I am a 7 year old boy. I really liked listening to this book. It's about a cat named Socks and his owners sell him to another family and after a while the family has a baby and it's really funny after that.
This novel was just "OK". Good enough to finish but not one of those knock your socks off edge of the seat thrillers. It seemed to me like some of the book might have been skipped and in some ways reminded me of an abridged version. Like one minute one of the main characters is in the hospital in serious condition and being confronted by her security guard and in the next scene she's with another character helping to thwart a terrorist plot. What happened in between? The plot was a little choppy and hard to follow, especially in the second part.
First, let me say that this book did not engage me right away. I agonized through the first hour or two before I was "hooked". After that, it turned out to be one of those books I could not put down. The story is unusual and unpredictable. The people in the story are deeply flawed and mostly blind, enabling the highly intelligent and diabolical main female character to outsmart everyone else. I would have written a different ending but since the rest of the plot is so nuts, why not the ending too? Great listen. FUN!
A rich American who isn't too bright (drives an expensive American car into Soviet Russia) kicks off the plot. Information he provides to the CIA kicks off a search for "The Charm School" where it is believed many Americans are being held. A solid listen if you are interested in Cold War era Russia and the mystery/thriller genre.
Wow! These Dewey Andreas adventures just keep getting better and better. Narration was great, plot was awesome and the pace of action was perfect. I know there's not a real person named Dewey Andreas but this book seems so REAL! Love the way the author structures his plots and brings all the thread in the book to neat and satisfying conclusions. Highly recommend this listen to anyone who enjoys thrillers. Great listen! Solid 5 ***** stars all the way.
Everyone in the world seems to be gunning for Scott Harvath, Brad Thor's superhero character of all time. After his girlfriend is shot and killed, he goes to ground to try to figure out what's going on and who added his name to the "black list", a list of people to be executed by the US Government. He finds himself cut off from everyone with back-stabbers everywhere. If he makes a phone call, uses the Internet or sends an e-mail, shortly afterward there is a hit team there to take him out. He finds it almost impossible to stay hidden and "off the grid" since anything he does, says or sends is immediately visible to data aggregators at an NSA contractor gone rogue. His only allies are his long-time friend "the dwarf" and a couple others. And, he's apparently got the US government, law enforcement and military against him. How will he ever overcome this huge problem? A good edge of your seat listen. Recommend!
Kendra, a formerly blind child therapist, whose ex-boyfriend has gone missing, helps to solve the case of his disappearance using her exceptional powers of observation. Having previously been blind, she is able to make conclusions and observations not possible by people who have always had their sight. The story has some fun twists and turns, enough to keep you interested. The narration is very good. Recommend for Iris Johansen and mystery lovers.
I found this book to be very long-winded. After listening to the first few chapters I skipped to the second to the last chapter, in a sense listening to a very abridged version. The entire mystery is "what happened to Bonnie"? Since I had read prior Eve Duncan mysteries I knew about Bonnie and wanted to find out what happened to her. I found out but the listen was less than enjoyable. The narration was breathless and just plain odd. Don't recommend this one.
This is the fourth in a series of thrillers. The main character Jonathan Grave is one of those super human ex-military types who can take on a battalion of soldiers and win. His assignment is to exchange money for a group of people from a US mega church. Sounds easy but it doesn't end up that way. After a gunfight with the kidnappers, Jonathan, his team, and his PC (precious cargo) head north, running into many obstacles along the way. If you enjoyed the other books in this series you won't be disappointed with this one. If you are new to the series you will still enjoy it as it requires no prior knowledge of the characters. Yes, I would recommend this book to mystery/thriller readers. It's not edge-of your seat suspense but it's a good listen.
We thought we had seen the end to the Nazis after World War 2. But wait, they're BACK with a vengeance and with the most diabolical plot to take control of the world once and for all. Ever wonder why so many German scientists ended up in the US? Wonder what really happened to Adolph Hitler? Wonder no more! This story will provide answers plus take you on an entertaining thrill ride for the duration. Much of the action in the book is over the top and highly unlikely but after all, it is fiction and if you can go along with the action and not dwell too much on the unlikeliness of it all I think you will enjoy this book. Scientifically, it's interesting, and a bit out of this world. From a human perspective, it's quite scary to think people can be as evil as portrayed in the book. This isn't a book that will put you to sleep. It isn't a book that you will want to listen to an hour at a time. It's one of those you want to listen to as quickly as possible to find out what happens next. Enjoy!
This novel was a good mix of suspenseful thriller and romance novel, one that will keep you entertained for many hours. There's plenty of action and drama, good characters, and no slow parts. Enjoyed this one!
