    "Awesome book, made me go and read the earlier ones"

    This book, number 13 in a series, was the first 1 I listened to. It was so good that I've gone back and started with the first book and am working my way forward.

    The characters as well written. The story is action packed. I didn't want to stop listening.

    The reader, George Guidall, was excellent. He even got the Hebrew names pronounced correctly.

    I highly recommend this book and this series.

    "Slow Silva"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More action. It was far too slow and detailed in unnecessary areas.


    Has The English Girl turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No. Just disappointed in Silva this time.


    What three words best describe George Guidall’s voice?

    Average, lacking character


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Silva's next novel is up to his previous ones.

    "Big twist"

    I like this book. I like to listen to books in order of publication. Most authors build on their previous work. My brother talked me into listening this one out of order. He said it followed the English Assassin. Silva does build on his previous work and he did make reference to books between The English Assassin and The English Girl but it didn't get in the way.
    Silva gave this book a very nice twist. Half way through I thought where in the world is he going with this one. Then he showed us. Nice job.

    "Crummy performance"
    Where does The English Girl rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Daniel Silva shines, as always. Unfortunately, the reading does not flow,as if George Guidall must insert a comma after every phrase... ruins the reading. Oh sure, if he reads another Silva book, I'll listen, but I will not enjoy it as much. OTOH, his characterizations of Russians and other nationals seem good, considering I've never heard Russians speak in a loud voice--they always seem to mumble--nor have I heard a Marseilles patois..

    What did you love best about The English Girl?

    Character development


    What did you like best about this story?

    It had a good plot and a satisfactory ending. I had never read any of Silva's books and knew nothing of his main character. Silva managed catch-up from past novels without belaboring it. Quite satisfying, though it did blog down for a few chapters.


    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    A good narrator always places the reader at each scene. I was not disappointed. Guidall doesn't do female voices well. The ladies sounded similar, yet it wasn't too distracting.

    "The New Cold War"
    If you could sum up The English Girl in three words, what would they be?

    This book was written to the same high standards of tension, motivation and geopolitical inseight as all the other novels in the series. The twist on modern Russia as an ruthless player in economic warfare was intriguing and plausible. Well worth your credit!

    Story
    "Heir of Frederick Forsythe??"

    I may have spelled FF's name wrong, my point is that Daniel Silva writes like some of the great old writers of espionage and thrillers. The plotting, characterization, and settings and action are gripping. The hero, Gabriel, is a tough but believable Mossad agent, tracking down the kidnappers of a young English woman. The kidnapping looks at first like a standard grab for money, but as the story unfolds it becomes much deeper and more sinister. I like the hero's sidekick, a former SAS soldier who is a contract killer for the Corsican mob when introduced, but turns out to have some integrity and honor.

    I have missed having an author to read that I enjoy as much as I did the great John D. MacDonald, but I may have found one.

    Story
    "A great step in the Allon saga"

    13 times I've walked beside Gabriel Allon. Never perfect, never indestructible, always honourable and consistently brilliant. Allon is a hero for an adult. He falls, he fails and he strives and he wins.

    Considering the history, there are two long anticipated outcomes pending, not yet delivered. This is one of my very favourite Gabriel Allon stories. It's written in three parts, the first two stand alone, and the final is the way a wrap up should be done.

    Daniel Silva's characters are real, they're believable, and his insight into how the professional service agent's mind works is very compelling. We are so accustomed to western heroes being American or British, the slight Israeli provides a nice balance and his humanity makes him a joy to read and encourages anticipation for the next story.

    Daniel Silva's Allon is not James Bond, he is not any of the Seal/Ranger/Force Recon/SAS/SBS/Delta warriors. He is an artist, and art restorer, who also happens to be the best that Mossad fields. If you've never read Silva, you're missing a great deal, but start at #1 and work through the series. You'll be very glad you did.

    "Silva keeps getting better."
    What does George Guidall bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    George Guidall is truly masterful in this book. His expressed emotion, dialect and pace of script were perfect. He breathed believable life into each of the characters.

    "Classiest Assassin"

    Gabriel Allon is the best. I love every Silva book as much as the last. They are all so well written and by now I feel I am part of the team. Hopefully they keep sucking Gabriel back in.

    "Another excellent Gabirel Allon story"

    I am a big fan of Daniel Silva's books. They are a little more quirky than the average spy novel. The main character is not some all-action hero like Mitch Rapp in the Vince Flynn books (although I am a great fan of these stories too). He is a more complex, rounded character but with his own personal demons.

    The story itself is plausible, although some may think it a little far-fetched. I won't reveal any spoilers, but will say that it is a gripping plot with a number of unexpected twists to it.

    The narration is good and up to the usual standards of George Guidell, who remains one of my top narrators.

    Highly recommended.
