The incredibly wonderful description of the characters and their thoughts ideas and values. Coupled with the fantastic narration by Dennis Boutsikaris, I found myslef laughing, shouting exclaiming and sometimes even on the verge of tears.
The long span of time we follow the characters (at least Leo) and the detailed description of each character. Also the way the whole story was put together finally. Although it seemed some of it towards the end was a stretch, and kind of rushed and anticlimactic, but still it was a work of art.
This is a tough question.He performs each character so convincingly I cant really say but I would say Leo Dimidov because he had a large amount of dialogue.
Yes. When Leo was on the phone with Raissa and she said Elena was behaving strangely and she didnt know what to do. I was moved by Leo taking the huge risk telling Raissa "Dont allow her to attend the concert". He followed his instincts even when he could not explain why he felt how he felt. It seemed like a pivotal part of the story, which if Raissa had done what he said would have changed the rest of their lives.
Many reviewers complain of The Secret Speech and Agent 6 being disappointing after Child 44. You have to keep in mind, Child 44 is just such an amazing book, its a tough act to follow. Its hard to make it any better than that. I mean if you combined all 3 books and made them one book, you would still have one huge amazing novel. Also the amount of research TRS did was impressive.
No I wouldn't, because a book has to be exceedingly outstanding or has to move me deeply for me to re read or re listen, especially since there are so many good books out there. that being said, this is a very very good book!!
Edge of my seat...no. But it did wax and wane continuously through the book which is a good thing. It didn't have a totally predictable end. Some parts were a little far fetched but I don't want to include any spoilers so...see for yourself.
He has that relaxed dude like voice I would expect from Flowers.
Yes but that is never possible for me.
I didn't like the series that much in the beginning but its growing on me. Once you just get your mindset to accept, Virgil Flowers is not Lucas Davenport then it becomes ok. Also I like how the characters from the Prey series have cameos in this series to. And what about that Ma Noble???!!!
The amazing Rob Shapiro. He narrates this and all the other books in the series perfectly. He is so......Victor!!
The end..... Don't want to spoil it for anyone but it was enjoyable. Just when you think the book is over Tom Wood throws us another bone. Lol.
Yes!! This is just as good as the other books he narrated. The story was not as great and Wood kind of glossed over some parts making it less believable but overall it was an amazing book with a great performance.
Yes!!! But my girlfriend wouldn't let me. Lol!!! She says I disconnect from her when Im listening to it.
Yes. More, more, more,more,more !!!!!
No. I mean Iam a longtime fan of EJD, but this is not his best work. And the narrators (especially Zoe Bell) just killed the book for me.
No No No. Its not well written. Seems like an unfinished or rushed project. Now his other book about an assassin was just incredibly good. I mean all 3 were. But this is really mediocre.
Everthing about Zoe's. She couldn't change her voice much so it was hard to know who was talking. Dominic was not bad.
I wasted a credit! Im sorry to say it but its the truth.
Its a really good book and a really good series. Maberry spins a really great tale and his research is excellent. I love how he makes the unbelievable believable.
The way it is connected to previous books in the series.
Yes but Ray Porter made an unforgivable mistake. The narrator had obviously read the book before hand, and knew the story. In one sentence he unwittingly revealed one of the biggest punchlines of the book ahead of time by inserting the name of the villain that was supposed to be secret until a later time. Im certain this was a mistake but it really killed the intrigue for me and made the book much less enjoyable.
Dont Trust Anybody
Yes. Ray Porter needs to re narrate the book otherwise the ratings will go down due to the screw up.
It is an excellent story from an excellent series.
Kiev......It was me!!!! Ive been wanting to hear about Kiev since the firt Gray man novel. Greany does an amazing job of peaking your curiosity.Now all I need to know id=s why the original SOS notice was put out on Gentry!!
Jay Synder lives the story. He has a way of not just giving each individual a personality and voice, but really making you feel the individuals emotions. Dead eye is such a good villain, because hes such an asshole and an unlikeable character. Synder does an incredible job of making you hate him!!Als makes a believable hero out of Gentry. He's superman but hes also flawed, and also gets lucky.
Tell me about Kiev.....!!!!
