    Story
    (360)

    At first, the case of the bodies found in a Moscow park looked straightforward: a "troika", probably three on a bottle, drunk together and then frozen to death together in the brutal Russian night. But Chief Homicide Investigator Arkady Renko hits a sharp and complicated turn with the arrival of the KGB's Pribluda. Suddenly, his access to a routine investigation is blocked. Why?

    Good character development.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gorky Park?

    Very exciting ending!


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    It was often hard to distinguish who was talking in the book as the narrator rarely changed tones between characters.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Already a film for this book. Interested to see it now.

    New York Times bestselling author Ted Dekker teams with Tosca Lee to create this gripping thriller set in a desolate future. Many years have passed since civilization's brush with apocalypse. The world's greatest threats have all been silenced. There is no anger, no hatred, no war. There is only perfect peace... and fear. But a terrible secret has been closely guarded for centuries: Every single soul walking the earth, though in appearance totally normal, is actually dead, long ago genetically stripped of true humanity.

    "Takes a while to get into, but overall a good read"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. However, I didn't think I would for the first half of the book, and I almost gave up reading a few times. But the story eventually comes together to become an enjoyable read with some surprising twists.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The overall premise of the story is an interesting concept.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Henry Leyva???s performances?

    Maybe. The narrator (much like the book) seems to improve as the the story progresses. He's better in the second half of the book


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No
