This is my fave DeMille book- Totally engaging, believable and suspenseful!
John Corey is the main character you will have a love/hate relationship with- once you get over to him being a jerk, he's hilarious.
I'm listening a second time with my husband who is addicted as well.
Also listened to Up Country and Night Fall but this one is the best of the three.
Loved this book- my first from the author. I always love Scott Brick's narration so that was a given.
Definitely believable tech details which are hard to find in novels (and frustrating when it is not).
Liked the characters and the suspenseful situations- I'm looking forward to another Finder book!
Unless you are as pathetically inept as this main character, the first half to 3/4 of this book will torture you with her stupidity. How shallow, superficial and one-dimensional can a girl be? Her predictable bad financial choices and other antics are only funny if you are as bored and boring as she is.
Also, be willing to sit through the tedious, constant reading of grocery and shopping lists. Maybe this book would be better as a read, not a listen, that way you can skip these parts.
All of that said, the final chapters are the book's saving grace. If you put in the time and endure the nails-on-the-chalkboard mind-numbing beginning, you will be rewarded with the ending. Miraculously, this character actually ends up learning something and becomes someone you might be able to relate to.
Why do I end up wanting to read the next book? I hope that the new-improved Becky is the character of the rest of the series. If not, I am afraid I will want these 11 hours of my life back.
A better, funnier recommendation: Ain't She Sweet? Author: Susan Elizabeth Phillips
As a first time listener to an audio book I found the experience very entertaining. The narrator was easy to listen to and did a good job of altering his speech so that the listener knew clearly who was speaking. The book keeps your attention throughout and does well to mix a historical perspective with the fictional novel. My only complaint is that the end of the book seemed slightly more rushed than the first half. So much time was spent developing the plot and the interaction between the characters in the beginning that I could not help but feel that the ending came too quickly. However, I did enjoy the book and would encourage anyone who has an interest in mystery, conspiracy or history to listen.
