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.

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.

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.

You unlock this door with the key of imagination.

So I read the handful of the reviews posted about this book. And personally I find a deplorable that a person has never written more than a 2 paragraph review would demean the hundreds and thousands of hours that an author puts it into a hundred thousand word novel but thats off topic. A great many of them like to compare this book 21 one by Jeremy Robinson. However what seems like comparing apes to mammoths. Jeremy Robinson likes to write epic adventures beyond the scope of reality though this one is pushing the boundaries of your imagination I find it more like The Twilight Zone on scope. It's more like a Rod Serling adventure into what is possible as opposed to an epic JRR Tolkien or Jeremy Robinson adventure where the objective seemes to be " let's see how far we can push into the absurd before people will stop reading." Personally I found it very well worth the read, characters complex and interesting and push the boundaries of social norm. Its difficult to blend two realities seamlessly as the author has done it in this piece of work with a truly haunting setting. Its very much like the Outlook Hotel on the seven seas. What should also be noted is the true and very dark history that set the stage for this novel, as well as the complex folklore that sets the stage for the dramatic events in the central plot.

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.

Good storyline

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

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.
