    "Best Milton Thriller yet"
    If you could sum up Blackout in three words, what would they be?

    Unputdownable


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, good story with great twists, turns, and surprises.


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

    His command of voice for all the characters. Incredible talent!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    There was not a lull in the story at all. Very well written with just the right flow.


    Any additional comments?

    Milton has now become my favorite charactor of this genre.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Another John Milton espionage series winner!"

    Author Mark Dawson calls his protagonist John Milton, "James Bond with a conscience." John Milton is an ex-assassin for the British government who is endlessly conflicted by his past as a killer and by his alcoholism. Yet, no matter how far away he travels he can never escape the impact of past actions and behaviors; enemies from his past always find him. Action, suspense and interesting situations and characters make Dawson's novels and short stories worth reading. Blackout, John Milton series Novel #10, follows Mark Dawson's tried and true formula and is a definite winner. Narrator David Thorpe is adequate, but no better.

    "What a shame!"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Well that is where my disappointment lies. I have over 200 audio books so I know when a book is well read. For me, the reader here is dire. I just cannot get into the book because in my view the reading spoils it. So the time spent in trying to by pass the voice to the story was time ill spent. \Maybe it is just me. I strongly suggest that you listen to the example right through.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Not much impressed about the story or the style of writing


    How could the performance have been better?

    Now your asking!. A different reader. I now this must sound really hard, but I just cannot help but feel so disappointed in the performance.

    "Excellent, kept me riveted right to the end"

    Excellent twists and turns that kept me listening on the due of my seat. You know it's good when you realise that you are tense, just waiting to know what is going to happen next.
