No. The audio volume seems to go up and down, making for a very frustrating listening experience, especially in an environment with some background noise, such as a car.
Not unless I can sample it first. His narration was fine, but the quality of the audio file was not.
Can't believe this made it out into the wild like this
Yes, excellent story, and very refreshing to have a book not written from the mold so many other detectives spring from.
Main character is not your typical hero, as in many books written by US authors, and is all the more human and recognizable for it
Apparently (according to the narrator), all people in Denmark speak with an accent much like Arnold Schwarzenegger. This really detracts from the story. Why accents are necessary at all is not clear to me.
Accents are not necessary; readers will understand the story is set in Denmark without the heavy-handed Austrian accents. But if you want to do accents, you should at least find out how to properly pronounce 'Peugeot' :-p
The Forgotten has way too many cliches in it. While the story is fairly entertaining, the characters are one-dimensional and predictable. I started rooting for the bad guys to take Puller out so we won't have to read another of his adventures.
My favorite character in this genre is Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch, and while he has gone through some awful episodes, he has recently picked up the pace again. I hope David Baldacci can do the same.
Their performance is perfectly acceptable, but not outstanding.
Not if it isn't vastly improved over this episode.
