid. Det. Vega from Motive, Louis Ferreira, or Javier from Castle,Jon Huertas ?
I will get the next book!
Yes, definately, but to start back to the beginning.. Love the way the charactors develop, I am rooting for Will and Sara.
Just don't want to see Will's life or Sara's come to an end.
I do enjoy Will, Sara, and Faith.
Yes, if you love the Will Trent Series, you will come to enjoy the story, and the small parts connecting their lives.
It's a bit lenghy on the direction that this mystery-thriller takes us on, covering a lot of details about Lena and her husband Jarod. I never noticed it before, but I dislike one-word titles... I would prefer the detective thrillers to have a longer title. I do wish there might have been more inclusion of Faith.. maybe next book!
I was impressed with M Greaney's deep passion for well researched, action packed story. He doesn't over-define, but let's the reader feel like your looking over the gray man's shoulder through the story. I was impressed with his ability to escape being killed. I liked the least of his friend Ruth that was written out.
Yes, from Court's first assignment, to chapter after chapter of being chased.
Yes, I would like to see him get picked up by the Israeli's special intelligence agency.
Much more modern day action, as opposed to Jason Bourne series.
I was thoroughly disappointed that Ms. Collins let me down. She originally wrote about a resourceful, strong willed, brave young girl who was meant to survive in the district and become a leader of many districts. She made HG a page turner, or I hungered to keep listening to my audiobook! CF was good, but I expected more for the last book, instead it became a drag to finish. Katniss kept her family alive by hunting, with survival skills and raw energy. HG, Katniss was a selfless girl who saved her sisters' life by sacrificing herself. Instead by CF she starts to loose that control, to the third, MJ , what do we get? *(spoiler) A girl who's can't make up her mind who she loves, is just a pawn or puppet used by others, and becomes this spineless, whiney girl, who's drugged on morphfling, much way that Haymitch strayed in character as a drunk though out the trilogy. Just as the action gets exciting, she gets knocked out, and ends the buildup, the rebels won, we read or are told the Capitol fell, and no Katniss in it.. What a let-down. Prim is barely in the story, but yet we are supposed to feel remorse when she dies. Prim dying meant nothing, I don't know why Ms. Collins portrayed Katniss this way. It turned me off, and was left wishing the story would move on, and tired of people around her dying. . By the time the back third of the story was upon me, I just wanted it to end. I felt disattached. I felt no joy that the Capitol fell, or the rebels won.
She didn't choose Peeta, she ended up with him because he was the only one who stayed.
Just to have kids because Peeta wanted them, and raised them on the ashes of her people in the bombed district. I felt that Ms. Collins wrote this book just as if pushed to finish it for a big movie deal.
I need to read reviews.
If I ever write a book or trilogy, then I am going to make sure I have a prepared answers for why I chose to write it, or follow the direction of that book or series. I am not impressed with the let down of the trilogy.
