    "Also Can't Open"

    Also ...not a review. I'm sure I'll love the story. But I have downloaded the file to my 2 devices (old). One is an original Ipod Shuffle. The other an old black Phillips mp3. On both devices I can see the code appear on the device when opened on my PC...but neither produce audio when played. The Phillips device gives the message "file not compatible" Maybe I have to buy a newer mp3 or iphone?

    I'm glad it's only $4.95. But I'm annoyed that I can't get the story...I am a huge fan of Nelson...I served in the NZ Infantry in Vietnam the same year he did his tour, so I can relate to his stories like "word of honor" and "Up Country".

    But maybe at age 66 this new-fangled audio book thingee is too advanced for old grunts.

    Maybe one of you young techo nerds out there can suggest a solution for me?
    Thanks

    "He's back"

    Loved it. I mean I can't wait for The panther which has Corey back, and Scott Brick does a good job with him. I have read all the Corey books and was really upset when I thought they were all done so this has given me somthing to look forward to. I admit that Demille's other books are nice but nothing entertaining as much as Corey

    Story
    "Not what I expect from DeMille"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, this book, even though it is a short story, did not live up to the name of the author nor did it do justice to the character of John Corey. I have read almost every book of DeMille's and particularly enjoy the John Corey series. This seemed to be an afterthought.


    What could Nelson DeMille have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Write it as a full length novel which would give time for the personality of John Corey to expand and give a wonderful writer such as DeMille time to develop the background needed for this piece.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brick is a great performer and I feel that what I did enjoy of the story was the performance of Brick.


    Could you see The Book Case being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No

    "worth buying. Then listen to DeMille's MAYDAY!!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Book Case the most enjoyable?

    I have bought 80 books YTD from Audible.com. I have not listened to one bad book by DeMille. I am listening to MAYDAY by DeMille now and it scares the crap out of me. It reminds me of that flight 700, I think it was &00 that went down in the Atlantic after the Navy shot it down accidentally then covered it up.Government cover-ups!!! NOTHING NEW THERE.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Detective like always in this series


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes! Brick does a fine job in most of his work, although when he has to perform or act like a "whiny guy" it doesn't suit him. He sounds like a "bitch." It like George Goodell is the only guy to read for Randy Wayne White and Ron McClarty for the author, I forget his name, maybe Silva, but the main character was an ex spook who lives in the cemetary across from the White I mean Black house.

    Whoever read Lynsey Boxer's character in Patterson's latest book was mediocre at best. The other woman is better. I know every narrator. I have what people have told me is a "tonographic memory". I never forget a voice, ever! I have even been tested. i use to be able to tell anyone where somebody was born and grew up down to a five zipcode range, anywhere in the country. It was a hobby for me.

    You will think I am insane for saying this, but I will bet anyone $100,000 that Brad Pitt is Robert Redford illigitamate son. I can tell by his voice. Anyone else who has intelligence training in facial recognition or behavior sciences with a specialty in in recognition will agree with me if they take fifteen minutes and compare their facial movements, ie., lip movement, cheek movements, leg stances etc. I bet $100,000. I know I'm correct.

    Also, the "guy" who narrates the low testosterone commercials on tv for that "egomaniac neurosurgeon, Jacob jewenstein, from Hopkins, or whatever the asshole's name is, the narrator is a biological relative of former governor Mike Huckabee.


    Who was the most memorable character of The Book Case and why?

    Gotta go for now.


    Any additional comments?

    Yeah! I know youwill think I'm a nut but check out what I said. You will see I'm correct.

    "Want More John Corey?"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This is a taste of John Corey. Brief, but interesting and a little something to satisfy our desire for more of John Corey before his last adventure. Maybe Nelson DeMille will come up with a couple more of these for all his Corey fans. I enjoyed it, and recommended it to my friends.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nelson DeMille again?

    Yes, I have enjoyed most of his books on tape.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He makes the character alive and believable, probably more than DeMille had thought possible.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It was full of redeeming qualities, story, character, length and narrator.

    "Can't Open"

    This is not a review of the book. I can't review the book becuase . . .Did everything the website said and still could not open the file. Audible is pretty much worthless. That's $4.95 I won't get back. Thanks for nothing.
