What the Critics Say

"The plot surges headlong with energy; characters--from various cultures--are both believable and accessible; rich dialogue flows. A Bible-quoting evangelical Christian president in the war room is over the top, and while evangelical hot-button issues may please some readers and turn others off, Brown has penned another winner." (Publishers Weekly)

    "Disappointing and very preachy."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No - I like my military thrillers to at least make an attempt at authenticity.


    What was most disappointing about Don Brown’s story?

    Actions of protagonist and antagonist just not believable.


    How could the performance have been better?

    More differentation between characters.


    Was The Malacca Conspiracy worth the listening time?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Very Preachy

    I am a retired Navy Commander, and I bought this book because I had read that my first ship, USS REUBEN JAMES, played a big role and the plot looked interesting. Unfortunately, I was very disappointed in the execution of the book and the accuracy. I won’t bore you with the list of military/Navy mistakes, but there were so many it made the listening very frustrating. Personnel doing things out of job description of their rate or rank, using equipment that doesn’t exist on certain types of ships. Also, lots of preaching: apparently everyone in the Navy and the government prays a lot. I served nearly 3 years at the Pentagon and never once did I hear it referred to as “The Building.” Must be a JAG thing. Good idea executed poorly. To finish the book I wore out my “I believe” button.
    One note on the Narration. I have not listened to the previous 4 books in this series that were criticized for having a British narrator. This narrator is American, but I did have problems distinguishing the characters. All Indonesians bled together, and all Navy personnel seemed to be either from Chicago or from the deep South. Not sure what that’s about.
    Overall I was disappointed. I will not be listening to the other 4 books in the series.

    "Another homerun by Don Brown"
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    yes...because it did


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

    Yes.......good work


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes........wish I could have


    Any additional comments?

    as with Don Brown's other excellent works, I love the fact that the book kept me on the edge of my seat, while being free of any profanity or immorality

    "Too much"

    Book was good enough to keep you listening. But there really was too much going on, and I thought it went way over the top with what happened. Narration was 5 stars as usual with Dick Hill behind the microphone.
