Wasn't sure how JK would handle a murder mystery, for me it was really good, she can transcend to this genre well. I too am looking forward to this becoming a series and the progression of the main character Comorant Strike. Also the images of London which so far the story is based in. A good listen recommend to mystery lovers.
Couldn't get into it like previous editions.... OK but not great. Preferred previous narrator.
Entertaining but not really my thing, a rainy day book maybe when between books.
Concentrates on life in the Gulag and Solzhenitsyns harrowing experiences and others around him. This volume reads more like a novel IMHO, and is great first person account of the horrors of the Terror and life in the Gulag, from a 20th century icon. Highly recommend for anyone with interest in the Soviet era of Russian history.
A captivating engrossing tale I finished in record time because I couldn't stop listening. Felt like I was in the story watching, very well written about a time that is hard to comprehend in my mind. Highly recommend to anyone from High School age and upward.
Spooky but compelling, Harry Hole is my favorite flawed protagonist in recent memory. This series lead me in to the entire Scandavian Crime Genre and must say this series is at the top of the list for me.
Maybe because I've listened to the whole series and I have really enjoyed it especially the art restorer side line. Seems its getting a tad too formulaic and predictable though I liked it and would recommend but just not highly as some of his previous efforts.
A complete detailed view of WW2, with some interesting little known events including China. The Eastern Front told as it should be with its importance and scale emphasized.
Good development of "Mr. Clark", dark, ruthless, but somehow likeable. This is the good Tom Clancy.
Mostly slow and plodding, characters not really developed, started as a good idea but somewhere along the way author seems to have lost the plot...so to speak.
