The book is quite good and fills in the story as expected but I couldn't get over the reading itself. I think this is the third narrarator in this series and that's livable but what isn't is that he couldn't be bothered to listen to previous books and keep all the pronunciations the same. All the character names, realm and city names are so misspronunced it's difficult to follow the story. It seems disrespectful for a narrator to take on a reading like this without doing some research and to pretty much completely wreck the book. All I know is I couldn't get past it and that I'm very dissapointed.
A decent story with some fun characters though the technology seems dated. An overall good standalone novel and mystery. Doesn't need any sequels and not Bova's best but worth listening to if you're a Bova fan.
This book picks up the action well and keeps it going. Adds well to the story line and fills in many needed points. Ends without a major cliffhanger that will bother you all through the wait to the next book. Some real fun twists in this book and some of the usual characters from the previous books are missing for much of the book giving a break to the hero's comical love life. Over all a good solid book and addition to the series.
This was a good solid book. Everything I expect from David Baldacci. I know many are complaining about the sound effects but honestly I only noticed them because people pointed them out. Yes it's a bit different with the effects but the book takes you in and it just becomes a part of the whole experience. Hope there are more books with these characters in the future.
I found these stories to be fun and well written, although the short story setup was a surprise. Gunn is just a great character and the stories are both clever and fun to listen to. Both volumes were worth listening to and add a good amount of plot to the infamous Sam Gunn always being mentioned in many of the other Grand Tour books. I enjoyed these stories very much.
I thought the book was pretty well done. It was not all that racy and it was pretty amusing. I would point out that the things Cally does kept the storyline where it needed to be with the type of role her character has taken on. Far too many people complained about it being explicit but it would seem that this was simply the wrong type of book for them rather than any problem with the book itself. The main thing I enjoy about John Ringo's writing is the directness and allowing the books to go to the place they need to rather than placating political correctness. The world is what it is and though the story is fiction much of Cally's behavior is well within the ugly realities of life.
