The book lost steam in latter chapters.
Liked the book, faced paced with tension around every corner, thought the story lost credibility in closing chapters otherwise would be an overall 5-Star!
Clancy's research is 2nd to none. Combined with his story telling and Lou Diamond Phillips narration this book is a Winner!!
No, but close :)
Joe O'Loughlin the psychologist/ investigator
Not what you expect-better.
Love Sean Barrett's work.
Book 1, 2 & 3 They're all excellent, Carofiglio and Barrett are perfectly paired .
He's a master narrator, one of the best I've listened to!
Yes, couldn't do that but did manage to finish in one week.
I'm a big fan of this series, hope Carofiglio writes book-5 and Barrett records it.
YES, a must read for anyone with a creative bone in their body or anyone who even thinks they might have one, this is a landmark piece of work!
I loved it all, hard to pinpoint, George Guidall presents Pressfield's insightful material with a divine-like resonance. I've never heard the notion of "resistance" defined the way Pressfield explains it, wonderful!
Every moment of it, he is a master narrator who has honed his skill to a fine point and his voice is perfect for the material.
We're all divine with innate talent, it's up to us to defeat "Resistance" and bring it on!
This should be required listening for all students, it would change the world! :)
No, I thought the story had it's moments and I did finish the book but I found the narrator's voice a bit annoying especially on the female characters. He was, however, technically professional with good pacing and sustained energy.
The technical descriptions of military hardware and weapons. Least interesting was the improbable thesis of the story, it stretched the imagination beyond good fiction.
Energetic, Weak, Nasal,
Story, Voice, Extraordinary
Claudia, loved the martial arts scene and her handling of the ending crises, breathtaking.
Guido, Barrett is perfect for the part, he and Carofiglio are unbeatable!
If you want to choose one book, one writer, one narrator to begin your journey into audiobooks you couldn't do better than this amazing legal thriller, I recommend it without qualification!!!
Absolutely, Sean Barrett puts you right in the scene with the characters, the second last chapter had me on the edge of my seat, couldn't take the earphones off.
Towards the end when Marni reverts back to Malcolm and attacks Owen.
They're all good, he is a pro. This is right up there.
Michael Robotham and Sean Barrett make a great team, hope they collaborate on future projects.
On scale of 1 to 5 about a 4.
Nuance, Asian subtleties you would miss off the written page,
A thrilling Japanese Romance
So far #1 Sean Barrett's narration was a work of art. His diction, pacing, pronunciations et al were wonderful.He did have a good story to work with but he made it sing for this listener. I very much enjoyed the descriptions of Italian jurisprudence and Sean's sophisticated manner, BRAVO!!
Yes, the flash-backs were small stories of their own each with an intriguing soryline.
Without a doubt it was the protagonist, Guido Guerrieri.
It did both but probably more of the former.
This is a very sophisticated legal thriller with a thoroughly engageing main character, hope to hear Sean Barrett perform Guido in future books.
Yes, as long as they liked fast paced international crime thrillers like I do!
When Rapp shoots the Libyan oil minister which drives the story.
Really liked the book but felt it's credibility was stretched a bit thin in closing chapters. If not for that would have given it 5-Stars. George Guidall's narration was superb!
