Publisher's Summary

Deep beneath the English Channel, a small army of vicious terrorists has seized control of the Eurostar to Paris, taken 400 hostages at gunpoint - and declared war on a government that has more than its own fair share of secrets to keep. One man stands in their way.

An off-duty SAS soldier is hiding somewhere inside the train. Alone and injured, he’s the only chance the passengers and crew have of getting out alive. Meet Andy McNab's explosive new creation, Sergeant Tom Buckingham, as he unleashes a whirlwind of intrigue and retribution in his attempt to stop the terrorists and save everyone on board - including Delphine, the beautiful woman he loves.

Terrible

What disappointed you about Red Notice?

It was terrible written, the voice acting was great, I am a long time listener to Andy Mcnab, and thoroughly enjoy his Audiobooks, The Nick Stone books in particular) but this is so bad for the simple point that all his books up till now were REALISTIC. This b makes no sense, and is very Hollywood in the decisions and actions the characters make.
I didnt even finish it because it was such a bad 35 mins that I listened too. Very poor.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Not Andy Mcnab anymore if he writes more garbage like this.

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

Really great accents and timing, he was the only reason that I got as far as I did with the story. Great job.

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

Only the voice acting, the story was not worth the paper it was written on.

Any additional comments?

Do not listen. its a waste of money.

Really didn't enjoy this

I love a bit if mindless action, I love a thriller. I've enjoyed some of mr "mcnab's" previous work. But this...come on Andy. It was terrible. Predictable and just pretty much thriller by numbers. Bits felt like they'd been changed just to suit the story and overall everything was damn convenient.



Must do better. D-

Andy McNab very very poor

This has to be Andy McNabs worst book I've ever read and unfortunately this is by far the weakest.three to four hours into the audio book and I was still not hooked but totally "zoned out". I'm giving one star for Colin Buchannan as narrator who was excellent real shame about the book/storyline.

after this I will never read A.McNab again!!!!!!.

Waiting to be made into a blockbusting film

What made the experience of listening to Red Notice the most enjoyable?

It's creativity

What does Colin Buchannan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Paul Thornley would have been better

Any additional comments?

Great storyline. Albeit A little farfetched, this was an action packed story that kept me interested from the start to the finish. It was great how the story intertwined with how Tom and Delphine met, giving some good background info to the reader. This made his rescuing of Delphine from the psychopathic terrorists even more thrilling!

I'm a die hard Nick Stone fan, but loved listening to Tom Buckingham show them how it's done, good old fashioned british SAS style!

An Average But Enjoyable Andy McNab

I've read the majority of the Nick Stone series and I have to admit that "Red Notice" isn't quite up there with them but it's not too far away. The initial pace is a bit slow - the main story centres around an incident in the channel tunnel and it takes a few hours to get there. If you've read Andy McNab's work before you'll be familiar with the usual SAS build up, their base in Hereford, the bond between the soldiers etc. The characters in "Red Notice" aren't quite as strong as those in the Nick Stone series. The war criminal head of the terrorists is a bit too comic book at times and the romantic interest between the lead character Tom Buckingham and his partner Delphine is a bit melodramatic. However, these are minor gripes and they don't detract from an enjoyable read. Narration is top notch from Colin Buchannan. It's not in the same league as the mainly 5 star Nick Stone series but still worthwhile for me with a decent four stars.

I enjoyed this, Much better than Nick Stone books

What was one of the most memorable moments of Red Notice?

I liked the friendship/brotherhood realationship between the soldiers. Plenty of fistycuffs blood and bullets. The saddest bit for me was the bit about the dead mens gear being sold. (I know it is their way of dealing with the death of a friend. But still sad)

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

It took me 2 sittings

Any additional comments?

I tried 4 Nick Stone books, Then gave up. All his friends seem to die. He seems much less believeable than Buckingham. I will try the others in the series

Reasonable yarn

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I thought this a reasonable yarn . True the story line centered around the latter half of the book but I though the journey there was reasonably good. I was intrigued with the twists & turns.
