Bombproof | [Michael Robotham]

Bombproof

Sami Macbeth is not a master criminal. He's not even a minor one. He's not a jewel thief. He's not a safe-cracker. He's not an expert in explosives. Sami plays guitar and wants to be a rock god but keeps getting side-tracked by unforeseen circumstances. Fifty-four hours ago Sami was released from prison. Thirty-six hours ago he slept with the woman of his dreams at the Savoy. An hour ago his train blew up. Now he's carrying a rucksack through London's West End and has turned himself into the most-wanted terrorist in the country.

    "A huge disappointment"

    I was so excited to see a new Michael Robotham book read by Sean Barrett since this has always been a perfect combination of plot and performance. 'Bombproof' did not provide this pleasure. Certainly, Sean Barrett can squeeze some drama out of the telephone directory but here he was pressed to do much with a badly plotted book with an unbelievable central character. Obviously Rowbotham has a host of fans (myself included) who he needs to supply with books but i would rather wait than read a book obviously written in haste without much care.

    Would you listen to Bombproof again? Why?

    I've listened to this twice in three days already


    What other book might you compare Bombproof to, and why?

    Can't name one but anything pacey with flashes of black humour.


    What does Sean Barrett bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Very well read. Different voices excellent,to the point where the narrator became part of the story.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Made me grin a good few times,and catch my breath.


    Any additional comments?

    Just a fantastic listen.Fast,occasionally funny,and however unlikely the scenario,believable.
