Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
I would recommend the book to read. The author writes very naturally and knowledgeably about the military and paramilitary investigation. She also writes a terrific love/sex story. She is consistently excellent. I was looking forward to listening to the book come alive in a different way, read by someone with different inflections, and interpretations.
I would NOT recommend the audio book. The narrator is obviously a smoker, and is very phlegmy with her voices. She also has a very strident way of talking, and when she makes a point in the story she s l o w s d o w n. I can make my own interpretation of major points thank you.
She also makes everyone from the south sound like a red neck hillbilly with no teeth and no education. I believe that some of these high up Delta force types probably are not total hicks from the Tennessee Mountains.
I went back several times to try to give the story/narrator more time to grow on me. Couldn't do it - way too irritating. Even Kathleen Turner with her smoker/whiskey voice can make it soft and sublte, with inflections that are pleasing to the ear. Shades of grey - not the black and white rock hard voice of this reader. I will be watching to avoid further books narrated by her. Whereas I pick up books on purpose, narrated by the outstanding Victor Slezak, Patrick Lawlor, Phil Gigante, Dennis Boutsakaris, Angela Dawes, Frank Muller - even if I don't know the Author.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
If this book were a movie would you go see it?
