This book dragged on too much for me. I was also disappointed with LeCarre's narration. He seemed to revel in his own words versus tell a good story.
Harlen Coben does a good job of creating another unique story. Good book for a long 7 hour drive. Not a "on the edge of your seat" type of thriller, but good twists and good characters.
When I read the preview and saw that this was the next chapter in the Poet story I wondered if it would really work or if it was Connelly needing to get out another book. Many times books like this dont work especially with such a strong start like the Poet. Happily I'll admit I shouldnt be such a skeptic. Connelly is a great author and each book always seems to stand so well on its own. Great listen. If you havent read the Poet - buy both and you wont get much sleep until you finish them both!
This was a tough listen. For the most part this is a one person narrative from a very disturbed troubled person. There are some twists but you have to slog thru hours of comtemplative narrative that is just depressing. If you like psychological introspection it might be for you, it was a disappointment to me.
I listen to lots of mysteries and I get tired of being able to predict the story evolution. This had a good pace, good story, and some interesting twists and turns. Woth the try.
Da Vinci code certainly has a unique plot - it will be interesting to some and maybe offensive to others. It moves along nicely making a long drive more tolerable. Plot was a nice change of pace and does take you along some paths not seen in many mystery novels. Reader is good although the foreign accents are pretty silly and sometimes hard to understand.
Took this book on a long drive and found myself distracted and not listening as much as I normally do. Plot was a bit predictable and I found the changing readers distracting as the book progressed.
