I have tried to listen to this good but it is soooo boring. I have listened for about 2 hours and it has not said anything yet or come up with a story line. I am done with it. can not listen any longer.
This book may appeal to a young teen, but I doubt it. Very very boring, no story line. I listened to half of the first book and gave it up. The more I listened the more frustrated I was getting with the story. I even fast forwarded through a lot of it to see if it picked up but it just stayed boring and repetitive. Hopefully it picked up in the second book but I could not stand it long enough to get there. Actually the narrator did an okay job but he had a really crummy story to work with.
First I did not like the narrator and the Irish accent he used. It was hard to understand him in some parts of the book. It took a while to get into the book. I almost quit listening after the first 30 minutes because it was not going anywhere but stuck it out. Turned out to be a fairly good story. It is not an award winning book but okay to fill the time.
This is a very good story and really enjoyed the book once I got to part 2. Part 1 was way too long with way too much background on himself and family. This info did not make a difference knowing all that to hear the story of his Pirate experience. While Captain Phillips was on the ship and experiencing the capture by the pirates the book went on too long about his wife and was very repetitive on what she was going through and how she was handling the situation. The narrator was very good. I enjoyed listening to him. I also saw the movie and there is a lot more information in the book about the time spent on the ship than what is given in the movie.
From the first chapter to the last the book is very predictable. It is an okay listen. Passes time when driving down the road.
This book is so bad. I really considered returning it. I could not listen to the whole book. Unclear who or what her God is. I think maybe the Universe. Unclear what the point of the story was. Just don't waste your money.
This book is another great Michael Connelly listen that grabs your attention and does not let go. A couple places it started rambling unnecessarily but always came back.
The book has some twist that you are not expecting.
Great story but there was a lot of repetition. This book should have been at least 2 hours shorter. There was way to much talk about how great the Seals are. I do admire the seals and the training and expertise is wonderful and they are great but this went on and on and on in the book. I got it!
It bothered me greatly that the author kept talking about how God was there in many parts but at the same time he took God's name in vain over and over and over. Can't count how many times he used the word GOD D----. JUST WAS NOT NECESSARY.
I would rather here the F word than God's name taken in vain.
Not sure what the narrator of this book was trying to do but his accent was so annoying. Just use your regular voice and quit the souther accent. Sounded so fake!
Parts of this made me cringe when I here it.
I love hearing William Shatner telling his own story but the producer needed to fix the audio. Bill kept lowering and raising his voice to where I had to keep my hand on the volume knob to constantly turn the sound up and down. He would almost whisper some of the parts. I understand it was for the drama factor but then you can't hear him. That part is very disappointing. But the writing and the book itself is wonderful Very much enjoyed the book.
This book was a good story. The beginning of it seemed slow but once it picked up I was sucked in anxious to hear how it ended. As the book reads, I kept thinking about my own sons, wondering how I would feel in the same situation. The book was very thought provoking as you wonder how your marriage would survive, how to support your family. The book has a couple surprise twist that I was not expecting, making me want to keep listening wanting more. I would listen to it again.
