I became a fan of John Corey and Kate Mayfield after the Lion's Game, eager to get more I got this despite the reviews about the ending. Sorry to say they were right, the ending was completely a "cop" out. Wasn't impressed at all. Wildfire is a little bit better but not much. Take my advice at leave it at the Lion's game. Scott Brick who is one of my favorites really does up the "New York" accent in these two, but he's still great. Check him out in Cold Blood, whoa that gave me chills.
Completely interesting and fascinating!
My God, this book is so boring! I love spy novels, but this is not one of them. Stick to John Corey and Jason Bourne. Scott Brick who is one of my favorite readers does a great job (as usual) but I'm just not interested at all in these characters. There is NO ACTION or suspense whatsoever. It's a boring political novel with no decernable heroes or villains, in other words there is nothing to sink your teeth in to. Save your credits.
Got this book because of all the positive reviews and I can say they were right. Intriguing book, started off a little slow but then it's non stop action. The bad guy in this book is the best bad guy I've seen in years, he has got to be my favorite. LOVED HIM, he's intelligent, vicious, and totally justified.
I listen to my books in the car, at work,in the gym, etc, times when i have to divide my attention, which made this book extremely difficult to follow. Its read in a fast paced (snide sounding)English accent that uses a lot of sophisticated words and concepts. I wonder why they didn't get someone with a Spanish accent who can better add to the cultural effect of the region in which the story is set. I'm sure its a wonderful book but to me its like Shakespeare on speed.
I got this book because of all the great reviews and they were absolutely right! This book is extremely exciting and captivating, I often found myself cheering. The narrators were great, character impressions great, it's just a great book!! A must have for Sci-Fi lovers
Well first off the Narrator does an excellent job great character impressions. The book is very good but it's very gloomy and dark. It's also hard to keep track of all the Russian names so what I did is as soon as I heard a new name I gave it an English equivalent name for example one character's name is Marmeladoff so I remembered him as Marmalade.
