I have like much of Kings work in the past but unfortunately the Dome is not worthy to share the book shelf or in this case the hard drive with the others. First and foremost the reader is an armature that has little command of what it take to hold a listeners interest. His attempt at giving the characters life and to create accents that fit the location of the story is poor at best. One of the main characters "Renee", a Selectman from a small town in Maine, sounds like he is from South Carolina. His attempt to create children's voices is laughable and painful at the same time. If I hear the name "Barbie" spoken in that sing-song sarcastic way I think I'll scream. As for the story itself, It really fell flat for me. I know King is all about the supernatural but this story is so ridiculous and lacks any reason for the event itself that I wanted it to end. And speaking about ending, this story could be 5 hours shorter and you wouldn't miss anything. Kings attempts at humor by interjecting stupid one liners at the most inopportune moments is frustrating. I found myself telling the character "shout up and answer the question", it more important than your joking". So you see I didn't really care for this story. King can and has done much better. But to each his own. P.S. Raul, look for another line of work!
If i were Lee Child I'd be yelling Copy Right infringement! They are both Bad-Ass military cops. Even their names are similar, Reacher and Puller. All they need is a Pusher to make it a three-way. Baldacci should stick with the John Carr. Don't be diss'n other people.
This in the seventh book in the Emberverse series and it did not disappoint. Great story line, memorable characters and good narration make this series a winner. I find it hard to turn it off. Can't wait for the next installment!
Really enjoyed this story as I do with all Cusslers' work. I read some bad reviews of the narrator so I was apprehensive. After all Scott Brick is one of the all time greats. After the first 10 minutes I was completely absorbed in the story and never gave it a second thought. Jason Culp did a very good job, well done. If you like Cusslers work, you won't be disappointed.
I was pleasantly surprised how good this book is. I was a little leery about reading a Swedish author but the translation and the narrator are very good. Salander is my kind of girl, young, quiet, smart and sexy.
This book should be required reading for every voter in the USA. We need to clean house in Washington and put this country back on track.
Played with fire may be better than the first novel if that is possible! It is such a shame Stieg is gone, he has so much talent. I look forward to the next book to be released in May.
This book is a good follow up to "Spin". I think it got a pretty werid at the end, but alot of sifi books do. Scott Brick is one of my favorate narrators.
Too much military jargin, could not really follow the events and lost intrest. Plus I know how it ends, he's still out there.
This is not his best work, but still entertaining.
