I made it through a couple hours of listening then had to abandon the book. It was a lot of inane babbling between the characters with a story line that falls flat on its proverbial face.
Probably not. The story continuity doesn't work. Nick is shipped home before he is deployed to Vietnam but when he goes to investigate his story he is familiar with his surroundings. Jack, who also has never been there, seems to be a local expert. Right down to knowing the language. The story is set in the 1960's but yet they use digital cameras. Really?
No, it's like listening to Columbo trying to narrate a story. Terribly irritating.
This story had potential to be riveting but, between the poor performance and the lack of attention to detail, it falls flat on it's face.
Near the top.
I was drawn in from the first paragraph, the entire book was memorable
This series was one of the best I've listened to. The author captivates the listener from the beginning and holds your attention to the very end. Highly recommended!
Warning: Do not listen to this audio book while driving or operating heavy machinery as it may cause drowsiness and possible unexpected periods of deep sleep. On the up side, it is more effective than Lunista. The elements for a good story are all there but this ship refuses to leave the harbor.
Although the story line is captivating, the overall timber of the story is dark and depressing. This is not a "feel good" story by any means. Alcoholism seems to be the driving force, followed by guilt, despair and lies. I finished the book feeling horrible that 5 peoples lives could be this miserable and hoping this story wasn't a reflection of the author's own life.
