I have consumed these three books in as many weeks...and so it was easy to keep the thread of the story throughout. After reading a couple of the other reviews, I thought it was going to be hard to keep the Chinese names straight but because of the excellent narrator, his pronunciation, and his magnificent voices/characters, it wasn't difficult...but I was glad others had indicated that you really had to be on the watch for that.
I will be looking for other books by this author and will stay tuned for the next Milo Weaver book...because I can't imagine Steinhauer won't continue with this troubled and interesting character.
YES! Very glad that the authors have re-found the magic of Agent Pendergast. I have read or listened to every one of these books and the last couple were lacking, but now...I think they are back in the swing. Very good. Love the connections and continued mystery behind past and present.
Keep it coming Preston & Child! Thank you!
I bought this one over 6 months before I listened to it and I once I started, I wish I had listened immediately. Every part of this book was excellent and from the reviews, the next book is one to read not listen to and I'm VERY SAD that they didn't continue with the same narrator. She was superb.
Wow... This wasn't what I expected, although I'm not sure what I expected. It was excellent, compelling, informative, and surprising. Definitely worth a credit or a purchase. This author and this narrator work well together, too.
I made it through nearly half of this book because I kept hoping it would improve but it didn't. Just ridiculous, impossible to follow, etc., etc. I had hopeful but it was not worth a credit and moreso, not worth my time.
As good as the first in the series and will definitely buy the next one. Outstanding story and narration. Keep with these characters.
Just an incredible book from start to finish and I'm actually glad I didn't realize/remember that this was written under a pen name. After listening - I will be looking for all the books in this series and am downloading the next one as soon as I finish this review. Characters were interesting and layered and the narrator - WOW! Perfect. Just perfect. THANK YOU for continuing to write. It shows that writing when you have this kind of talent has nothing to do with how much money you have - it has to do with the fact that you have stories to tell and you can't wait to do the work (hard work) to be able to tell them!
WOW! I'm online now to nab the next book in this series. I'm getting to know the characters and appreciate the people, the politics, and the story. Excellent!
I've listened to all of them and each one has been excellent. I believe this one could be the best of all - so far. I intend to buy Book 7 right now!
The book was potentially a good one although not the best of the series. Titus Welliver - holy crap. Maybe he's a good actor (I have no idea), but his narration was horrible. Where, oh where, was Dick Hill? Or really, anyone else? I listened to the entire book on double time.
Oh, my goodness. This was a fascinating book, even though it wasn't what I expected. To have such a personality-driven and layered book makes this one stand out. Christopher Lane did an excellent job with the narration. Because it was slow, which was appropriate, in its delivery, I ended up moving it to double-time on my iPhone. I would recommend this because of how you'll be surprised.
