A little slow for my taste. Some disappointment at the ending. May be a good book for some but not for me.
Narration was spot on & enhanced the fast moving action. Voice was enough to keep reader interested & not be put to sleep. Voice added to experience of journey.
Fast paced action, not too many idle moments, intrigue & appropriate finale, leaving wishing for more.
The action through the big cities in Europe was exciting & difficult to believe he survived the chase scene. The intrigue to Zurich to Germany. His female companion added to the excitement as well.
Could not put the book down because you wished to see what happened next.
The latter part of the novel is loaded with action & later turns into a more typical 'shoot-em-up' espionage chiller. Overall, fans will enjoy the action & the finale.
I really enjoyed the story, however the narrator was driving me crazy. Gabriel Allon is Israeli..not German. Why he was reading Gabriel with a German accent was beyond me. The narrator of Kill Artist hit the accents perfectly. This narrator I would rather he just use no accent at all.
Suspenseful Silva thriller with interesting insight into Switzerland 's not so well known involvement with Nazi Germany during WWII. Easy read that holds your interest throughout.
Not Silva's best Gabriel Allon but quite entertaining. Lee's Israeli accent needed work (sounds too mittel European).
Story was compelling. I wish there was possibly not so much truth in it. But sadly I guess that is not the case.
This is a great audiobook, gripping and very well read by John Lee. I listen in the car, and had that feeling more than once that my destination was approaching too fast. Time, I need more time. Can't stop listening now!
Terrible book. I cringed throughout. The dialogue and writing were so predictable and formula. Who gives these books 5 stars?
I enjoyed the story, but sometimes too much explanation and I would lose the momentum of the action. The reader is ok, but again slow.......
Understanding the intriguing plot was fun, because of excessive explanations I tended to lose interest at times and would have to replay a segment as I just knew I missed something.
Read a bit more upbeat
Could have been a bit shorter.....
If you're a fan of international espionage, you'll enjoy this. Lots of travel, intrigue and great characters.
