This book was a departure for Sidney Sheldon, who is usually known for plots involving romanance and adult drama. This, however, is a story worthy of the "X files", and a very good one, too. A mixture of sci-fi and intrigue, the plot moves quickly along and is loaded with action. Fans of sci-fi and suspense will like this one.
Thrilling, fast-paced, exciting
This says it is narrated by "David Duke" but the narrator is a female and not David Duke. The narrator of this book (not Duke) was so monotone throughout the novel. She could have given such a great performance with the material but it just failed. Even when there were multiple voices within dialogue it was just so bland. It's a shame.
It's throughly entertaining but, I hate to say it on an audiobook site, but read the book instead of listening to this narration.
The reading of this book is done in such a speed that left me breathless! It is very hard to enjoy the flow of the story with such a hurry. The sentences are pasted together and there is no rhythm to the text, making if much more difficult that the story deserves, being such a nice novel. The story, on the other hand, is very enjoyable, a very fun Sidney Sheldon book that changes the normal leading lady from the other books to a male spy running around the world in a global conspiracy!
This is the worst thing I have ever listened to.The narrator was pathetic, I actually found myself shaking my head in disbelief at times. The book is predicable , the story line just dumb. DOnt get it sat away
This has got to be the worst narrated story on Audible. What a pity though as the story was quite interesting.
I cannot recommend this.
Very fast moving and exciting. The story was excellent and kept listeners attention. The only negative was that it was poorly read with many words mispronounced which detracted from the story. Otherwise it was a great book.
as usual Sidney Sheldon captivates us with another good read unlike most of his books the hero in this one is a man rather than Sidney Sheldon's usual heroin it's a great read though the only thing that differs from Sheldon's normal yarn is this book has an element of science fiction but it in no way ruins the plot
When I purchased this I had forgotten that I had not enjoyed the tale. At that stage Sidney Sheldon had last his touch and the story was too superficial and flimsy. I found that the reader did a good job with a mediocre tale at best so for that reason alone I have given it 3 stars. the tale itself deserves only 1 star.
