    Story
    "End Game - Best In the Graves series"
    Where does End Game rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This one would be in my top half. With about 500 books in my library so far it is hard to place any single book.


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

    I really like Basil Sands reading the Jonathan Graves books, much better then the narrator who reads the first two of the series. His cadence when reading is perfect for the character.


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

    Yes! I listened to it in One Day!


    Any additional comments?

    I think John Gilstrap did a Great job with this book. His writing style has really evolved since his first book and he has brought so much more personality to his characters. In this book Boxer has become more vocal, he reminds me now of Dox from the John Rain series by Eisler. I don't want to spoil the story for anyone but if you're on the fence about this book, get off the fence and get the book! I personally think it is the best one in the series.

    "Not really part of the series"

    I've read all of the Jonathan Graves books so I was excited when I found there was a new one in the series. While it was an OK story, with a couple of interesting characters, Jonathan Graves played just a minor part of the plot for most of the story. He really only took part in the last hour or so and that definitely wasn't up to Gilstrap's previous standards. The weak ending was disappointing. Still waiting for the next Jonathan Graves mission.

    "Needs a rewrite.."
    What would have made End Game better?

    A total rewrite of the story, with conversations flowing between characters that depicted them as professionals. There were so many sections that i had to skip over to avoid being inundated with a plethora of useless dialogue.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to get my wasted credit back

    "Ending lacking spoiler alert"

    Seemed like deadline controlled ending. Left incomplete. What happened to nuclear bombs? Still out there? People still looking for him for codes?

    Story
    "terrible dialogue"

    Overall the book served it's purpose as entertainment; however, the dialogue at times was so glaringly forced and some of the characters written so stereotypically that I occasionally became annoyed at what I was listening to.

    "Fast paced mystery"

    While I enjoyed the story, initially the voice was annoying, but I got used to it and learned to enjoy the inflections.

    "Could not get past the narrator"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I really cannot say anything about the story. The narrator was so over the top, was so obnoxious to listen to, that I had to turn it off and will be returning the book.
