Hmmm. Maybe but only if you are in to sci-fi.
Hard to explain but the voice can really make or break the character. My impression is the narrator fell a little short on this one.
Yes, enjoyable enough but not one of my favorites.
The narrator did an excellent job portraying the characters in the story, and handled the various accents well. I had previously listened to a story narrated by Dick Hill and found the narration terrible in accordance with the main character- must have just not found his niche with that one. I must say the narrator has more than redeemed himself with this story and I look forward to listening to another book narrated by Mr. Hill.
I don't think I've ever found a book I would be capable of sitting still for all day.
The story had promise, but just didn't really develop into something that gets you hooked. Sometimes books take the first 50-100 pages to take off and I'm the patient sort. This one just never built up the steam to get rolling.
I do enjoy this narrator.
Yes, but mostly for the Special Agent Pendergast fans.
Great performance. Mr. Brick is an excellent narrator that probably intrigued me to listen to the complete story - though I didn't care as much for this book as the others in this series.
No. The book was well written - just didn't care for the story. (A bit much on the sickening side as far as the villain and acts committed .)
A toss here. Normally the print version is tough to beat but Edward Herrmann has that ever so perfect voice that few (if any) narrators can match.
An uplifting story of challenges of such magnitude it's hard to imagine this man survived.I think this story is also insightful as to that WWII generation that served. What a great bunch that we so dearly miss now that many of them have passed.
What can I say, his narration has that tonal quality, inflection, and cadence that make the story so totally engrossing.
Yes. One of the best modern day non-fiction books I have had the pleasure to read or listen to.
Very insightful into the military actions in Afghanistan.
Mr. Porter nailed this one. He is one of the top narrators I have heard. This book was well written to begin with but I think this is one of the few books I can say I probably enjoyed listening to MORE than reading.
Finally, almost toward the end Reacher finally acts like, well, Reacher.
No- but I would recommend the print version of any other Reacher novel. Even in print, this book would have been a disappointment. Horrible narration.
The narrator was terrible. I almost quit couldn't finish this book (and I'm a huge Reacher fan) because this narrator made Reacher sound like a drunken idiot. Yes, I know his nose is broken but really!??
If not for the last couple of hours I would have answered absolutely not.
