It's a bit quirky, but completely fun. I found myself laughing out loud frequently! And I think the performance by a British speaking narrator made it even more brilliant!
I honestly can't think of anything else to compare it to!
The way the narrator uses inflection and tones to create the atmosphere is just perfect! I do not think I would have enjoyed this book as much if I had simply read it on my own. I loved the narration!
It was an entertaining story with many twists and turns
Nick Sullivan, like the first two books in the series!
This was a very good story, but it drove me nuts when the narrator placed emphasis in the wrong place or got all excited about a sentence that wasn't really that exciting. It didn't feel like the narrator was really in tune with what was happening in the book. Often times, I would replay it in my head the way I thought it should have sounded. He made the female head of the CIA sometimes sound whiny. And I'm pretty sure such a strong woman would never have sounded whiny at all! (And that is just one example of many!)
I have also listened to Transfer of Power and Third Option. I thought these were very well performed and maybe it is due to the fact that my image of the characters was formed in these first two books. Either way, the performance really turned me off to the series and I wasn't compelled to buy the next book in the series, as I had been previously.
