This was my first W.E.B. Griffin book and I absolutely loved it. It was similar to the t.v. series “M-A-S-H” where you got to know the characters, their heroics and their failures in their military and personal lives. I loved the character Lowell who was a rich kid that was drafted into the Army and in his teens.
The book gives a great image of military culture and the brotherhood of soldiers. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series! So glad I found this author and this book.
Eric G. Dove was a great reader/performer too!
I liked this murder mystery. The author, John MacDonald, did a great job of characterization in letting me get to know the main character, Travis McGee. I liked how he lives on a houseboat in Florida - great setting. Even though Travis is willing to help others who cannot help themselves, he is still a James Bond type of character who will intimidate and torture if need be. This helped to keep my interest throughout the plot and made it a great mystery. It is hard to believe that this modern day suspense was written 47 years ago!
A very entertaining book and I already plan on getting the second book in the series, "Nightmare in Pink."
Excellent narration by Robert Petkoff.
The author, William Kent Krueger, did a great job in developing all of the characters extremely well. I really liked the main character Cork and his human frailties. The story setting in Aurora, Minnesota in the vicinity of an Indian Reservation was very intriguing.
I can definitely see how his debut novel won the Anthony Award and I look forward to reading the second book in the series, "Boundary Waters."
The narrator, David Chandler, was excellent.
I highly recommend this book.
There was nothing really great about this book. The main character, Virgil Flowers, is not really developed enough for me to like him or care about him, or want to find out what his future would be in the next book.
I also hated the way that Virgil Flowers was trying to be a writer on the side in the plot. It was ridiculous how Virgil would work on his story every couple of chapters and you'd have to read the segment he'd written. Stupid. Who cares? I thought it was also ridiculous the rock band t-shirts that the author described him wearing every day that he changed clothes. It added nothing to the character development.
Narrator, Eric Conger, did a great job narrating.
I did not really like the contrived and unbelievable story line, and found the narration by Dick Hill to be way too dramatic! As I listened to it, I couldn't make up my mind whether it was because of the narration that I found it so unlikeable, or whether it was Lee Child's writing.
The plot is so unrealistic and the townsfolk of Margrave are so preposterous that my enthusiasm of reading future Jack Reacher books waned. Too many murders, coincidences and unrealistic town of Margrave, Georgia really ruined it for me.
I was definitely unimpressed by the main character, Jack Reacher. I will also think twice before I purchase an audible read by the narrator, Dick Hill. TOO DRAMATIC.
This is another great book in the Matthew Shardlake series. I loved it.
I enjoy how the author, C. J. Sansom, takes you back in time. His characters in the book are excellent. I felt sorry for Shardlake in this story because he seems to always take care of his personal friends and acquaintances, and their problems, but doesn't take care of himself.
I think he realizes this in the story, and I look forward to reading the next one in the series, Lamentation (6th book) to see what adventure happens to him next, and how his character will develop.
Once again, excellent narration by Steven Crossley!
Nope, not my kind of story. It was too teen oriented with adult themes. It was definitely a teen type of story about a teen guy realizing that he was gay. I feel they should have labeled it as a "young adult gay fiction."
Furthermore, I felt a little insulted the way that the author portrayed the female characters in the book. I absolutely hated the way the the narrator, Luke Daniels, used a high pitched irritating voice when he read the female lines.
The end of the story is open for a follow-up novel, however, I am confident I will not want to read it.
I did not really like this book and made myself finish it in hopes that it would get better. It never got better for me. It seemed sort of "stupid" or "corny" or "soap opera"; just not my kind of book.
It was poor on character development. The author, Glenn Cooper, focused on the main character, Will, and did not develop the other characters at all. A lot of times the author added details to the story that were totally unnecessary as if the reader was dumb, or he needed to add to his word count.
Even though the plot was very good and had a lot of potential, the story drags on and on. If written with better character development and less wordy detail, it could have potentially been an excellent story.
The narrator was mediocre, however, that could have been as a result of the book he was reading.
I enjoyed traveling back in time to the late 1950's. It seemed like a place I would like to move back into and stay, if only . . . it didn't have its dark side.
This book is definitely a page turner. The reader will want to read to the end to see what is going to happen to Jake and Sadie and the other characters that I liked in the story.
I liked the mixture of science fiction with history and JFK's assassination. I wished the story could have continued much longer!
Excellent narration by Craig Wasson.
Not only could it have been much better, but the trilogy should have been written as one book. The three books did not develop the story like it should have, and did not develop the characters very well. It was a great dystopian future kind of theme, but it could have been developed much deeper.
The book leaves you hanging in the end and I'm not sure if the author, Blake Crouch, did that so that he can now write a new trilogy connected to the "Wayward Pines" story.
The narrator, Paul Michael Garcia, did a great job in narration of the book.
I enjoyed this book which reminded me of a James Bond type of thriller. The action scenes are excellent even though the injuries sustained by the Gray Man were a bit much to believe that he could physically continue on to the next attack. It's a fictional thriller, so why not?
I look forward to reading the next book in the series, "On Target" published in 2010. I hope that in the next book he can develop the main character, Court Gentry, so that we can get to know him better than just a one dimensional action hero.
The narrator, Jay Snyder, did a great job of narrating except for the voice of the little girl. I don't feel it was necessary for him to try to do a childish type of voice.
Overall, a great action book to read.
