    (1156)

    After narrowly surviving his last operation, Gabriel Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, has taken refuge behind the walls of the Vatican, where he is restoring one of Caravaggio's greatest masterpieces. But early one morning he is summoned to St. Peter's Basilica by Monsignor Luigi Donati, the all-powerful private secretary to his Holiness Pope Paul VII. The body of a beautiful woman lies broken beneath Michelangelo's magnificent dome.

    Audiophile says: "When will Gabriel retire?"
    "Weak story line."

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is not up to Silva's usual efforts. It's a very contrived and boring story.

    When a woman is kidnapped off a Chicago street in broad daylight, Jack Reacher's in the wrong place at the wrong time. He's kidnapped with her. Chained together and racing across America toward an unknown destination, they're at the mercy of a group of men demanding an impossible ransom. Because Reacher's female companion is worth more than he imagines. Now he has to save them both - from the inside out - or die trying....

    Would you try another book from Lee Child and/or Jonathan McClain?

    Yes, but a different narrator. McClain actually is a good reader, but his impersonations of the characters are awful - and very distracting.


    Would you recommend Die Trying to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. Because of the reader.


    How could the performance have been better?

    If McClain had just read the book and left off the character impersonations.


    Did Die Trying inspire you to do anything?

    To not listen to any more books read by Jonathan McClain.

    Detective John Corey now faces his toughest assignment yet: the pursuit and capture of the world's most dangerous terrorist -- a young Arab known as "The Lion" who has baffled a federal task force and shows no sign of stopping in his quest for revenge against the American pilots who bombed Libya and killed his family.

    John Robertson says: "What happened to Scott Brick?!!"
    "What happened to Scott Brick?"
    Overall

    I usually very much enjoy Scott Brick's reading. He was perfect in The Lion's Game. But for some reason, he greatly slowed down his naration in The Lion to the point that I hardly recognize him. It is very annoying. Because of the reader, I would not listen to this book.
