If you liked the first book, as I did, you'll enjoy this one more.
I do have to agree with a reviewer of the first book who likened the story to that of a comic book. Toward the end of the book the characters took on the persona of super heroes able to leap tall buildings. I my mind's eye I could see the comic book 'smash' and 'crack!' verbiage hovering over fantastically drawn characters. Both the protagonists and antagonists say things to each other that could only be taken seriously in a high action book like this one.
NONETHELESS, I loved this book and cannot wait for the 3rd! I like the main character immensely and am eager to see how he handles his next adventure.
There are some good ideas in there and its interesting, but the author continually restates her points over and over -- changing her words a little and using a different example. Enough is enough, say what you have to say and move on to the next topic. I'd say as much as 2/3rds of the book could be cut out.
This is a great book! If you listen to books in the car, as I do, you may be familiar with taking the long way home when you are listening to a good book. I have taken the long way home several times now and have even driven around the block an extra time to finish out a chapter, lol.
The plot line involves a long escalation of peaks and valleys. You get the impression of being on a rollercoaster. Weeks does a great job of making you love or hate his characters. His use of intrigue is well done and his action descriptions and cliff hangers can really pull you in (hence my extra millage on my car).
If you are considering this book, get it. You will not be disappointed.
As for the narrator, I thought he did a good job. I am not sure what an earlier reviewer was expecting.
