Separation of Power audiobook cover art

Horrible Narration

Performance

Story

What did you love best about Separation of Power?

The story flows, and I still Love Mitch Rapp!

Would you be willing to try another book from Vince Flynn? Why or why not?

Yes, but not if Kliben is narrating it!

How could the performance have been better?

Narration by someone else! Go back to Nick Sullivan!

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

No

Any additional comments?

Nothing ruins a great audiobook more - than a horrible narrator........ I won't be buying any Kliben narrated audiobooks again - for sure. Mitch Rapp is an awesome character, but Kliben made him into a total whiner/weenie....... and I really didn't like Anna Riley Character much..... she's everything a woman shouldn't be..... whiney and selfish! The story itself was good. I'll listen to the next, in the hopes that Guidall gives a better narration.

Would you consider the audio edition of The One Man to be better than the print version?

Yes

What was one of the most memorable moments of The One Man?

When Nathan finally sees his sister again.

What does Edoardo Ballerini bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings it alive. He was an excellent narrator for this novel.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Yes, when they were discovered and caught at the end...... I was so upset that they were caught, but was very happy when they ultimately escaped.

Any additional comments?

A very good book........ very sad how the Jewish families endured so much at the hands of the sick twisted psychotic Nazis. Andrew Gross keeps you at the edge of your seat...... this is one book/listen, I had a hard time putting down -- and what makes it all that much better is that Ballerini does an excellent narration.

Lindstrom brought the story to life.

What disappointed you about Think of a Number?

The delivery of the story. Unrealistic wording - for sur!.

What did you like best about this story?

The twists and turns were good. Not really a Thriller.

Would you be willing to try another one of George Newbern’s performances?

Maybe ?! He was also a bit disappointing.

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

The core concept/story was good.

Any additional comments?

He could have done better. Come down to earth!

Justin Cronin nails it. Beautifully written, I loved the whole series, and the ending was so natural. All just flowed. Scott Brick is the perfect narrator for this audiobook!

What did you love best about The Bone Collector?

The story is chilling, and Deaver does an awesome job of keeping you interested to the end. The story flows nicely.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Amelia Sachs. Because Deaver makes her character strong and interesting. She makes you smile and aspire to be like her.

Would you be willing to try another one of Connor O'Brien’s performances?

No! O'Brien is the worst narrator I've ever listened to. Deaver should have picked Scott Brick.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The part that moved me was when Lincoln had an attack and Amelia helped Tom revive him. It was very graphic and you could almost feel being right there. Deaver is an excellent Author.

Any additional comments?

If O'Brien is narrating any more of Deaver's books, I won't be buying the audio book - for sure.

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Maybe someone reading the book - instead of listening to the audio version.

How could the performance have been better?

I think Dick Hill was not a good match for this book.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Flash?

?

Any additional comments?

When I read the description of this book, I was excited to listen to it....... However, it was tough to get through it! The story/content was good, but I think the author changed gears too fast from one scene to another. I had to re-wind, because I was lost most of the time. Not sure if the narrator was wrong for the book...... or what..... but it was tough to keep listening. I almost stopped and asked Audible for a refund, but because the story itself was okay - I didn't.

Would you consider the audio edition of Unseen to be better than the print version?

Yes

What did you like best about this story?

All of it! It was easy to follow, held my interest from beginning to end. The love story between Sara and Will is so sweet. It held just the right mix of intrigue, danger and love. Lena is such a great character. She's honest and I believe there are more Lena's out there than we think!

What about Kathleen Early’s performance did you like?

I really enjoy listening to Kathleen Early. She is so natural. Every book she narrates, does the book justice for sure!

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

Pretty much ! I enjoyed it.

Any additional comments?

Karin Slaughter always nails it! I've listened to every one of her books. Early and Slaughter are a great team!
