    "Editing makes a difference"

    I liked the story and the characters but the editing made it hard to fully enjoy. I prefer audiobooks in which the chapters have a long pause at the end, as this book has. But, this was the first book I have ever listened to that made it very clear where the reader stopped for a break or the day and resumed and where re-takes were made and edited in. Both the volume and tone of the reader would change abruptly and annoyingly for either, OFTEN.

    Story
    "A bit of a let down from the first book"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I wanted to strangle Jennifer. Some of her reactions, given the situation and line of work, is completely off the mark. She trains for a year as an operative, and gets upset when too much violence is used on a terrorist? Seriously . . . While there are rules and ways to do things, she is just too emotional.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Ted Bell and Alex Hawk


    Would you be willing to try another one of Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ’s performances?

    No - The original duo was much better.


    Was All Necessary Force worth the listening time?

    No

    Story
    "Loved it!"

    Despite the weird love/hate relationship between Jennifer and Pike, this story rocks from beginning to end. A fitting sequel, and a high bar set for the next installment.

    Story
    "Pike Logan Kicks Butt"
    What other book might you compare All Necessary Force to and why?

    Any other Brad Taylor books featuring Pike Logan


    What about Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ’s performance did you like?

    I'm still getting used to the two readers format. Having listened to many books done by a single reader it does take a little getting used to and there is a good and a bad to it. I think they did a great job.


    Any additional comments?

    Pike is back in action and using all the force necessary to get the job done. In short he's kicking ass and filling body bags. I like the fast paced action. What I don't like is all the talk about task force approval for this and omega authority for that. I get it that politicians wring their hands while terrorists take real actions, but the oversight council is even getting on my nerves.

    I don't have a lot of love for Jennifer either. She is sort of Pike's sidekick and while she makes the story interesting, I really don't see anyone with her unease for killing being on the front lines of a terrorism task force.

    The story is great and fast paced. I can't wait to read the next book.

    Story
    "Typical male downputting"

    It began to get old when the hero always had to be right. He suggested that people who stuck to their beliefs, like he did, had to be wrong for doing so.

    "I don't understand"

    The story is very unusual. The bad guys accomplich 80% of their objectives. I guess you can say the hero saved the the US from the other 20%, but so what. Not a very satisfying story.

    Story
    "Even Better Than The First"

    The first book (One Rough Man) was a great start and introduction to the characters and the Task Force. This book is a great second in the series and shows more polish. Still lots of action and character insight (at least with Pike & Jennifer). I haven't figured out if I like the two narrator style yet. This is the first series I have run into it. and it may not have been as obvious if the recording/editing had been better. The recorded editing needs improvement - it was distracting at times - hence the 2 stars. I haven't run into many books that has as many recording/editing blips as this one. But don't let that prevent you from listening to this book.
