Yes, it's decent enough if my friend wants to pass the time.
Not one particulate thing.
Yes, it's exciting enough.
Sort of but I wasn't "on the edge". Plus, I listen while driving. :)
No. It's a good book, but there are other books I want to read.
No, but it was decent enough.
Don't have one.
In a world . . .
I didn't read the print version. It's unabridged so I assume so.
I hope this becomes a series.
It's the same. The fact that it's read makes it a little different, but the book is unabridged. I didn't read the print version.
I don't have a comparison.
I love the job John Rubinstein does with the various people. It's like I'm listening to different narrators.
Stop creating plots that are not feasible. He was forcing the story to fit the plot. It was ridiculous.
Stop making up dumb plot points to fit his story. Also, stop having all the characters say "right" at the end of each sentence. I couldn't count, but it happened at least every other page. Also, all the characters shrugged. It was annoying. If you think I'm not correct, others have noticed this as well.
I would have scrapped all of it and started over. I will not be listening to this series. Apparently, the next book is more of the same.
It was a waste of my point.
Good story with a few problems.
I was wondering what in the heck happened to Morgan's girlfriend. There were things mentioned that happened before Morgan and she reunited, and it was left hanging. Maybe it will be addressed in a later book.
He does a good job varying the voices.
I'll keep listening to the Morgan books, but I'm a little displeased that the Private series seems to be all over the place.
The story and the narrator.
Comoran Strike. He's a mess like me.
There are too many.
Not one in particular. Comoran is an enduring character.
I hope Robert Glenister is the narrator for the 2nd installment.
It's the same. It's unabridged.
It is a good book, but it didn't seem to carry the last story forward. Joe Pickett was at a crossroads - especially concerning the overreach of the federal government and state government to a certain extent - but he seemed to digress. Anyway, still a good book.
Not one in particular.
Ralph Roberts. He is a fair and honest man and keeps his bargains.
Atropos. Because he represents chaos. People make life plans - Atropos thwarts them fir no good reason other than a certain random mark that some people display.
". . . Just a dirty son-of-a-b****!" Audible said to make the title catching. That is just one of Tuco's famous lines from The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. Eli Wallach played Tuco. Okay, enough said. There is a lot of complaints about the music for this audiobook. I bought it with some trepidation thinking it would be horrible. One complaint was that the music between chapters drowned out the voice of Wallach. Although this is sort of true for one chapter transition (you can still hear him) - it wasn't hard for me to hear him otherwise. The music is weird, but it's kind of ZIggy Stardust weird. I think it's just the strings of an electric guitar that someone is running a pick up and down. That makes an interesting noise. Yes, it's weird. But weird electronic noises coming from electric instruments is interesting. Plus, it's not overpowering. It adds a nice touch to the other-worldliness and weirdness that Roberts is experiencing because of his insomnia. Although I wouldn't say this is King's "best" - his marginal books are still a heck of a lot better than anything that's out there. He's the consummate entertainer. It's hard to explain. Although some people would describe his work as just mindless entertainment, his stories always touch me. He seems to perfectly convey the human condition. Anyway, this book is worth a listen.
