    In the middle of the Indian Ocean, a NUMA research vessel is taking water samples at sunset, when a crew member spots a sheen of black oil ahead of them. But it is not oil. Like a horde of army ants, a swarm of black particles suddenly attacks the ship, killing everyone aboard, while the ship itself goes up in flames. A few hours later, Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala are on their way to the Indian Ocean. What they will find there will eventually lead them to the discovery of the most audacious scheme they have ever known....

    Drafted against her will to become a "Sparrow" - a trained seductress in the service, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.

    Would you listen to Red Sparrow again? Why?

    Not sure, usually don't reread


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, the tightest Spy Book I have read very engaging, and I do like the injected recipes. Not just guys running around shooting at each other. Everything is not dumbed-down for the U.S. reader as so often happens, a knowledge of geography and history - for instance - helps the experience.


    What about Jeremy Bobb’s performance did you like?

    The performance was good too, no fake Russian or other bad-guy accents, like you run across in other audible books.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Tom Cruise or yes The Virginian come to mind also.

    Would you try another book from Samantha Shannon and/or Alana Kerr?

    The performance was good, the story was boring - my annoyance is that I relied upon alot of positive reviews when I bought this and listened to it for a long time waiting for it to pick up steam, did not finish it 3/4 way through


    What character would you cut from The Bone Season?

    many.....

Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    What a disappointment - huge step down from his other books - both a nonsensical plot and poor writing.

    No!


    What aspect of Paul Michael’s performance would you have changed?

    was OK


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Anger to waste my time with this nonsense


    Any additional comments?

    Oh well
