The reader was awesome, even funny when the FBI agent sounds like WC Fields. Great characters, exhaustive historical preparation, and a very real ending.I applaud Stephen King for his interpretation of a historical conundrum. Bruce
Deke Simmons for being the real romantic.
He made the characters distinct, but he was most believable as Al.
If you could change an event in history, would you?
The discussion by the author at the end is very insightful. Bruce
This is a great next step from the Gray Man. Mark Greaney does not make his characters nice guys or heroes, they just are. It is generally believable, and the reader makes it more believable the way he speaks for each character. I think this is a better audio book than when read, because of the intensity of his voice. Very hard to stop listening, always another dilemma.
I had read early reviews criticizing the reader, I was pleasantly surprised. The reader represented the character, a reserved gamer, who outwardly shows little emotion. This is a terrific story and the reader helps you get into the character of "Cort".
The novel reads easily and it is impossible to separate the 15 different authors. To understand how this novel was constructed you need to listen to chapter 18. I enjoyed the twists in the plot, especially knowing each was the idea of another author. A primer for an emerging author.
