I have always enjoyed Elizabeth George books so I kept listening, thinking it would get better. It did not. The whole story is about siblings who are deserted by their mother and left on their aunts doorstep. The aunt was not equipped to handle the problems of teenage sex, drugs and gangs. The book had no redeeming qualities. I can get this kind of drama on the nightly news.
With younger and younger children using iPads and other devices, this short tale is a purr-fect listen. Kitten Diana is curious about everything while her more experienced friend Cyrus explains to her the proper way to behave. Once a tempting tree is placed in the house, loaded with shiny objects, caution is thrown to the wind.
In a subtle way, this kitten story can relate to the relationship between an enthusiastic toddler and an older sibling.
It made me smile and wish for a fleeting time that I could have my own Diana and Cyrus.
I think Robin Cook must have some insider information because this story is right out of the news.
The one thing I did not like was that I knew for most of the book what was going to happen. The main character was too slow to pick up on the clues.
The main character was my favorite. She was a combination of world weary and trusting. Even when the system failed her she never lost her courage and spunk.
The overall narration was good but there were a couple of rough spots. I loved the accent and expression the narrator read with.
The author threw in an intriguing twist towards the end of the book that ended a whole new level of evil and greed.
It's all about Jet. Nice to read a thriller with a strong female lead who is also likeable.
All of them.
Excellent read, really liked the narrator. I look forward to more audio from Russell Blake
No, I don't repeat books but if I did, this would be one I repeat.
It was so action packed it would be impossible to choose one.
Jet! I loved the narration by Braden Wright.
Absolutely! Fortunately for me, I am able to pick up quickly after an interruption.
My husband's favorite authors are Brad Thor, Vince Flynn (so sad he is gone) and Daniel Silva. He will be adding a new author to his list, Russell Blake.
Just listened to this book for the second time. In the tradition of Joel Rossenburg, some of the actions and political scenarios that seemed fiction in the first read are now becoming reality.
I liked the edgey tension mixed with the story of redemption.
The lamb in the thicket moment.
The Patriot because he is giving his all for our country.
I can't wait to read Thunder From Heaven but know I will need to read it again in a year to see how much of the fiction becomes reality.
