I love this series... when I saw this audiobook I bought it immediately!! I still would have bought it even if I had read the reviews because I strongly believe in making my own judgment calls....but, they were right.
I made it through 2 1/2 hours w/ 7+ to go, but it's just too unbearable. These stories were just too short to really add anything to the storyline. Plus, unless you are a major fan & have read every single book in this series you simply won't get it.
And I have read & listened to every book, some of them numerous times and though I know the characters, this book doesn't go anywhere.
I love this author & the narrators, but you can easily skip this one.
On the other hand, this audiobook is very cheap, so it would be worth it.
Even though this particular audiobook is not my cup of tea, I don't regret getting it.
I just wish I knew that it was a compilation of lots & lots of short stories and these blurbs that are more like a stream of thoughts put onto paper.
Anyways, best for you to be the judge. 😉
Please, don't judge this series by this audiobook... I got hooked on this series (in paperback form) about a year ago and let me tell ya, this audiobook was like nails on a chalkboard for me. The narrator talks soooo sloooowwwwly that it actually caused me to speed it up to
1 1/2X...not that it made it much better.
I love this series... I own them all and have reread them all couple of times so I know it it not the author's fault~ I did notice that the rest of the series has a different narrator so maybe those are better.
Honestly, I finally just shut this audiobook off and chose another one to listen to. I'm sooo glad I got this on the Book 1 of a series sale and only paid $5 bucks or I would have been so bummed!!
I soooo encourage everyone to always listen to the sample before purchasing audiobooks... I didn't this time and soooo regret it!
Wow~ I would have to say yes, but this is one very intense story...at least for me it was. Yes, I am a girl...yeah, girls are a little more emotional, but even manly men are allowed to get teary eyed over the conclusion of this one.
What can I say, it's an intriguing & compeling story. The writing & narraration is so well done that you feel like you are right there living it or that you are at least being told the story by someone who actually experienced a real situation. It doesn't really have that
The narration was so amazing, but I have to say... holy moly, there is one scene with the Dr. when she(he) says
I had planned to, but I just couldn't do it....it was just too intense. I had to take 2 seperate breaks which is very unlike me to be honest. I usually like to just plow through from start to finish.... however, it is now 4:30 a.m. because once I got back into it I couldn't turn it off because it got so intense. Then, I had to write this review while it was still fresh in my thoughts....not that I will be forgetting this one any time soon.
This story is about the ugly up-close and personal side of terrorism. But it is truely about bravery, patriotism, honor, loyalty, and the ultimate sacrifice.
I highly recommend this audiobook~
Awesome narrater!!! No way do I have the time to sit & read a whole book so audiobooks are the best, but then to get such a great narrater....very nice!
Nope, first one~. Awesome performance!
