I've enjoyed the entire Cross series, but this one was so "off" the mark. I kept waiting for the story line to get better - but it never did and it just dragged on -- the sound effects were corny. I enjoy listening to books as entertainment or to escape from the real world - even for an hour or so. Pulling in the 'world domination' and terrorist scenario just came out of left field. Hoping that the next book is better ~
I am a Scott Brick fan, but for whatever reason -- the over dramatic style of his ready was awful! I have been enjoyed the Michael Koryta Lincoln Perry mystery; but I had to stop the audio book mid-way due to the narration....
I agree with the other reviewers when they said that Scott Brick distracted from the story... maybe someday I'll return to the book... right now, I'm Scott Bricked out!
No, it was not well spent. I was very disappointed in the narrator and the storyline. It is very unoriginal.
Awful imitation of females; monotone reading and just plain flat.
No, but I needed closure...
I agree with Karen -- the book went on forever and ever and ever.... agonizing details, etc.... great narrator, just could not get into the premise.
No, I won't be reading, er listening to any more Dan Brown.
I enjoyed the DaVinci Code and Angels and Demons so I was hopeful this would be as thrilling! *Yawn* - it was awful, I waiting for it to get exciting, after 3/4 of the way thru... I decided that I would just finish what I started. Narrator is excellent.
Wow! This was a major disappointment for James Grippando - I'm glad that I used a credit on this one..I actually contemplated asking for a refund of my credit. Talk about unoriginal and boring. Did he just read the papers; cut and paste into a "book/novel"... seriously? You have lost a fan Mr. Gripppando.
I'm new to David Bladacci and was blown away with Absolute Power. This was my second book and it was very, very disappointing. It was just bad the whole story line, plot -- so bland.
I've waited a long time for a Boliter (audio) book and am a HUGE Coben fan; but I, too, am struggling to listen to the remainder of the book. I agree with the others - no offense, Mr. Weber, but you may have wanted to listen to the previous Coben audiobooks to understand how to bring the Myron and others to life. The plot....ehhh - this is not one of Coben's best.....next! Seriously disappointed......
I also agree with some of the other reviewers -- I enjoyed Barbara Robsenblatt's voice in Scottoline’s “Daddy’s Girl”, so I purchased this book. Her performance was not the same -- all of her voice changes to fit the characters...and that sucking noise -- ugh.
As far as the story -- it just dragged on and on...I kept waiting for the storyline to 'grab me' and keep me interested ....never happened. The immaturity of the main character was very difficult to get past -- I don’t think I’ll be wasting any more time with this author.
I agree with the above reviewer. I was disappointed -- this story line was weak. I have (almost) read all of the Bosch stories also and was anticipating this release, but it just isn't up to par.
Kudos to narrator....
I really, really enjoyed this book. The narrator was superb. The story kept me glued to my car seat - :)
