The performance was supurb.
Dan of course. Because he's a fellow alcoholic
When Jack Torrence appeared.
Not as good as The Shining, yet what could come close, Stephen King accomplished.
I would definitely recommend this book. It is somewhat of a short read but kept my attention.
I wasn't necessarily in the edge of my seat after I had figured out the ending before it happened. The only reason I didn't give it five stars. Not going to be a classic or anything like that. Just some good tension.
I definitely enjoyed the two performers.
That would be a spoiler.
Michael Crichton is an excellent writer. This is not a sci-fi book, rather it is a drama/thriller. I enjoyed very much but it had a couple loose ends which I will not disclose hence writing a spoiler. This is a 4 star book. It is not a classic, but it does keep your attention and with a great performance by Frances Cassidy. I would recommend this for a nice comfortable read. Not a bad way to spend a weekend.
This story was neatly put out. I had figured it most out from about a third into the book. So I wasn't in for many surprises. A bit predictable yet still entertaining. After you've read enough if these books you may want to be challenged a little more. The narration was excellent. Overall it wasn't a bad book. But it was by no means a classic.
This is the first book of NYPD RED and I can't wait for the release of the second one. The two narrators were superb in their depiction of the major characters. Though it is shorter than I am used to, this novel in non stop action. I highly recommend this audiobook.
I enjoyed this book. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that it was not exceptional. Jack Reacher is a character that I got to know in the first book, Killing Floor. I bought this one right after I read the first. I probably should have gone back to another series first, then purchase the book. It is definitely its own story. The backround from the first book was not as important as I thought it should have been. If you aren't familiar with Jack, go ahead and buy this. I'm sure I will buy more in the future. But I need a little break from the Reacher series.
But I really like the style of Lee Child. His writing is very compelling and wants you to read more and more.
I was very impressed by the style of writing from this author. It read like a movie script. The character of Jack Reacher has been established firmly. I am looking forward to listening to the next novel in the series, which looks very expansive. The Narration was one of the best I've heard.
I enjoyed this audio book very much, but did not know that this came from a series. I felt as if I was walking into the middle of a conversation. Characters and relationships had already been defined. That being said, It seemed like a few novels going on at the same time, totally unrelated. I don't want to give any spoilers though.
For the most part this novel was engaging and had me wanting more. I read it in two days. I enjoyed the writing very much and the narrator was very good. Though I do not feel like going back to other past novels to "catch up". I would like to hear more though. Continuing this story.
I never watched The Game of Thrones on HBO...and I am glad. It was though this book that I was introduced to this new world. I loved the performance of the Narrator. He allowed me to picture each character as it was written and how I have come to envision it for myself. This is the charm of audiobooks. The storytelling was of immense proportions. I compare it to Lord of the Rings. It has it's own map and kingdoms and kings, and queens. I look forward to the next "chapter" in this epic tale . Listening to this book was difficult at first; getting to know all the characters. But it was well worth the effort. I highly recommend this audiobook!
I like court room dramas and this takes place most exclusively in the court room.
I would recommend to someone in for the long haul. Was not disappointed.
More recent Steven King books, Not so much horror and terror but more suspence.
