    "Great, great fun."
    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The book has a very fast pace punctuated by fairly short chapters, which made the book seem to fly by. It certainly kept me on the edge of my seat.


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

    Definitely!


    Any additional comments?

    This is the third Alex Lukeman "The Project" book I've read and I've thoroughly enjoyed them all. I've never seen so much action poured into one book, and the action starts on the first page and doesn't let up. From Tibet to Antarctica to Venezuela to Israel to Washington, D.C., the bodies and bullets pile up, along with rocket launchers, Nazi submarines, tranquilizer darts, cursed swords, and nuclear bombs. It could be way over the top but Lukeman handles it with skill and aplomb. And, when it does go over the top, that's just part of the fun.

    The audio version is a special treat. The narrator, Jack de Golia, is excellent. There are many characters and accents to convey, and he does so in a way that helps you keep track of the different characters while entertaining you with his sense of theater. He seems to particularly revel in narrating the "super villain" characters, whom he delights in portraying as evil genius Bond-type masterminds. Great, great fun.

    "First book I wish I could return."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A better story
    A better narration
    Something plausible in the plot


    Would you ever listen to anything by Alex Lukeman again?

    NOPE


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Really should not try and do German accents - comes off as cheesy


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Can't think of any


    Any additional comments?

    I am a pretty easy hook for the Tom Clancy - Greg Isles - Brad Thor kind of book.
    Alex Lukeman really has a long way to go to get in that league - doubt he can ever do it.

    The Clancy corp books at least hang together - this is silly...

    1. The Director of the Project is a woman - who we know nothing about - who seems way out of her league - is she an equal opportunity hire - what did she do to earn her job?

    2. Early in the book the same Director loses her NSA clearance - BUT SHE HAS A DIRECT LINE TO POTUS - maybe she should pick up the phone and call him and get it reinstated.

    3. We are expected to believe our hero can step right in to join POTUS's security team - REALLY?

    4. We are expected to believe that two bombs that are small enough to fit in books can wipe out a mall and a city block worth of real estate. Find that very hard to believe. A gym bag maybe - a back pack - but less than a pound of something?

    5. And then we are expected to believe a bomb can be planted below the site of POTUS's speech - I kinda think that we would have had that area gone over with a fine tooth comb by a security team in the real world.

    6. Finally - the whole dream - sight thing is silly...

    Just wish I could have the 3 hours back - thank goodness I can crank up the speed on my iPhone to 2.5...
