Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Derek | 2/20/2014

    " One of the best non-series Ludlum books I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrick | 2/20/2014

    " Starts off slow, but then becomes riveting. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Ellen | 2/12/2014

    " Ludlum knows how to craft an intricate plot, I'll give him that, but this book is way too long, and unnecessarily detailed. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dan Scali | 2/7/2014

    " For what it is I'd probably give it three or four stars and say I liked the da Vinci code better. I guess I'm not so into these suspense thrillers anymore. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Spencer | 2/7/2014

    " Formulaic. Listened to it in the car. Passable entertainment. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul Byer | 1/26/2014

    " It's written by RObert Ludlum...no not by the pretenders tot his throne by THE Robert Ludlum. So it need not be reviewed...point me towards one BAD Ludlum ! I dare ya! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michael | 1/23/2014

    " Robert Ludlum books are implausible to the extreme; once that fact is accepted, they are great fun. This was my favorite of the few Ludlum novels I have read. This book wasted no time getting to the action, and the ending was both plausible (relatively speaking of course) and unexpected. Somebody always ends up alive who was presented as dead in these books, but the villain and his path to power were both interesting in this case. Furthermore, the protagonist only escaped a gun to the head one time in this book, which is pretty good. I hate it when killing machines suddenly refuse to pull the trigger on the star of a book. It always seems like a completely unnecessary plot device. For a relaxing book, this book is great fun and sufficiently different from other spy thrillers to make it worth reading. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ryan Winn | 1/19/2014

    " This was a good book. With that said it took me like three months to read because it was like one hundred pages too long and a little bit to complex for the medium it was passed through. Janson is an intriguing character but this book just seems a little off. Would make a great movies "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 C. | 1/18/2014

    " This was by far the worst Ludlum book I have ever read. It was like a bad fiction movie full of surrealism. The protagonist knew anything & everything in the world & was always saved by the heroine in the most unbeliveable fashion. I wouldn't recommend this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Curtis | 1/18/2014

    " It was a good book, but way to long. At least 100 pages too long. Exciting and I couldn't have guessed the ending. Having said that, still run of the mill spy novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Meg J. | 12/24/2013

    " Interesting story, but not really my cup of tea. At the end of the book, I'm not sure how I feel about the characters, the story, or the government! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Aspyn Hurn | 12/23/2013

    " Loved it, suspenseful, heart-felt, everything a girl could ask for really. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jonathan | 12/20/2013

    " 3 stars to Bourne's 4. Passable plane reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lew Goettner | 12/12/2013

    " This is my favorite of the Ludlam books I've read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane Lee | 11/25/2013

    " Lots of I-did-not-see-that-coming twists. Awesome! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lawrence | 11/20/2013

    " Non-stop ride. I have to concentrate to keep up with the twists and turns, but the effort is worth it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Diane | 9/15/2013

    " Although hard to believe the hero could get out of so many scrapes, it was an exciting read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jared | 9/1/2013

    " A classic Ludlum novel, my favorite of all his books. He goes into detail about weaponry and security systems, perhaps too much detail. But the plot is intriguing and the ending is excellent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Larry | 3/21/2013

    " A fast-paced, exciting ride. Not probable but a good read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bruno | 2/7/2013

    " Enjoyable. Even if some parts are a bit slow, and it's hard to believe Janson never gets hurt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve Toyne | 11/1/2012

    " A very exciting read, one of Ludlum's best, certainly one of his better endings. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Morgan Van Ness | 9/15/2012

    " The Janson Directive follows a standard Ludlum pattern. Estranged super-killer doesn't know who he can trust as the world as he knows it turns against him. It's an easy read and a page turner, but nothing to write home about. I enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ron | 9/5/2012

    " Nancy 4.5 stars; Ron 5 stars "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dom | 9/4/2012

    " I found this book plodding at times, but Ludlum kept enough plot twists coming to make it worthwhile sticking it out. Not his best work, but still better than most out there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nancy | 7/21/2012

    " Nancy 4.5 stars; Ron 5 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shorewalker | 6/14/2012

    " A good read that has a lot of twists and turns (true Ludlum) with a great ending. Do get a little tired of the great detail payed to locations, clothing, weapons, etc. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dave | 3/12/2012

    " RL passed away over a decade ago, This is as good as the originals. "
