Publisher's Summary

Reporter Kate Kilroy accepts an assignment to travel on the Valkyrie, a German ship veiled in secrecy for decades after it was discovered adrift in 1939 with only one passenger aboard, a baby boy named Isaac Feldman.

Obsessed with understanding his origins, Feldman has spent a small fortune restoring the Valkyrie to try to solve the mystery. Assembling a team of experts and sparing no expense, he aims to precisely recreate the circumstances of the Valkyrie's doomed final voyage. Little does Feldman or his team know that the ship has an agenda of its own. As the Valkyrie begins to weave its deadly web, Kate realizes that she must not only save herself, but the world as she knows it.

It's a ok ghost story with geat narration.

I was hoping for a clever time travel story or something along those lines bur this was a basic ghost story - well written and narrated, but lacking.

The ship is more or less an unnecessary prop and the story never explains or uses Nazis, might as well been aliens or cavemen.

While some have posted the main themes of Nazis and time travel, this really didn't capture either of these. This is simply a ghost story set at sea with a psudo-clever twist which ultimately doesn't matter to the rest of the novel.

Great story!

I loved this story. It kept my attention through the end :-) I thought the plot was good and I was in suspense until the last chapter.

I love this story

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

Yes, and I have. The author draws the reader back and forth in time. I love ghost stories, and this is one great story. I felt chilled at times listening.

What other book might you compare The Last Passenger to and why?

Probably Twisted by Andrew E. Kaufman. Both authors and both narrators did a great job of presenting the ghost-like, psychological aspect of their stories.

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

It's difficult to say because the author builds suspense throughout the story. However, the narrator makes that suspense come to life with her powerful voice and energy.

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

Yes, but I couldn't. I had life to attend - darn it.

Any additional comments?

Excellent, five-star story and narration.

Don't waste your credit.

What disappointed you about The Last Passenger?

The plot summary sounded really good. However, the book turned out to be really contrived & did not flow well. Also the (graphic) sex scenes were gratuitous & unnecessary - as if the author thought, "Okay, time for another sex scene."
I was looking forward to listening to this book, and was really disappointed.

What do you think your next listen will be?

Something well-written. This book was not.

What three words best describe Angela Dawe’s voice?

Clear
Understandable
Professional

What character would you cut from The Last Passenger?

None.

Any additional comments?

Nope.

The plot plops

Any additional comments?

The book began well. A sad writer is chosen (for her looks?) as a reporter for an unusual journey in an old ship. As the plot thickens at the end, it becomes unbelievable. Someone who was apparently a good guy becomes the bad guy- a common plot ploy. However, his hatred and eventual demise don't seem true to his earlier character. I did not enjoy it and did not finish the book.

Different

The book started iff slow and I almost put it down. Just when I thought that is it.. the book all of a sudden picked up speed and things started happening. It turned out to be a great book. The narrarator did a great job dragging me kicking and screaming into this book.

Entertaining Sci-Fi Mystery

Where does The Last Passenger rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I am not a fan of Sci-Fi but this summary dragged me in as I had found it in the Angela Dawe reads. It had a nice flow for Sci-Fi

Would you recommend The Last Passenger to your friends? Why or why not?

Good listen if you like a mystery and Sci-Fi. This book was entertaining and a bit on the romantic side which I felt made it good but not mushy.

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

I purchased this book as I am a huge fan of Ms Dawe. I love her male voices.
See Marcia Clark Samantha Brinkman series as she makes the heroine great.
If you like romance see Tiffany Snow series my fave. Ms Dawe Scotsman voice is top notch, see Nora Robert MacGregor series

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

When Robert does his hero thing...ah and sigh!

Any additional comments?

Note I do use the new 1.25x speed to match the author's intent.

I would certainly recommend this audiobook simply because although at times you will have to stretch the boundaries of your imagination it is a story that is so engrossing you will lose yourself in it

What did you like best about this story?

Just a very good, flowing storyline with a decent ending to boot!!

Which character – as performed by Angela Dawe – was your favourite?

Angela's peformance is superb throught but for me her highlight is easily Senka Simovic

If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Mystery, suspense, thought provoking

Any additional comments?

If you haven't heard (or read this) yet and you enjoy a good Sci-fi romp this will be perfect for you.
