After listening to "Tarzan" narrated by Jim Hill, and thoroughly enjoying it, this narration of another Burroughs book, "A Princess of Mars", made me wish it had also been narrated by Jim Hill instead of Peter Delloro. Mr Delloro's narration was histrionic with many mispronounced words. The narration distracted from the story. The story itself deserves 3-4 stars, but the narration is terrible.
Too much graphic violence, but a good description of a Navy SEAL's training.
Exciting story about a Mexican drug cartel plus a Middle East Taliban group
against the United States.
The first 2 books of the Maggie Hope Trilogy were very good, but the third book drags along, mired in the Nazi atrocities during WWII. The characters lose depth and the plot is predictable. Thank heavens for fast forward to get through this book.
The lack of an ending completely ruined this book. It stops abruptly with Jack Reacher dangling off the proverbial cliff. The reader is forced to buy the next book in the series or forever wonder what happens next.
It is a privilege to observe a little of the loving relationship between Herman Wouk and his wife, Betty Sarah Brown, in their life as writers. The story, although fictional, seems real-life and is quite funny and sweet. The book starts slowly and introduces the characters obliquely, then rapidly draws you in to learn what comes next. I loved this book.
No, not upbeat like most of Courtenay's books.
No more please. And Jessica is dead. Sniff.
This is a totally unrealistic interpretation of code breaking and math. There are irritating repetitive passages.
Most of it
Boring, philosophical blather, no plot or story. I was expecting Connolly or Grisham.
Couldn't finish the first half.
Reynard writes poorly and I would not waste my money on another book.
Morgan's performance was okay, but he should have been embarrassed to read this junk.
pot-boiler, cheap unrealistic sexual attitudes
don't waste your money on this
I kept hoping to get to the good part, after reading all the positive reviews, but finally gave up halfway through part 3. This book is terrible: gory, violent, histrionic, boring.
The other book we are listening to now is by Trollope, and we love it. I suspect other fans of Trollope will also not like this book by Martin, and vice versa.
Terrible recording; distorted, poor reading, repetition of whole chapters.
This is not up to the quality of Audible books.
It is a wonderful story and deserves a better reading.
