    Two years ago, Robin Monarch was a top level CIA operative—perhaps the best they had when it came to black bag operations. Then one day, in the middle of an operation, with his team around him in the field, Monarch walked away, leaving his old life and friends behind without a word of explanation. Now this ex-soldier, ex-operative, and orphan with a murky past is a thief, stealing from the super-rich and has surfaced in St. Tropez.

    If you could sum up Rogue in three words, what would they be?

    Masterful, intriguing, actionpacked.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rogue?

    There are plenty of memorable moments, but of the many I can think of, the dropping off of the one who caused the whole mess, in "el ano".


    What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I could listen to Gurner read the NYS vehicle and traffic law. Jeff excells at creating the voices of the characters and just has an energy about telling the story. The guy is a narrating genius.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Something over dramatic like "Rogue; Thief of thieves"

    In a world of conflicted loyalties, rapidly diminishing human power, and the possibility that anyone can be a spy, what's at stake is nothing less than human freedom's last hope to survive the technology revolution.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This book rocks just like its first part ""Daemon". The tech and AWESOME characters make for an amazing, captivating and thrilling story that just sucks you in and leaves you wanting more.


    What other book might you compare Freedom (TM) to and why?

    Definetly I would have to compare it to Daemon, by the the same author.


    What about Jeff Gurner’s performance did you like?

    Jeff just translates the story and book fantastically. He puts the right emotion into each character, leaving you with the sense that you've come to KNOW these characters as if they were more than just part of a story.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book made me want to cry when I finished it because I didn't want it to end! The story line however DOES bring you to moments when you could just reach in and beat one or two of the characters, but it also just as well presents characters that make you wish you could take them out and buy them a cup of coffee for some conversation.

    Thousands of autonomous computer programs, or daemons, make our networked world possible, running constantly in the background of our lives, trafficking e-mail, transferring money, and monitoring power grids. For the most part, daemons are benign, but the same can't always be said for the people who design them.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to ANYONE, fan of tech or not. The story is compelling and full of great characters that follow an amazing story line.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    My favorite character would have to be John Ross... Mysterious, shady, but apparently a tech force to be reckoned with.


    What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Gurner just translates and gives the story a dynamic feel that would be difficult to obtain by just reading the book. His ability to give each character their own identifying voices is superb.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    There were moments where I laughed, but there were a few "oh, my mouth is hanging open for 20 minutes" moments while listening...


    Any additional comments?

    Great book, great story. Suarez hits it out of park on this one.
