The book is very evident. 2 hours into it you know everything that will happen. The plot is slow and long. Its not a book I would ever read again and wouldn't have missed it if I had never read it.
I liked that the book picked up where the first one left off. What I liked least was the main character, Dewey, and the believability of the book. The author puts in so much accurate detail only to stumble over major believable scenarios.
It was very anti-climatic and disappointing
Sound less like a girl.
No. Even though I know there is one, the "hero" just isn't that great and all the unnecessary detail slows and stifles the book.
I usually hate abridgements, but in this author's case, and with all the extra unneeded stuff in the book I would recommend the abridgement.
The smartness of the book and how he shows the America's dependency on oil and energy. However, as real as he tried to make it the premise of the super genius terrorist becoming a super rich and super smart American was reaching, a lot. If you are going to make a book real and authentic, which is what the author claims he was trying to do, then you need to do it uniformly.
The one where the sub character saves people at the damn. Sadly the main character, Dewey Andreas, wasn't as memorable, or as central as he should have been.
No. The narrator always made certain characters very angry and growled everything they said. It simply didn't fit; no one is angry all the time. The narrator just did not to a good job of making the characters real or believable.
I was hoping the book would be better than what it was; something similar to the Mitch Rapp series, but it so wasn't. It was an okay book as long as you like a lot of different characters with not a lot of attention being paid to the supposed hero. The author was very detailed in his writing, sometimes to detailed. For example, I don't feel that the full name of the guns need to be specified as often as they were - it was just too much and slowed the book. He also took too many tangents into the lives of the sub-characters making the book to fragmented.
Among the top. I would listen to it again.
There wasn't a single moment. It was just the overall character of John Puller. He was expertly done and is very memorable and now one of my favorite characters along with Mitch Rapp and Odd Thomas.
Many and this is up there with his best.
No idea, I didn't read the book.
This book was great. I love the John Puller character. Great book with lots of twists and mini climaxes. Definitely recommend, but listen to Zero Day first (another great book).
I ended up staying up until 0300 hours because I couldn't put the book down.
Great book and great series.
Meltzer is trying to create a memorable character in Beacher White and for me it just isn't happening. If you LOVE history and really into politics you would enjoy this book far more than me. I got sick and tired of all the historical detail and wanted a bit more action. Throw in the fact that the conspiracy part (all of which is continued from book 1 - the inner circle) was getting pretty thin. In the end I was just sick and tired of the book and wanted it to end - the actual ending was incredibly disappointing as I really wanted the bad buy (the President in this case) to die.
This is not one of his better books or series. I have enjoyed others far more.
Love Scott Brick
It needs and the story was left at a place for a third book. Sadly it is not a series I will likely continue due to my complete lack of interest in history and politics. If there was more action and more enticing twists and turns then I would be more interested in a third book.
Above the middle, but not at the top. This was a good thriller with a lot of historical content that got wrapped into a fairly believable conspiracy theory. A definite recommend on this book.
The whit of the main character.
I love Scott Brick. He is one of my favorite readers.
Yes, but unless the book is really horrid I want to listen to them in one sitting.
Only if they weren't easily offended by bad language and some political/environmental stances. Overall the book was pretty good, not great, but good. I have read other vampire romance series that I enjoyed more. For me the biggest turn off was the foul language, particularly the F word. Also, the sex scenes were more graphic than passionate which was disappointing.
the most interesting aspect was the view point taken on Vampires. The least was how predictable the plot was for the main characters.
Her performance was great.
The book is okay, not great and not horrible.
The story was okay but the language was extremely profane and unessesary. The movie was actually better and cleaner. If you don't like foul language then avoid this book and rent the movie. In addition, the narration wasn't that great either. The book simply wasn't worth the credit.
The book could have been good, but the "F____" word is used far too much for me. Outside of that the author uses good descriptions. The book is obvious, but interesting. If you don't mind a lot of swear words then you might like the book; otherwise, avoid.
This was a wonderful and entertaining stroy. Kept me captivated and wanting more. Skip the intro about how and why the author wrote the book; it was because of that I deducted a star.
