Slow build to a great end
If I was looking for an entertaining thriller to listen to with others or to distract me, say on a long car trip, I would definitely consider Cash Burn again. As far my regular audiobook consumption I think think most of the books appeal comes from the first listen, when the characters and story are still unknown.
If you enjoy thrillers like those by Clive Cussler or John Grisham then I would recommend Cash Burn. It is a fun paperback listen. If you're looking for something deep or substantial this isn't it.
To me the first half of the story was slower than I would have liked and as a result it took awhile to get pulled into the story. The second half, while more exciting, felt contrived (in a Clive Cussler kind of way, which isn't necessarily bad for thrillers). About half way through, when a major plot element was added, I almost immediately had a pretty good idea how it was going to end.
Jess Hays did an excellent job narrating. It seemed like he thoroughly enjoyed reading the book and it was definitely NOT a monotone or boring narration. His rendition was very active and helped make the story more exciting!
The first half of the book was slow and I kept putting it down. The second half was much more exciting and despite knowing where the story was going I definitely wanted to finish it all one sitting.
I think Cash Burn was a lot of fun and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an entertaining thriller.
