Wow, what a book, an enchanting, exciting well read behemoth of a story. With 56 hours, to enjoy this audiobook is one that will keep you happy for weeks. A multi level story of intrigue, big business and power games set in Hong Kong, this story is especially exciting for those who have had a love affair with asia or want an insight into the recent history of Hong Kong. Highly recommended!
If you have read one Jack Reacher novel you have read them all, but that doesn't stop me coming back for more. Like all Lee Child novels every page is filled with suspense and excitement and its the kind of thing you can't put down. Same goes with this audio book, if you want a sure fire way to while away some time then you can't go wrong with this action suspense novel..
Engrossing, hard to leave alone and written with typical Steven King aplomb. Nice reading too, overall a positive experience and not too dark...
If you like sci-fi and computer games, especially MRPG's, you will enjoy this book. Straight forward and fun with an easy prose suitable for a range of ages this is an amusing listen. Enjoyable but won't appeal to older readers/listeners who like a complex plot as it sometimes seems a little simplistic... but I am 36 years old and at 14 I expect I would have been truly mesmerised.
This story Offers an insight into Turkey and a fascinating sci-fi novel set in the near future it's sure to keep you enthralled. Things started a little slowly and at first I wasn't that impressed with the reading or the prose, but stick with it for an hour and you will be enchanted right to the end. Some interesting ideas, I will be looking out some more Ian McDonald books as I really enjoyed this one!
