Yes, I actually adore Flynn, unfortunately this was not one of his better works. However, I will carefully read feedback comments before I buy again.
NO! The narrator failed miserably in depicting the persona of Mitch Rapp as well as Irene Kennedy. Instead of the competent, husky and sexy character who exudes confidence as well as a human side, this narrator made Rapp sound like a whiny whipped man who quit doing what he loves because of a woman. It was ridiculously cliche.He killed the excitement, attraction and intrigue of Rapp, and the confident strong character of Irene Kennedy.
The entire romance build up of Rapp and Anna was over the top. If I wanted a romance novel, I would have bought one. The character of Rapp was greatly diminished by his subservience to Anna.
I have read nearly every Flynn books and have come to expect a distint Rapp character. This book did not come even close, it was boring with way too many details and the narrator was too whiny.
Absolutely! This story has so many twists and turns.....keeps you wondering and presents many thought provoking concepts.
The narration was such that it brought every character to life in a unique way...great job!
Everything! Too many great things to write, in a nutshell...he brings this book to life.
Yes. Enough said. :)
The story was ok but unbalanced. The characters were not portrayed well so it was difficult to follow at times.
Actually it helped clarify the need for a legal system reboot. SES should not be a condition in obtaining good legal representation. No wonder people don't trust the "justice" system since it works on the basis of power.
It's enlightening and depressing all rolled up into one neat little package.
Everything! He lacked the ability to define each character in a manner befitting the author's intent and he fell way short of keeping the listener interested. His voice inflection was awful, he came off as arrogant and bored. I would not recommend listening to this narrator....ever!
The first two books were pretty good with the exception of consistently portraying women in a negative light, and the narration was good. This book fell short on all accounts.
I've read several of David Ellis books and this one was no stunner. As usual a lawyer is being prosecuted, a sexual affair of infidelity is front and center, and the storyline was all over the place... difficult to follow. The narrators are wonderful but the plot did not give them much to work with. No more David Ellis for me.
I've never listened to this author before....my mistake. If you enjoy intriguing twists, descriptive action that actually places you inside the narrative and no "James Bond gets the girl" nonsense, then you'll love this book. And as always, the narrator is fantastic at bringing each character to life.
This is the sixth David Ellis book I have listened to and as expected, the lawyer becomes a suspect and there is always a dysfunctional romance that distracts from a potentially great thriller/suspense novel. Dick Hill continues to be an excellent narrator which is the one asset that helped me get through this book. Time to move on to a new author.
This was a very nice surprise. I decided to try out this author and narrator, and can honestly say I am not disappointed. Both do an excellent job at pulling the listener down a winding road of interest, intrigue, thrills and more. Highly recommended!
C J Box is a very unique yet wonderful author who is perfectly paired with his narrator Mr Guidall. No one else could possible bring Joe Pickett and Nate alive as well as these two greats!! Thank you and please don't stop here!
Mr. Gilstrap is a master at what he writes and the narrator completes the package. You will not be disappointed by this well written well read book!
Dick Wolf strikes again! Well written to capture and retain the listeners attention! And the narrator breaths life into the excellent storyline!
Once again Sullivan brings it to the reader at a pace that's guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat! The narrator does a great job at bringing each characters personality to life and reveals the storyline in a manner designed to please. Well done!!
