I have read most of James Rollins books and that is why I got this one but after listening to the first chapter of the protracted killing of a child, in light of the sadness I feel over last months mass murder of children I just knew I could not listen to any more of this book.
Wrong book at wrong time I guess
Anger and Sadness at it's start so the rest of the book might be just fine but I will never know.
I did not read the print version but loved listening to Anne read her own book.
I am the same age as Anne so I could really relate to all the history of her life time.
Hey she sounds like her songs so if you are a fan what could be better plus there are a few bits of them throughout the book.
I would not make a movie of this book since she is alive and well and there is no actress that can be her....not even her daughter who is her own person.
What a wonderful job Brandon Sanderson did to end the Wheel of Time books. Couldn't be any better. He really managed to bring it all together.
Matt, his character is so much fun.
The best narrators period.
So many characters have to die in the last battle I mourned each one of them.
Even though this book was 41 hours long I did not wish it to end.
If there is a sequel I would read it but I hated the way it ended. Read like a movie and the tense moments were dragged out to long but over all ok.
No one I know
He was not the problem
Anger, disappointment, stereo type of a good womans possible actions.
Hate the male character Rook he is arrogant conceited jerk. And the female character is portrayed as caring about this person...that is demeaning and so full of ........
Waste of time and money to have gotten this series
If you had let the Rook character out of these books the stories would be just fine. What an arrogant A...hole. No woman would really let this jerk touch her..... I suppose because this is a male author he can make the woman do anything.......but nothing about this author's book is realistic.
All those with Rook in them
If you have read the whole series then you will love this one just as much or more.
This book finally moved the story along quite a bit after all the set up in the last book.
I listened to all three parts in two days and most of the time could follow who was who.
I thought with this book being another "younger days" prequel so to speak it might not be all that good but I was wrong. It is a continuation of American Assassin and so "all" the characters from the first ten books are of course younger which gives room for more overall personality expansion.
It has to be difficult to write these kinds of books since technology expanded so quickly in the last twenty years it is hard to remember what was available when even though there are no dates given.
If I were reading this series for the first time I would start with the last two books and there will probably be at least a third considering the way this one ended.
Of course this is all pure fantasy like comic book hero's, in the real world I doubt we have such a man nor would I actually want one. Lyn
