I like this series. The best line, used over and over, is, "The guy who looks like Howard Hughes." Chortle...
I'm a Follett fan. Unreservedly, totally. I read his books avidly and now I'm listening to them...and the enjoyment continues...
So completely far fetched it was hard to believe a second book was written...much less a series of them.
If you like Catherine Coulter, you'll like this. The addition of Nicholas to the mix helps revive a stale storyline.
Average listen. Shouldn't be on your bucket list of listens, but if you have an extra credit, it isn't the worst book you can choose.
Couldn't make it through the second chapter. Many authors shouldn't narrate their books. This is one of them.
...but the narrator is still pretty bad. Here's a case where the narrator does the book no favors...but he's not bad enough to keep me from the rest of the series.
This is another example of the narration bringing a book up a notch. The story and characters are strong...Dan Stevens brought the characters to life.
Plotline good enough so I will listen to the next in the series. I did get a little tired of the author using, "He said," when the sentence was interrogative. Robert Parker did the same thing. Annoying.
I am now a font of (not so) useless information! Mr. Fahrenheit and Mr. Celsius and their respective thermometers...who knew? I'm ready for "Jeopardy".
Spy vs. Spy vs. Spy. Got a kick out of part of the story being set in the tiny town where I live currently. The descriptions were even accurate. Like the "toy" maker premise. Just wasn't enough to equal a more-than-mediocre read.
