I also won this audiobook. Does come across as a cliche heavy James Bond type story which I guess some will enjoy. Even as an audiobook a bit clunky in places with the extreme detail of equipment and operating procedure. Some plotting seems a bit forced. Example. The hero starts at 1 end of a moving train. Gets to middle where a passemger has had a scuffle with the bad guy who isnt there. "Where did he go?!" He asks. Pretty obvious where he went. Quite a few parts like that and some amazing coincidences too.
Another great story and very well narrated. Looking forward to the next one in the series.
Good entertaining book
Kept drifting in and out thought for my first rather offensive
Ok for a bit of mindless escapism but the characterisation is a bit lazy and simplistic- I guess that’s why the characters have changed significantly in the Sky adaptation.
I'm glad I won this book and didn't buy it, reasonably well written but the characters are awful, the hero too good to be true, handsome, strong, brave, honest, loyal, extremely intelligent. The villain, too evil to be true, ruthless, blood-thirsty and, yes, extremely intelligent. The supporting characters are all by the book clichés too. Didn't finish it, far better books to read or listen to out there than wasting my time on this mundane action "thriller".
I'm fairly new to audio books, and have left a few behind because of boring narrators that couldn't keep me interested, but this book and narrator kept me hooked. Every chance I got, I had my earphones in gripped on the exiting fast paced story. Already downloaded the next book in the series.
The characters,the story,the conclusion.
Well narrated but a poor story I’m afraid.
