...one of the few I have ever given up on without finishing, not because the story was so bad, but because the narration was annoying. Perfect diction is not the most important consideration...in fact too much precision can set your nerves on edge and is many times accompanied by an emotionless tone.
I've read (listened) to a number of Silva's books, and find he has a framework (that is repeated in each story) on which he hangs another storyline.
Frankly, it's getting boring.
good book...BAD narrator
The author is a screenwriter? A 60's-type? Why do I think 'Oliver Stone'? PC?....you 'betcha!
...if you like the NYTimes, you'll appreciate this; condemnation of US practices and confirmation of the correctness of PC thought
Good plot...have listened to all available Rebus in US...the narrator is EXCEPTIONAL: wish he could narrate every one I buy...
