This collection is a good way to experience the different writing and story telling styles of some best selling thrill writers. Most of of the stories were entertaining but not great. The excellent narrators made the listening time fly by. Recommended for readers who'd like a survey of some big-name writers in this genre.
I loved this book because I knew several of the characters and this was a great way to introduce me to new authors! The stories were great and the pairing of the characters were excellent. I truly enjoyed the short stories and the new characters....which I have all ready bought 3 books from 2 new authors I was introduced by thid book. I hope to see a Faceoff 2!
I am a fan of several of these writers and the stories are interesting enough to make me curious about the others. Good book.
I would definitely listen to FaceOff again. The short stories are prefect for listening in the car. Each is about 30 minutes but you may find yourself driving farther just to listen more!
I had read novels by many of these authors but it was great seeing the characters united: Cotton Malone with Gray Peirce, Jack Reacher with Nick Heller, Lincoln Rhyme with Lucas Davenport.....
This collection uses several narrators and all performed wonderfully. I loved the narrator for Michael Quinn vs. Repairman Jack. He made me think I was definitely in N'awlins.
I definitely could not stop!
The best was saved for last. The rest were in the mediocre to "I-saw-that-coming-a-mile-away". I always fall for these and hope that some day one will really be worth the listen from start to finish.
Although there are a lot of authors I like, this series of short stories is a hard listen due to extensive narrative between stories by the talented Baldacci.
Avid audio book listener with over 1600 books in my library!
The concept was a great idea the results a huge disappointment! Some of my favorite writers and I can't believe I wasted a credit on this.
