A very interesting read covering a very interesting and tough time in America's history. The book gives you an inside view of the debate.
I really liked Angels and Demons, I tolerated The Da Vinci Code and I hated Inferno. I really wish Dan Brown would stop writing these books, I know I will stop listening.
A great story and a classic example of why you should NEVER allow the authors to read their own books! Tom almost put me to sleep every time he opened his mouth!
Rule 1: DO NOT LET THE AUTHOR NARRATE THE BOOK! He was horrible and I couldn't stand Robin and Fred and all the others who narrated this book.
Rule 2: NO ONE cares about the cutesy worm or button stories!
This could have been a great book, Tony has led an interesting life. I would have preferred more time spent on LinkExchange and less on the worms or the other childhood stories!
Will Patton seems a better narrator than actor. He does a great job bringing this story to life.
I still love Dexter BUT he is getting a little long in the tooth. Time to retire him but if there is another Dexter novel, please Jeff, let a professional reader like Nick Landrum read the next one! You are a great writer, very imaginative and witty but you aren't a great narrator.
....not that great. This is an OK listen but to be honest, these 'Scandi' thrillers seem a bit overrated to me. The story is hard to follow and the reader a bit too monotone.
I listen to 3-4 audio books a month and I have been listening to them for 10+ years, this is among the worst if not the WORST. Its a total waste of time. So, boring and almost self-indulgent that I would rather do just about anything else!
It was an OK book. After a while, all these books seem to sound the same. Corey is a wise ass and annoying after about 3 hours.
I have read or listened to many of James Patterson's books and like Michael Connelly, its time for some new characters and story-lines. The only thing I enjoy about his books now are the references to SF where I used to live.
