A different book. There is no way to save this turkey.
Absolutely, he is one of my favorite authors. I am hoping this book was just a fluke.
Serious disappointment. I have read all of his other books and loved them. It is hard to believe that DeMille actually wrote this.
If you fall asleep at night listening to this book and miss 8 hours of it, don't worry. You probably didn't miss anything. Seriously, nothing happens for hours at a time. This could have been a 30 minute book.
Why was this book published? I rarely walk away from a book after investing several hours, but I have no interest whatsoever in finishing it. I think I will go back and read some of his older books to remember why he is one of my favorite authors
I don't get all the hype about this book. I gave up halfway through. It just rambles on and on and on. Bored me to tears
Though his books are hit and miss these days, I will usually give them a try.
It was just OK. Nothing special, but maybe a good book for a long drive.
Lately, I have to read Clancy books twice to be able to follow it. This book had fewer characters to try to follow.
While this book didn't have the magic of his earlier books, it was still an interesting book.
Sure, a couple of years from now.
Yes, it was actually rather unpredictable. It was nice to have a Quality book that I didn't want to stop reading after all the other turkeys I have read recently.
I got a few laughs out of it.
Michael Connelly seems to be able to come up with fresh stories every book. I have been disappointed by several of my favorite authors recently (Tom Clancy, James Patterson, Nelson Demille) , but Connelly and and few others (John Sandford, Ken Follett, Vince Flynn) are still putting out 4 and 5 star books.
The message is very good, but the message is repeated over and over for 6 hours.
Parts were very interesting involving the political realities of the day. But other parts just dragged on.
The narration was a little odd. There were no separations between scenes. It could be a full minute before you could figure out that the book had switched to a different scene with different characters.
It has high ratings, so somebody must have liked it
Paying for it
I quit reading this garbage about halfway through.
It is a good history
Not if he read the same way. He finishes every sentence at a whisper. You can have the volume uncomfortably loud so you can hear the whole sentence, or strain to hear the end of the sentence at normal volume.
