Another reviewer complained about Penn's cursing. Unless you were completely unfamiliar with his style, it should come as no surprise. If you enjoyed his other works, you will enjoy this one as well. Buy with confidence if your ears can handle bad words.
The subject is interesting, but the story telling is slow and plodding.
We know the cops are good and the mob is bad. The author spends a bit too much time explaining the wonderful nature of the cops, leading to boredom.
I gave up half way thru the book simply due to the constant switching of narrators. Very distracting. If you can handle that aspect, the story is intriguing.
I had high hopes for this audiobook after reading the 2 reviews that were posted. Unfortunately, I have to disagree with them. The story is unimaginative and long-winded. Very predictable plot with a cop-out ending. It had potential but ended up flat.
I expected a run of the mill law thriller but instead got a poorly veiled religious diatribe. I could barely finish this audiobook. The sermonizing definately distracted from the story. AVOID THIS BOOK!!
Maybe the abridged version would have been better. Very long-winded descriptions which killed the pace of the story time after time.
I think the author would be better served if he wrote a non-fiction book regarding his views about the environment. This book was a poorly veiled attempt at getting a viewpoint across. Worst book by this author I have ever heard!! Whether or not you agree with his opinions, painful to listen to.
It was a chore to get through the whole book. I was usually 2 steps ahead as the narrator droned on about uninteresting issues. The abridged version may be kinder to the listener. I wasted a few hours listening to drivel unimportant to the plot development. Perhaps the author was getting paid by the page.
BORING!!! That Stephen King thought this was the greatest book never published surprises me. The characters were sappy, I could have cared less about what happened to them. The only reason I finished the book was I kept waiting for something to happen that would justify everyone else's lofty opinion of this stinker. Save your time and listen to something else.
Don't let the length of this audiobook scare you away. The story is very good and moves at a quick pace. While the story is a bit dated after 9/11, it is still an excellent choice
