This is my third book by Robert McCammon and the second in the Matthew Corbett series. I liked Matthew in the first of the series and was very pleasantly surprised to find I like him even more in this book. The "good" characters are likeable and the "bad guys" are very bad, indeed, and the plot was engrossing. The history is interesting, there are gruesome crimes, sword fights, plenty of action, wonderful development of relationships with the other characters and thankfully, none of the "gross" language that is so common today. The ending insures I will be listening to the third in this series.
The narration is first class and only adds to the enjoyment.
I highly recommend this series.
I never expected to be so overwhelmed. I loved everything about this book. I will not be forgetting the title, the plot, or the characters anytime soon! If you like wilderness stories, do not miss this.
The characters are unique, interesting and likeable. The mystery is in the development of the story which I really appreciate. Have loved every single book!
Interesting storyline about teenagers coming to term with life and just how far parents should go to protect them. Really liked the main characters and the realistic emotions faced by them and their families.
Absolutely loved this story. The characters are fun, loyal, outrageous and endearing. I will definitely want more of this series.
The story is up to Nesbo's standards, but the narrator keeps getting in the way. I was hoping I could adjust, and I did, but definitely detracted from my enjoyment.
This should be the guide for great storytelling novels! Understandable that this was the basis for Tarzan and Indiana Jones. Absorbing from first sentence to last and action aplenty!
Maybe it's because the previous books were so outstanding, but for whatever the reason, I was really disappointed in Book 5 of the series. I was expecting the usual instant connection with storyline and characters only to wait, wait and wait, and it never happened.
Time and again I was tempted to just stop listening, but persisted thinking surely the magic would happen, but it did not. Hope the next book is back to the usual standards.
Huge thank you to Audible to for bringing this novel to my attention. Like many of my generation, I read On The Beach in high school in the early 60's and was very familiar with the name "Nevil Shute" but was unaware of the other novels he wrote. I check the Daily Deals everyday and what a prize I picked with this one. Based on enjoyment, it is the best value I have ever received from Audible. Robin Bailey's narration was perfect for me. From the first word, I was hooked. It was as if we were old friends, and he was telling this story just to me. Enjoyed every second and hated to see it end. One of the few books that I will definitely listen to again.
My second Q, and promptly downloaded 3rd in series.
Would have been a 5 star but narration was difficult at first. First class detective story!
Ethiopia is physical setting but draws characters from all over. With such a diverse history, the participants in this wonderful novel come together and weave a spellbinding story of family, dedication, faith, and history. Not to be missed, this is one of my favorites!
