Would you consider the audio edition of The Lance to be better than the print version?

I think so as the narrator is great and gives the book a life I don't think I would have come up with on my own.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Oh yeah with all that action how could it not?


Which character – as performed by Jack de Golia – was your favorite?

I like Nick a lot but warming up to Ronnie as well. I really like the way he brings there characters to life.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

How a army of five defeated the Reich.

- Mindjacked "Librarian with chronic migraines which cuts into reading a LOT so I listen and it is awesome for me keeps me in the blogging/reviewing game."

First book I wish I could return.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

A better story
A better narration
Something plausible in the plot


Would you ever listen to anything by Alex Lukeman again?

NOPE


How did the narrator detract from the book?

Really should not try and do German accents - comes off as cheesy


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Can't think of any


Any additional comments?

I am a pretty easy hook for the Tom Clancy - Greg Isles - Brad Thor kind of book.
Alex Lukeman really has a long way to go to get in that league - doubt he can ever do it.

The Clancy corp books at least hang together - this is silly...

1. The Director of the Project is a woman - who we know nothing about - who seems way out of her league - is she an equal opportunity hire - what did she do to earn her job?

2. Early in the book the same Director loses her NSA clearance - BUT SHE HAS A DIRECT LINE TO POTUS - maybe she should pick up the phone and call him and get it reinstated.

3. We are expected to believe our hero can step right in to join POTUS's security team - REALLY?

4. We are expected to believe that two bombs that are small enough to fit in books can wipe out a mall and a city block worth of real estate. Find that very hard to believe. A gym bag maybe - a back pack - but less than a pound of something?

5. And then we are expected to believe a bomb can be planted below the site of POTUS's speech - I kinda think that we would have had that area gone over with a fine tooth comb by a security team in the real world.

6. Finally - the whole dream - sight thing is silly...

Just wish I could have the 3 hours back - thank goodness I can crank up the speed on my iPhone to 2.5...
