Yes, the reader did a great job of keeping the listener engaged in the characters and the story did the rest.
Dante, because I learned more about him than I previously knew and the book made me want to go back and read The Divine Comedy again.
I think so. I recognized his voice. I think he did a wonderful job of keeping all the characters' voices distinct and interesting.
I did, but I didn't have the time to do it.
I love Dan Brown's historical information that weaves its way into the meat of the story. Learning new information about all the paces you visit in the story makes the reader want to go there and visit each place in person.
Great story - one could never quite get a handle on who was the bad guy.
Gosh how to pick one memorable moment. I guess when the chaplain walked up and you found out that the Colonel was not THE bad guy.
I liked Harper - she was smart, sexy, a bit of a tease.
Don't forget to trust your own instincts.....
Don't want to give anything away - I never agreed with the profiler's description of who the killer was likely to be.
If the leaders of our country could and would read and think about this book, maybe we could set the country on the road back to being great.
Vince Flynn - keep these books coming. A great cast of characters. Unbelievably resilient in the face of danger; able to keep going while injured and exhausted; just the right amount of humor to keep the ridiculous at bay. love George Guidall as the narrator.
Thes are my favorite road-trip books. Not too heavy, fun, exciting, makes the miles go by quickly. Great story and characters. George Guidall is the perfect narrator for these books.
These books should never be read by anyone other than George Guidall. He makes these stories and the characters come to life. Mitch Rapp is so much more than a hero...he is invincible, conscientous, honorable, and ruthless with his enemies. A very fun book to listen to while taking road trips. Engaging.
The mastermind of these murders is really creepy. The eyes of the victims must be destroyed so the dead cannot watch him and haunt him later. A compelling story but very difficult to read at times.
Davenport is many sided. He seems so civilized and then he beats the stuffing out of someone. The anger he carries is barely under control and then he can be warm, charming, sexy, intelligent, romantic, and sensitive at the same time. One of his longtime, close friends is a nun. He dresses well, drives a Porsche and designs internet games. And in the end, he figures out the crime and the perpetrator of the crime, carries on a romance or two and shows a man struggling to live with his shortcomings.
The story has lots of twists and turns and keeps the listener off balance. You just think you have it figured out and then Baldacci throws another curve. The only downer is Stone's anguish over his responsibility for everyone's else's problems i.e. injuries sustained by his friends while helping him. They are willingly involved in his life and his activites. He is a hero, for sure, but it is tiresome to hear over and over about this anguish. The readers do a fantastic job of presenting this book and it definitely is entertaining and worth one's time and money.
The reader did the best she could to make the characters come to life, but the writer was so busy making their inbteractions poetic, profound and thoughtful that she failed to make them warm and real. She spent alot of time making lists of every nuance that the whole thing became tedious listening.
