Great story. My husband and I loved the travelogue style and the history of the Medici's and Dante. Made me at Florence and Venice to my bucket list and will attempt to read Dante again.
Robert, of course, he has so much depth and knowledge.
Trident Deception was a good "page turner" that I looked forward to listening to every day after work.
Hunt for Red October for sure, but Trident Deception holds it's own amongst the biggies,
Good narrator. Not overly emotional which was needed for this story.
I loved listening and learning the carnival/amusement vernacular. That made the story especially interesting to me. This coming of age story of a college man was tender and funny. The story wasn't particularly scary as a standard Steve King story can be, but was enjoyable in the same way that "Stand By Me" wasn't scary, but had some dark human moments, but not too harsh.
The plot kept me on my seat because I was not sure whether the story was going to get really scary. The ending was good and satisfied the suspense.
Michael Kelly's voice was great. He had voice of a youthful college student. It seemed perfect.
Michael and Devon seemed the most memorable to me for the long run, but the carnival owner and Madam Fortuna stick in my mind.
A story that can be read by all.
Most enjoyable? Wow, how is gut wrenching story about a raging alcoholic enjoyable...well because it is a story of redemption and hope. I first couldn't listen because the narrator reads this story so well that I was personally drawn back into the pain of alcoholic co-dependency....but as the story evolved I was sucked into Dan's story and rooted for him to survive. Plus the story of "telepa-kinisis" was so cool. I loved Abra and Dan's AA sponsors.
The most memorable for me was when the story took a great twist near the end. I was listening to the story and exclaimed "No f... way!" out loud. My husband wasn't sure what was wrong.
I liked the train scene where Dan, Dave, John, and "Abra" were faking out Rose and the True.
I was especially moved when Dan had the internal struggle when he was shacked up with Deany, the coke, and her toddler. We all make decisions we later regret and harbor guilt. Have to learn to "drop the rock".
I wonder if this book was cathartic for Stephen and his recovery? Bravo Mr King!
I really liked this book. I felt enmeshed in the British life, lingo, and food. The story wasn't exciting but it kept me interested the whole way thru. Rowling scored a 10.
I like Robin. She is excited to work helping a private detective.
I dont know exactly what I didnt like except for I found the story to be slow. The history of the construction seems excrutiatingly slow and didnt interest me, even though I am in construction.
Less background on the builders.
Alex and Milo are my favorite characters! Once again, great story!
We need something with more Robin in it next time! And dont forget Blanche!
I really enjoyed this book.
The paradigm shift and alternate universe is always a mind twister that leads us to think...What if?
