Stay away from stupid remarks of the characters.
Can't name any.
It just barely cleared the threshold for my continuing to listen.
Stilted dialogue. Book started out promisingly but ended lame. Very disappointing. Witty remarks did not seem to fit, they were forced.
Sound editing -nonexistent...lots of repeats and uneven voice level changes mid-chapters.
Dialog-smug, predictable, and poor-mans' copycat of Jack Reacher.
Narrator-good at voices/accents...perhaps given better material I'd warm up to him.
a Tech Exec who loves the stories about what could be and what should have been. Mixed with histories told from an outside perspective.
The writing was good quality. The story line was a bit predictable. Sort of like adventure movies on a Saturday afternoon on basic cable. Not a complete waste of time if you are looking to escape reality for a while.
Kept waiting for something really interesting or exciting to happen. It didn't. Too many "cute" tough guy phrases, like a tired Bruce Willis was the main character or meant to be. Narrator helped make a bad book better... pass on this one.
The story kept my attention with a little action and, surprisingly, a lot of history. Well worth the time and money. Would recommend this 'easy to listen to' book for those who are looking for a book that they can listen to in a day. Not as suspenseful as I like but a good audio book nonetheless.
There were a lot of technical glitches in the recording. Repeated sentences and a couple apparent skips as well. A good read. Great diversion for treadmill time.
