Thank goodness for Scott Brick. I've listened to too many narrators without that ZING. The book kept me up too late since I had to know what came next. It's a crazy story, different from what I've listened to in the last several months.
I don't do book reports but I would suggest giving this a try.
When I was reading rather than listening I loved Cornwell. This is my first Cornwell book in many moons. While the story was good I just couldn't get involved with the narration. This is one of those books I think I'd rather curl up with and read to myself.
I'm really enjoying Dalton Fury and love the characters. This one jumped from one to another to another out the gate for Colt's team. As I listen to the stories it's easy to become attached to the individuals in the team and frustrating when one passes on. This one kicked off with the team landing on an airplane on the runway and just runs from there. I used to sit up late to read and no change with this. Just couldn't unplug and suddenly it's 3:00 AM.
i thoroughly enjoyed the book. I look forward to Baldacci's stories and hope he continues with McLarty and Cassidy. They bring the story more alive. Odd thing is, before I found Audible I was hesitant to read a Baldacci. Now, he's one of my favorites. I look forward to the next.
I realized once I got into the story that I had read the book pre-Audible. Also realized I enjoyed reading it more. I've enjoyed listening to books previously read but the narration on this left me cold.
My review is redundant on the Longmire books. I love Guidall and for me he IS Walt Longmire. I look forward to the next book as I finish one.
Read most of the Harry Bosch books, enjoyed most. But Haller is a nice change. Liked the characters, the story line and really liked the narrator. Hooked me from the beginning.
Nothing about this intrigued me. Years ago I read the "Stranger in a Strange Land" era books and loved those. Then he got to the moon trips which grew a bit stagnant after a while. But decided I'd try something more current and I think I'll move on to another author. Hate to dog a narrator but this didn't help any.
It doesn't pay to fall for Dewey. Figured something was going to happen to bring out the warrior in Dewey and sure enough. Love Dewey, love Coes and I hope there isn't a long wait for the next book. Perhaps I should say I hope there is a next book. Dewey is cranky, mean and indifferent to life which makes for a fun, rough ride. Tough though .. I liked Jessica.
I'm really getting into Berenson and with George Guidall it comes out as a dynamic duo. Duplicating a nuke is a bit of a stretch but still makes for a good story. And for me, that's what it's all about.
Enjoyed the listen but Colt seemed to get out of scrapes just a tad too easily. Thought the story line was good but maybe a little more suspense. Same time, since this is Fury's first fiction, not bad. If he writes another, I'll listen.
