Would you try another book from Robert Ludlum and/or Michael Prichard?
This is the first time I have felt the need to comment on a novel. I spend a lot of time driving so I go through a book quickly. I tend to go for novels that last awhile. I was pleased when I saw this book because I really like novels by Ludlum, having read most of them. This is the first one I've had from Audible. The story might be OK - and I say might because it is fairly difficult to follow if the narration is hard to follow. I have to say the man reading it is truly bad. It is impossible to understand who is saying what. There is no pause between sentences - they just seem to run together. Think back to High school ( or maybe Grammar school) - remember when someone had to stand in front of the class and read something? Monotone, kind of slow, unsure of him/herself? That's Mr. Prichard's narration in a nutshell. The man has a dynamic voice - and I'm sure he has had a great career doing commercials - but please, please keep him away from novels.
Would you be willing to try another book from Robert Ludlum? Why or why not?
Only with another narrator.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Michael Prichard?
Sadly, I believe anyone would be better suited to narrate.
Did The Apocalypse Watch inspire you to do anything?

I have read a lot of books by Robert Ludlum. They are all kind of the same, but fun to read and you really want to find out what happens in the end. So that is the reason I bought this one. But I found out it is kind of outdated, unconvincing, and cheesy. But the worst, to my taste, was the performance by Michael Prichard. The tone of his performance is torturing.
