It's either the reader or the recording or both--I tend to think it's the reader however. It's hard to listen to the story for any length of time as the
Phil Gigante has narrated
No, but that's based on the narrator of this one.
I put off making this review since I really don't like to say anything bad about people--least in a way it could affect their livelihood or to embarrass them, but after trying to listen to yet another short session of Patrick Lawlor, I decided I needed to vent my frustration.
I never like to read or listen or watch books, stories or movies a second time so no
All really good
Excellent performance--spectacular actually.
Future readers--get past the first gory scene and it will be worth it--I wasn't sure what I had gotten into but soon got caught up in it.
Make it more believable. Dan Brown tries too hard to duplicate his earlier books--needs to move on.
Probably not unless reviewers said not a rehash of Angels&Demons. I was a big fan of Dan Brown but he needs to break the mold.
nope--toss up between driving 7 hours down I5 in silence or listening
Only since I was driving
hard to say, really
not really--too emotional
not at all
Not David Morell's usual!
Absolutely--I'd change the title which is misleading--this is NOT a Kane & Able Book3--any fans of Archer's knows the 2 Kane & Able books and this is not a continuation or remotely related. Was this just a cheap ploy to gain readership? Shame on you. I'd change the reader--this is not a book to be read by a woman--it sounds like a kids fairytale and you can't take the plot seriously. She performed well but this book should be read by a man--sorry--not a chauvinist, but it's a fact.
I've read and listened to all of his books--this would be on the low end
She performed well but the type of book she should be reading. Her impressions of males were terrible. If you are going to have a woman read this type of book, then have them just read it straight out and not try to imitate a deeper male voice.
It is if you are on a long drive and nothing else to do. Actually the story line was good, but Archer has fallen into the recent trend of building in stupidity on the part of the heros to allow them extra danger and adventure. My God, what kind of FBI agent keeps saying to himself I've seen that guy in the rear view mirror without realizing he's being tailed! Or what kind of FBI agents are stupid enough to recognize someone different tailing the hero, besides themselves on a top secret assignment without checking it out--give me a break.Again, I'm a big fan of Jeffery Archer--at least the way he used to write books.
Terrible reader. The actual narration was "ok" but when character voices were done, the worse I've ever heard. It spoils the story and I'll never buy another Audible book using Terry Ross.
Also, While the story line was interesting, there were too many Unfunny but trying to be cute sexual comments--sounded childish and took away from the ability to take the book seriously.
Besides get a better reader, there were too many Unfunny but trying to be cute sexual comments--sounded childish and took away from the ability to take the book seriously.
It was terrible!! Bad character voices--I'll never get another where Terry Rose is the Narrator.
Anger in that I paid for the book and felt compelled to finish it, but then I was driving Interstate 5 and little alternatives.
I don't usually trash a book, but reading a BAD job.
The story line was unbelievable, the manufactured drama of music and sound affects distracting and annoying and too preachy. I'm sorry, but I've listened to all of his books up until now and Cross Country has made me leery of buying any more.
Great Book, great reader--what more could you want? Just enough of the supernatural not to be preachy or phony.
I'm a fan of Dean Koontz so half way through this I had to go back and check to see if possibly it had been ghosted by another author. If you were looking for an uplifting, spiritual dog book, this might be ok, but it's title should be something akin to "Lassie Come Home" and not listed as a thriller or mystery. It was too preachy and simply so unbelievable to be distracting. Also, a bad reading--the reader did not handle the male characters at all well to the point of distraction. I would have quick half-way through, but against my nature and I was curious, but didn't enjoy the book at all.
One of the few really "stand out" books I've read or listened to for quite a while. Well written and just as important in this context, WELL READ--excellent reader. I'd recommend this book highly.
