Sadly, I purchased this book whilst on holiday, hoping for the regular brillance and story telling of Bryce Courtenay, but I was sadly disappointed.
This is my first Jo Nesbo book and I couldn't stop listening.
I constantly went back to listen to this book every break that I got.
An incredibly well written and performed series. The various personalities were well thought out.
Elements of the storyline reminds me of David Farlands The Sum of All Men. Absolutely gripping and unpredictable.
A fantastic story that kept me gripped to the end. This is how fantasy is supposed to be written. Great narration too.
The plot was excellent, and not always predictable, at points I was cringing with emotion waiting to hair how things would unfold.
The narator spoke to slowly. I suggest listening at a faster speed 1.25x or 1.5x to tolerate his voice.
I have downloaded and enjoyed all of Mitch Rapp series, even the ones with the questionable narrators. This one was superb in places but I was disappointed with the plot that I felt was a little thin and VERY predictable at the end. I do hope that Flynn is not losing his touch. I still enjoyed the plot.
I enjoy Tom Clancy's plots and am happy to listen to more, but will avoid further books narrated by John MacDonald.
George Guidall would have made this book much more enjoyable. John MacDonald sounded almost robotic so I had to increase the listening speed to 1.5x.
Definitely worth listening to.
After listening to this audio version I would definitely prefer the print version .
Kilban repeated said the word 'lived' incorrectly and made the main character sound unstable in many instances. His performance was so disconcerting that I had to play about with the audio speed (1.25x) to find a speed that I could tolerate for the rest of the book. Such a disappointment.
Definitely was much easier to listen to this book than to read it as the stories flowed much easier at the beginning.
Scott Brick was an excellent choice of narrator as he kept an even pace and his characters were flawless.
