I could listen to Grover Gardner read the yellow pages.
But I doubt i would choose another book by Robert Littell. This book had too much narrative and too little action for my taste. In fact, I had to go back and listen to some of the book to remember what it was about.
I never understand why Audible asks this question.
Grover Gardner's voice makes me feel like I am reading the book
The only inspiration I got was not to get another book of his. I have read other reviews of this author, and a lot of people really enjoy them. Guess his style of writing just does't work for me.
I wouldn't discourage anyone else to try it
George Guidall is my favorite reader. I could listen to him read the yellow pages.
The most interesting part in the book was when the terrorists were building the bomb in a barn.
Frankly, I just listened to the book for entertainment and escape from "the real world". Nothing struck me as a topic I would like to learn more about but then I wasn't looking.
It was just a spy story.
Nothing..it was George Guidall!
I would have Jack played by Jeremy Renner, Kyra Sedgewick (sp.?) the girlfriend, and Joel Kinnamon play Schaefer.
Good story, but TMI about London sewage system.
Several times I wasn't sure if I was listening to a past or present event
Increase the length of the audio sample so I would have a better idea whether I liked the narrator or not
The other book was narrated by Scott Brick and I personally don't like the sound of his voice
I never finished either book, so I plan to get a print book to see what I think of the author
A different author and narrator
Words with more than 3 syllables and a plot.
Nobody comes to mind
Not for me.
It would be difficult to recommend any changes because it earned the Booker Prize. That is a very intimidating award.
Thomas Cromwell has always intrigued me, but I got tired of him...I am not so intrigued any more
He was the only reason I kept trying to like the book.
Well, I don't plan to invest the time finishing it.
Even with Mr. Slater's skills,I i was often baffled about who was talking and what/who they were talking about. This is sometimes a disadvantage in any book with the audio format, as I can't flip back the pages. That said, I probably wouldn't have had the patience to go back and forth in the book, either.
