The story is fantastic. Flynn does his standard excellent job deepening the plot and describing every detail. It's amazing how I felt I was actually watching it as a movie or a bystander watching in real life.
All Flynn / Rapp books are excellent and carry the same themes. Don't let the narrator comments about Sullivan vs. Guidall push you away. They both do an excellent job and I prefer Sullivan over Guidall due octave and tone ranges.I have read a lot of Flynn books and his details and research are on top. This book in particular makes you feel like you are walking around in the White House with these people.
Sullivan did a FANTASTIC job narrating this story. I read a lot of reviews where people ripped him when comparing to Guidall. This simply is NOT accurate. There is NO comparison. Both are good, but Sullivan has a much WIDER range of pitch, tone, octaves and voice levels to cover all the characters of this book.
When listening to Sullivan narrate, I instantly knew what character he was speaking of before he said their names. With Guidall this is a bit harder since his voice is so deep and raspy. He can't narrate woman voices as well as Sullivan. Case in point: listen to Sullivan when he does the voice of Dallas, VP Chief of Staff. Wow, you know that voice when he does it. The voices of the President and VP are very discernible and you know how much a prick the VP is by his voice.
All women voices are done incredibly well. Sullivan also does the female voices incredibly well. Guidall just doesn't have this range of tones that Sullivan has. I know this because I have heard both do Flynn - Rapp books. Although they are both good narrators, don't let the nay sayers dissuade you from this or any other Sullivan narrated. It is EXCELLENT. Sullivan does a very fine job!
The ending was a bit rushed. I felt like an entire chapter was missing from when the White House burns to the ground to when the President is shown viewing the wreckage to Dallas talking to the VP. There needed to be more of a bridge to these two chapters.The epilogue actually closes out the book with Fareek and this should have been expanded a bit and put in the book as a final chapter with the epilogue having something a bit different, maybe an expansion of the love story with Rapp and the reporter.Flynn does this a lot with his books, he shuts them down very quickly at the end. It's like he runs out of paper....he ends it a bit too quickly for me, but still a fantastic story and I know anyone who likes spy novels will love this story.
HORRIBLE! OMG, This book sounds like something I read in 5th grade.... no wait.... 4th grade. I couldn't bear the story line. If it was a physical book, I would have thrown it in the trash, but instead I deleted the audio files after two hours of listening to her ramble on in 1st person. I couldn't bear to listen for over 10 hours of this crap! The story is not exciting, makes absolte no sense, not interesting, not anything good. I don't understand what all the hype is about with the movie. It must be a tweens thing. Don't waste your money!
It's a stupid story! She goes on and on describing the most mundane physical parts of the environment and surroundings of the main character, bread, pudidng, hunting and gathering for one meal. Dear lord! It's painful to listen to.
Not sure about that; the story is most important to me, but I might.
NO - Don't buy it and I want a refund.
Wow, this is the best narrator! Simon Vance should narrate all of audible books.
The story is an incredible end to this trilogy and the author closes everything out very nicely especially in the afterward...make sure you listen to it.
I always judge a book, not just by how good the beginning and middle are, but especially how it ends and how the author brings everything together. It's not rushed, and Larsson ties up all the ends quite nicely. The ending or rather both of them are amazing.
The best part of the book is the last two or three sentences. What a finish! Wow
I want another book from this author!
all of them!
The courtroom trial was incredible. Selinger's lawyer kicks ass and tears that s--thead Telaborian (sp) to shreds!
Recounting of the rape scene during the trial that happened from book 2
having multiple comment sections are stupid!
If you like mystery, murder, suspense and intrigue this is the book for you.
Of course it's Lisbeth. She's an incredible diverse and deep character.
This was the very first audible book I ever listened to in my life. WOW! What a great listen. The story was fantastic and the narrator is incredible.
