I'm afraid the reader Frederick Davidson(David Case) made it impossible to complete this book. There were many words slurred and impossible to understand. It's as if this reader has now had a stroke or some other debilitating speech impediment. I feel compelled to write this review because I am such a fan of audiobooks and audible and I would hate to think someone would buy this book and get turned off from audiobooks and or audible. Audible please consider removing this book from your Library - you have so many wonderful books, why taint it.
Normally I do not like short stories, however this book is a collection of short stories that go from good to incredible. The Emperor and The Careful Man are stories that make life worth living no matter how rough life is going.
Excellent reader. So so story. Didn't grab me. I will not listen to it again.
Any Vince Flynn book is far better.
This is Jack Higgins first book and in my opinion his best. I consider it a classic in that I will want to listen to it again and again. Written not too long after WW II it tells an interesting story that could have been. It will appeal to not only WWII fans but to anyone who likes a good story with suspense, a little humor, history and even common philosophy.
The narrator was great for this book and really adds to its listening pleasure.
Readers will want more of Jack Higgins books but beware none are as good as this one. They range from good all the way down to real pot boilers. Read all reviews carefully.
I really enjoyed this book and I found I couldn't stop listening even after I had finished my drive. The story was great as was the humor. Grover does an excellent job of narration.
I'm onto his second in the series now.
Another great book in a great series. George Guidall is of course the icing on the cake as a perfect narrator for this book.
I really enjoyed this book. The narrator was a perfect match for the book although I'm not familiar with him otherwise. If you are a Vince Flynn fan then you almost certainly really like this book.
A very nice short family Sci Fi story. Narration was excellent. I will be buying more of Orson Scott Card's books.
I found this too long and drawn out. The reader was excellent and it does have the SH ambience throughout. If you just can't get enough SH and have already gone through all his Conan Doyle books then this book is for you.
In my opinion the best reader of the Conan Doyle SH books is David Timson. They are also very well dramatized by the BBC. I believe these are all available from audible.
Another superb story from Vince Flynn with a perfect reader. I find it amazing how the book grabbed my attention from start to finish and was a sheer pleasure to listen to.
I notice a person from FL gave it only three stars but I see they never give more than three stars to any book - must be the Sun getting to them.
Another wonderful book by Vince Flynn. Very enjoyable - a book I found myself sitting in the car in the driveway to complete a section. The Narrator again was superb. This writer is just so good consistently he amazes me - onto his next book.
