I would not ask a friend to waste their time on this. It is a mish mash of different stories that seemingly do not have much in common. I expect Pendergast to be more organized, poised and much less emotional from all of his previous history.
They could have made the central character more like the Pendergast that we've come to know and love. Yes, some of the previous story lines have been huge and almost unbelievable, but this is like SuperPendergast who is out to save the world without a believable pretense. It is hard to write an accurate review without ruining the story for others who've not experienced the unreasonable and unbelievable occurrences that make this much less than it should have become.
As always, Mr. Auberjonois gives a fantastic performance. He is a joy to listen to and gives the book the most normal part of Pendergast that we have come to expect.
Yes, but it would be more of a supernatural movie than the thriller that the previous bbooks have given us.
The emotion and humanity is amazing.
Lettie was very well written and always seemed heartfelt and genuine.
The accents are very well placed for Mississippi and West Tennessee. A very well read piece of performance.
Near the end as the plot twisted I cried in sympathy to the heartbreak that happened to Seth many years ago along with his ultimate reaction and actions and why he committed his final act and where he did it.
A MUST listen.
I'd recommend anything he's ever penned because he never fails to capture my attention for every detail of the main characters life and life story.
Many of his other works are similar, but consistently great.
Bower is without a doubt the best reader that I've enjoyed. The second place goes to Jim Dale (Harry Potter) and that's a tough second place.
At the party when she appeared without Coo knowing that she'd be there.
Nana Moma, Brie, and of course Alex. They are consistently a good listen.
The terrorist was enjoyable because I've never met one, but this makes me feel like I have.
Emotion and empathy.
Every time he had to leave his family on this most special family day.
If you like Alex Cross, this is one to listen to. If you've never listened it's a good starting point.
I could imagine where Bluto, Otter and D-Day came from in the movie. It makes the movie even funnier knowing that where they came from was more outrageous than the motion picture.
Trying to understand how these guys graduated with all of the partying and chaos.
No, sometimes it was a little overwhelming and a bit gross.
A good listen and especially if you enjoyed the movie.
Very much so! I enjoyed the program and story from start to finish. It had very real characters that I sympathized with. The story line was believable and it was very easy to put yourself into his perspective.
The appearance of his long dead buddy talking to him throughout the book.
He gave the right amount of emotion to the entire program.
When he left his fathers house for the final confrontation. It was tender and touching and it was easy to get emotional guessing the end of the book.
A very very good listen. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys audiobooks.
YES! Nelson DeMille is a very consistently good listen.
John Cory is a very sarcastic, cynical and brainy character that make me laugh out loud in the car or wherever I'm listening to him.
Mr Brick is a very talented reader and performer. He reads for several authors and I've never been disappointed in one of his performances.
I didn't cry, but had several laughs at comments or thoughts by John and also Kate got in a few "zingers" in this book.
Again, another winner by Mr. DeMille and if I had to find fault in it, I would say that it's a touch long, but he had to do it to complete the story. I look forward to his next effort.
Without killing the story I'd reduce the first third of the book by more than half, add half to the middle, and cut the ca-ca about the mysterious woman from Virginia. Who is this Mata Hari?
It's kind of like Mr Child "phoned it in" Way too many Reacher "norms"...serious number skills, way out deductions and it was all for moot.
Sad to say, but it was the end because I was glad it was over.
I'm a big fan of Jack Reacher and was sorely disappointed at this attempt and I do mean "attempt"
I'll buy the next Jack Reacher of course, but after that if it's not better I won't buy it the day it's released, I'll read the reviews. Mr Child, please step back up to the plate.
