The obvious was overlooked. The editor should be fired. For anyone that is into to the mystery/suspense would have seen the "flaws" in this book after the first few chapters. In addition the narrator [S. Brick] was a joke. It was like listening to a cartoon character. However, the plot and story line was good enough to feel like "I wasn't ripped off" in buying this book.
..........look, you know that Elmore Leonard is one of the best, if not the best, story tellers of all time. In addition, his books are perfect for audible. But, the narrator was okay but not great. What I did not like was the ending. Then again you may think it is a great ending. Anyway, take the time to listen to this book, it's worth the time.
Like his other books, Lee Child does a great job developing both the plot and the characters. That’s the only good thing I can say about 61 Hours. Everything else is below standards. It’s almost like he or his editor didn’t care.
...you will most likely give this a three star or maybe four stars. I cannot listen to Scott Brick. It is like finger nails on a blackboard. Unfortunately, I got this book without checking the narrator. Brad Meltz is a very good writer. So, I listened and couldn't stop because I needed to know how it ended.
I really enjoyed most of his other books but this one was disappointing. It had multiple plots that were just boring and predictable.
The only thing good was the narration. This book is a waste of time unless you like to listen to the “f” word, silly drawn out scenes and a plot that was dumb. Why did I listen to the whole thing? Again, good narration.
I must have purchased dozens of Stewart Woods and I just do not believe he wrote this one. Not to his standards.
Save your money. This could have been a fair book if it were narated by someone else, anyone else, a good book if it was edited by someone else, anyone else, and a great book if written by someone else; Lee Child, Stewart Woods etc. It had a plot that kept me listening. However, I just got bored with the author and naration.
If it were not for the wonderful narration I would have stopped listen to this book after an hour or so. I selected this book after listening to Jodi Picoult's My Sister’s Keeper. NOW THAT WAS AN OUTSTANDING BOOK. However, if you are into religion and some interesting twists and turns, this book may be for you.
I was very disappointed. This gifted writer let his need to enlist his penchant for an excessive amount of detailed sexual encounters destroy what would have been an outstanding fiction/history novel. Be prepared to "fast-forward" through the smut.
