The story moved pretty quickly and kept me interested and engaged. I enjoyed the plot twists that Card introduced throughout. It was definitely not the storyline I was anticipating.
The constant whining by one or more of the characters got on my nerves and detracted from the pace of the story, but I suppose it served to develop the characters.
I did not like that the narrators switched based on who's perspective we were hearing the story from. I understand why the story was produced this way, but it was a little annoying. That said, it didn't annoy me NEARLY as much as it did with the first book.
There were definitely times when I did not want to put this down. Especially when they were dealing with the computers and expendibles. The story definitely kept me interested and I will be purchasing the next book when it is completed.
This story, while highly unbelievable, was incredibly entertaining. I thought the characters were interesting and I was rooting for their triumph (the good ones, anyway). I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen next.
I was disappointed in what felt like a cliffhanger at the end of the story, so I'm guessing there are more stories out there to follow this one.
This was another great thriller from DeMille. From the opening of the story, I was hooked, and it definitely did not let me down. I thought the characters were fantastic and the pace of the story kept me listening for more. I happened to start watching the new FX show "The Americans" as I was in the middle of this book, which really struck me as ironic and made me wonder if there really could be Russian spies in America posing as Americans.
Great story - scarily believable!
Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators. He does fantastic accents and voices and always brings me into whatever story I'm listening to.
I don't regret the time I spent on this book, however I don't feel it lived up to the other John Corey books. The plot didn't progress as quickly and it lacked much of the suspense that his other books have. That said, it was still an enjoyable book and if another John Corey book comes out, I will likely purchase that book as well.
I don't think the performance of Scott Brick had anything to do with the slow-ness of the story - he is still one of my favorite narrators.
I have really come to appreciate the storytelling style of Preston & Child. This is another great story from them and it kept me on the edge of my seat nearly from the beginning of the story. I would recommend this story to anyone who enjoys a good, solid suspense story.
