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

    A better narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    Consistent suspense


    How could the performance have been better?

    With a different narrator


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator sounded like a cross between Sydney Greenstreet and Peter Lorre, making him very difficult to understand and difficult to follow the story.His accent -- when none was necessary -- was distracting.
    This is the first Silva book I've listened to. I'd get others -- but not if they're narrated by George Guidall. I'll also avoid other books read by him.

    "This is not my idea of a good listen"

    I have always been a DS fan but this book has me yawning and wanting it to be over. How much time was spent rehashing the whole series? And the step by step drama. I'm going to return this book if they let me. Not up to DS's standards.

    "His Best Book"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    From start to finish, this is one of Silva's best books. Keeps you interested till the end. Lots of twist and turns. You think you know how it is going to end but BAM !!, another turn.
    Serously, a good read.

    "Guidall is not the right narrator for Gabriel Allo"
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of George Guidall?

    Anyone who won't give Gabriel an American accent. I like Guidall for other books, but not for this series.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Absolutely. I knew there would be plot twists and although I had guessed some of them, I was still happy to follow the plot.

    "Will buy every Daniel Silva book that comes out!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Because Gabriel Alon and the gang is so amazing. Every adventure gets better. This series never gets boring, and Daniel Silva is one of the best writers of this genre. I feel totally entertained when I'm finished reading one of his books.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gabriel, of course.


    Have you listened to any of George Guidall’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. This is one of his better characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep them coming Mr. Silva. You make some of us very happy to receive your stories.

    "The BEST of Silvia"
    If you could sum up The English Girl in three words, what would they be?

    Powerful! Dynamic! Suspenseful!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was interwoven into the story line as only Silvia can do! I figured it out only to read another chapter and have to regroup!


    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    It's difficult for me to think its only a single reader, the voices are all so unique to each character.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh YES! Thank goodness we had 3000 miles of traveling in a car!


    Any additional comments?

    I love Daniel Silvia and once again was not disappointed! Can hardly wait for the next one!!

    "Thriller of the year!"

    Daniel Silver really excels with this book, I think it's the best book I have heard this year. The narration helps, George is like honey to the ears. A beautifully balanced story full of intrigue, twists and turns. A must for thriller / spy fans.

    "Intriguing story."

    It has a rather slow start and there are so many names and characters introduced that it's hard to keep track of whose who. However, the story itself is compelling and a very good one to listen to.
