This was the book that hooked me into the series. A very unique story, Sci-Fi and fantasy mix with a huge upgrade in narration. Muller takes a little while to get into it. The first six hours he tended to end his sentences weird. But once you get comfortable with his style, the voices he uses absorbs you into the book. This was an easy five star rating. I only wish all 7 books were like this.
If you continue on with the other books you will find that it doesn't last. You will lose Muller in book 5 through 7, an unfortunate accident ended his career. Even the stories seem to lose uniqueness and become drawn out. At least, though, you get some great books in the middle like this one.
At first I was taken back by the audio quality but in the end, the message is what matters. Though repetitious in many spots, the concepts are difficult and it actually ends up helping. Highly recommend.
I still love the storyline, pace of action and characters. Narration remains excellent and Jordan keeps the suspense up in key parts of the book. I am starting to wonder, though, how he will be able to keep it up over 12 books. I would be loving this series if it was a trilogy. I have a feeling a lull must be in the future. Cross my fingers on book three.
This is not my typical genre but I enjoyed the characters, plot and the narration was top rate. Jordan can write with the best of them. I am hoping the sequels match the quality of this first book. Ratings are all high and the narrators don't change. Hard to come by in a 12 book series. Would recommend to almost anyone.
Littell has not let me down once. All of his books have great characters, a plot that moves along at a good pace, and with a great finale. Brick is a great pairing for Littell as well. Wish I could find more authors like Littell. This book might not be his best but still it is five star worthy. Highly recommend for anyone into espionage books.
William Gibson is a rare author in my book. The books he writes are well thought out, includes great characters, and his style makes dull narration fun to listen to. I loved this book! More mystery/espionage type book then his sci-fi stuff which I also thought was incredible. This would be a six star book if I could do it. Highest recommendation.
Though the book was a little slow in many parts but it held my interest and ended with interesting plot lines. Sometimes frustrated that it will take four chapters to complete one scene in the book. I am a little cautious going forward with this series. Narrator changes half way through and seems to have a lot of filler. Will tip toe into the next book.
Love the writing, how the mystery evolves and coupled with solid narration. Highly recommend the series. I do like sports and maybe that plays a part. But should be liked by all.
Some how his later books lose me in details. You have to stay focused on the book to a higher degree to keep the plot straight. This one bored me toward the end. Still, don't think I would ever give Ambler lower than a 3. He just too good of a writer.
Gibson is clearly a top rate author. What a great mix of plot, characters, and action. Narration continued to be top rate. Not for everyone but if you think it may be worth it based on the audible description, then you will love it. 6 stars easy!
I enjoyed the book from many different angles and 5 stars is warranted. The only critique would be the emphasis on christianity through the book. Would rather it be religion neutral. Even through I am a christian. Makes a stronger argument if specifics of faith are left out in my mind. Still would highly recommend. Only other comment is to have frequent updates of this title that include the latest scientific info. A book like this will become quickly outdated if it doesn't.
