No, this was not a very good book or performance
The story line seemed to be a setup for a statement about medical research and business. I don't usually mind a little political bias in books, but there was far too many details that made a statement without contributing to the story. The epilogue was particularly transparent. I get these books because I enjoy medical thrillers, not to hear what the authors feelings are about patenting medical procedures and techniques, although I do agree with the statement, this wasn't the place I wanted to see it.
I feel like there were several elements of the story that were left out to make room for the non-related details-The nanny was killed and that was it-the orphaned child that was to be Ben's responsibility, Danny, and several others were just left hanging.
The narrators cadence was extremely distracting.
If you have a book with a number of Spanish names and language, find a narrator that can do an adequate job or don't try. I couldn't get all the way through the book listening to the narrator use a stereotyped Spanish accent in the 1st few chapters
I love Robert Adams, but not with this narration. I read the horse clan series as a boy and loved them all
That is a tough question, I listened to alot of books. I like the series and will get the next book as soon as I can
I like Jeff, he is a reluctant leader that makes me think about issues of responsibility and consequences
He does well, differentiating between voices and emotions
Great storyline and the author puts characters in realistic situations. The story is fast paced and seems like a much shorter book
I am not sure, they would have to really like this type of thing
It took so long to get to the meat of the story and I am still not sure what the point was. The characters were very well developed but, the story was a little thin.
I have read few series that allows a character to grow the way Val does in this series. The series moves Val through distinct stages of development as a man during a time of constant war.
I also really enjoy how the author weaves in details of parts of the US that I have lived in, which adds another layer of interest. Listening to the author describe the south, northwest and the midwest brings a new perception of the places that I am living or have lived
My favorite character is Val, but Val and Ahn-Kha have a great storyline that keeps me into the storyline. The relationship is about loyalty and friendship not unlike Frodo and Samwise, but more mature and cynical.
The narrator does a great job with the voices and accents. It helps keeps the characters straight and adds a nuance to the story
I don't usually write reviews for books, but I was so disappointed with this book that I had to write something. I got through about the first 3 hours, which was basically a rant about the evils of liberal ideals. It was written like a journal and had little to no story line. I have always enjoyed this authors books in the past and that makes this even more disappointing.
