Ruined

A good book, but a terrible audio-book. Ruined by a clumsy and comical narrator. Awful accents, mumbled parts and stereotypical voices poorly thought about.

Pathetic

The narration was pathetic, like a cartoon - if this is what "abridged" means then I will never read another.
Perhaps there is an unabridged version as I have read other Dale Brown works and quite enjoyed them.

Not what I expected

Having read several of Brown's novels, I figured I couldn't mill with this book. How wrong I was. Compared to his other stories, captivating and exciting, Brown misfired on this one. Too much space was taken up by useless details that had nothing to do with the story, and the story itself was weak, and dare I say, Boring.

The audio was not even as good as the book. It was slow and even made the story worse for the tempo. Oh, then the character voices. Russians, Chinese, Filipino, and American voices were terrible cliches of what they could have been. They all made me think of the French soldier in The Holy Grail, who, when asked if he was French, replied "Of course I am French! Why do you think I am speaking with this outrageous accent?!"

If you actually buy and listen to this book, you have the patience and understanding of a saint.
