Steve Berry: Flat characters, impossible plots, questionable dialogue, everything the critics say is pretty much right. But, these books are entertaining and will get you through just about any road trip without too much thinking.
Mr. Berry may never win a Nobel for literature, but he writes a good, quick moving "shoot 'em up" mystery in the style of the old Shadow or Doc Savage dime novels.
I looked at my wife thirty minutes into this one and told her the rest of the plot until the end of the book and was actually right. If you have ever seen a "cop/buddy" movie or a 1980's spy movie, you have already heard this story. Not worth the time at all.
Perfect narration for a series that I can't get enough of. A polite, young fry cook who happens to see dead people and occasionally tries to save the world. What's not to love? Dean Koontz does dark humor surprisingly well.
An entertaining and different look into Oz. Makes me think a little bit about what would have happened if Harry Potter had grown up on the wrong side of the tracks.
I've never cared for the movie, so I tried not to like this when the wife put it on, but it sucked me in and took me along for a ride I enjoyed.
Only three stars since I don't care for the author's reading skills. They are passable here, but go rapidly downhill as the series progresses.
I enjoyed Wicked, the first installment in this series. This time around, however, the author should have hired a professional voice performer. The narration was so poorly done and irritating that I didn't make it through the first half. The reading carries a pace that reminds me of the jerky, halting attempts young children make when reading aloud in the classroom.
Read the book later and enjoyed the story much more without the author trying to stumble through it.
What can I say? Have loved the book since I was a kid. I travel quite a bit and thought that I would re-read this one Audible style on a recent trip. Good narration and performance of a great work. If you like Orwell, this is one that needs to be in your library.
Quirky and unique. A few of the stories, although good, weren't my "cup of tea" but that was more than made up for by the others that I have since gone back and listened to repeatedly. Good narration, too. All in all, well done.
