I took a chance on this one not knowing the author. I loved it. I usually figure mysteries out either entirely or partially. This one I had no idea. I was very well written and I cant wait for the next one by this author and also the narrator. She was awesome to listen to. Best narrator Ive heard yet. I think Im in love....:)
Absolutely and I have. At a time when we need more than ever to feel proud to be Americans and find a way to fight fire with fire, Brad Thors' Scott Harvath does exactly that. For those who feel like the good of the few outweighs the good of the many, maybe this is not the book for you. But if you feel like Americas worth fighting for at any cost, than read on brother, your in for a treat.
Scott as usual, smart and bad ass, he's the story of many of our real life American heroes fighting for an America that doesn't live in fear or fights against those in our own government trying to keep America safe.
Armand and George Guidell both do an outstanding job at bringing Scott to life, and making you feel like your right there.
All I can say is, South of Broad is the only book Ive enjoyed as much or more as Beach Music. I just finished and am starting over!
I dont say that lightly, and Im not usually drawn to this genre of literature and by that I mean I usually am reading murder mysteries. But this book was written with such lyrical wording, it was like the words danced off the page into my mind. Ive read it several times and after you listen to it, you owe it to yourself to actually read it. You'll see what I mean when you do.
Without a doubt the absolute worst book I have ever sat through. With each chapter I promised myself that I would quit listening if it did'nt develope a plot, or something happened other than the author describing the boring minutia of the actions and past of the charactors. It was like someone telling a story that never gets to the point. In fact, even the title is misleading as there are actually no "ruins". I kept listening just hoping it was just a slow start. I thought if Stephan King gave it rave reviews, it HAD to get better. (Come on Stephan, who did you owe a favor to?) Well it did'nt and I want my nine hours back. Fortunately it was nine hours in traffic. I think the author should have to sit through nine hours of watching my old home movies as payback.(Except there would actually be some entertainment value in a few parts.)
