Yes. This was a very good Alan Gregory book. Very well written and although you already know he's going to survive for the next book the plot was not as predictable as some of the other books. There were moments I thought the heroine was possibly the protagonist. This book had multiple possible endings and the listener doesn't actually find out until almost the end.
The other Alan Gregory books for obvious reasons.
Dick Hill's performance was fantastic as always.
Highly recommend this book. I think this is one of Stephen White's better books. Certainly worth the $ or credit with over 15 hours of listening time. I sometimes find this authors attention to details such as preparation and description of food or brand of clothing with style, cut, fit and color to be a little monotonous but not so much in this book. Although still descriptive not as much as in some of his other books. All in all a very enjoyable listen.
With over 500 audiobooks in my library it would be difficult to place this one. Not at the very top or bottom but somewhere in the middle.
Kevin Foley did a great job with this especially since the main character is a woman.
This book has gotten some poor and mediocre reviews on both Audible and Amazon and I'm not sure why. I actually listened for some of the discrepancies mentioned (blonde hair/brown), only to hear that the girl colored her hair out of a bottle. If people would listen the story may have unfolded with a little more fluidity. I thought this was a really good fast paced book, well written, believable and completed with talented narration. This is worth the credit!
I have so many books in my library I have a hard time rating them on order but I would say it falls in the top half.
The best part of this book is that it's conclusion is so far off from what you think it's going to be. Good plot with some really good twists and high tension.
Christopher Lane did a great job on all
Not extreme but melancholy. Linwood Barclay tends to put these zingers in at the very end and the last maybe 4 - 5 minutes get you every time.
This is a really good listen. I wasn't sure I was going to like it. The first part of the book starts out with the disappearance of a family minus the daughter. Her life is spent looking for them and wondering why they just up and moved with out her. I thought it was a little hokey but then as people started to get involved in the hunt for the family they started getting murdered and then it just kept getting better and better with one heck of a conclusion that will knock your socks off. It's worth the credit!
This was a really good fast paced adventure packed story. I would have like if it were a little longer. Characters were pretty fleshed out, enough for the story.
I think I liked Hannah the best. Her story came out little by little through out the book. As a subplot this was superb.
I don't want to spoil this for anyone but I think the scene that touched me the most was towards the end when Hannah sat with Nick on the mountain watching the fire.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The ending was not what I had expected. The brothers were GREAT the way they played off of each other, a some are not who they seem to be. I don't want to say too much but in my "opinion" this was certainly worth the credit.
Braden Wright did a great narration as with previous Jet books.
This was a good book but not my favorite in the series. The previous 4 books all developed the character of Jet much more and had her and who ever she was involved with front and center. In this book there are more underdeveloped antagonists and I'm not sure if it was me or the book but I found myself rewinding and relistening. There seemed to be more jumping around and although Jet saves the world her character seems to be downplayed. Her "friend" Matt is off to other parts being stalked by who knows who, I don't think there was resolution to his conflicts. This book moved right along and having listened to the previous four books I did have relationships down but would have been totally lost otherwise. Good series but hoping that Jet VI will be up to the standards I expect from Russell Blake.
This book is so well written, it's right up there with The Bone Collector and The Cold Moon which are my two favorite Rhyme books. This book brings the shadow of the Bone Collector back and actual conflict between Rhyme and the Watch Maker which is outstanding. The end if this book is one heck of a cliffhanger setting the listener up for the next in the series which I'm sure will be just as good.
Oh yes. Deaver leaves clues all over the place but they are so randomly placed and innocuous that you don't realize they are even clues until Rhyme unearths and points them out as clues. The story is told in a very methodical well thought out way, very complex but none the less easy to follow.
Nothing at all wrong with Edoardo Ballerini's performance. I thought he did a great job. Good inflections and character changes with out over dramatizing.
I highly recommend this book. Of all of Jeffrey Deaver's books this one rates right at the top!
I don't know what is going on with some of my favorite authors these days. They come up with a winning author/narrator combination and then they switch narrators. All of Montanari's previous books have been narrated by Scott Brick who I thought performed them perfectly, Why the change to someone else?
This was really a good book. Richard Montanari's Bryne/Balzano team is always an exciting roller coaster of a book. From page one the listener or reader is on the edge waiting to find out "who done it". This book however gives one final shock at the end. When I thought the book was finished and was listening to the epilogue wrap everything up the last line in the book BLEW ME AWAY!!!! I had to go back and listen again, I could not believe what I was hearing. I will not spoil this for anyone and don't get me wrong, the rest of the book is good but this was GREAT!!! It's worth the credit.
Oh yes! I was hooked within the first 5 minutes. It starts with a murder and Sean Drummond arrives on the scene in a hush hush role with a keen eye for evidence and a sharp sarcastic sense of humor that actually had me laughing and rewinding so I could hear what was written again. The plot was excellent and I LOVED the delivery of money. With out spoiling the outcome I will say that mental image that was drawn with Drummond stripping down to his underwear and refusing to loose them was priceless.
Scott Brick performed ALL the characters perfectly.
I has a hard time putting it down.
I really wish ALL of Brian Haig's unabridged books were available on Audible. I also wish he was more prolific. This is such a good author. I've either read or listened to everything he's written, I want more. I don't want to sound goofy but he truly paints a story with his words.
I really like the Nathan McBride books. I thought this one was good but, not as good as the past three.
With out spoiling the ending I will say the final scene with Nathan and Raven in the mine was a very touching moment. Nathan has more then one revelation.
Dick Hill is wonderful. If it were not for his narrating this book it might have only gotten 3 stars.
I didn't think the characters in this book had as much substance. The two main characters could have been anyone. I thought the previous books built on each other but could also be listened to out of order or as stand alone books. With this one, it didn't seem to me to build on the previous books but felt just a little short of an independent novel. Still enjoyable but I did expect just a little more.
The narrator! I am having such a hard time listening to this. I think I would be better off reading it. Story is great but I am having such a hard time enjoying this because of the narrator.
This is the worst narrator I have ever listened to. After listening to all of the previous with Dick Hill who is wonderful, I am so disappointed. His inflections and candece is just wrong and no southern accent.
Who picks the narrator? They should be forced to listen to this!
This was such a good book I LOVED it! The Bourne movies are great and I was reluctant to purchase the books because I thought they would be redundant. Maybe a little more fleshed out but boy was I mistaken! The two stories bare some similarities but that's where it ends. This book it Action Packed from beginning to end. There are a lot of characters but I did not think it was difficult to keep up with them. I cannot wait to finish the remaining Ludlum/Bourne books. Not sure if I will listen to the post Ludlum but will probably at least try one.
Silly question! Jason Bourne I would hope.
Scott Brick is one of my Favorite narrators. I would be happy listening to him read the phone book!
I think that's already been done.
I highly recommend this book. If you've seen the movie don't look for it the book, forget everything you think you know about Jason Bourne or you will be disappointed. If you do decide to get this you are in for a Very Enjoyable listening experience. This is Robert Ludlum at his best. Certainly worth a credit.
