Target by Simon Kernick

Absolutely outstanding - a riveting listen - a high octane crime story with breathtaking twists and turns. One of the best of the 40 or so audio books of this genre that I have listened to whilst out walking or driving over the last 12 months. Mike Bolt and Tina Boyd at their very best. Also brilliantly read. I will definitely buy more by this author.

Excellent Thriller

I have read all of Simon Kernick's books and this is just as good and very well narrated. Not too complicated but still a page turner.

Thrilling and competently told

'Target' opens in a thrilling way and continues at breakneck speed, through kidnaps, car chases, gangsters and terrorist plots. Good narration. Very exciting and I regularly wondered how the main protagonists were going to 'get out of this one'. Surprising in parts, too. I also enjoyed 'Relentless' by Simon Kernick and I'll definitely be looking for the author's other work.

A little confusing at times

Overall, this was a great story. There were a couple of confusing/sketchy escapes by the main Villain that didn’t sit well with me.

My main issue was with one of the main characters. He was narrated in the first person. It was I said this and I did that etc. It was like the story was being told from his point of view. He was then killed. This really didn’t sit well with me. It didn’t make sense. It threw the whole story.

Having said that, I have never had a best seller or had a book published. I am not even a writer so, what do I know.

Time's skills stops Hookies kills.

Interesting switches from first person to third person in this fast moving misadventure from Master Simon Kernick. Good to have Tina Boyd back, no wonder she drinks, with the desperate scrapes she gets into. Little bit far fetched but well thought out and we'll read by Paul Thornley.

First taste of a Kernick book

What made the experience of listening to Target the most enjoyable?

Within the first 5 minutes of the book I was hooked, so many twists and turns a real enjoyable listen. Never heard of Simon Kernick utill I joined Audible I'm now downloading another of his for this months listen.

What other book might you compare Target to, and why?

Similar to Andy McNabb and Chris Ryan books without the Army connections

Which scene did you most enjoy?

Without giving too much away - Realisation that his mate was more involved that first thought

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I was kept on the edge of my seat throughout - really wanted people to live, but the story had other ideas

Any additional comments?

Will deffo listen to this one again in a few months time.
