I not just would listen to Rain Storm again. I'm already doing it. I usually listen to a good audio books at least twice and this one is brilliant.
Delilah. I especially enjoyed the dialogues with Delilah. They are all very interesting and entertaining The meeting, get-together, with Delilah at the hotel Peninsula was the best.
I have listened to Brian Nishii's plerformances in Rain Fall. I think he gives in Rain Storm an even better performance. All the different voices are very well-defined.
Especially Dox’s voice perfectly fits his character.
I would have liked to listen to Rain Rain Storm in one sitting, but I just haven't got the time to do this. It is a thriller just as gripping as the other novels by Barry Eisler I have listened to so far. It’ll keep you on the edge of your seat. I usually listen to my audio books in my car on my way to and from work, that's about 40 min per day. Sometimes I stay in the car for a little longer because I just can't stop listening or take the CD with me to listen to it later in the house.
Rain Storm was my fifth novel by Barry Eisler. Before that I had listened to The Detachment , Inside Out, Rain Fall and Hard Rain. I was hooked after ‘The Detachment’ and bought all audio books by Barry Eisler I could get. Now I listen to my collection in the right sequence as they are all sequels.
I was again impressed by the description of the judo and martial arts scenes in this book. All scenes are described in detail which makes listening almost like watching a movie. This book too provides a lot of inside into surveillance techniques and surveillance detection.
The story line is perfect, there are some surprises and a very good ending.
Thriller Politics Assassin
Rain Fall is a very gripping political thriller about corruption in Japan. It’ll keep you on the edge of your seat. In this book the main character John Rain also gets nicely introduced. There is a lot of background information that helps you to understand why John Rain became who he is now - an assassin. The dialogues are very interesting and entertaining. All scenes are described in detail which makes listening almost like watching it as a movie. I was especially impressed by the description of the judo and martial arts scenes. Even laymen will get the picture. The book also provides a lot of insight into surveillance techniques and surveillance detection.
Berry Eisler is definitely one of the best thriller authors.
No extreme reactions, I just enjoyed myself.
