Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Story is based on an egotistical character with overtones of christian religious beliefs. Totally unrealistic feats being done by the main character in the book. Had to return for credit.

Could you see The First Hostage being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Only in Donald Trump's tiny mind.....

Interesting characters and good listen

Story is a little dated since it was copy written in 2001but still was worth the listen. Reader was very engaging.

Would have never been able to pronounce the names

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

Yes, John Lee is great.

Have you listened to any of John Lee’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Just as good as the earlier ones.

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

The description of the blacks in the South and their treatment.

Any additional comments?

Follett has done it again. Character development was outstanding and brought back some early childhood memories and a little bit of a history lesson.

Not a Tom Clancy book!

Would you try another book from Andy McNab and/or Clive Mantle?

Maybe.

Would you ever listen to anything by Andy McNab again?

No. Predictable plot and story line.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Clive Mantle?

Maybe; did like his accent and reading style.

Do you think Crisis Four needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Story line is dated.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Great listen. Auslander did a terrific job in the read.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Shalom tells his own story with a lot of tongue in cheek humor.

Have you listened to any of Shalom Auslander’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No.

Great way to learn some history

Like Follett's previous books, this one generates great character development and personalities for fictional people who probably really did act and behave the way written in the book. It's easy to see why history evolved the way it did and how Hitler came to power from the ashes and apparent stupidity of WWI.

John Lee, the reader, is fantastic and complete joy to listen to !
