Swift does a masterful job of story telling, interweaving stories and time shifts seamlessly and effortlessly. The narration is first rate. This is story telling at its best. Very enjoyable.
This was a well crafted tale with an excellent narrator. The writing (narrative) was trite -- almost amateurish. Literary fiction it ain't. Still worth reading...
A fun read despite a plotline "black hole" midway through. Very similar to earlier works, and very well read by Michael Beck (once again).
This is a good story but the writing is amatuerysh. Cliches bump into malaprops in a narrative that became painful for the narrator. Despite its shortcomings, its an okay listen.
This story is packed with adventure and intrigue, but not told as well as it could have been. The Protector by David Morrell is a similar type story told EXTREMELY well. I don't know how badly the abridgement affected the writing. Who knows, it may have IMPROVED it!
Still worth reading.
A fairly interesting storyline is bogged down by an insipid "romance" that Kellerman needed to fill in between plot points. He is not a good romance writer. In his past books, he spared us with only brief interludes with Robin etal. Not so here!
Also missing was his wit and crisp descriptives of people and places. In its stead, the unexpected infusion of words tha even Bill Buckley doesn't use. Apparently, Kellerman got one of those "Learn A Word a Day" desk calendars.
Back to Milo and Alex!
Skip this one!
The best thrillker in many years! Morrell puts you in his car and heads down and road filled with trwists and turns. He never leaves the road, and he never slows down. Fantastic!
