I have listened to other Stuart Woods books narrated by Tony Roberts and have been impressed with past books and the other series.
I have read or listened to every Stone Barrington book, as he was previously one of my favorite characters up until the last few years. It seems as if Stuart Woods is now simply writing books in order to meet his deadlines. This series has been absolutely horrible for a couple of years now, while this last book will also be the last one I download. Each book is now nothing more than a test to see how much money each wealthy character can unrealistically spend. There is no real depth or intriguing storylines within these books anymore. The first 2-3 hours of this book were useless and mind numbing.
I think Tony Roberts does a great job with his narrations. It is too bad storyline is horrific, as there is only so much Mr. Roberts can do with the material.
This booked sparked anger and disappointment because I remember when the Stone Barrington series was exciting. Apparently the primary storyline for this series is now how to spend millions and millions of dollars at a moment's notice. Until I hear a future book is the last in this series, I can't waste my time listening to any future Stone Barrington books. Such a sad decline of a once great series.
This is just rich people indulging themselves in sex and spending gross amounts of money. Very thin plot and just when you think it might get interesting, the book suddenly ends. I do not recommend this book.
Yes, but Dino's nouveau is grating and irritating.
The entire book could be deleted.
This is a ridiculous book.
Stone Barrington was a character on the periphery. New character Lawrence Hayworth not that interesting. As in many of Stuart Woods' too short novels, not much depth to plot or characters. Did he write this in an hour? Ending abrupt and unfinished. Too many of the books in this series subpar despite great characters.
Love to take my walks listening to audible books
Woods has become complacent. This is the second time I have been disappointed in a Stone Barrington book.
It would have been nice if there had been a decent story line.
His reading is fine as always. He didn't have much to work with.
Almost the entire first 2/3rds of the book
A terrible waste of a good character
Less detail about ridiculous stuff like how many shirts he purchased or what kind of engine the plane had....I was waiting for the book to get interesting...it never did
Hard to tell the difference between men speaking and women speaking. Clearly the narrator was a smoker which was a bit frustrating
I will not purchase another of these books
I have listen to all of the series of Stone leading up to this one and am a big fan. This book was just a rambling, with not focus. Not sure if I continue this series. Seems like they are just pumping out books
I love Stuart Woods, but this book was very disappointing. No real story or plot. The characters were not believable. Please bring back the mystery for Stone or end this series.
