Yes. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like the book but boy did I change my mind. Very good, a little sad at times but definitely hold on to your seat for a wild ride kind of story.
Mark Zeisler did a very good performance. I don't know if it was the greatest but it certainly was not bad.
Yes. I listened to it all in one day.
There are so many twists in this book, just when you think you know "who done it" the story goes off in another direction and takes of running somewhere else. The final two chapters took me totally by surprise. The conclusion actually left me feeling kind of melancholy and I normally like a book with an ending on the upside but in a way it does that too. Sounds confusing right? Listen to this one and see if you don't agree. It is worth the $ or credit you spend on it.
Since this is a sequel to The Handler, I will answer this question to the Handler. That book is very reminiscent of real life Jonestown or Waco or any of the other cults that use religion, intimidation and abuse to first recruit and then to keep their followers. This book continues that story but is a little more fiction then reality.
The reality of this and the previous book makes you wonder how this happens. This is a very well written, well researched book that provided both insight as well as an entertaining story. The protagonist is someone you get the feeling you're almost not supposed to like but you do anyway. He's had it rough and it shows. But in the end he is the hero. I am very happy with the purchase of both books and recommend them highly.
I have never listened to Tracy Thibodeaux before but I thought He did a really GOOD job. I thought his inflections and voice changes for different characters was really good. I did not think he sounded like Shatner but it's just my opinion.
This was a REALLY good book. I really hope this author takes off because I could easily see him becoming one of my favorites. Although this book is quite long the story was a page turner throughout. There were no lulls, it was not repetitive and there were quite a few scenes that I did not see coming even though there were actually some subtle warnings (like if only she/he had done this, missed a sign, came home later etc then the events that occurred could have been avoided). This author is so talented I can't say enough about this book. There are lots of characters, plots and subplots galore but so well told you only have to listen. I just can't wait for a sequel!!
Yes. This was soooo good. I didn't think Brett Battles could top The ENRAGED but I think he has at least written it's equal. I've relistened to Allthe others so will do the same with this one.
Oh Yes! And you are on the edge until the very end.
All! Silly question, Scott Brick is one of my two favorite narrators, so as always he read the book perfectly. Thank You.
As I have found with All the Jonathan Quinn books this one takes off within the first few minutes and then it proves to be a wild ride right up to the end. There is a little 4 year old girl who Orlando's mentor transported 7 years earlier and her fate has bothered Abraham since. It takes the entire book (almost) before you find out who, what, when, where, how and why. But oh the journey to get there keeps your heart tripping along. I turned this on this morning and have not turned it off once today, I had to get to the end. I only wish it were longer but then I would have just stayed up all night. This is just good. There is some great character development in here, the continuing relationships develope further, some really funny bantering between Nate and Jonathan and some unknown background (Daeng sp?) is revealed. Well written and I hope it doesn't take too long for the next book.
With out a doubt. I thought it was such a good book.
I thought he did a Great job with the whole book. His portrayal of the one Canadian father was a little Over the top but other then that I thought it was excellent. His narration of the male antagonist was Perfect! I will listen to other books narrated by him.
I really liked this book. Yes, the listener knows who the culprits are almost right from the beginning but I thought that added to the suspense. I did mot think this was predictable in any way and each time a new victim was taken i found myself hoping that one would get away. Each was different but likable. You listen to the gruesome details and the next scene depicts them interacting "normally", taking their child to school and talking to family (who just so happens to be the reporter covering the murders). The conclusion leaves you with a foreboding feeling that makes you want to write in one more chapter and give it a happy ending. This does not in anyway spoil the book, very good and I will definitely purchase the next in the series.
Probably. There is so much going on with no lulls that if you're not paying attention you can easily miss something.
Scott Brick narrated flawlessly. Since he is one of my two favorite narrators my opinion is slightly biased.
This is such a thrilling book! It's like reading something by Eisler and Berry with a little Russell Blake thrown in for fun. You have these murders committed by this gang of bad guys trying to make it look like another gang who are trying to make it look like someone else altogether? Then there are these bad guys who maybe aren't so bad, or maybe they're the good ones? Don't forget the good guys, or are they? Or is there a woman behind it all? I wouldn't want to spoil this work for anyone but of you're reading my review get the book, Audible has a guarantee but if you're anything like me you will not need it, this is one book worthy of your time and credit. I just can't say enough, take my word, get the book and please leave me some kind of feedback so I know if other people liked it as much as I do. Right now I'm off to get the first in the series and can't wait for the next.
I've never listened to Todd Haberkorn before. I thought he did a very good job narrating this book. Although he is not my favorite I would listen to him again.
I really enjoyed this book. I don't want to spill too much but will try to tell some. So we have terrorists right here in the US kidnapping genius teenagers to hack into NSA and other govt agencies and personal pc's belonging to politicians who wield power to use at a later date for bribery and other purposes. The teens that don't cooperate end up buried in the desert somewhere. There are some minor conflicts and a romance going on in the background but these do not overshadow the main plot. I thought it was a very good and believable book, certainly worth your time and WOW, I don't know why but it was all of $4.89!!!! Great deal!
Braden Wright does a great job narrating the Jet books. I have not listened to him narrate anything else but his voice is the voice of Jet. He is very believable even portraying a woman.
Yes I did exactly that!
Another fast paced wild ride of a book from Russell Blake. This is light reading (listening) but extremely entertaining. Jet and Matt's past continue to haunt them but this wonder couple can bring their foes down by the dozens and remain on top and intact with few wounds, broken bones and bruises. Amazing! Seriously, it is worth the credit and I RECOMMEND IT :)
I really like Rob Shapiro doing Victor. I have looked for other books but he doesn't have many. Would like to see him narrating more mysteries and suspense.
This is a really good Victor book. It is fast paced with plenty of heart pounding edge of your seat moments through out the story. I was a little disappointed that it didn't pick up where the last book left off but this was a complete story on its own. The book goes full circle from beginning to end, I won't say how because I don't want to spoil it for anyone but the conclusion leaves your jaw dropped. I actually had to go back and listen to it a second time not sure I had heard it correctly. So now the door is open for a follow up to either book 3 or 4, or maybe Tom Wood will figure outhow to pull them all together, either way I am looking forward to the next This book is worth your time and credit!
I thought this was a typical Reacher book. By that I mean it did NOT disappoint me at all. It's Reacher to the rescue with an unexpected ending.
Dick Hill is Jack Reacher's voice. There are three books in this series that are read by someone else and I really wish Dick Hill would reread these. I for one would purchase them.
Nothing extreme but I think there were some really good one liners that did make me laugh through out the book.
Not sure why this book has gotten some poor reviews but I thought it was great. This is probably my favorite series and I'm already waiting for the next. I think people have to remember that he was "born" in 1961, making him 53. Unless Lee Child does a flashback book you can't expect him to perform like he was 36 again and still be believable. I really liked the story line and the ending was so unexpected. As in a few previous books the ending throws you for a loop. Everything is getting wrapped up, there's maybe 15 minutes left and you find out that what you believed was the conclusion was not and the real antagonist was the last person you would have guessed. I am happy with my purchase and I'm sure I will listen to it again.
Oh yes! This was such a good book. Long (which I like), very detail orientated (but not overly with trivial filler), great characters and an Excellent lead in to a new series.
Robert McAll. He has such a colorful history that would make a normal man bitter and hostile but he has turned his emotions to humanitarian characteristics with a twist.
His performance was five star worthy.
I really enjoyed Michael Sloan's style if writing. I though it was very much in the style of Robert Ludlum. I thought the book kept the pace up with out any lulls. The story unfolds in present and flashbacks that are clearly defined and easily followed. I think the publishers intro to "The Equalizer" is a little misleading because that title doesn't come into play until the last chapter or three! The entire story leading up to the title is how Robert McAll gets to that point. Don't get me wrong, it's a Great Journey and certainly worth the read/listen and credit!
