I usually look forward to listening to a book that I have read before. The narration adds one more dimension and I am amazed at what I missed when reading the book myself. BUT not in this case. I forced myself to listen to 3 hours of the dragging narration before I finally gave up. A good narration can really make a difference, unfortunately a bad one can completely ruin a book.
Nope. It is not that Nick Sullivan does a bad job it is just that George Guidall does a much better Mitch Rapp.
He could have finished the book. I was left hanging. I actually went back to Audible to download the missing last chapter and then realized that there was none.
Mr. Martin needs to do his research before he puts pen to paper. There were too many glaring inconsistencies to make reading this book enjoyable. If you enjoy Harlequin Romance books, you will love this one. Simpering romance with no imagination.
I did enjoy listening to Daniel May's deeply resonating voice.Luci Bell does a wonderful job!
I enjoyed this book allot. It does make you stop and think. Interesting concepts and angles. I look forward to reading more of Emma Donaghue.
Nice fluid experience.
I definitely wanted to see them out of that room and looked forward to when I had time to listen to another chapter.
John Grisham is always good but he outdid himself with THE RACKETEER. The story twists and turns and it doesn't take long to realized that he isn't telling us the WHOLE story. I couldn't wait to finish the book (I just HAD to see if I had figured it out!) but I hated for it to end. I will read this one again.
JD Jackson does a fantastic job with this book. I couldn't ask for more in a narrator!
I have always loved Evelyn Anthony's period spy novels. This novel is set in America with an American protagonist but the author is obviously English and not particularly familiar with American idioms and slang. I found myself gritting my teeth when she repeatedly referred to a Chevrolet as a "Chev" (I am sure it is a common term in the UK but not in the US!) or the elevator as a "lift". The narrator reads with an English accent. This also bothered me until I realized that it would have been impossible to pull off the English slang with a New England accent! Audio books tend to accentuate mistakes such as these that are relatively easy to over-look when you read it silently.
Oh yes, please offer us more of Evelyn Anthony. She is one of my favorites! But maybe it would be better to stick with her English novels!
I love to listen to Carolyn Pickles (unless she is trying to do an American accent!)
