The book was great, as expected. My only criticism is around the sound effects of the audiobook. It is the first audiobook that I have listened to that contains gunfire, explosion, lightning and other sound effects. It either implies the listener has no imagination or some sound tech was overzealous and couldn't keep his newly acquired sound clip library in check.
The depth of the story and characters gave the book a real gripping edge while the author didn't seem to fixate on a specific character and only work that character's profile. All the important characters got the same attention from the author.
Leo Kritzky is an interesting character because of the love hate relationship that the reader can have with him.
Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators. I find myself searching on books narrated by Scott Brick and then looking at the story before deciding to buy the book. Scott has an amazing talent to lend authenticity to characters as much through his accents as his ability to vary his voice pitch and pace.
Initially I gave the book a 3-star rating but then changed it to 4. The story was very good, the plot was very good but the language started to unravel closer to the end. I really don't mind strong language when it is part of a situation, but it is gratuitous to the later part of the book.
I thought about the 3-star rating and realized that it might be an unfair punishment for a smaller literary sin. Back to the story, I would definitely recommend this book!
