This is a typical Jackie Collins novel. And if you love Jackie's books and more to the point, Lucky Santangelo, you will enjoy this book. My only complaint is that Jackie decided to do the voice of Lucky herself...big mistake. Lucky is supposed to be Italian. Jackie's English accent doesn't fit the character at all.
Absolutely. I am in love with Victor the Assassin. As I wait for the next book I'd happily listen to this again.
I'm sure I'm not alone when I compare these books to "The Grey Man" series
I think these books are my first experience with Rob Shapiro but 2 thumbs up!
No it didn't make me laugh or cry. And I didn't want it to. I want action and suspense and this book gave it to me in spades.
Tom Wood is one of my new favorite authors. I hope this series keeps going. Victor is awesome and Rob Shapiro is an EXCELLENT narrator.
Yes. I'm normally a big fan of Mary Higgin Clark. I just don't care for Jan Maxwell's narrating. And this particular story just got on my nerves.
I just didn't care that much about the main character. I wasn't intrigued by the story and I couldn't wait for it to be over. I also don't like the way they're always talking about what they characters are thinking. It's annoying.
She sounds like she's whining all the time. And when she's trying to do a different voice she sounds like she holding her breath. I don't feel like her intonations are appropriate for the story and she doesn't make me like the characters.
The first hour of the book was excruciating. I could have skipped it.
I feel like Mary Higgins Clark may be falling into the same trap as Danielle Steel. All her books feel the same to me. I was disappointed. It will be a while before I listen to another one.
I would highly recommend this book! I kept me spellbound from beginning to end. I couldn't wait to get in my car to see what would happen next.
I might compare it to "The Partner" by John Grisham It had that "cat and mouse" thing going.
I always hear Jack Swytek's voice when I hear Jonathan Davis so I guess in this book I like Andy
When you think you have nothing to lose.....
I think this book was different than other James Grippando books. I LOVED it. He just keeps me interested ALWAYS. Another home run!
I'm already planning to listen to it again. This book is John Grisham at his absolute BEST! A Time to Kill was previously my favorite book. To have the characters come back in this story is a dream come true. Thank you Mr. Grisham!
Everything. The story was awesome, the characters entertaining.
Hard to say…probably the arrogant black attorney or Judge Atley
I just loved the book every step of the way.
I listen to my books in the car. I never wanted to get out of my car once I started this book. BRAVO Mr. Grisham. BRAVO!!
Just about everything. The main character was supposed to be in mortal danger throughout the book yet he was just…silly. You couldn't be frightened for him couldn't root for him. He was just awful. THe non-stop references to old movies and cancelled TV shows was simply annoying.
Not have tried to make it a comedy if they wanted me to take it seriously
He was actually very good. He was full of expression and had he been narrating another book I may well have enjoyed him.
Disappointment and irritation
I LOVE LOVE LOVE James Patterson. But this book was a total disappointment
This book is exciting from beginning to end!! I found myself taking the long way home because I didn't want to stop listening. What a riveting new character!
I think I would compare it to the David Baldacci series with the "Shaw" character or the Mitch Rapp books. The badazz hit man that you root for.
Too many to name just one and as I write this review I'm not even finished the book. But so far my favorite is the scene where the guys came to his "hideaway" to kill him and he blew the place up. Awesome!
I think the famous Omar quote from "The Wire" sums it up perfectly: "If you come at the King, you best not miss"
This author is up there with the greats: James Patterson, John Sanford, Vince Flynn. I can't say enough good things about this book. And let's not forget Jay Snyder. He was PHENOMENAL. I enjoyed every word that came out of his mouth. Not since Frank Mueller have I been this impressed with a narrator.
I don't read print versions anymore so I can't say
Absolutely!! I'm a new David Baldacci fan!
I am IN LOVE with Ron McLarty. He is one of the BEST readers I've heard recently. I would love for him to narrate every book I listen to. He was simply perfection
When love is gone...all that's left is revenge
Outstanding book. I can't wait to start a David Baldacci series
The narrator's voice got on my nerves
His inflections didn't work. His voice is just hard to listen to for a long time
Go back to my mysteries. This book was WAY too long.
Steve Jobs is a jerk. I know lots of geniuses are but...ugh. I'm really not an Apple fanatic. My sister works there and bullies me into buying apple products. I like my Ipad for travel but all in all I think Apple products are overpriced and overhyped. All this book did was solidify that opinion. I'm 2/3 through the book and I keep waiting for ANYTHING to like about this man.
I think it could have been a good story. I thought that was one of the worst narrators I've ever heard.
Change the narrator
No. It was hours of my life I'll never get back
I think the writer wrote a good story. Unfortunately, audio books depend every bit on the narrator as the story. I seriously couldn't wait for this book to be over.
I can't begin to tell you how much I miss Frank Muller. This man brings a story to life like nobody before or since. I would give him 10 stars if I could. And Grisham, well, we all know he's the master. The Testament is one of my favorites by him. The way this story unfolds is nothing short of genius. It starts with a bang and doesn't let up. I was riveted from beginning to end wondering how this whole thing would turn out. This is my third time listening to it. It's THAT GOOD.
