Finding the mysteries and thrills of life and spirituality.
Brad Meltzer has come into his own with this book. The plot twists were perfect. My iPod was blazing with this book - I finished it in three workdays - which is nearly a record for me. You won't want to put it away.
This book starts slow and never gets any better. Too predictable. I found it hard to finish, but have a policy to finish what I start. Spend your money elsewhere. I did enjoy the narration.
I have listened to several Brad Meltzer books but I was ready to stop listening to this one after Part 1. I persevered and finished the book but it did not improve. I love Scott Brick as a narrator but this story was so ridiculous in that both of the main characters acted as the lone ranger despite murders, death threats, etc. and one of them was an assistant DA. In reality both of them would have contacted the police or someone and the bad guys would have been apprehended easily. Too many mystery books have unbelievable heros/heroines but I thought that this book went overboard.
The story twists and turns, keeping one guessing and the narration from Scott Brick electrifying drawing the listener into each character. Love all Mr Meltzers books.Have listened to many narrations by Mr Brick and always intrigued by his voice and his portrail of the characters.
Guff, Sara and Conrad.
All of them, just could not stop listening to find out what was going to happen next.
Keep the books coming with Mr Brick as narrator.
When I write a review, it's fun for me but they are not considered very helpful.
Incredibly Soap-Opera-ish. Self-will run riot with two protagonists pushing the limits of believablity. If this were a movie, it would rival "Plan 9/Outer Space" as the worst. Scott Brick's overacting left me laughing and shaking my head in disbelief. No more Meltzer for me.
The age old plot - pit husband and wife against each other - in the courtroom. Without any creditability.
I enjoyed this book. I usually listen to the books when I take my dogs for a walk, this one kept me out walking longer. Excellent story, enough suspense to keep you guessing. Well developed character. The ending a bit disappointing, but the story was so good I did not mind a bit of a let down in the end.
This is my second book by Brad Meltzer and I have not been disappointed yet. I now moving on to the 3rd read by Meltzer - The First Councel. Hope it is as good as the first 2 I finished.
Scott Brick is fantastic as usual.
No shortage of twists and turns
I found the music to be distracting and a little to loud.
I've enjoyed Brad Meltzer's decoded on the history channel and thoroughly enjoyed so figured it's time to listen. Meltzer's story and Scott Brick's performance has me waiting to listen to the next one.
So I love Brad Metzger books and i'm used to exactly how complex he can make a plot. But this one took the madness to a whole new level! I found myself yelling at my ipod, just to have the characters behave like anyone normal would. It was entertaining, but it could have been half as long and a little more to the point for my liking.
