This is an intelligent story about intelligence. A classic.
The plot moved along nicely with no fluff to fill the pages.
David Rintoui has a great voice and uses it well. This is the first book I heard him read but it won't be the last.
I would absolutely recommend this book to friends.
Like real life, not every outcome of every event is perfect which makes this story more real and more suspenseful.
The narrator did great with all the characters.
The rescue and lack of communication between the rescuer and the rescued at the start is the hook that made me interested.
As an insomniac I started listening to audiobooks as an alternative to simply staring at a dark ceiling. This book should be near the bottom of my favorites for keeping me up even longer.
The plot was great but it was the events that really happened (some pretty shocking) and the author's and narrator's ability to make you feel as if you're in the dark waiting for a knife in the back that kept my attention.
Mr. Wolf did a fantastic job with all the characters even though a man doing a woman's voice doesn't work too well but there was instance when he did a female voice that sent shivers up my spine. NO SPOILER! As much as I wanted to seek him out and choke him for that I understand that is what he is paid for.
Of course not. I wanted to go to sleep but this was a much more entertaining version of counting sheep. If anyone is looking for a nodder, this ain't it.
Anyone interested in history and likes a good mystery can appreciate this book.
I don't know if the King is in the altogether as naked as the day that he was born. Instead his most finely tailored suit went out for a walk without him. I think it was the janitor wearing it. I love history and I love Florence also but I thought I was buying a suspense novel. This was little more than a travel guide with a bit of history and no pictures. There was some kind of story in it I think but it wasn't much of one. I won't spoil the end for anyone but the idea of what the danger is fits in well with recent news. Unfortunately, it seemed that Mr. Brown had a deadline to meet or something because the the plot could have been much more realistic and with much more plausible twists. One great thing about this book (and all of his books) is that it makes my childlike curiosity run rampant. I am going to read a book I never had an interest in, Dante's Inferno (I've had the CDs on my bookshelf for a couple of years). I haven't read "Digital Fortress" yet either (also on my shelf) but I certainly will. Mr. Michael did a great job with what he was handed. Gotta see what else he did.
