Worth the credit and then some. Narration was incredible, made the book real and engrossing. Being historical fiction you never know quite where the story will lead, a plus in my mind. You give up trying to predict the plot and just get into the characters and story. Can't wait for the 2nd book in the trilogy. Highly recommend!
Wow. If I had known that the end of the trilogy would basically be a diatribe by Follett on his political beliefs, I would not have started it. Of course too late now. I weathered the marathon. Seemed that each book got worse in the series and clearly book three was the worst. Too bad. Such potential but a total bust.
What a great writer. The characters are great, plot keeps you guessing and no slow points along the way. Of course have a great narrator doesn't hurt. This would be a 6 star if I could give it. Cant' wait for another book in this series.
I loved Deal Breaker so I went with book two in the series and was pleased but I start to sense a formula to Coben's writing. Also a little too much sarcasm. Maybe the novelty of the first book made it a five star. Still I like the way Coben creates a story and I will get more of his books. Just hoping the future books have more variety in plots and story structure.
This is not my favorite Murakami book but it held my interest and I could get into the main character. Enjoyed the narration fit the book well. Hard to give Murakami less than four stars.
Loved the story. Plot was solid and pace was great. The narrator, though, sounded like Clint Eastwood in a Dirty Harry role. Distracting at first then but seems not to be as bad toward the end of the book. Connelly has not disappointed me once. Great writing always wins out over marginal narration. Highly recommend.
I am a huge Murakami fan and have listened to most of his books. This one though fell flat. Maybe the poor narration was the reason but I think the actually story was also to blame. Even the characters were hard to get into. Not like Murakami's other books. This is the first Murakami book I would not recommend to other readers.
Hard to criticize anything about Ambler's writing. He can make a 6 hour book seem like 10 hours. Everything flows, the plot holds your interest and he has a great way to create characters that are interesting. Also great narration on this book. Recommend highly.
The book kept me coming back for more. Characters were well done and excellent narration. A lot of scientific detail that made me zone out at times but did also get one into the action aspect of the book and certainly made it more realistic and hence more interesting. Would recommend this book but probably not for everyone.
Amazing biography and well researched. The down side in my mind was the book many times reads as though the narrator is reading an encyclopedia version of the main characters life. Don't know if it the writing style or the narrator's monotone voice. Also just a little too much details in the book that does not add to the story in my mind. The good side of the book is the amazing subject. I am usually not a fan of historical non-fiction but this story was worth it. This book is not for everyone but for many it will be well worth it. I would recommend people read a description of the book prior to buying this one. I try not to do that so I don't spoil the plot, in this case I wish I would have. If there is an abridged version in the future, that would probably be the better choice.
Wow. So glad I pulled the trigger on this book. Everything about this book was well done. Great plot, characters and pace. Could not wait to get back in the car each day. Can not wait to listen to more books from this author. This is well worth a credit.
