Most Helpful

A brilliant story, wonderfully read.

What did you like most about Vessel?

The plot - it's both intricate and fast-paced, with a clever back-story that feeds the main narrative at just the right point.


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

If I had to, I'd compare it to Dan Brown's novels, only much, much more enjoyable. It's well-written, for a start.


Have you listened to any of Craig Beck’s other performances? How does this one compare?

No but I might do now.


Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Well, yes, but I don't like spoilers. The original approach to Jerusalem. And the ending.


Any additional comments?

I'd thoroughly recommend this book, genuinely exciting, engaging characters, a fast-paced and witty narrative style, great twists, ably delivered in Audible.

Great story

If you could sum up Vessel in three words, what would they be?

Exciting
Fantastical
(Easily) believable


Have you listened to any of Craig Beck’s other performances? How does this one compare?

I've not got any audible narrated by Craig but he did a great job with one so would definitely listen to others that he narrates


Any additional comments?

I received this book in an audio format from the author is exchange for an honest review. Thank you John.
Action packed and fast paced for the majority of the book. The main characters were very likeable and I found myself 'rooting' for them very early on.
My only (tiny) criticism is that there was a part in the story that went on a bit longer than I thought was necessary and if I had been reading rather than listening I would have skimmed over this part.
That said, if you enjoy a fast paced thriller you'll like this one. It has the added ingredients of history and conspiracy theories thrown in as well!
