The narrator in this book makes most of the characters sound like a hillbilly family reunion. The silly verbal sound effects were hard to get through.
I have read everything written by DeMille. This is the very worst. The story didn't get the least bit interesting until the end. I agree with the other review writers that the wise cracks were very annoying and pretty much ruined the book for me.
I have listened to or read just about all of this writers books, but found this one to be so overdone that I found myself fast forwarding a lot. The constant reminiscing by the characters was annoying. This whole story could have been told better in half the time.
I Couldn't finish this book. I found the narrators voice inflections so annoying that I had to shut it off. I am real sorry I bought the first two books right off the bat, no I have two credits wasted.
I couldn't listen to this book. For some reason I found if to be one of the most boring books I have ever downloaded. I found myself fast forwarding time and time again waiting for something interesting to listen to, finally I just stopped. I have 415 books in my Audible library, and this is only the second book I have not finished.
This book was thoroughly enjoyed by my wife and I during a driving trip from CT to FL and back. The book took us the entire journey less the last hour and an half. A very good listen.
I have been a member of Audible for years. I hate audio books with music and sound tracks. I think Audible should put some sort of designation on the books that have music so those of use who cant stand it in a book can pass it by without spending our credits on something that is so annoying. I do like Cornwell and truly wish his books would ditch the music.
Enough with the stupid sound effect and music in audio book. I dont care how good the story is, these effects ruin it for me.
I am enjoying the story, but i wish audible carried a disclaimer with each book that includes music. I hate having to hit the FF to get through that crap. I dont ever recall opening a book and hearing music, For the life of me cant figure out how it has found it has way into audio books
I found this to be one of the slowest boring books i have downloaded in quite a few years. Maybe its just me, but I almost tossed it many times during the course of the book, and wish I had by the time it ended.
