    "Disappointment!"
    What disappointed you about Paris Match?

    Too much sex and not enough substance. Very weak plot and story lines. Last Stuart Woods book, Cut and Thrust was one of his better novels. Maybe did not spend much time cranking this one out.


    Has Paris Match turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Have read every Stuart Woods book. This was the weakest one.


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

    You can't get a better reader/narrator than Tony Roberts!


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Love Stone Barrington and the usual characters.


    Any additional comments?

    Always fun to feel like I'm jet-setting with Stone and his friends, relatives, and enemies.

    Audible started me reading fiction again. What a treat to have professional actors narrating a book I may not have had the time to "read".

    "Not worth a credit!"

    Too many love starved women fighting over him. Dumb and dumber. The sex scenes were vulgar and unnecessary Way too much political yada yada.Overall a very dull read. I have read most of the Stone Barrington books but this one was ludicrous. The last one should have warned me not to pr-order. Never again. Even Tony Roberts couldn't save this lemon.

    "One of the better ones"
    Would you listen to Paris Match again? Why?

    Even though I do enjoy Stone's sexual high jinks, it was nice that he wasn't looking for somewhere, anywhere to put his d**k in.
    Everything centered around a main story and it was more cohesive.


    What other book might you compare Paris Match to and why?

    Can't come up with any. Stone Barrington is a unique character. I always laugh over something Dino and Stone do or say.


    What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?

    I'm kind of biased because l've always loved him as an actor but I must say, a couple of times, I did not think it was Tony.


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

    Yes. I WAS PISSED OFF BY THE WAY IT ENDED!!! Mr. Woods if I ever see you in person, I'm going to give you a talkin' to!


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed this one. It was a bit different than the other's.

    "Good book for escapism."

    I never knew that Paris had such intrigue. So did Kate win? What type of jet is a Mustang with side-by-side seating?

    "Never Again"

    Every time I listen to a Stone Barrington novel, I say "never again". I think I even returned one of them. They are preposterous. (He gets invited to spend election night in the Lincoln Bedroom, for goodness' (well) sake. One of his girlfriends is the campaign director for the First Lady, who is running to succeed her husband. He is under the protection of the CIA, sleeping with three women, flying around in a Gulfstream, and opening a hotel in Paris. You could make this up yourself. Never again.

    "Suspense at its best"

    Unbelievable event developments with no indication of what was to occur next. A definite attention holder and well read. Great book.
