Brotherhood: Assassin's Creed, Book 2 | [Oliver Bowden]

Brotherhood: Assassin's Creed, Book 2

Rome, once mighty, lies in ruins. The city swarms with suffering and degradation, her citizens living in the shadow of the ruthless Borgia family. Only one man can free the people from the Borgia tyranny - Ezio Auditore, the master assassin.

Ezio's quest will test him to his limits. Cesare Borgia, a man more villainous and dangerous than his father, the Pope, will not rest until he has conquered Italy. And in such treacherous times, conspiracy is everywhere - even within the ranks of the Brotherhood itself.

    "Great, but . . ."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, it is a solid continuation of the story line began in the first book.


    What other book might you compare Brotherhood to and why?

    Historical fiction books. Some characters have real names and places but circumstances are not real.


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

    As in the first, his performance is excellent. Character vocalizations are consistent and help bring the story depth and life.


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

    I don't get overly emotional. sorry.


    Any additional comments?

    This is the second book from the video game series. As in my first review, this book is also excellent. The action is virtually non stop. Oliver Bowden does an excellent job of moving from one scene to another without missing a beat.

    Gildert Jackson, the narrator, continues his excellent portrayal of all characters with consistency.

    I honestly do not know how closely it mimics the games actions but it does not matter in the least. If you love adventure and action it is well worth the credit. If there are any issues that I found it has to be the seemingly cliche ending of books or movies of these time periods. Nevertheless, it will not ruin the ride. If you liked the first, the second book will not disappoint.

    "Driven by the Narrator"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As with the first book, I would recommend this book to any fan of the Assassin's Creed games as it brings you back into the world of Ezio.


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

    Gildart Jackson was meant to narrate these books. His ability to nail the characters and bring out their personalities is amazing. He blew away my expectations: with this being a story that focuses a lot of the interactions and emotions of its characters, a good narrator is needed to keep everything together and to carry the listener through the story. I can't think of any way to make the narration any better.


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

    In a word, yes.

    "IS IT THAT OBVIOUS ITS A VIDEO GAME?"
    Would you try another book from Oliver Bowden and/or Gildart Jackson?

    I ALREADY HAVE! ALL THE OTHER AC BOOKS.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    WITH AN OBVIOUS 'HAPPILY EVER AFTER WITH WORK STILL YET TO BE DONE', I ENJOYED IT. LOOKING FORWARD TO MORE.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    THE NARRATION MADE THE PACE OF THIS STORY WHICH WAS A BAD THING. HE'S GOT TO PICK UP HIS PACE IN THE ACTION SEQUENCES TO MATCH THE WRITING.


    Do you think Brotherhood needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    IT ALREADY HAS ONE...
