Did you ever read a book and feel like it had been done before? That was how this book was for me. I also didn't like care for the progression of the book. I felt like the story could have been told in about 1/2 the time. I felt like the author was trying to develop these deep characters and relationships, but never quite got there.
The narration was awesome however and that was what kept me engaged in the book.
This was a great insider's look into Google. Everyone pretty much knows about Google and its founders, but this really steps you through the company's evolution. There were times I laughed out loud, and times I shook my head in disbelief at some of the stories. It went at a great pace and I didn't want it to end.
WOW! Vince Flynn delivered on this one. Great plot! Mitch is locked and ready to kill every terrorist in his sight, and maybe even a few who aren't. Not to give anything away, but something happens to Mitch and it is very interesting to see Mitch in this light...maybe a kinder, more gentle Mitch...Great story from start to finish. I didn't want this one to end.
Same narrator as the past books in recent years. I just love him. He plays Mitch so well!
Cute story. Easy listen. Definitely would appeal to high-techers out there of the Google generation. Not going to win "book of the year", but if you want a light mystery, enjoy books, and wonder about life as a googler, then you will enjoy this.
What a great book! John Corey is in a bad mood - exactly the way I like him! He is in a place he hates, hunting the Panther and is grumpy, grumpy, grumpy! His sarcasm makes me laugh out loud.
The story is fast paced, with twists and turns. Suspenseful - didn't want it to end. Nelson DeMille absolutely delivers once again!
It needed to be A LOT shorter. I have no idea why this book has received so many wonderful reviews. Are people's own lives so utterly boring that this trash spices it up? It wasn't even the subject matter. It was more that I found the main character, his lack of respect for women, his morals and values, and his attitude towards sex disgusting. I am not some prude when it comes to sex or sex as subject matter - this is about awful writing, narration and story line.
Not anything by this author
The narrator was so annoying. It was like listening to a 50 year old try to imitate a teeny-bopper. Like Oh MY God!
Christian was vile. Anyone who found him remotely appealing needs their head examined.
I can't even currently think of a book I liked less. That was hours of my life I can never get back.
I fell in love with every character right down to the dog! Great story! Good mystery with a nice romantic story tied in. I cheered for the main character to overcome everything! I laughed out loud at times and was sitting on the edge of my seat at other parts. Great narrator! I defy you to find one bad thing about this book! Put it on your summer reading list! One of Nora Robert's BEST!
As anyone who listens frequently, you know a narrator can make or break an audiobook. This narrator broke it. The story is interesting to the point I think it makes you want to know what happens. I feel like there was over-development of characters such as the main character's daughter Megan, but not enough development of her step-daughter who enters the book with the shocking news and then disappears for the rest of the book until the end. There were a lot of stories going on within the story at times and it made the book feel disjointed at times. Not one of my favs by her, but not the worst either.
It sounded like the recording was uneven. I found myself adjusting the volume a lot. I have never had to do that before with an Audiobook. I loved having Garry Marshall tell his story as the narrator however if you aren't used to listening to a very thick NY accent, you may have a hard time with it.
He has had a fascinating life. He knows everyone, and is one of the biggest players in Hollywood, however is very, very down to earth. There aren't any Hollywood shockers or scandals disclosed, but a real life, honest glimpse into a powerhouse's life. It is a good listen.
It is a fast paced legal thriller the way The Firm by Grisham was. You are not sure why this is being done to this lawyer...why he is being singled out...I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a well done legal thriller that will keep you guessing.
