One of my favorites. This book was a recommendation from a friend and I was looking for an entertaining read after a difficult book. Perfect! But, by no means is this book lighthearted. Excellent plot, serious issues, an understanding of human nature, while still being very entertaining.
The revealing of the husband's secret....but I'm not telling!
Absolutely. I only listen in the car, and always wanted to drive somewhere.
I would have much preferred reading this book, rather than listening. The story eventually was strong enough for me to push through to the end. Time well-spent, no. I usually look forward getting in my car and listening, but not for this selection. The narrator negatively affected how I felt about the book.
Mason being drugged at the winery and subsequent scene.
I'm not sure. Amanda Leigh Cobb has a pleasant voice, perfect for narration. I think she has potential. Her narration of dialogue in this book had an unnatural, affected, sing-song quality that really ruined the listening experience.
No, but I would read more of this author's books.
I'm glad I listened to No Easy Day. But, I didn't find it as interesting or compelling as I expected.
Finding Osama bin Laden's son, then Osama bin Laden himself.
When one of the seal's called out bin Laden's son's name in the stairwell.
The World of Navy Seals
Really did not like the political commentary at the end. It detracted from the quality of the book.
Characters: the characters are what keeps the plot moving in this book. I find with this series and John Sandford's "Prey" books, it's the character/s that keep me coming back, even if the storyline is lacking. Moody: Dave has emotional baggage and it plays out in his decisions. Louisiana: great backdrop.
No, not on the edge of my seat, but found it interesting and entertaining.
I have liked Mark Hammer's performance in other books. I guess this performance was a little flat and I prefer Will Patton narrating this series.
No, this book is not a page turner.
Love the Dave Robicheaux series overall.
I liked the main character, Iona, very much. The beginning of the story was very interesting, starting with Iona's ancestors. I wish the rest of the story had been as interesting. The storyline had alot of potential that was wasted. I did not like the other female characters.
No, I wouldn't recommend this book. There are other Nora Roberts books that are much better. Maybe, I would have liked this book a little more, if I had read it instead of listened.
This narrator was acting, not reading. Actually, she OVER-acted. When listening to an audio book, I want to feel like I'm being read to. This narrator negativley affected my listening experience.
Yes, start writing reviews on this site:)
This narrator would probably be fine if she toned it down.
At the top. So compelling, heart-wrenching, and interesting from many perspectives. I haven't been much of a nonfiction reader/listener, but, because of this book, I would love to listen to more personal survival stories. Very impressed by Amanda Lindhout's writing and narrating talent. Layered in the personal story, are lessons in the political and cultural struggles, Islam, and diplomacy, which provided a richness to the story. The book is so well structured.

No, I didn't have an extreme reaction, but I was very moved emotionally by the book. It provides a way to gain perspective on the annoyances of life and the suffering of others. Also, I learned alot about the politcal and cultural struggles in Africa.
