As I listened to this story it difficult to understand where it was going. In the end, it was unsatisfying. The story was clogged with psychological ramblings and many unanswered questions. Perhaps it was the translation or the age in which this was written. The concept was solid but the execution was not.

A modern day Rin Tin Tin
An action filled story that kept me listening when I should be doing other things. I enjoyed the twists and turns of the storyline.
Entertaining, insightful, riveting
David Desh leads us through the adventure
When Kira and David escape the safe house. The description of the mind altering experience is amazing.
Thoroughly entertaining. I enjoy a story I can try and puzzle out. This one has many entertaining twists
The easy flow to the story, the surprising twists. Nice character development
I would compare this to one of Michael Crichton's books Prey. There is an excellent story line and continuing action.
I was not impressed with the narrator's voice characterizations. He is not a narrator I would pick for this sort of book.
Well worth the time. Very entertaining with a some thought provoking dialogue.
Stryker as the protagonist is a believable personality. One whose intelligence is masked by his appearance. Great character development.
I can't nail down a single scene.
Not initially. But about halfway through I found myself lingering to catch a few more paragraphs wishing I could sit back and go on.
I am hoping there will be a sequel. I enjoyed the way the story was developed. I felt we were given all the clues but I didn't suspect the real murderer.
I enjoyed the story. The prose was excellent, painting pictures with wonderful descriptions. The ending was weak. I found it disappointing after the buildup. The wordcraft made the book worthwhile.
This brings back the granduer of Heinlein and melds beautifully with Robinson's style. This book crosses age boundaries to reach young and old. I loved the twists and the imbellishments within the story line. Great Book
This book is a great historic novel. The detailed research into this time period was obviously extensive. The religious references for Norse and theie entire way of life was insightful. The way of life was obviously difficult. An entertaining storyline
I was captured by this book very quickly. The story line was great. I had difficukty turning it off to go to work. It held me throughout. This is as good as anything Dan Brown has written. I enjoy even the poetic license. I will probably listen to it again.
