Excellent! the best book of 2008 by far. A thriller beyond imagination, that might even happen in our own backyard!! Characters are well developed, the good guys are truly good,loyal and perfection itself. the "bad" guys are tough, ugly and meet all expectations. With everyone, good and/or bad, their lives are all entwined to bring this novel to the most thrilling, unexpected end.
Three cheers to Halan Coben. and three cheers to your best Narrator, Scott Brick.
Definitely, especially with Scott Brick as the narrator.
Yes. The focus required by Quinn and Nate to find each other in the obscure island was terrific. Once having a tiny piece of information and then continuing to piece the puzzle together. The characters were heroic.
I couldnt stop listening, always on the edge of my seat. No laughing or crying, just rooting for the Quinn and his team.
Can't wait for Brett Battle's next book.
Action, action, action. Demille writes like LeCarre. Just boring stuff until the last 3 chapters.
Never, I love this genre but DeMille dropped the ball.
Not Scott's fault, he is a wonderful narrator and it's not his fault that the story was uninteresting, more of the same blah blah blah, until finally he meets with the Panther.
The characters were okay, only that the story was uninteresting and boring.
I think Demille should read the latest books by Baldacci and Flynn. They start off with action and suspense and keep the interest level high thru-out their novels.
The main character Is like the James Bond of the military. Action, suspense and a great story. Baldacci gets you hooked as quickly as the story begins and never lets up.
The two adversaries finally coming together in the fight to against slavery. Both heros are each a dynamic force.
Of course, their voices....reading the story as if they too are in " the fight". Voices with the correct timber at all times.
I didn't think that any book from Baldacci could be as good as the heros in the Camel Club. It was an awesome, exciting listen.
The intensity of the fast paced storyline. being able to identify with the hero is especially exciting, his bravery in face of all the danger. Kept me on the edge of my seat the entire book.
All moments were memorable, most especially, the loss of his partner, the agony , sadness and then, his conviction to get the killers.
Perfectly read; understandable with just the right emotion.
"black List" more intense than any other "list" ever produced.
I was saddened to listen to the story and feel that my hero is getting older, seems to have lost his "edge".
Too muchtime was spent listening to the comments of Allon's superiors and colleagues reminding Allon that he is getting older and might not be up to the mission assigned. Otherwise, the story was only a little better than mediocre. One could almost believe that Shamran was more up to the task than our hero.
Compared to the other books by DeSilva and the main character, Allon, it was disappointing? Where is the suspense? I could determine the ending of the story once I was only 10 pages into the book.
DeSilva has been one of my favorite authors, up until now. Spiffy up Allon, get his energy and excitement back, his always knowing how to handle any situation with valor and confidence as in all the previous novels, even if he gets a bit older.
Yes, I'm willing to give the author another chance.
Not sure. He is however a wonderful narrator
Choose another book, The Fallen Angel is not the best!
No more "dark" novels.
The excellent dramatation of the storyline. The unknowing reason why the hero is being persecuted and loosing his life as he knows it.
Yes indeed. I could never anticipate the next event about to be unfolded. I became just as irritated as the hero when all these terrible things started to happen to him. Once the reader finally understands, then it's a race to the finish to see it good can conquer evil.
The hero, of course. I also identified with the woman who helps him from Community Relations of the local Police Dept.
Truly an excellent read, the best drama I've read in a very long time. It compares to "Hold Tight" by Harlan Coben.
Not my usual kind of book, but thought I would listen and either agree or disagree with all the fuss. Much to my surprise, it grabbed me with the first paragraph and its been an absolute wonderful, awesome read. The descriptions of each character were written to perfection; their voices, perfect. The lives, dreams and disappointments are today, so hard to imagine. I found myself pulling for each person and saying outloud "yes yes yes". an inspiring story. A definite favorite.
Excellent story-line, great development of characters and Connelly at his best. I thoroughly enjoyed his latest.
Heroines should never be wimpy,emotional on the job or think it alright to become emotionally vulnerable to a teenage boy. My heroines need grit and substance. I could not even finish the book as I was gagging on the interaction between a grown, supposedly professional woman of the law and a sly troubled child!! Sorry Karin Slaughter but I shall not be reading any of your books again for awhile.
