"A thriller that entertains as well as enlightens." (Orlando Sentinel)
"Superbly crafted thriller." (Publishers Weekly)
Maybe, give another try.
Narrator put me to sleep... very monitone
Complicated and intriguing story line.
Had a difficult time following the story. Didn't like the characters, narrator droned and monitone and hard to listen.
Overall, did not enjoy this book.
Tell us about yourself!
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.
Enjoyed 1st book, might have enjoyed this book if they hadn't changed the reader. This one not good at all.
Even better than the first book. I like that the author fleshes out his characters. Excellent plot and surprises along the way.
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).
