©2007 Don Brown; (P)2008 Zondervan
Well unfortunately the preaching of the last 2 books subliminally got to me and I forgave him those efforts and gave him another chance....big mistake....it just drips with Christian fundamentalism and never have I heard of so many people finding God, issuing prayers and quoting exerts from the bible in any one book outside of the bible...unfortunately the story just is not good
Nothing from this author
Disappointment and anger at wasting my money
you must listen to them in order to make sense
no big moments
all very much the same good beats evil good guy wins the lady
no tag line
you new from the start of the bit where they found DNA that she was not dead and that they where going to get her back
"Terrioists&Covert Missions: can it get better?"
This is the third book in the series. In each one, the stakes increase. The plots can stand alone. Situations torn for newspaper headlines always with an additional twist. Brown hasn't failed me yet. The fourth one is a chiller, too. Is the next one still in progress? I'm waiting patiently.
I have listened to several of Don Brown's books and enjoyed them all. I enjoy suspense novels and I have been looking for Christian or religious suspense because I don't have to listen to all the foul language and f*** this and that and b**** and all that stuff. I know this stuff is in the real world. I hear it all the time. I just don't want to listen to it when I am trying to relax and enjoy a book.
"Treason, Hostage, Defiance- 5 Stars All the Way"
Don Brown has done no dis-service this military fiction by keeping this series clean..it's masterfully written, packed with a suspense filled plot that will keep your mind engaged until the very end. Many dislike the British narrating..in Defiance, it's changed. This 3 bk read is worth 3 credits. Many times listening I catch myself going back a chapter or so & thinking, "ok..what just happened there?" Only a Great Author has that effect!
"what the review doesn't say"
This book as a few others I have mistakenly bought is a fundamentalist religious 'commercial' ie everybody eventually miraculously starts praying- saying things like what we were taught at Yale was wrong.
This book has been misclassified by audible.
It is offensive to discover that a book in the general 'fiction' category is thinly veiled preaching.
-like a wonderful film of smiling people really selling toothpaste.
