After a lot of searching and trial and error looking for a new author to enjoy, I stumbled across this book and it's fantastic! The author has a true gift, keeping you enthralled and entertained to the point that it's hard to stop listening to the book. The ideas he comes up with are truly fascinating and believable at the same time.
The narrator is brilliant, bringing life to the characters and placing the right emphasis at the right moments. It's easy to imagine the characters as the narrator speaks for them.
I've now started reading The Neanderthall Parallax series (also by Robert J Sawyer) and I'm now hooked on that!
Haven't read the print version, but the audio performance was outstanding.
So believable and so many uh-oh moments - edge of the seat.
Don't want to spoil anything, but loved the scene where the laptop dies and he jokes about writing a review to the manufacturer.
A bit of everything - learned heaps too.
I can't believe the amount of detail in this book. It is so well written that it's a pleasure to absorb every bit of information while enjoying the storyline like it's a blockbuster movie. I heard this will be made into a movie starring Matt Damon too - I really hope so!
Although I highly recommend book 1, this follow on becomes boring very quickly and fails to inspire imagination like the first book did.
Basically, book 1 felt adventurous and it was exciting to visualize the fantastic ideas the author brought to the story, but in this book there are no new ideas and it goes from being adventurous to a boring love story with barely any excitement.Such a shame, as I was excited after the first book to know there were 2 more to follow.
Having read the reviews for book 3, it appears it doesn't get any better so I'm now searching for a new series to read.
As with all the Jeremy Robinson books I've listened to it is a great book.
Jeffrey Kafer is the best narrator I've heard - he does the characters beautifully and keeps you engaged through the entire book!
The toughest special ops team come up against an impossible enemy - the inanimate!
The entire Chess-Team adventures are a great series. What it lacks in believability (sometimes a little far fetched) it makes up for in great edge of the seat story telling and brilliant narration. Thoroughly recommend all of them.
