i like reading about the seals in this series. The author has true to life characters and life situations
Where does Into the Night rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It's in the 'good' section, not the 'great' one. It's important for understanding the continuation of character arcs, but Muldoon and Joan aren't that interesting taken on their own.
What other book might you compare Into the Night to and why?
Probably Over the Edge, book 3 in this series. Similarly, it features two semi-compelling main characters, with lots of secondary character development.
What does Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
The ability to 'read' while driving?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I think what this book most noticeably evoked in me was awareness that a background character that the reader might have formerly disliked and seen as simplistic and trope-ish can be brought into a "POV" role and become sympathetic and complex. In my mind, Mary Lou - prior to this book - was an insecure gold-digger effectively. In this book, the listener gets to hear more of her back story, childhood, and really her growth as she sees beyond some of her own prejudice.
Any additional comments?
What's really neat to me is the easy-to-miss small threads that tie these books together; as an example, the team mentions in this book that they are preparing for Operation Black Lagoon. Not a lot is said about the mission here, as the story ends before the mission occurs, but in a subsequent book, the operation comes up as significant to one character's backstory in particular.
