Good story . .unfortunately the reader made the female lead sound like a whiney 17 year old. His men's voice were either goofy or gruff. . .This would probably be a lot better with a different reader. . . at times I felt like I was listening to a book written for very young adults.
There are so many u-turns in this story, I found myself shaking my head in disabelief. It is so beautifully written and performed. Stick with it, it takes a chapter to get into the story but well worth the wait. The readers were absolutely amazing.
Being from Louisiana, I enjoy James Lee Burke. This is one of his angrier books. Even Molly gets mad in this one. If you are a fan of past books, you will enjoy it. I might have to sit back and digest it some more before I decide it's placement in "best of Dave".
I kept waiting to a leveling off period of where the characters were not angry with each other. I ended up feeling sorry for everyone for so much loss.
John, your editor didn't show up on this one. . .and neither the action and clarity of plot. Two many characters and subplots . . However, the last two chapters were vintage Davenport . . but btw, (spoiler alert) do you really think Letty would have just walked by Sam's room and shut the door with gunman in the house?
I enjoyed this book. Interesting young adult novel. A little muddy in parts but worth the listen if you like Sci-Fi. Thoughtful concepts on aging and the chase for eternal youth.
Love the story . .love the writer . .and didn't want poor sound quality to ruin it.. took a chance and it was O.K. . .however, there is no excuse for Achilles's name to be mispronounced continually in the second half . . . . where was the producer? He is not a minor character in the story. It is tolerable only because you know you want to hear the story to continue the series . .but I can't believe this version was approved for production with such glaring errors . .sad.
Very, Very good. This one kept me edgy and worried till the end. One of the best I have listened to all year.
I kept on waiting for this to become a five star for me . . .The characters are not as devoloped as other Follet works and there are too many story lines. It was not smooth and it felt in need of a good editor near the end. I'm hoping the rest of the trilogy is better . .
The writer cannot get past 1 minute without using the F word or other vulgarities....I don't consider myself a prude . . . I am a fan of Pulp Fiction! I'm surprised the Audio found a clip for the listener to hear that did not have bad words in it. I tried to get past the "F" word but then his use of Sh*t plus the "C" word involving sex with his lover finally did me in. There may be a story in there somewhere but the obscene language is extremely distracting. A BIG disappointment since Audible has chosen to showcase it this month. I asked for and received my credit back for the first time ever.
