The narrator John Lee did it for me. Listening to the James Clavell books - including Shogun - where he narrates lead me to this book. John Lee is fantastic.
This book is a great read. A good story and good characters. An interesting idea and worrying if we ever get there!
A bit of detective and a bit of Sci Fi. I listen to a lot of Michael Connolly and Ian Rankin and love the underdog but clever detective - Dreyfus here is the same, but set in a a completely different scenario to what I usually read.
I really enjoyed it and could not stop.
What a fantastic author and character he has created. A definite looser in the magic world, but bulls it out when it matters. He has created an interesting secret world, an adult harry potter - perhaps not quite as refined - but with similarities.
I wish I could continue listening to the next in the series. I look longingly at the paper print versions waiting for them to come to audible.
So my recommendation is not only for this book, but to start with Book 1 and work your way through. Great stuff.
I really enjoyed this one, having read most. A lot of - could this really happen - definitely exists in the book given corporate greed these days. MC has been writing before his time with technology and vents that could happen in most of his books. A really good read.
I see all the bad reviews, but I thought the book was very good. I have enjoyed all of Michael Crichtons books and find him a fascinating read. Many of them turned into films of varying success, but I find the mixture of technology and story very compelling. I would recommend the book very much.
I read Shogun all those years ago, watched the mini-series and just picked it up again recently. This then lead me onto Noble House. What a story and so well narrated. John Lee has to be one of the best that I have heard so far.
I read the reviews here and noticed some about the narrator and the fact that it is a little boring. I also read some favourable reviews, so I went ahead. I didn't finish it - I did find it very long winded and did not like the narrator. I am sure some will like it given some of the reviews but can understand why some, like me, will really struggle with it.
