I am a little old lady and love Stephen Hunter and Bob Lee, but we have a problem now. Bob Lee is 66 years old: too old to do what he does best, so the story takes another path. I liked this book as a stand alone story, but it is not about our Bob Lee. Unfortunately the author has tied his books to a timeline and we have gotten to the last stages of Bob Lee's life. I would like to see the author go back and give us more adventures in years past. I did not care for the narrator. He did a decent job, but his voice does not fit my mental scenario that I created when reading all of Mr. Hunter's books through the years. I know Bob Lee is from a humble background, but he is a master, an artist in his field. He is the best. Narrator should be reading Mickey Spillane - needs to be more like Gary Cooper - smoother.
Another great one from Ms. Flagg. She introduces another section of USA, gives you interesting information about WWII and flying and, of course, great characters. Never let's me down!
I read this book when it came out and gave it high marks, not so much for the story as for King's handling of the characters. There is no one better than King when kids' actions and dialog are being depicted .BUT, Steven Weber, as narrator, blew me away. Perfect pace and tone of voice for whatever level story needed at any given point. He actually scared me! I will be looking for other.books narrated by him.
This is my favorite Koontz book. Have read it twice over the years and now have listened to Audible version. It has wide appeal. There is a human love story and loving relationship between a dog and a man and a woman. It has a touch of sci-fi, and is definitely a thriller! How can you miss if you buy this book?!
There are too few books on the history of early pioneer life in many areas of the United States. Florida is one of those areas. This book is a real gem. Great descriptions of daily life, geographical surroundings and the commercial development of the state. I loved every word! And George Guidall is the absolute best narrator. I don't even hear him, I just see, in my mind, the pictures he is painting with the words. Have one negative thing to say, ''what do you read after finishing a 5+ book''?!
I enjoyed the setting, the plot, and the scientific knowledge known in that era, but I thought the narrator was a bad choice for this particular book. He sounded to me like he should be reading a hardboiled modern detective story. I thought it was the wrong tone for the book. It made it very difficult to stay immersed in that time period.
This is the best mystery/suspense I have read all year. Great plot and characters so well defined, I had no trouble keeping up with who was who. I had eyed this book for quite.a while and bought it when Audible put it on sale. Thanks Audible, I owe you one!
One of the 5 best mysteries that I have ever read or listened to and I am 72 years old! The plot, the characters, and the narrator were all perfect. Obviously it is not a run of the mill mystery. you can get info on the story elsewhere. I believe it is my job to share my experience and thoughts on the quality of the book.
Ruth Yancy Fox represents those people in one's life who try to steer your path in the direction that they think is best. Of course, her actions, for the most part, are larger than life, but certainly ring true. I wish more of Ms. Siddons books had been recorded unabridged. Her stories set in the South are perfect. Don't understand why this has not been corrected.
Loved this book when I read it and equally love audible version. I know Ruth Rendell's detective sells more books, but I LOVE her books written under name of Barbara Vine. Psychological suspense at its best.
