Story was OK, narration good but not up to par for Morrell. I've been a fan since the "Brotherhood" books, "Rambo" and on so not only do I love his reads, I'm always rooting for and expecting the best. For me, this one wasn't quite up to Morrell standards.
I enjoyed the book but there were a couple of stretches. That however, is true of plenty of authors. I still enjoyed the book but the thing that caught my attention was Armand Schultz. He has a wonderful range. I was so caught up in the story until I realized how authentic he sounded. Never lost the story line but enjoyed it more once I realized what I was missing.
Harlan Coben is one of my favorites between serious to Myron Bolitar. I enjoyed it so much I had a time with the transition to my next book. But I imagine if you listen a great deal you'll know exactly what I mean. For me, this was one of those stories I wanted to go on and on.
Sometimes time seems to stretch while waiting for favorite authors to publish the next book. So this gives us another character to follow which is great in my opinion.
I like Thor for the most part anyway but thoroughly enjoyed this one. Loved the Athena Team and hope they'll show up again. Also enjoyed the two stories merge into one. And since this isn't a book report I'll just say, great listen.
The last several Sandford books I've read and listened to have been a disappointment to me. This one sounds like someone lit a fire under Sandford and it's the best I've heard from him in a while. I enjoy the Virgil Flowers books, some more than others of course but they just don't have the Davenport kick. Hope this lasts.
Not the best Crais book I've listened to but I didn't put it down. Had to get into this one before I actually enjoyed it but still thought the ending was a bit of a let-down. First book I've read with the bomb focus and that part I found interesting.
Enjoyable, not a bad book.
I've listened to all the Walt Longmire books and I've seen the TV series. The TV series just didn't cut it for me. Maybe it would have been better had I not heard George Guidall but The Cheyenne Nation played football and I'm under the impression that his character is a large man. And who could give a fair depiction of Vic on TV.
Like all the rest, I loved it.
Koontz can be so many things and for some reason I put the "Odd" series aside. Finally had a Netflix night and watched the first. Movies are seldom as good as the book in my experience but glad I did. Moved right on to Brother Odd and thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't know that I would have followed through had I not seen the movie. Gave me a better idea of the environment.
Really enjoyed this. Got my attention and I had my earphones with me until I finished. Always enjoy good sarcasm and the chemistry with the duo made the book. I'm looking for Book 2. Would definitely recommend it.
When I got into this book all I could think of was how long before I gave up. Took about 30 or 45 minutes.
But when I got to thinking about the story line I realized it wasn't so bad, not up to the usual Lutz book but not a total dog. As much as I hate to berate a narrator, I think that's what makes the book such a downer. Lutz must have liked Bob Walter so maybe I should deduct a point. I'm sure Mr. Walter does a fine job with other books but for me, a total zip!
I saw some of the reviews, none good, but pig headed as I am still gave it a try since how bad could Lutz be?
I'd say spend your credit elsewhere.
