Aggghhh! This is the most difficult listen I've had. The reader painfully misuses punctuation by inserting pauses after every 3-4 words. Emphasis falls in all the wrong places which is very distracting. I can only figure the reader is as bored as I am by the book and is trying to read excitment into it. I've had a hard time keeping the many characters straight and now, 1 1/2 hours from the end, I don't really care to go on. The synopsis sounded so promising, but turns out it was much better than the book itself. Waste of time.
I really enjoyed this story which was actually a story within a story. Well written and captivating. Very easy to listen to. I thought that the reader did a superb job.
Demille does it again. The story is plausible, compelling, and fun. The characters are very likable. Scott Brick did a teriffic job in the reading and made it all the more enjoyable. I liked the twists and turns throughout the storyline and like many other reviewers, found the ending a shocker. Hey, thats life. I'd highly recommend it.
I don't know which was better; the story or the reading. I'm glad I listened to this one instead of reading the book. The full cast made it a teriffic experience. The story was genuine and very moving. You won't be disappointed -
I really liked this story. I've always been a fan of Sherlock and this was a nice twist to the usual tale. It was a good mystery and the reader did a fine job. I would definately recommend it.
Thoroughly enjoyable! Where does he come up with this stuff!?! If you like stories with lots of twists and turns, and lots of historical facts, you'll love this one. I think it might even be better than The Davinci Code which I couldn't put down. A terrific romp!
I've always been interested in the life of Franklin and thought this was a great general biography. I learned a lot listening to it. The reader was very easy and enjoyable to listen to.
I really enjoyed listening to this book and had trouble shutting it off. The plot was fun and open minded and the mystery unraveled nicely. There were twists and turns throughout, which I always find enjoyable. I found the historical references very interesting and thought provoking (I was compelled to look some of them up to see if they were accurate.) The reader, Paul Michel, is excellent. His ability to animate the personalities made the whole experience of this story even better. I was sorry to have it end. I would definately recommend it -- get the unabridged as I did, I can't imagine leaving out the fun facts which I'm sure got cut in the abridged version.
