This has the ear markings of a hundred or more "Good and Worthy" Action books. Before you think this is one of those novels; stop.
I believe it has a dozen or so paragraphs from each great novel of the Great writers of action and adventure rolled into one book. I would never state that there is a verbatim sequence of these other great novels because that would be plain illegal.
This book is fine if you need a quick pick; you see it, and time is ticking before you lose your hot spot WIFI connection.
To have it to hear in the background while you shop or multitask this is a good book. But if it costs a credit or more than $5 please spend a little time to find something else.
I listened to it all so there is some attraction and basic plot at work. It's just is a plot with a hero and nemesis that is comic book 101. There is nothing of substance in the whole book. But who said that is a bad thing?
I have so much to say about this series so far.
The Dresden Files are so far outside my "norm" I am thankful I pressed "Purchase" one day. Love it! Hate it! 1 thing I will state; you will have deep feelings about these books.
The series is a Rollercoaster of impossiblliy if you where to try to explain the action. Yet when listening you become a character within the madness. I love the escape.
always makes the listener love it.
the whole series has been a complete treat from first to last sentence.
This series has truly filled a void that 200+ Books, and many of those in a "Series", had seemed impossible to find again.
I met John Rain a long time ago in a single 1 time buy. I didn't realize or simply find any more in the John Rain exploits.
If you enjoy espionage, Hunting and Killing of the bad guys, this series is for you. Eisler creates the feeling like you can "experience" the surroundings of Countries in this world that few seem to write about. (Other than the many History, and Classics) I am hooked and Rain is someday going to merge with another set of Novels in a similar Series.
Buy these, you will thank me. IF YOU LIKE the ADRENALIN.
Eisler as a narrator? it is an easily odd transformation from, a middle of the road narrator through to a "must have voice".
Book one is a good place to start. A Clean Kill in Tokyo.
Only someone who has genuinely experienced this land can take you on the ride your will be HOOKED on.
I enjoyed this and will say it is not the "Masters" skill and teeth grinding experience but non the less and good Cash purchase
This is another home run from Thor and the Narration was amazing
Must Buy it. No Fence to sit on just get it,
I would recommend this to those enjoy the Detective type of books.
I was engaged but miss the "Blood Lust" for the good Thrillers and Covert Spec Ops.
Adrian McKinty has walked me through 4 books so far in true descriptive imagery of my 2nd generation removed Homeland. This is a spectacular and descriptive tale.
I can not get enough. The voice and cadence of Gerard Doyle is ingrained in my mind.
This; the first of two, has me needing to take a breath from the imagery and excitement this book brings to this Scottish-Irish man. Or to any Man or Woman who craves to learn ; even through fiction, the lands of which blood has been shed for decades.
A must read for those who need a real masterpiece from a different side of our globe and human trials and suffrage.
Mr. Maberry had me hooked on this series all the way.
This last(?) installment of the Joe Ledger series was funny, believable, unbelievable, and vivid in the minds eye.
When I stated "unbelievable I meant it literally, and yet the author (and Amazing Narrator Mr. Porter) were able to spin it into an actual masterpiece of a novel. I wish to say so much but being a "spoiler" is not my game. Even though my analytic side of my brain was yelling"; This Is Stupid" the creative side of my mind trumped it with the excitement.
This book has 70%+ of narrative dialogue that easily destroys many Authors published works. (Even Mr. King has killed good books this way) This is a novel that keeps you listening to every, self absorbed and arrogant moment of Joe Ledger. His descriptive and essential character building, and dialogues are essential to this book. It just "Makes" you keep listening and waiting in anticipation. I only recall a few books that can get away with this and they are usually Award Winning Documentaries that Narrative and descriptive writing is the basis of the book. (A couple of these are "Outlaw Platoon", by Parnell and "The Outpost", By Tapper)
Please, I urge anyone who has an open mind and enjoys Thrillers, buy this series. Yes the whole series. You won't be disappointed.
