Best book so far (out of 150+) brilliantly told, brilliantly narrated, a must for all audible fans
I can relate to all the five star reviews, but there are quite a number of things which really, really bug me like; "Hogar, Hogar, Hogar, Hogar ..." and "Corn, Corn, Corn, Corn..." not having read this this book you wouldn't what the fiddles I'm talking about, but confident that you will actually listen to the book at some stage you will find out......
Story is absolutely fine, a trifle long at times, but I like that in a book...
The story itself is not bad, the characters, narration and the romantic interludes however are totally, well 2nd grade high-school stuff.
Wouldn't recommend this to anyone ... it's like a school project
How a good writer like DeMille can start off a terrific book and then convert to a plot which can be found in 99% of cheap thrill books is unclear to me.
A former NY cop, some old farts and his rich girlfriend save the world from total destruction within the last minute .... throughout the book I feared such an outcome but then I though DeMille might surprise us ... he didn't ... all in all great writer, boring story 13 in a dozen plots.... very dissapointed
I have 173 books in my library, read most of them, about 80% were carefully selected, as was Matterhorn.
Matterhorn being, up until now at least, the best of the bunch. I never though I could get into war-stories, but I gave it a try and man, it's worth it.
I listened to the complete book within a time period of 36 hours... just couldn't put it to rest. The difficulty as always is to find something equally entertaining.
what a great novel.... makes me want to move to >New York ... great novel!
It took me 2 days to get through this 18 hour book. I read reviews where people say "I couldn't put it down" and so on and I think, yeah right, but this I couldn't put down, exciting, well written and the plot ... simply terrific. One of the top 3 most exciting books I have ever read/listened to, and I listen to app. 5 audiobooks a month for the past 3 years...
Musread it if you're into thrillers/detectives and well thought through plots.
Facts are probably all correct, but so are those of an encyclopedia.
Rather boring/similar to Da Vinci story line with a very unsatisfying ending, to which I had to wrestle myself up to.
