City of Lies picks up where Museum of Thieves ended. I suspect there is going to be a third book to continue the series. The story was good but what really makes the audio book is Claudia Black's narration. She doesn't just read; she performs. Ms Black is an actor, best known for her performances in the Sci-Fi series Farscape and Stargate. She brings all her acting talent to her audio book readings making for a great listening experience. I hope we hear more narrations from her.
I originally purchased the abridged version which seemed somewhat muddled. I recently discovered this unabridged version and thought I'd give it a try. Very glad I did. It's a wonderful read. There's a good back story of Sarek, Amanda and Spock as well as the usual adventures with the Enterprise and it's crew.
Performance was better than I expected considering Nick Sullivan isn't one of the Star Trek characters. The abridged version is read by Mark Lenard who played Sarek so of course the reading is perfect but the unabridged book is so much better and Nick Sullivan does a good job so I recommend the unabridged version.
I wish all of the Star Trek books were available as unabridged.
Highly recommend to Whovians especially those who would like to hear more from The War Doctor. This story takes place just prior to the events in the 50th Anniversary TV special.
Nicholas Briggs does an amazing job of narration. I could hear and see John Hurt throughout the story.
Nicholas Briggs narration.
I want to hear more stories from the War Doctor era.
I've already listened to it several times. Richard Armitage doesn't just read the book; he performs the book. The novel is very good but the true joy is listening to the narration.
It was all exceptional but for me what was memorable was Mr. Armitage's ability to make me believe I was listening to a full cast production.
I didn't have a particular favorite scene. The whole book is excellent.
Starring Richard Armitage as Hamlet
This is a novel based on the play. Purists may grumble but it is well written and maintains all the key elements.
I wish I had read more reviews before purchasing this. There was a thin plot but not one that seemed to have any point to it except to provide a reference point for numerous superficial sexual encounters. Frankly, I found it boring. I won't bother with any more.
I bought this book expecting a nice mystery. There is a mystery of course, but the book is predominately a Christian book, with Mac the central character spending a weekend with God, Jesus and The Holy Spirit. The writing is fine, the narration good but if you are not interested in listening to Christian books, best to give this a miss.
