This may have been a fine novel unfortunately I will ever know. The narration was so poor that I could only pick up 50% of the dialogue. This type of gross inadequacy should result in a refund.
write a real novel. How about a plot, characters and a story line.
Narrator was fine.
This was an expensive construction manual. There is no story or characters. The premise sounds interesting but that is all. If you want to read how to build a fortress this is your book otherwise buy a real novel.
Could not get through an hour. This book should have been in romance section.
The reading was fine and I believe this is one of those choices where I bear the burden. I was looking for an abc book on Zen and this tomb exceeded was a little above my expectations
Should have been placed in the comedy section. A series of slightly funny stories does not a mystery make.
Although the narrator is quite eloquent his unexpected changes to an African American accent are disconcerting. I do not mean slang, the diction is fine, I mean minor variations such as vowel lowering, consonant clusters, etc. that would lead one to believe that an African American was speaking. It is only mildly disturbing but does have an impact on the novel. At one point you think the lead character is African American and at other times you don't. It is not restricted to the lead but moves in and out of various characters at no particular time.
The novel was excellent and I will purchase other novels by R.J. Ellory.
If I wanted to listen to leftist rhetoric I could watch one of Obama's speeches on television
Words fail to capture the atrocity of this so called Book. I have read all of King's books and this one would need a new category for its placement.
The narrator almost ruined this most excellent novel. The work had all of the elements of a great mystery unfortunately the narrator did his best to destroy the author's effort. My rating is entirely based on the book not the storyteller.
Even a cursory listening would have revealed the almost purposeful inappropriate pronunciation of the narrative. Audible should at least require some review prior to accepting books for sale.
If you want to read a political treatise on how great the liberal political view is in this country select a book on politics not a mystery that pushes that view in your face. I have been able to read other books by Palmer,although his political leanings are obvious,because his emphasis has always been on medical issues. This time it seems his primary issue is on left leaning politics. If you dislike Ronald Reagan, are a proponent of big government and think socialized medicine is great -- then this is your book otherwise select a real novel.
