Book 1 was great, the next 2 must have been more like after thoughts
No. I like these types of stories. Patriots was a great listen.
The reason I bought this series is because of Phil Gigante work in Second World. He is a master. I look for narrator as well as story line
Book 1 was out standing. The rest must have been a contract obligation
Over did the the religion aspect. He talks about praying just before double tapping targets and letting them bleed out. There is alot of raping and killing but not to many potty mouths. Stay with book 1
Book 1 or part 1 is just what the summary implies, ex-seal returning to college after years with the teams, that seemed to be something that could hold my attention. It did not disappoint, I was looking forward to listening every time I had to stop.
John Ringo did an excellent job, accents, female voices and gruff voices, no fault there.
Near the end of book 1 when the seals come in and rescue the girls and the Chief explains that "with the exception of Ramos, we are not gay" that cracked me up.
Just was excited that there was going to be more, book 2 was coming up
Book 2 or part 2 was a total let down, it continued on from the last chapter, I think that it should have been labeled under romance. I made it to the part where Mike is having sex with underage girls and they were discussing "safe" bondage words.... pause.... delete.
You have to keep my attention during an audio book, if I wanted a Lifetime movie with softcore porn I would purchase it. The book may have gotten better but smut is still smut, and seals should not be portrayed as rapists
This book reminded me of 2 things, old time radio and a made for tv movie that went to dvd. It consist of a full cast, which I like, but it did not have a narrator. There are breaks with music and it prolongs the book.
I am going to take a break from listening to the full cast type, it was entertaining in some areas but in others it was annoying.
Each chapter ends and then there is music signaling a new chapter, plus the say the title of the book each time. Also I did not realize that this was a series made for radio, like community theater, and formed into a book.
Yes, and it sounds like it was a radio series to begin with.
There was to much music and scene ending drama music for a book. I found myself thinking that they seem to be trying to fill in or add on situations that really are dulling the book, then when in the final stage of the story it just ends, so I was not too happy with that.
I like the full cast and different voices for each character, and this book was enjoyable in parts and dull in others, exciting and challenging, but over all it was mediocre.
I drive a truck so reading and driving tends to upset people. I found this book awesome.
Buck steals the show with is great insults and one liners
Luke did a great job in all characters, but Buck gets my nod. Marty of course is the main character and everyone that was introduced had a different voice, even woman and children had their own voice. A command performance.
Mr. Buck Weaver licensed bounty hunter. Because I would be able to experience the Buck Weaver experience which is different for guys then it is for women.
This book is about the Big One, the earthquake all Californians are concerned about, and that is exactly what the summary said it would be and the 30 mile walk there after.
Luke Daniels gives a performance not just a narrator, from the cocky presents of Buck to the snotty TV executive Marty to any character introduced. His reading placed images of each person speaking. A+++
The reader had a New York accent, but that is all that made his reading bearable
A premature ejaculating cop? This was not in the summary, I kept waiting to get hooked into the story, just when I thought things were getting normal, I was wrong. The main character came across as disturb from the beginning not at all what the summary advised.
Steady, monotone, boring
I would at least give Jack a couple of feathers in his hat on how this type of person made detective in the NYPD. nope just started off as him being a nut job from pressing play.
Simply put, this book sucks, I made it to chapter 12, almost 2 hours of listening, nothing makes sense and the main character is a premature ejaculating weirdo who the author lets you know that he sleeps naked way to many times. A detective that almost communicates with his victims sounds cool but this book is pure trash..... no no no run away run away
I like these type of survival stories, after the big one or a nuke, what the country might be like after a devastating event.
It was a good listen, there were times I was really enjoying it and then there were some low points but I guess that is what the author intended so I would keep listening.
I have not, but he did a pretty good job, male and female voices were noticeable along with accents and children.
No, it was a steady listen, I was getting ready for an emotional ending but it did not come
There were times when I felt there was to much details and then there were times I felt there was not enough details.
I was really hooked after the first book, so I bought the next 5 books right away, I am glad I did not buy all of them.
I was really enjoying the first 2 books, but after the burning bridge things seemed to go downhill, I was expecting more, and was getting less,
Will, of course, however I also liked Halt's sense of humor and the way he made his presence felt.
I would have cut John Buttle, his character was needed, but there were times when I thought he was not needed.
The series starts out awesome, I like the progression of the characters, but it was the progression of the characters that I was enjoying the most, turning Will into a junkie really made the series take a nose dive, I would not expect that type of situation, a potion or spell but not a narcotic.
The summary sounded ok, however the storyline was dull and boring, I was waiting to get hooked but nothing really was happening.
I liked the summary and thought it would be more enjoyable, but a long story just to get to the basics of the book was taking to long and I drive a truck so it was not like I was being distracted.
He has the same voice for all the characters, male or female, I could tell when someone was on a phone, that was cool, but the same voice for everyone is not a performance it is a reader.
I can not say that cutting anyone would have improved this book
I enjoy a good listen, but when I am turning the book off because listening to music would be more enjoyable, then it is time to delete.
I always purchase the unabridged version, so I am assuming there is no difference.
The plot was good, I found myself listening to it on headphones when I was unable to use the radio speakers, I would find reasons to listen.
The way he brought each character to life, when I am able to know who is speaking without having to be told who said what, then that is a good performance. The pauses and inflections in speech patterns, along with that Minnesota accent...yeah you betcha.
No extreme reactions, there were parts that made me laugh, great one liners and some good old fashion wise cracks.
Very enjoyable, there were times I found myself not wanting to turn it off, which is exactly why I listen.
Maybe staying with one storyline, maybe making some sort of sense, the summary is different then the actual main body, there is no hope to make it a 4 or 5.
He could have read a different book. the performance was fine, I enjoy the English accent.
It was the story and not the narrator.
I wasn't able to follow the book, I listened to first part and was so confused I ended up deleting it from my library. This book should be cut.
I wasn't able to follow the story line because it kept jumping from story to story, not chapter to chapter, it went from the timeline to timeline as well, at one point there was even a sea monster involved, it was horrible, I did not even finish the book it was so bad, I drive a truck and listening to the wind blow through a half opened window was more relaxing then this pile of crap. AVOID
The right ending might could have brought it up to a 3 or 4, but the story kept repeating itself.
Each character voice was unique and I was able to tell who was speaking from his performance.
The story line grabbed my attention, and the detail in the characters backgrounds was good.
I drive a truck, and a good book can make a long drive seem short, however with this book I found myself turning it off and on, I had books that I was sad having reached my destination too soon, this was not one of them.
