It was my first time reading a David Morrell novel, and I was pleasantly surprised by his action packed love story. The main character, Decker, and all of his supporting characters took me on a roller coaster ride of terrorist bombings, mob assassinations, and unexpected betrayals. The narration was great, and added to the excitement of the story.
This story was boring, plain and simple. There was too much mush and not enough grit. The villain was pathetic, and I mean that literally, and the victims were ghosts stories that nobody cared about. I missed the mystery, and excitement of not knowing who was going to be killed next. The dead were already dead, and the murderer was already locked up. I don't know why the author thought this story would be interesting. I like mystery murder books because they tell a story of mystery and murder. This one did not meet my expectations at all. If this had been the first time I listened to a Dallas novel, I would not buy another. Hopefully the next book in the series will redeem the author.
Who knew the life of a navy seal team could be so mundane and boring. The story of seal team seven is overly saturated with protocol information, combat jargon, and personality analysis. Unfortunately, very little attention is given to the actual mission the story is suppose to be about. As the story progressed, I felt more and more like I was participating in a social studies class rather than a navy seal adventure. The action was scarce and far between. The dialogue was corny, and read too much like a newsreel. On a positive note, it was informative, and would have been interesting if I'd been looking to read a non-fiction story.
The client is a teen in search for answers about his father’s disappearance and King and Maxwell moved mountains to get them for him. It was an exciting story with surprising twist and unpredictable events. The narrator did an excellent job of giving each character a distinct voice so that it was easy to tell who was speaking. It was a great read.
It was a decent story with interesting characters, but I would have liked it better if Ryan Jr. was more proactive. There was too much attention given to Ryan Sr. His involvement made the reading slow at times. The narration was great but the story wasn't as good as Locked On or Threat Vector.
It was a story that I didn't want to end. The characters of the Camel Club, Oliver Stone and Will Robie made the plot interesting, and the narrator was absolutely great. I found myself sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for what was going to happen next. This is a good one.
This was my first time reading anything from this author. The story line was weak and confusing at times. Some of the character relationships were meaningless to the story, and the ending was anticlimactic. I was bored waiting for the punch line, and when it finally happened, I didn't get it. I hope his other stuff is more interesting.
The story is filled with the sentiment and hardcore excitement I've come to expect from Jack Reacher stories. The connection with the army was unexpected and kept me on the edge of my seat. Lee Child didn't disappoint, and Dick Hill was fantastic as always. It is a must read.
Dallas is still kick ass on the job. Knowing who the murderer is from the start adds salt to the excitement of the story. It was an interesting twist in storytelling that absolutely worked! I didn't want the story to end and I can't wait for the next one in the series.
The character, Tequila, is an unusual hero that I found myself rooting for in every turn of the page. The novel carried the excitement and suspense that I've come to expect from Konrath, and Luke Daniels narrative was exciting and allowed me to easily differentiate the characters voices. As the tag says, it is Revenge served straight up. I have purchased all of the series, and I'm looking forward to listening to them.
