For me, this is a rare case where the abridged version would have been better. The book was just took too long to get to the finale, and I thought there was way too much detail with the dialog.
I would say it would be worth 5 hours of my time, but not 10!
This is a wonderfully told, light hearted "Biblical" story without being sacrilegious. Laugh out loud funny and I could certainly visualize the people and the places.
Similar to Dogma but without the edge.
Fisher did a great job as the reader.
Of course, who wouldn't want to have dinner with Jesus H. Christ, but I'd want BIF to come along too.
I always look forward to the new Steven Berry book and I think Scott Brick is a great reader. But King's Deception just didn't do it for me. I suspect that Berry was 1/2 way through writing the book when Ghadaffi was killed, so he had to do the story as a recollection, which was a distraction early on.
I just never got into the story, but I also don't care much about British Royalty or history.
I slogged through to the end, but it definitely put me to sleep several times.
The least interesting part was the arcane British history.
Scott was overly dramatic at times.
A great Audiobook. Don't let the length deter you. It has great pace all the way through!
