John Lee made the story even better with his narration. He is one of the best with all his accents, but he does need to work on the American accent. I had to laugh when he tried the female New York accent. Yikes.
The story is so well written and I am not much of a WWII buff, but the way Ken Follet tells the story with these characters, it makes you want to read more.
He brings to life this horrible time of our history.
I give this 5 stars in every way. The Fall of The Giants is a must listen first which I loved also. Cant' wait for the next one to follow.
I loved the storyline and bought this right away after seeing some of the good reviews.
After listening to the first third of the book, it went downhill and lost the excitement of the storyline. It began to get boring and Jake's actions began to get outrageous and too far fetched. He ran into too many different people in the story and I began to just lose interest in who was who as he tried to find his lost love. I finished it, but it was one of those, come on and finish this story ending. The ending was awful and left you very unsatisfied. I could have written a better ending and that's pushing it.
Love Scott Brick and he couldn't save it either.
I read a lot of the reviews and figured this one would be a good story.
The narration was ok but a little too harsh of a voice to really sit back and enjoy.
She didn't do a great job on the different characters.
The romance between Eve and Rourke was so cold. No heat at all. J.D. Robb needs to take lessons from Maya Banks and Nora Roberts.
The murder mystery was just ok. It could have been more gripping through out the book.
The last third of the book was very good with a great ending. I almost quit listening but just figured I had to finish and glad I did.
This was my first Sandra Brown book and I will purchase another one very soon. The story was gripping and you find yourself gritting your teeth in fury over what happens to Jade in High School. Through the rest of the story, which is so well written, you get so involved and wrapped up waiting to hear the next saga she goes through in her young adult life. I loved the ending and how she gets back at those who violated her.
The only bad thing I can say about this book is the very last 4 minutes where she goes back somewhere, I won't spoil it, and tries to erase a bad memory. Very stupid move and the only unrealistic thing in the book. But that didn't weigh on the story much at all.
I haven't read many romance novels but this was wonderful. It was a little bit like Fifty Shades (with much better romance) meets Braveheart. I can't wait to read Book 2 of the series. I do wish they would take that picture off the front cover. It's nothing like I would have pictured either of them.
Listen to this, sit back and enjoy.
I'm a dog lover and heard that this story was a good one. It starts out as a fun listen and the longer I listened, I was so captivated by Enzo and his thinking. He's so funny. I had an hour left to end this book so I went to the gym thinking I would be able to finish it there. I almost had to leave and go to my car since the ending was so gripping and sweet. I teared up so bad and almost broke down. Thankfully I had my towel to hide my face and wipe my tears. This was a wonderful story.
The plot, ending and the second half of this story was really great. It was hard to get through the first half of this story. It was hard to keep my interest going. I stuck with it and it was worth it. The narrator was ok, but his rhythm was more like a newscaster telling of a crime that just took place. I'll try another Harlan Coben book and hope it's better.
Glad I got this one on sale. It was boring, slow, and it didn't hold my interest. I skipped through this one in about an hour.
I can't wait to start the 3rd Book in this series. I'm hooked on Gerard Doyle's narration. I could listen to him all day. Somehow I can't listen to an English accent, but his English and mainly the Irish accent is wonderful and fun to listen too.
Adrian McKinty can write a story like no other. The characters in this series are so full of personality both good and bad. I love Michael, the main character. Following him and all the trouble he gets into is such a great ride. Can't recommend this one highly enough.
I wasn't sure why so many reviews gave this 5 stars. I liked the story and the narration was great. It had many slow parts when this character was trying to find who did this to him. I got a little lost at times and lost interest. The first part of this book was fantastic and then it lost me and the end was great again. So it was a good listen. Just not 5 stars.
I loved listening to Gerard Doyle in "The Falling Glass" so I had to try one more book by Andrian McKinty. It was really a great listen and the story was a bit slow at times but Gerard Doyle made up for any of the slow parts in this story. I loved the ending and can't wait to listen to this 2nd sequel in line. I loved to root for the bad guy, but he wasn't that bad and was really a tough character which I liked a lot.
