    What disappointed you about All You Could Ask For?

    The women were not at all endearing. I felt they were all three entitled, spoiled and self-absorbed. I learned nothing from any of them about how to fight. They weren't heroic to me, which is odd because from listening to the interview with Mr. Greenberg, it would seem that his inspiration for this novel was a tremendous woman.


    Has All You Could Ask For turned you off from other books in this genre?

    The genre - you mean books "written" by "celebrities" because they think they are entitled to use their name to sell a cause? No, not really. I actually thought I could learn a little about the author by listening to the book, and I guess I did.


    Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

    Marie was the best character in the book (unselfish!!!) and Ms. Gilbert really brought her to life.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The only redeeming quality was that proceeds from the book go to a good cause.

    Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst - enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.No one else can match Robie's talents as a hitman...no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.

    Where does The Hit rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    As good as any of the spy stories I've heard.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Plot definitely kept me on the edge. It wasn't completely predictable and the dynamic between the two main characters was great.


    What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    They seem to really understand the characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes!
