I enjoyed the story because I had read the first two but this reader made me crazy with his mangled pronunciations. Why the producer didn't do their job is beyond me. Pretty much ruined it for me!!
story was a mess. Hector Cross series is so bad...narrator hard to understand...very disappointed. Have been a Wilbur Smith fan for decades.
First off, this book cannot be from Wilbur Smith an immensely talented writer. He should stick to African family based stores or historical type novels where he is best. This book is terrible & the performance is even worse, perhaps the worst I have heard on Audible!!
Don"t bother with this book
I've been a Wilber Smith fan for many years and have liked some books more than others. This was a great "listen" in every way! Narration was exceptional.
This is the first book I've read by this author and I have well over 1,000 books in my library. I really don't understand the less than 5 star reviews. This book had characters who were well drawn and you cared about or despised. The action was non-stop until the end. I'd put this up there with any book by Vince Flynn, Brad Thor or Brad Taylor. I enjoyed it so much that I just went back and downloaded the first book in the series.
I truly enjoyed this book. But the story wrapped up in a mere 15 minutes. I didn't have time to digest some of the joy and some of the tragedy that was all served at once entirely too quickly.
Not really...well, maybe the BOOK but not the recording.
It seems much more disjointed than a typical Wilbur Smith book. It seemed poorly researched. The narration seemed to be a first cold read. Accents were ragged and totally misplaced. He made Texas Rangers sound like Brooklyn cabbies. Many scenes were hard to fathom because he made all the characters sound the same. Ugh.
Give up on Wilbur Smith. He had "help" with this book...and I suspect contributed little to the finished product. I hate it. He was the very best at what he did.
I wish I hadn't spent my last credit on this one. The story could have been so much more.
Read the book perhaps but don't expect realism or any real congruence of the storyline.
Scott Brick , George Guidall, Will Wheaton, anybody
