Lion's Game was in the top five out my 700+ audible books on file. John Corey was back at his earlier brazen, witty. intuitive (lovable) self. This book was mentioned in two other De Mille books and I had wondered why it was not available in audible form. From my grateful heart,I enjoyed this book more than any other book I have listened to this year.
Very clever, witty and challenging plot. Perry has never received his due. Thank you Mr. Perry
It is weaker than other Connelly novels I have enjoyed
not write it in 2 weeks
Thank you Lois, you sounded like Churchill in some of Miles pep talks filled with fire and physicological wisdom. Expected some loose ends of incomplete stories but all three stories were rich, powerful Miles adventures up to your usual standards.Really enjoyed it. P.S. The book is not 7 hours but 9 1/2 hrs. of great reading
About two hours in I felt a haze from so many books of invincible agents, then a very likeable , less serious, assistant came in that broke the routine progression. Stone's characters are driven, results oriented professionals that do not constantly wrap themslves in our flag to justify the need for extremes when needed. MICAH DALTON seems to have found more mental stablility but kept his dangerous nature. In all good story, great characters and well researched history.
Why not say Travis was a nerd, then his inability to strategize dangerous confrontations would not have us cursing him and the author. Koontz always developes numerous characters and makes us like them and pull for favorable outcomes. Too many alternate, superior options in dealing with incounters were ignored like a young boy trying to deal with tough problems. The story was entertaing but if I were delta I would want to slap Koontz around for givin him a copy boy mentality
Just watch two hours of desperate housewives and please don't call me in the morning.
A great story that is superbly written and delivered. I am humbled and inspired.
I read the reviews of the other copies of this book that had audio problems in the past. I am grateful that this remake was done. This is a remarkable story for many reasons. It is so well written,suspenseful,colorful characters , interesting topic. I can't believe this is the only book written by this author. I find myself wanting to know more about the author and his background in intelligence.
Nelson Demille is best at this type novel. Although I truly enjoyed this book, I wondered if Haig would be sued for plagiarism considering the similairty of the characters,dialog and storyline to "the lion game " by Nelson Demille. This had very good twist at the end.
