This is not up to Silva's usual efforts. It's a very contrived and boring story.
This was the weakest of the Century Trilogy. I like some of Mr. Follett's works, but I could not finish this one.
John Lee is generally my favorite Audible reader but there are parts of this book which he shouldn't have attempted.
Don't waste your money/credit.
Yes, but a different narrator. McClain actually is a good reader, but his impersonations of the characters are awful - and very distracting.
No. Because of the reader.
If McClain had just read the book and left off the character impersonations.
To not listen to any more books read by Jonathan McClain.
I usually very much enjoy Scott Brick's reading. He was perfect in The Lion's Game. But for some reason, he greatly slowed down his naration in The Lion to the point that I hardly recognize him. It is very annoying. Because of the reader, I would not listen to this book.
