A fantastic thriller that grabs your attention from page 1 and keeps it, ramping up the tension and anxiety... At first you're not sure if the devil is real, or a delusion, or maybe metaphor?? All of the above and then some;). Some social context weaves in via surveillance, cyber crime/terrorism, identity theft, etc... Really does put a unique twist on the idea of profiling and eye of the beholder... Great pace, but it's not an action filled suspense story, but rather psychological w/ punctuating events that keep you turning pages... I appreciated the mood, which felt somber, and almost a little rainy... The central idea is interesting and the evolutionary theory is fascinating... There's some philosophizing, but it's barely noticeable, and anchors the plot well... Some real nice turnarounds and gotchas throughout, some surprising, some not, but all vividly done... A pretty clear examination of how human cruelty/ depravity permeates and percolates, and often in the most visceral of ways... Characters, major and minor, are natural and easy to invest in, even when on the pages for a short period... The narration was better than average, and doesn't detract or distract... The door was left wide open for a followup, and I sincerely hope that's the case... This is definitely different Goodkind, but paradoxically you can see the fingerprints similar to those in his fantasy works... If you're a fan you'll likely enjoy...
This is a book that could have been told in a couple of chapters. It was long and tedious with over explained theory's. I finished it but it just felt over done.
Yes. It was a good story, with themes that flow across all of Terry's books.
The brother at the beginning. He wasn't prominent, but with what time we had with him, he had a very deep impact in my mind.
She emoted very well in her performance, I enjoyed it thoroughly.
Yes, but I don't want to spoil it. It's in the last few chapters.
Definitely worth a listen from any fans of Mr. Goodkind. He's made a strong start for a new series, if he wants to continue.
Goodkind is always going to hold a special place in my heart. The sword of truth series got me into reading when i was yound so when I saw this thriller..well I was thrilled. However, the story has its flaws. I got really upset with the repetativeness of the characters. it was aggravating how slow things took to develop and then all the action happened so quickly with an abrupt ending. It was like waiting in line at Disney land for three hours to ride a ride but it ended after 3 minutes..
I love the outdoors and the warm weather!! And I never leave home with out my I-Nano. It should be surgically placed into my ear. I live and breath for books.
This book has a little bit of everything.
not what I expected, I can't wait for the next book! narrator did a good job.
The story started off as a fantastic semi-supernatural thriller, but lost a lot of precious momentum about a third of the way through. Honestly, the hour and a half of anthropology lecture was a drag and while it provided context and some background, was boring and felt like filler to an otherwise good story.
The performance was very good, and the reader did a great job of creating men's voices that weren't distracting. at times I forgot the narrator was female.
Extremely repetitive. The plot is highly reliant on boring physical conflict . It is plagued by superficiality in every area but especially in characteristic development. The book is obviously just a prelude to a sequel , the sequel of which will probably be equally just a set up for the next without any substance. The premise of civilization undergoing a dark era was entirely wasted by this author. Really a mess of a story.
