Causes great sociaetal introspection
Comparing only takes away from the drama
A family brought together then torn apart by tragedy
Now this was a difficult one to get through. But everything brought together at the last moment. Actually might have saved too much until the end.
Quality story, with excellent narration. If you love political dramas, this is a must listen.
It's been a while since I've listened to a book in a couple days, I did this time and loved every minute of it.
Two or was it three story lines were intermingled flawlessly. This was truly a "Good one".
So nice to listen to a story that grabs you at the first word and holds on to you through out.
Story was very good at the start then it went on and on and ........
BUT, I did enjoy it after taking long breaks and clearing my mind from time to time.
This book had me glued from the start to the ending. Personalizing the main characters with a bit of their non-professional home live was a nice touch.
A very good read.
Easy to review. Story was week, didn't flow and even Dick Hill couldn't make this story palatable.
Solid story line that made it difficult to take breaks from listening and Scott Brick did his usual perfect performance. Really enjoyed this one.
Nothing wrong with the book but nothing really right either. The story of course was weak, but most of these Ceepak stories are. The ending is just not plausible so the entire story becomes a bit of a waste of time. Not sure I'll read any more of these.
For first time writer Jason Matthews, his insight made this book superb. A times I felt this could be used as a training manual for becoming a spy. Also, Jeremy Bobb was a perfect fit to narrate this story.
I have listened to 200+ audio books and "The Sparrow" will go down as one of the top 10.
This story should lend itself well to a follow-up or sequel, I can only hope.
