Would you listen to The Equalizer again? Why?
Oh yes! This was such a good book. Long (which I like), very detail orientated (but not overly with trivial filler), great characters and an Excellent lead in to a new series.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Robert McAll. He has such a colorful history that would make a normal man bitter and hostile but he has turned his emotions to humanitarian characteristics with a twist.
What about Jeff Gurner’s performance did you like?
His performance was five star worthy.
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed Michael Sloan's style if writing. I though it was very much in the style of Robert Ludlum. I thought the book kept the pace up with out any lulls. The story unfolds in present and flashbacks that are clearly defined and easily followed. I think the publishers intro to "The Equalizer" is a little misleading because that title doesn't come into play until the last chapter or three! The entire story leading up to the title is how Robert McAll gets to that point. Don't get me wrong, it's a Great Journey and certainly worth the read/listen and credit!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
This is a reasonably well-written novel for its genre. Action was brisk. Narration was well done. Plot was sufficiently intriguing. Characters were interesting.
HOWEVER, at times, it felt like a 21 hour long product-plug for Nike.
Acknowledging that it is the novelization of a movie (which draws its roots from the TV series), by the tenth time the exact specifications of a particular Nike shoe worn by a character were described (color, model number), it was painfully obvious who the sponsors were. At one point, I was considering setting up a score card and playing "Nike model Bingo". By the end of the novel, this became an annoying distraction - and made me less likely than ever to purchase any Nike products.

I was traveling through Mexico with Robert McCall and had a ball. This is a great story that covers a lot of ground then leaves you wanting more!!! Fingers crossed Mr Sloane is writing 10 more just like it!
I just loved this book, it just kept on going, if it were 10 times longer I'd love it 10 times more! I hope there are more of this awesome character.
