    "alonzo"

    This should have been a great book, Morrell at his best,indeed it was it was for something like 90% of the total book, but the ending detracted from the whole. In short a great story line that led nowhere

    Story
    "My first David Morrell"

    I found the book difficult to listen to.The narrator did not hold my attention, I found it very easy to wonder off and start thinking about other things while listening. Overall it was quite enjoyable though.

    Story
    "Nothing happens VERY slowly"
    Would you try another book from David Morrell and/or Phil Gigante?

    No thanks...the feel is one of the author trying to make tedium sound frantic and suspenseful.


    What was most disappointing about David Morrell’s story?

    The lack of meaningful progress


    Would you be willing to try another one of Phil Gigante’s performances?

    Maybe.


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

    Most disappointing....shocking boredom.

    "Strange Book but fun"

    This was a strange little book, but it was a fun one you actually wanted to finish. I get it on sale with a group and was better than I thought it would be. Dated but really good.

    Story
    "Not Morrell's Best"

    The plot is reasonably interesting but the story becomes tedious. Mid-book, it seems like every chapter, Morrell, through the main character, beats us over the head with the same theme; "Who am I, I've taken on so my aliases over the past 8 years , I don't know who I am." Yeah, we get it. Is it necessary to write about it every chapter using almost the exact same words?

    I have enjoyed Morrell in the past, but I couldn't wait for this one to end.

    Narration was well done.

    Story
    "Entertaining...for the most part"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Good story line, held my interest however the primarily entertaining plot with fairly engaging twists & turns is peppered with sophmoric and sometimes downright silly lines. The ending was so over-the-top with boy loves girl perfection it was ridiculous.

    The narration could have been better but it didn't add or detract from the book.


    If you’ve listened to books by David Morrell before, how does this one compare?

    Not sure that I would try another book by this author.
