So this is my second Larsson 'girl' book. I wanted to try another since I had mixed emotions about the first. Once again, it took forever to get into the plot, but I stuck with it. I was grateful to finally have some movement about half way through like the first. This wasn't as interesting as the first, but I think just having something happen made me happy and willing to listen to the rest to see what happened. There are probably hours that could be eliminated that have to do with unrelated background - don't get me wrong I WANT background, think its absolutely necessary - but droning on and on about things that ultimately have nothing to do with anything just makes it seem that these things were added to increase the length of the book. I won't be venturing on to a third. Darn I really, really wanted to like this.
Not my favorite Nelsn DeMille but still entertaining. Its a little long - some book are long for a reason but there seemed to be parts that were 'stretched' for no reason. Still, I liked the book very much and recommend it.
This is a light-hearted murder mystery. Seem like an odd thing to say, but it is. Its fun to listen to and the characters are fun to. Want something just fun and entertaining - get this one.
The plot and idea behind the book is pretty good. There is too much fluff and dialogue that goes nowhere. If it added to character or plot development it would make sense but all the rambling doesn't. And boy what a weak ending. I couldn't wait for the last few hours to be over. I kept hoping it was going to do something - its Dean Koontz. Man, what happened?
This is my first Clive Cussler books - I know, where have I been. What a rush. So much action, great characters in just the right doses. Nothing is wasted in the story. Can't wait for my next one. Read Clive!
I was really looking forward to this book. Maybe I listened to too much hype about it, but it didn't live up to the expectation. Fairly weak plot, but boy can he write some really, really graphic torture passages. Yuck. You can write this terrorism and torture stuff without the gritty details and leave some of it to our imaginations. So, if you like that sort of stuff you'll love this.
...then this is the book for you. It was a good listen - maybe a bit too much past memoirs of Name, but it was educational. All in all I did enjoy the book and would recommend.
I'm a HUGE Reacher fan - aren't we all. But, this story barely had a plot and LOTS of very discriptive torture parts. There were s couple parts that I had to fast forward through and I'm pretty accepting if part of the story. OK this was part of the story to an extent - but, WAY overboard. He must have had a deadline and thrown this together and it shows. Bummer.
The excerpt didn't grab me - maybe it was the narrator? Not really. Just not written in an interesting enough way to get me interested.
Another great Koontz scary improbability - or is it? Koontz is a master at building tension to a point you think you can't listen any more. I know from past experiences that I can't listen to these books before I go to sleep - LOL I recommend this book. What fun!
I never thought I'd get into a series about magic. What a surprise! This is book two and I guess I'm hooked. The 'magic' is incorporated into a good story so it just seems so natural - and, they're really good stories. I encourage all to start the series to have a good time.
