"Decent enough . . ."
I enjoyed listening to this book, it's a decent enough thriller. I'm not familiar with the rest of McNab's work but this was good enough that I'll probably listen to more in the future. It's well narrated by Paul Thornley but for me at least it really didn't grab me or stand out particularly in terms of cleverness or real excitement. In short a decent enough production, worth a listen but not really one that is likely to live in the memory a long time.
"Another good instalment by Mcnab"
Ok, I have given this audiobook 4 stars. I didn't want to go one extra star either way, but that's only because I personally didn't get into it. It wasn't great but it wasn't bad. The story was ok, the characters were ok, plenty of action as per and I found myself learning about all the different ways I could break a man's neck.
In Stone's mission, you will be taken through the Molvodan underworld of woman trafficking that are used for sex, full of gangster ex pats and violence, the back streets of Amsterdam, Holland, until the penultimate conclusion of the adventure ends here in UK, with a nice little twist.
Nick has a way with women, maybe not his slick charm or charismatic chat up lines, but more in his unique ability to save them from the gruesome rape and bloodthirsty death that awaits them. Maybe not up to Hugh's standards, but he's up there.
Nick is joined by another girly friend on his mission to Moldova, Anna, one that he has a particular soft spot for. There's no rumpy pumpy, ex SAS soldiers are way too tough for any of that nonsense.
Give this book a go. I liked it but didn't love it. I would happily listen to it again as it was entertaining, but not riveting like some of Mcnab's other literature hits, but I think that may just be down to personal preference.
"Kept my interest"
An enjoyable story and I particularly liked the narrator. He made the story atmospheric and realistic.
I would definitely look out for more Andy McNab books in the future.
Brilliant book with excellent narration, gripping story line you have to stay on the ball for, would recommend!!
Lots of swearing and violence!
"5* all the way"
It is not too often I give a full 5 stars
This was a gripping music listen from the get go.
"Gripping, surprising, entertaining!"
As usual, Paul Thornley gives an outstanding performance as Nick Stone. The 'drama' scenes sneak up on you as always and you find yourself all of a sudden 'in the sh**'!
i liked how Anna and Nick were on the same wave length and always switched on, making these two characters equally important in the story.
I don't know. Just, incredible!
No but I found myself finishing it very quickly.
Another reviewer has said that this isn't as good as other Andy McNab novels, but I beg o differ. I think it is as good as any he has written.
A good story with nice twists, if not a little predictable,but why must the narrator accentuate in so many unnecessary places, let it down a little. Would listen to more McNab stories if this wasn't so annoying.
