This might be the most unique book I have listened to and I have listened to a lot.. At first I came close to quitting because it sounded contrived. At the end I feel the author wrote a book so unique and so imaginative that the word genius comes to mind.
The narrator is very good however the production was somewhat lacking with pauses where there should not be.
Recommendation: If you choose to listen to this book, spend the time to follow the plot and characters. I did not at first and lost the thread to some of the story lines and characters.
This is the only book on tape that I plan on re listening to. Bravo Nick Harkaway it would interesting to meet you.
This series has been a wonderful experience. Great writing great characters great story and great narration. This book is every bit as good as the first three that I gave five stars too. A new Matthew Corbett would be purchased by me as soon as I saw it on audible.
I am however worried that the new book in the series is half the length of any of the first four and has many poor reviews. Not sure when I will listen to book five. Should it disappoint I would feel like I had lost a good friend.
Could not hold my attention. Some very light writing that would probably attract much younger audience. And I enjoy many YA books.
I love the Poke Rafferty books. Very well written and educational. Also good original story lines with great action. Would have given 5 stars if only the author did not draw out some of the background material which I decided to fast forward in several places without feeling I missed any of the plot. Victor Bevine is a great narrator.
Well written original with a lot of action. Definitely better written and developed than Divergent. Will purchase next in the series when it comes out in Jan.
This book captivated me from the start. When I recognize great writing and a great story I feel like I am using my spare time to good purpose. Set in 1699 this is an historic novel with graphic realism. Not knowing the author I did now know how the ending would work out. I now have the sequel ready to download.
This was a great novel meant for young adults or younger. Not as rich or intense as Harry Potter but an enjoyable read. I am an adult and would defiantly listen to others in the series.
Great story wonderfully written and narrated. One of my favorite fiction audio books. Action, mystery, well developed characters and many intrigues. Reginald Hill is a writer I had not heard from but I will be purchasing his other books.
If your a genius theoretical physicist you might understand most of this book. If you could not understand half of it like me you might still wish to listen and enjoy it. The science and math explanations were completely over my head. However listening to them was important. It made me realize how brilliant this man was in a time when computers were not in existent. This is a biography of one of the greatest individuals in history. Not just a mega genius but an approachable funny likeable man whose theories have changed and are still changing the world. Listen to this book!
Jim Harrison is one of the best writers I have ever listened to. Brown Dog will forever be in my memory as one of the most unique individuals ever created in literature. How a writer could create such a detailed three dimensional character as BD is nothing short of genius. This is also a wonderfully engaging book with many unique characters, both human and animal, and upstate Michigan rural adventure. Lots of trout fishing, hunting and bawdy sex. Listen to this book!!!
Tess Gerritsen is a very good writer. This story is well developed with nice twists. Tanya Eby narrates this book very well with nice separations of characters.
