Ram Oren writes a very interesting an suspenseful book. The problem is that the book is narrated by someone who seems to be reading a book for children and even that is done in a very monotone and slow intonation.
I'm an avid audio book listener and this narrator is probably the worst narrator I've listen to in many years.
This true story is very somber and therefore it's not something for easy listening. The story is very well written and George Guidall is excellent (as always).
It's very original, interesting and even suspenseful but the author seems to be obsessed with his treatment of the "language" and the story gets to almost becoming an academic essay in the field of linguistics.
A great historic novel that is an accurate tale of the events that led to WWI and shaped the world during and after that terrible pointless war. Ken Follett is doing a great job of mixing history with fiction and keeping the reader mesmerized. The narrator John Lee is also very good.
Zvika Amit writes a good love story which is entangled in a complicated story of what seems to be hitech/industrial espionage and shenanigans. Barak Sagi, the Hebrew narrator is doing a very good job of narrating clearly and changing his voice and intonation.
As a fan of James Patterson, I was very disappointed from this book which was downright unbelievable and the characters were unconvincing. With a bit of effort he could have turned this into a children's book.
