I seriously had no interest in finishing the book. I usually make myself finish, but I just couldn't. The main character is a man and the woman does a poor job trying to sound like a man....for some reason this really bugged me...sorry.
Yep - will never purchase another
Nothing - couldn't stand it
Wasted a credit on this for sure....don't bother
It was ok, not my best listen, not the worst.
It was ok, a bit slow at times, too much explanation of what people were wearing when it had no real impact on the story and just seemed to fill space with some details that just weren't worth knowing.
I didn't like his performance - Christopher Lane does a much better job. I found the J. Charles didn't hold my attention as well, I had to rewind and listen to several parts as my mind wandered away from his narration.
Sure, I do like the main character for the most part. I enjoy getting to know them and watch them mature and change.
I feel this author does a good job of plot writing, but I take issue with how he portrays women in his books, we aren't all nuts. I feel that he makes the women seem trite and in this one a bit crazy and too emotional at times. I would like to see him portray a strong and confident woman in a role with the main character.
I enjoyed the story, but sometimes too much explanation and I would lose the momentum of the action. The reader is ok, but again slow.......
Understanding the intriguing plot was fun, because of excessive explanations I tended to lose interest at times and would have to replay a segment as I just knew I missed something.
Read a bit more upbeat
Could have been a bit shorter.....
Get another narrator, I know many people like George Guidall but he sounds like he has a mouth full of saliva all the time and he can be difficult to understand.....don't think I can listen to this series - too much spit!
Someone with a clearer voice and younger. I find that many of these books I like are read by him and I just can't get through another series with him reading.
I feel like this series may be good from other reviews I've read but as I stated before I can't get through the series with this narrator, it is to laborious for me to listen.
Really enjoying the Mitch Rapp Series, but this narrator was so hard to listen to that it really has ruined the story. He makes everyone sound so whiny and miserable. It is awful, the story is good but no more of this narrator. I struggle with George Guidall, but I'll take him back over this now.....
Hard to tell as the narration was so poorly done the story didn't come through as well as it could have...
I liked Nick Sullivan, but after this narration I would even go back to George Guidall gladly.
The narration makes it tough to listen to for very long....
Suspenseful, intriguing, quick
I don't focus on one moment of a book like this there were many.
No, but I like him. He is clear when he reads, maybe some of his intonations are a bit over the top (like the Dallas King character) but as many people like George Guidal I found Nick Sullivan's voice to be very clear, Guidal sounds like he has marbles in his mouth to me and I can listen to him but get frustrated when I have to replay as I can't hear whim as well.
Good and quick listen -
It was an ok book, hard to listen to the reader.
I really didn't like the reader, couldn't listen to him on my jambox, he sounded like he had marbles in his mouth and then on my computer, changing the EQ to spoken voice it was a bit better, he just wasn't the right reader for me. I've read other people love him, count me out. I am enjoying the series, but have to suffer through 3 more of Guidall's performance to stay on track - ack what an awful reader for these books.
Other than why they used this guy as the reader - it was ok.
I have enjoyed all the Alan Gregory Mysteries, but in this one the reader, Dick Hill, read the female teen's voice so low and I really had trouble hearing those parts and they were key to the story. I tried turning the volume up and down but it was always a bit difficult to hear when he was doing her voice.....
He made it hard to hear the teen girl's voice.....
Good suspense and characters.
Yes, wondering what Victor would do next with Sarai - would her save her or kill her...good suspense.
This book grabbed me right away and kept me entertained. Is it excellent prose, no, but a good action and intrigue book - kept me going.
Not too much
I wouldn't recommend this to friends, the reader was just awful and the story was trite. I found that I had figured most of it out not long into the story, so not captivating.
Get a different reader with more inflection in the voice
Not a good one...
I wanted to like this book and the main character was likable but just had a horrible time with the reader.
