The story is convoluted, no discernible main character, story contains people with multiple aliases (all foreign names), and Phillips is monotone and his inhaling by mouth is annoying
Nope as I quit before the first part came to an end. I didn't care anything about the book.
One of the main premises is not probable and carries through out the story
The story had so many incorrect elements that it made the story unbelievable. As an example, without giving away too much, a "premonition" is something in the future, in the "story" the author uses the word explaining the current occurrence.
Nope. I quite after suffering 2 hours
An abbridged version of about 1/3 the length.
It was way too long with detail that, to me, provided absolutly nothing. As a short example: Theo was looking through a florist window and then needed to explained in detail, various flowers before seeing in the windows reflection his girlfriend.
All the above
I hate to say it, but it just might be a chick book, and this is the first of quite a few that I've listen to (chick books) and really didn't like
A believable story, which this wasn't, and a reader that was listenable.
Not the genre, just the combination of Mr. Hill & Mr. Sullivan. My own personal opinion is that Mr. Hill had someone else write it or he was kidnapped and held hostage (just kidding... but that's how it appears) and that George Guidall read the book and didn't want anything to do with it (& I don't blame him).
It's that bad and that stupid. You can't have a book with a specific time frame to have significant world events that did not happen. period!
Nothing. Although given the story, no one could make it better.
The whole premise is wrong!
A waste of a credit.
There was one review and it was 5 stars. So I got the book. The first part was "believable" but with 45 minutes to go it became stupid and I stopped with 15 minutes remaining and went to part 2. All I could take was 30 minutes and gave up. Everything became a conspiracy. I figured that within a few minutes tides would be included. If you really believe that everything that goes wrong is based on a conspiracy then this is a book for you.
The first part was pretty good. Then it got too "dramatic" for me. Various participants weren't believable. It got to the point that I didn't care how the book would end up.
First of all the reader was great! The book kept you wondering who/what/where & when. Little by little information would come out to answer those questions, but not entirely. I had to go back a couple of times to to re-listen a chapter to put together some information I might of missed (my attention span sometimes wonders!) then I can understand what's happening. There is a lot of "visual" narratives that puts you in the area, but not when in time, (as in past/present/future)but that could be just my inability to put 2+2. A very different listen/subject then I'm used to, but I highly recommend it.
At every turn all I could think was "oh give me a break". Her method of developing the characters was tedious at best. The one dimensional narration made this tedious listen not worth the effort to hope for improvement. Of the 200+ books that I've listen to I can't recall ever stopping, especially so early in the book. I just couldn't get into the book and didn't want to spend any more time with it.
I found myself frequently saying to myself "give me a break". It's boring. Predictable. Nonsensical. Details that provide nothing to the story except dragging out the story. MAYBE in an abridged version it would be listenable... but I doubt it. Oh... I like Scott Brick in other books.... but his Russian accent stinks and even he sounds bored.
