And this is one of the best audiobooks ever performed.
If you know the book, this improves that knowledge. If you don't know the book, you're in for a real treat. This is a classic with some of the most richly drawn characters in literature.
An excellent book, an excellent audiobook.
Let me start by saying that I *used* to be a big fan of Vince Flynn, but this (unfortuantely) may be my last book of his. If you're a big fan of the 2000s, you're gonna love this book: A full-blown Ayn Rand-ian lecture on torture, preemptive war and the whole neocon world view.
The only book that was more ridiculously right-wing that I've managed to get through is Crichton's "State of Fear," which was also the only other book I've ever given one star.
What a truly awful book this is. Very little action, almost entirely political lecture (just like "State of Fear"). I'll probably try another Flynn because I used to consider him one of my favorite thriller writers ("Consent to Kill" was one of the best I've read), but if it veers down this path again I'll have to give up on him which I really don't want to do.
What a book, what a character in Lisbeth! If you like the kind of book where you can cheer out loud...
This is it.
This is my third Russo novel, after Nobody's Fool and Straight Man, and it's my belief that Russo is perhaps America's greatest current novelist.
This is a beautiful book, with characters that are as richly drawn and as unique as some of Dickens' most memorable.
And McLarty's narration is perfect, as always.
This is a very good book, adeptly read. It does take a fairly jarring turn about 3/4 of the way through, which may have turned off some of the reviewers.
There are several memorable scenes here that will stay with you long after you finish this, which makes it well worth the read.
A very good book. This is what science fiction should be, IMHO. The setting is clearly strange and the apocalyptic mood is clearly there, but the story is about the characters. The last 1/4 of the book is excellent (and haunting) sci-fi, and for the most part you do care about the characters and the world they inhabit.
An unsual story, told in the form of a letter to OBL describing the effect that an AQ attack on a London football match had on her and her young family.
Well told by a very likable everywoman lower middle class letter writer, narrated to perfection by Susan Lyons.
What a great writer Connelly is. What a great character Bosch is.
If you appreciate both fine literature and excellent suspense, read all of the Harry Bosch novels, and particularly this one--one of his best.
Wow. What a book, what a performance... As a Margaret Atwood fan, I listened to this book even though it was abridged, and was not disappointed: Highly recommended.
What a great book--a psychological thriller that is not in the least bit dated. Excellent characters make this one of my favorite books. And George Guidall adds to the experience with his flawless narration (including 20-character Russian names!). Bravo!
Excellent book, nearly impossible to put down. Coben packs more twists and surprises into one book than most suspense writers do in a lifetime. And Scott Brick is at the top of his game here: A masterful reading.
If you like suspense novels even marginally, you should love this book and this performance.
