Actually, I downloaded this book because I was caught up with all the titles I really wanted to listen to. Thought it would be the typical James Patterson... which was getting boring for me.
I was surprized though... the story was tight and told well. The plot was interesting and all and all a good listen.
...to the end of this book. I have over 500 books in my Audible Library, never have i had a Narrator that was this bad.
2 hours to much with historical information. Certainly, a little is needed to support the premise of the story. However, every marriage and offspring in English history is overkill.
Other than that a solid story line. Scott Brick always a solid read.
This book is sooooo technical, that it took a while for me to begin to grasp it. I started to give up on it in the middle and almost quit. Toward the very end it all came together.
There are many things happening at multiple levels. Religion, Politics,War, Human interaction comparisons to present and future and of course tech....It is one of those books that you will think about long after you are done.
Took a chance and really liked it. Thought the creative "tech" spin was very interesting and believable. A little "The Matrix" meets modern day mystery.
Definitely worth the credit.
... at least Patricia Cornwell's books are progressive... progressively they get worse !!! my goodness, not only is the a lame story line but the characters never become real. Mostly what turns me off though, is the "reader". Her dialects for Merino make him sound like a Jersey mobster...I think this will be my last attempt at Patricia's books... to many better story tellers out there to spend my time and money on.
Odd Thomas meets Dirty Harry then runs into Tom Clancy ! Come on... I'm a big fan of the Odd Thomas Series but I'm afraid the author has run out of story line. This one was lame...
Listening to this book is right up there with "root canal surgery" !!! I'm more than half way through and not sure I can make it the rest of the way without "pain killers" !!! Other than the story being really very shallow... the reader uses an accent for Moreno that sounds something like a cross between a Jersey Mobster and a Chicago Teamster. Come on Patricia ... get it together... other authors are passing you by with more intelligent stories and productions. It's just bad... steer clear of this one.
listening to this book was right up there with root canal surgery !
avoid this ... waist of time. no real plot [ dronong reader.
Probably one of the most enjoyable reads I've had this year. A little humor -A little mystery - A fresh story line - A little education...
A very good book...I give it an "A"
