Whilst I found some parts of the series frustrating with so many conflicts that could not be. But this final chapter did well to close all the various storylines.

Long and tedious

I thought, well it's a classic so why not... I found it tedious and complicated and aside from small sections with pace, it was a major disappointment, spending too long trying to get its point across it verge on going up its own backside! Look elsewhere for a good read.

I loved listening to this! It is written in a simple style that a numpty like me could understand!

Wasn't too sure with first five minutes, but wow, it sucked me in so quickly after that! I can't wait for next two books and have bought the hardback for my Mum. 10/10!

Could not get enthused by this, poor by his normal standards. His later works are far better to listen to.

Normally there is someone or some thing that you can get behind, this book is devoid of that. I stuck with it to the end and was disappointed further. Spend your credit elsewhere. The Woodcutter is an excellent read.

A truly unexpected great book. The reading is superb. This was my first Ian Fleming book and it won't be my last, so so much better than the film.

A great return of Jake!

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

This is an excellent book that keeps you guessing to how and why from start to finish. The narration, is perfect for the book and you feel like you are there amongst the characters. Would I recommend this book? well five stars says yes! If you like John Grisham then you will love this book, even if you have read A Time to Kill. Best book I have done this month, and I have read about 15!

Worse reading voice!

Managed ten minutes before losing the will to go further. I love this authors other books, and perhaps this is a great book, however the smoothness of delivery is key, and this the equivalent of corse sandpaper...

Disapointing and confusing

Whilst I have read a lot of Richard North Pattersons book and loved them, this was trying to recapture the hieghts of Exile, but failing. I wanted to enjoy this book so much but in the end started to wish it was over. I finished the book but was under-whelmed, not just by its plot, but how I could not empathise with the characters like in other books by the author. I do hope his next book will be a return to form. One Star seems enough. Not worth the credit used.... But if you haven't read Exile, try it, excellent book!
