I'm a big fan of most of Dickey's work - especially the Gideon series of novels. If you're looking for more of that type - this book definitely not one to recommend. The narration is great as usual, but the story is way to slow with sporadic action mostly late in the book, and the characters are..... (odd choice of word here but fitting)....irritating. Main character is a morally mixed up whining sap. Listened to the whole book but can't say that I enjoyed it.
After this one.... now I have my doubts
Possibly, but only after strong recommendations from other listeners.
Performance was fine, the content of the book just did not deliver.
They all need work.....
I was a fan of Wilson's Robopocalypse so I was expecting more of the same action and interesting story-line. This book simply did not deliver. I found it boring, predictable, and was very disappointed.
Wow! What an awesome story! Gripping, gritty, and engaging. Wonderful narration. Really got a feel for the characters. Long, but you don't really want it to stop...so that's a good thing :)
What a certain somebody got their hand caught and other somebody had to get it
Has to be Sister
Why has this book not been made into a movie(s)!!!!!!!!
Way to slow an boring ..... could not make it through the first half. Characters just did not catch my interest.
So much use of the 'N' word eventually got to me and I could not finish this book. Maybe reading it is different but hearing it over and over again really grated on me.
This is definitely not on the same level as a Stieg Larsson novel. I too bought into the hype. Like other reviews indicate the book is not bad, just a bit slow and the end is predictable.
Very disappointed. Felt like I was listening to the scene-by-scene narration of a ridiculous video game. Not what I was expecting. Very predictable and silly. I just had to stop after the main character (a mere mortal mind you) jumped on the back of a 30 foot crocodile and snapped its neck with his bare hands ....ya....right. Even fiction has it's limits of believability.
