"[The Protector]... takes its place alongside the most innovative thrillers ever written." (Publishers Weekly)
I was surprised. This isn't my normal Author or type. I bought this one because of the reviews and I couldn't stop listening. I actully went back and played the beginning again to fully understand the plot. From now on I will pay attention to the reviews before I purchase. They were right on target.
Morrell proves once again why he has been a favorite of mine since BROTHERHOOD OF THE ROSE (1984). His plots are tight and imaginative, and just when you think you have it figured out....he turns another unseen corner and surprises you!!
One star for the plot and one because I did want to see how it ended. However, the story was melodramatic w/ too much detail about common sense activity. Many inaccuracies esp. in the medical area.
The best thrillker in many years! Morrell puts you in his car and heads down and road filled with trwists and turns. He never leaves the road, and he never slows down. Fantastic!
The Protector is one of those books that grabs your undivided attention from the start. It is a "page turner" except of course, it is audio. The characters stay in trouble from the first page to the last and it gets a bit redundant after awhile, but if you enjoy action with "no bars held"...you will love this one.
An enjoyable and satisfying story. Interesting plot and lots of action that is well paced. Characters are well developed. Some surprise twists the novel really has everything. Stefan Rudnicki does a good job with male and female voices. I enjoyed his narration of the story. Well worth the listen.
I'm not continuing with this book after the first disk because the narrator was putting me to sleep ... I might go back to it later, but very doubtful.
The speaker was so slow that I could not listen to it at all after 10 minutes. I tried to increase the speed but it didn't help. I've listened to many audiobooks and this is the first I had to stop for slow narration. I very seldom give this low of a rating.
This book hooked me in the first five minutes and kept me on edge for the whole book. It was action packed and thrilling. This was also a top rated book for me because the author managed a great story without any foul language. I've always been a fan of certain authors who can manage this and when I listen to a book filled with foul language I don't usually listen to another book by that author. I will definitely try another by Mr. Morrell. If you like good mysteries with suspense and new twists and turns throughout, this is a book for you.
