loved it but didn't like the false American accent. I listen to a lot of American narrators and this just sounded too false. Good story. Good plot.
if this is your first incounter with privert and jack your missing out on very well told storys good plots get them all if you can
A good follow-up to Private London. I enjoyed the twin narration of hero and villain and thought the authors captured the Olympic setting very well.
My only (small) criticism is that the authors were not always true to real life in Britain when describing actions taking place in the UK and whilst such occurrences do not spoil the story, they did momentarily distract this British reader's attention away from the tale.
Ok - I seem to have rated this 4 stars...yet thinking about how much the book has meant to me now...looking back....mmmmm. I liked it, I enjoy the private series a lot. But at the moment this one ranks the lowest. I will certainly read it again, but for me it lacked mystery, The ultimate villan trying to be tracked down was too straight forward despite the novel generally being well written. The suspense generally was good with solid twists and I wasnt sure which way the story would go but ultimately it was bound into a rather obvious conclusion. Read the other private novels first.
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Read this just before going to London 2012 so it helped put it into context and was a great read as it was so plausible. Just as the games were years in the planning, with all that London has seen, it seemed plausible that terrorists could have been planning for years too.
You don't need to have attended to read this though- the plot twists and turned and the pressure of time is palpable as it reaches its conclusion.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Anyone who had a cool electronic gadget gets my vote!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The ending was a real cliff-hanger- not able to get out of the car if I was listening in it and keen to get home from work just to turn it back on again. Really quite addictive.
Good story set around the Olympics. The audio equivalent of a page turner, with enough unexpected turns to keep the plot interesting but not confusing. Have listened to it several times.
