The plot is never completely reviled until the last few chapters and then it unravels fast. By then you have to know how it ends. For most of the book the story kept me glued and I did like that it was not a cop story or vampire story. The story moved along and those are the kind of books I seek out. Good one!
A great story of honor. Unbelievable tale of courage. Nice to know this can happen in our world
From start to finish the book stayed on course. Narration was perfect and that made this one enjoyable book. Highly recommended.
Note to self............In the future, disregard the first 5 reviews posted. More than likely they are from the author or friends of the author. No book is ever as good as what the first 5 posts claim. That being said, the book was interesting enough and moved along at a good pace. At times the premise was a little distracting but it worked. This is not a normal book for me to listen too, but I'm glad I did.
The story moved along at a good pace, but I felt as though Patterson thought the more plots, sub plots and another plot he could shove into one story the better it would be. There is no thought process, just a typical crime - good guy get the bad guy. This is about as basic as you can get and proof that money means more than a well written book and that James will continue to crank these out like eggs in a chicken factory. It will be a long while before I buy another Patterson book.
The narration was great and the story moved right along, but there was nothing earth shattering or surprising. I kept hoping for a twist, but alas - nothing abnormal. I will watch the movie and see what all the fuss was about.
The character development was quick and good. As things move along you can kinda see what was coming. At the point of epic development I felt that it was a little unbelievable, but I can see why that was by the end of the book. The ending did wrap things up nice and tighty.
Moved along quickly and somewhat entertaining - I enjoyed Lisa Gardners book "Gone Girl" so I had hoped this one would be as fun.
I have a dog and love them as pets. Listened to one dog book before and swore that I would never do that again. OK, so I lied. I should have listened. The book started off well enough, then kinda fizzed out. The narrator doing the main characters "dog talk" was a little much. The book was typical and the ending you could figure out after chapter 2. I give it a shoulder shrug and an "Eh"
Love the narration as always by George Guidall - the story line.....not so much. Once you understand that ALL the books have the same story told over and over - you start looking for another "Gone Girl" book - you want something different! Quit banking on the same ol same ol and write something!
I found that as much as I wanted to learn about this pope, the author never stayed on point. We had flash forwards, flash backwards and mixed in with that were lots of key points in history. This does not flow like a regular book, but rather a bunch of bullet points that are formed together in some sort of time line with tid bits hanging off of that. I never could stay focused enough to finish the book.
Sad to say I did not like this book. Very S L O W and never really getting to the point. This book drowned on and on and on and on about such little details that played no part in the big picture. As much as I will be the first guy to stand up and promote these books - don't start with this one.
