Barry Eisler does a good job narrating his own books, I prefer his versions over the others. Rain is a fun hero character, and the stories are always exciting. It's easy to get tired of a series if you keep listening to the same one book after book, so I take breaks and go elsewhere, then return. This series is as entertaining as Mike Connelly, Vince Flynn or Brad Thor material, great authors but I can also tire of them. It's like anything else I guess. This idea targets a review that said Eisler's series was same old, same old. They all are after a while. Anyway, glad I found John Rain! If you like thrillers, give this a whirl, you won't be disappointed!

Winner Take All was originally published as Rain Storm with Brian Nishi narrating. I listened to Rain Storm three years ago and rated it 4 stars, but did nor write a review. With Barry Eisler, the author, doing the narration (and also retitling the novel) it is a much better listening experience. Winner Take All is a solid 5 star John Rain novel with Eisler doing the narration. Eisler now narrates all of his own books.

Again, my review does not change much. For Eisler books . Excellent narration, characters, full book emersion .
Gifted book many times . I am NOT a writer , so with a review all I can say is ? for this style of book series, it is very good . I got brave and gave this book to people who have not lived in Japan , as I have . I can no longer see well enough to read a book and appreciate very highly good narration .
As always - I state Eisler is one of the very few , who can actually narrate his own books to a high standard . I never reccomend author narrated books . Eisler is the exception.
