What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I like different type of books, it was recommended to me, so it's just a matter of taste!
What could Wilbur Smith have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Nothing, others liked it. I enjoyed all the other books that I have read by Wilbur Smith
How could the performance have been better?
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Those in Peril?
Any additional comments?
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Enjoyable story, action, somewhat predictable plot but fast moving, worth a listen.
What did you like best about this story?
The daughter a very irritating character, woven into the story, interesting outcome. Makes you wonder why the UN doesn't eradicate maritime piracy!
I interrupted by literary reading/listening over the Easter break and slipped in Wilbur Smith's latest - Those in Peril. Rupert Degas again manages a variety of accents though some of the South African ones grated a bit to me (being an expert on this accent myself...). However, this 25 hour (yes, really) book was saved only by the narration. The plot is one of Smith's worst. He's gone for the popular and rather trashy news story approach. Gone are the African settings, the well researched locations and the characters that live with you. I've forgotten the story already, but will remember Degas's excellent performance.
