Would you consider the audio edition of Direct Action to be better than the print version?
Absolutely, Don's depiction of the story made it come off the page. The character's become real and you forget you're not really there. He handled all the characters with a unique change in voice tone. Subtle, not overdone. Even from the female characters to the military rough and rugged voice. I am now a fan for life!
What did you like best about this story?
You will have trouble putting it down. Great read. Decard is one of the good guys on a very thin line between doing what is right and what evils he has to live with. He must recruit himself into Liquid Sky a group so heinous and evil . Decard must find out how high up the orders come from. Very high up. The book has it all, action, violence, betrayal. You will actually be frightened by what you read because you know it's not all fiction by any means.
Which scene was your favorite?
Excellent read - Full of action at a fast pace. Found a writer that not only writes a thrilling and captivating book but he knows his subject.
I enjoyed listening to it from start to finish, no dull moment with Deckard and his crew, which makes it hard to pick one scene, I loved that romantic scene on the beach, with his girl. It was hot, hot, hot!
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I consider this set of books as the most realistic of the genre, in terms of tactics, weapons, etc. The story wraps that action goodness around a tight read that leads one to wonder how much of it was fiction versus genuine as most of it is plausible. I'm a big fan of the 'fearless assassin' genre and these books are the best of the bunch, hands down. Could not put it down.
Any additional comments?
It’s gritty, it’s fast paced, it’s got more bang than a breaching charge and it's balls to the wall from cover to cover. Murphy’s latest, Direct Action, is all of this with a very healthy slab of contemporary world events thrown in for good measure. Yeah sure it’s a little controversial in parts but hey, it’s fiction, so it’s not necessary real...or is it? It’s the blending of fact and fiction that makes this book such a great read. If you’re interested in the murky world of SOF and the even darker world of contracting then this is the book for you. Another great audiobook narrated by Don, that comes highly recommended.
