Love the story, but the pacing of this reader is off. I prefer earlier performers who growled out the story with a rhythm and tenor of a man believable as the main character, Uthred.
More volumes please.
Uthred. To listen to stories.
More depth to the vampire, and less of the romance. I don't need a book for sex, I want a good story. And the romance/vampire thing has been over done by far.
It was just another vampire romance, with explicit sex talk constituting a good 3/4 of the story. Give me a break, please.
Loved the details on climbing, it brought back vivid memories of my youth when I enjoyed such adventures. On issues of climbing. The author seemed quite on point. Unfortunately, all mention of "English gas" (oxygen) theory was hopelessly off, due to the author's seeming inability to describe the concept of diminished partial pressures at higher altitudes.
I definitely intend to try another.
This is my first.
Not really, it seems to pretty well go full circle.
A good yarn
Good entertainment for the spy buff. A pleasurable listen without too much depth. Not a classic but well worth its price.
In online vids, yes.
I can see how a good story turns on a convergence of events, but this one pulls convenient coincidence at will. The author gets his muse out of trouble by repeated lucky breaks so often that nothing seems real. I remember Patterson as being a good storyteller. What happened?
