I always look forward to the new Steven Berry book and I think Scott Brick is a great reader. But King's Deception just didn't do it for me. I suspect that Berry was 1/2 way through writing the book when Ghadaffi was killed, so he had to do the story as a recollection, which was a distraction early on.
I just never got into the story, but I also don't care much about British Royalty or history.
I slogged through to the end, but it definitely put me to sleep several times.
The least interesting part was the arcane British history.
Scott was overly dramatic at times.
This is a wonderfully told, light hearted "Biblical" story without being sacrilegious. Laugh out loud funny and I could certainly visualize the people and the places.
Similar to Dogma but without the edge.
Fisher did a great job as the reader.
Of course, who wouldn't want to have dinner with Jesus H. Christ, but I'd want BIF to come along too.
A great Audiobook. Don't let the length deter you. It has great pace all the way through!
For me, this is a rare case where the abridged version would have been better. The book was just took too long to get to the finale, and I thought there was way too much detail with the dialog.
I would say it would be worth 5 hours of my time, but not 10!
