Absolutely!! I found this book by searching for books narated by Luke Daniels. Mr. Daniels makes all his characters come to life in a way that I never could imagine by reading the same text in a hardback version.
I missed some sleep finishing this.
We've all heard those television evangelists and felt sorry for the people that were duped into sending money to pad their pockets. Even good Christians are ashamed of what they see on the airwaves at times.
My favorite scene was the introduction of Tim Trinity and his television sermon, complete with tongues and bible thumping. Luke Daniels had Tim's character down to a science!!
More sins of the Vatacan, exposed!!
This book was very well written and kept me entertained to the very end. In the beginning, I was afraid that it might offend my Christian upbringing. However, religion was covered from many differing perspectives, with none being stepped on too much.
I like to uncover the plot and figure out the story as it unfolds. In this book, there was 8 hours of listening when no one knew what was happening. Then, I think Lee Child got tired of the story and had Jack Reacher just explain to the bad guys how he knew what they had done, and of course, they confessed because of the brilliance of his reasoning. It's too bad that the story did not unfold in a way the we could have learned some of the detail as Jack figured them out instead of him just explaining it all. It was also a far-fetched unbelievable story.
Yes, but I may have to wait a while or look more closely at the reviews.
With this narrator, Jack Reacher sounds like a old man, the women sound like drag gueens and the children are laughable, they are so bad.
Not many. I was very disappointed at the ending. Jack just walked away without so much as a bye.
It was a fun read and as good as most of the other Jack Reacher books that I have read.
This is a pretty typical Jack Reacher book, however, I enjoyed the romance that was sprinkled into this one.
This is the first Jonathan McClain performance that I have listened to and frankly, I wish they all were by Jonathan McClain. Dick Hill sounds like an old man and his female voices end up sounding like drag queens. I will search through all the Reacher series and read the ones by Jonathan McClain first. I truly don't understand why Dick Hill has such a loyal following.
Yes, I scheduled a weekend of pressure washing the driveways and walkways just so that I could finish this book.
Lee Child, if you are listening, let's have more Jonathan McClain
It needs a good ending
Great storyline, well built characters, moves along at a good clip and then ends in the middle of the story.
Decent enough narration
It would have to have one. I think that Orson Scott Card is a great writer but I am getting tired of these series books. I did not realize that this book was the second in the series, nor that the third had not been released yet. By the time the third is released, I will have forgotten all the characters and their background stories. I usually wait until I think a series is finished before I start the first one. I made a mistake on this one because I did not have time to research before my purchase. I really enjoyed the book but am really ticked off at the ending. I guess I will research better before I purchase another Card book. I really wish he would write non-series books more often. Enchantment was great!
Hurry up with the 3rd installment and maybe I'll read it. If it takes longer than a month, I will likely pass.
Dave Ellis is a solid writer and I find it hard to critique him too hard. Most of my problems with the story line have to do with personal taste. I like for a story to start at the beginning and go to the end for the most part. This story jumped around from past to present at such regularity that I sometimes had difficulty keeping up.
I also like the character of Jason Kolarich, that is, until this novel. Ellis chose to ruin my favorite character and make him weak and obnoxious. If the writing had not been so good, I would have quit reading.
I would give this novel a 3.5 our of 5 based on the books that I choose to read.
I would not have made the character of Jason Kolarich so deplorable.
Luke is probably my favorite reader and I will read a new author just based on the fact that he is the reader. Luke can play so many voices that the story comes to life for me. My favorite Luke Daniels books are written by Kevin Hearne.
Tanya Eby did a very nice job of playing the voice of Shauna, but I did not care for her depiction of Jason as well. It was probably because both readers read the part of Jason and I just preferred Luke's over Tanya. I would probably have liked her fine if she were reading the whole book and the readers were not swapped every chapter or so.
I occasionally laughed, but no crying.
I guess I find it a little strange that Jason Kolarich can jump in the bed with someone he just met and treat all his friends like second class citizens, yet, I don't believe there was ever a mention of a single kiss for Shauna, even after she stood by him throughout his difficult times. I like my main characters to have some character I guess.
Probably Not, but I am not one to listen to any book again. However, there are parts of this book that I have played for others because I thought they were so good.
I liked that it was told from a more manly perspective. Many of the werewolfe/vampire books of late have been mushy romance books or written for teens.
My favorite character is Oberon and I would read these books if nothing more than to listen to his quick wit and personality. Luke Daniels did a great job with all the characters, but especially Oberon. I was simply amazed by his performance and I have recommended this series to my son. However, he will read the books instead of listening, so, I'm not sure that he will enjoy as much without Luke bringing the characters to life.
I can't wait for the next release and I hope that the Audio performance will have Luke Daniels again.
Cort Gentry went from being the best assasin in the world to complete stupidity. I really enjoyed The Grey Man. However, in "On Target", Gentry does everything wrong, becomes a drug addict and makes all the wrong decisions, all the time.
I finished this book, but only to see what happened in the end. I should have just skipped to the finish.
I read Book One in the Frankenstein series and could not wait to read Book Two. Book Two was not dissapointing and I thoroughly enjoyed reading, UNTIL it just ended. (With NO ending) It was obvious that to get to the conclusion, I would need to read Book Three. It is almost as if there was one book written and then divided into three with no thought to the satisfaction of the reader. I love Dean Koontz and have read almost all his titles. I am tempted to get Book Three to see how this book ends, but many of the reviews are not good on it either.
If you love this story and want to spend $60 or more on a book, then read them all. Otherwise, I would stop at Book One. This one has NO ending at all.
