No I would not re-listen only because I only listen once. But if I had to pick one why not this one
Where Our hero played Russian Roulette with the Wolf.
The story was really three stories in one. The Hero Jack had his rules to live by and sometimes let them slide a bit. The Atlantic City robbery and it's unfolding was well constructed, especially Jacks several times escaping his own end and the backdrop story of a foreign bank job gone bad with it's relationships all kept me in the book.
If the author's next book would use the same main character and narrator I for one would snap it up.
I never re-listen to a book so the answer is No.
I expected all along that 8 would open his eyes again. I liked the way it was done
All of the narrators did their usual good job.
I thought Adam taking out his dad and then supporting the cast was written well.
I was not ready for the book to end and so I will be ready for the next installment. I hope it comes out sooner rather than later.
The story off learning how to win and then having each class of players believe in the coach and each other while almost never losing is in a fictional story something you would expect. In the real world for it to actually happen was really interesting.
Winning like 195 out of 196 sounds impossible but it happened. I am not amazed that since the 1994 season the coach has kept up the nearly impossible winning percentage.
It was steady and kept me involved. I was able to listen to the book in two days which meant his work kept my interest.
When the opposing coach had taken lead and was saying a prayer that his team would hold on. De la Salle started it's final drive and scored with 11 seconds left to beat him. After the game when he was asked what he was doing he said he was praying. He should have known not to say a prayer asking for the Catholic school to lose.
I would like a follow up book for the 10 seasons that have passed since the book ended.
How the two main characters made the story work.
I first listened to Mr. Bennington's work on Adjuster Stories and it was a very interesting to hear him make the insurance claim stories come to life. I then listened to Boating: A Life's Journey which kept my interest all the way. He has a great voice and knows how to make a book and the characters come to life. I am looking forward to his next release.
I expect this book has a companion one on the way to us and I will be able to spend a few more hours enjoying Joshua Bennington continuing the story.
I enjoyed the character banter and the diversity of what each of them represents. I believe this was the final one in the series but there are still lots of places to go should the author decide to let her readers continue to enjoy the characters.
No-Only because I never listen to a book twice.
I liked the stories flow and the crisp writing with snap back dialogue.
I have read two reviews that said the reader did not finish listening or did not care how this one ended. Frankly I wonder what kind of a fiction book could please those reviewers. This is a solidly written story and it was performed well. I will look forward to more from this author.
I think what made me like the book from the beginning was easily because of the other series books and the TV series making the characters be in focus.
The story never seemed to have a slow point so I just kept listening until the guy says " Audible hopes you enjoyed this program,"
The writing is good enough so the two of them seem to easily weave in and out of the story.
I liked the last chapter and the ending
This series is one of the best. Lots of action and colorful characters make each book in the series an excellent choice.
Silva--- The author winds him up and keeps him ticking.
I just wish the next book will be here tomorrow. I just love the series.
Good writer and I keep my eye out for word on his new releases. The narrator, Chris Rummel is really good. I sometimes make purchases based on who is narrating.
I felt this was the weakest book in the series yet it was worth listening to though I kept waiting for it to suddenly get better. That did not happen but I will still wait for the next volume.
With a tale to tell the author concentrated on two characters that brought the story to life. This I agree was the best way to present the details.
The part I liked least was the lack of suspense related to one characters demise. You knew he was lost and the book just took too long to explain what was unable to be explained. The Navy basically lost contact with a sub that the Japs likely took out based on post war records etc.
I would see it because it would make a better movie when presented with good visuals which are of course left to the readers imagination as the audio story is presented. It has been too long without a good Submarine movie hitting the theaters.
