Listened to almost 6 hours and nothing has happened. Just lots of character information and of course the Judeo/Roman history (which is why I continued to listen) There is no way this can be called a thriller/suspense. Reading my Bible is much more suspenseful than this book.
It just doesn't deliver a good story. I don't think I can finish this, regardless of how much I find the historical information interesting.
Yes-hope he is good in another book I have in my library if the story actual has some suspense/action to it, instead of drawn out character study.
want my credit back
Same, not sure why I listen to them because this narrator is horrible.
Boring, reader is just not involved, phones it in. Very irritating. Won't listen to another booker with Kate Reading as narrator. I am just so done with her horrible performance.
I kept listening only because I wanted to see the ending and as usual, was way too obvious.
Pet Peeve, if you are going to narrate a book, learn to pronounce names of towns and institutions properly. Totally unacceptable in today's internet, where you can find enunciation keys everywhere.
Pronunciation for Gustavus Adolphus (Gus·ta·vus Adol·phus) not goosed toff us or whatever it is he says, horrible
Si of course
Yes, Jase was a bit difficult to listen to so I listened in shorter spurts than I did Happy Happy Happy. I like Jase but as a good narrator, not so much.
No way could I have done that, best to listen in small does
Great to learn what made Si the man he is. He was much more grounded throughout his life than Phil. The Viet Nam stories were OK but what did it for me the most was the ending where Si told us about his faith. The letters from his darling dear wife was so touching. Also the letters from his kids. I commend Si for keeping his kids and wife off of Duck Dynasty, allows them to maintain their privacy. Si is someone I would love to know in person, what a wonderful man and his silliness and HEY just adds so much to his personality, that all came out in the book. Carry on Si.
the whole thing, was expecting something funny, at least maybe light hearted, hopefully like a Stephanie Plum book. NOT at all! Maybe it was the delivery by the narrator, trying to have a terrible nasal Texas twang. Definitely asking for my credit back and won't try another by this author or narrator.
totally lame performance
There were a few moments that could have been developed into something funny but it just fell flat time after time.
If I had the book I could have gone back and reread some of the things towards the end. When I listening, I multi-task, I had to replay a few chapters to make sure what I thought I heard I heard, especially near the end.
the end really summed up the story so well (no spoilers here) but it showed the many levels of the story
he is just so easy to listen to, my favorite narrator
No, too long and you need time to absorb it all
The ending was great, not what I expected and had so many levels and depths for the characters. Really enjoyed this book and hope the author can write another as well as this one. The story had a different background than most of what is out there now but it kept the suspense and was thought-provoking as well. Best book I have listened to in quite a while. Highly recommend, especially to those looking for something different from the norm.
Whoever said this author was in the style of Clive Cussler is so totally wrong. That was an insult to Cussler. This book was garbage and I don't know why I listened to it. It took over an hour to even get started. Ridiculous storyline. Thankfully I didn't use another credit on this author. The only thing that was worthwhile at all was the narrator.
One thing this has taught me, pay attention to the bad reviews, much more truthful.
No, there are great authors out there, just not this one.
Mangan was fine. When the book started the author was reading and it was awful. I almost quit before the actual book started.
only the narrator
This is more sci fi than a thriller...nothing thrilling or suspenseful about this trash. I know my mother taught me if you have nothing good to say, say nothing at all...so I shouldn't written a word.
Enjoyed the new characters, definitely going to be a new series. Nice to have a strong female that isn't a constant screw up like Stephanie Plum, though I love her too-keep going Kate.. Nicholas Fox character is terrific, a con man's con man, could charm the pants off a nun.Hope they keep and develop the supporting characters, especially the actor, the woman of all trades and Kate's father.
Too many, one would be a spoiler. Next time I see a Toblerone bar I will probably snicker.
Very good, like him as a narrator.
Nothing extreme but really enjoyed it.
Any in the series
Skye. She seems to only have two female voices.
Great to mix-up with my more serious selections
No, the narrator gets a bit tiring and I almost quit when she horribly mispronounced cities and areas. If you are going to narrate about a known setting, learn how to pronounce the names. Pitiful. Also her voices all sounded alike, she had one female style and one male style. Again, if you want to narrate learn how to do it.
Good story overall. Everyone was suspect right to the end.
See above, terrible narrator
Served it's purpose of light entertainment.
