Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jeannette | 2/18/2014

    " Not the usual Stone Barrington story. Too much focus on his son. Found a bit boring. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melinda | 2/6/2014

    " Just not believable at all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 2/5/2014

    " It lacked the emotional connection from the characters you would expect with a murder and then an abortion and then an attempted murder. But with that said it was comfortable like an old pair if jeans, holes and all. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sheila | 1/27/2014

    " Despite the low rating I do like this author's books. This one, however, was slightly disappointing. I kept waiting for something to happen (which it finally does but it's over 3/4 of the way in to the book). Still, it was a nice filler, tying up some loose ends from other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don Gorman | 1/24/2014

    " Ah, Stone Barrington. Kind of like comfort food. I always read every one. The same old lines, the uber intelligent Stone always making the right decisions. I always enjoy the short time I am with him. Kind of a literary friend with benefits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandy | 1/20/2014

    " Always fun to read.....kind of like a pair of old comfortable slippers....not exciting but comfortable. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Tricia | 1/18/2014

    " I have to say that this is the first stone barrington book that I did not like. To me the pompous of the rich was just too much, I grew tired of the perfection that Peter displayed and the constant foreshadowing that Arrington would not make it through the book. The father role that Stone took on seemed so easy and almost surreal. There was a point where I thought (and partially hoped) that the series was over.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark | 1/14/2014

    " After getting about half way through the book, I found myself hoping a bomb would go off and take out all of the charterers. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nancy | 1/11/2014

    " Another typical Stone Barrington story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tdewhirst | 1/8/2014

    " I like this series but this book made me feel like I missed a lot of the storyline. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Hrn1947 | 12/26/2013

    " no one can be this fortunate. talk about everything comming up roses. now the son is as lucky as stone. unbeliveable. why do i keep reading this dreck? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 BJ | 12/24/2013

    " I love this series and I think this book is one of my favorites. It showed a whole different side of Stone Barrington. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary L | 11/23/2013

    " Just an okay book..didn't think it was up to Woods' usual standards. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Janeene Timothy | 11/12/2013

    " It was a good book but I knew who would be murdered by the 3rd or 4th chapter. No other real story plot emerged other than his son. Can see future books geared around Peter now. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 11/5/2013

    " I have read a couple other of this series and I find the writing in a style I don't enjoy. It's almost like old fashioned Sam Spade stories or something. And in the one I didn't like the TWIST that happened. Come on is all I could say after it happened. I won't say more because it would spoil it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Peter | 10/28/2013

    " THIS BOOK IS A NOVEL. THIS BOOK SHOULD BE MOREE THAN A THREE STAR BUT NOT A FOUR. THE BOOK IS WELL CRAFTED WITH A GOOD PLOT AND VERY GOOD CHARACTERS. THE BOOK WAS A FAST READ AND HELD MY ATTENTION THRO0UGH OUT. I WOULD RECOMEND THIS BOOK. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 10/23/2013

    " A fast reading book. Thought I had ending predicted but was a bit off target, but not completely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Natalie | 6/26/2013

    " Love the Stone Barrington series. This one has introduced Peter, Stone's son. A fun read but fairly predictable but still enjoyable! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 David Wrubel | 6/12/2013

    " My guilty pleasures. These books have become formulaic and predictable. Maybe Woods is getting tired of these characters, or maybe his success has made him lazy. Time to find a new guilty pleasure. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gail Stewart rumsey | 9/30/2012

    " Not one of his best and why do authors insist on killing off popular characters!?! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kelley | 7/23/2012

    " Disappointed! I have read all Stone Barrington books and this was a let down. I didn't even finish the book, but I did read the last few pages to find out the ending. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sue Radley | 7/23/2012

    " This book was a little of a disappointment. It was not his usual mytery to solve. The characters were all too perfect, kids, wife and friends all too perfect. May it a not so good reading. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alex | 5/6/2012

    " Now I want to know what is next for Stone's son. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Don Sparrow | 4/19/2012

    " I realize Stuart Woods will not win a Pulitzer Prize; but he sure knows how to entertain with his "Stone Barrington" character. In this latest in the series we meet Stone's son "Peter" and Stone finally ties the knot with the beautiful Arrington. Easy entertainment...now onto more serious stuff. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stacey | 3/19/2012

    " Probably my favorite so far, a bit different then traditional Stone books but it was nice to see the evolution. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 1/26/2012

    " Quick read - no real surprise in storyline. Usual characters in book to visit "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Al | 11/8/2011

    " One of his better books. New characters added. Surprised that he killed off Arrington after just reuniting her and Stone. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kari | 11/7/2011

    " A NY TImes bestseller??? OK..an easy read but NO substance. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna | 11/5/2011

    " I just love the Stone Barrington series by Woods. He's such an irreverent character and I always look forward to an entertaining quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joe | 11/5/2011

    " Very Good; Continuing character: Stone Barrington; Stone and his son come together in NY and the boy displays great talent; quite predictable and without much action
    "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarahb. | 11/5/2011

    " Stone is a modern American JAmes Bond. Another good story--this one loaded with cash and deals. One shuld read these books in order. Stone's son is just like him! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenda | 11/3/2011

    " Good read especially if you follow Sone Barrington. Fast pace and his usual style. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Theresa | 11/3/2011

    " I knew there would be trouble as soon as Stone got married. It was okay. Getting tired of reading about the beautiful people drowning in money. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Adrienne | 11/2/2011

    " I think it is time for me to stop reading his books....and perhaps for Mr. Woods to go re-read his early novels for inspiration. One dimensional characters that have become caricatures of their early selves. Awful! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 11/1/2011

    " Quick read - no real surprise in storyline. Usual characters in book to visit
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Judith | 10/31/2011

    " Noblesse oblige at it's worst. The outcome is inevitable after the first few chapters. It was then just a matter of when, how and where. I think Mr. Woods missed the mark by not utilizing the origins of Peter's film more. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Chris | 10/23/2011

    " Meh.

    Every little piece of this book was too pat. I enjoy the writing style of Woods and kept reading, hoping that something would happen. When it did, it was over in a couple pages.

    Definitely not the typical Stone Barrington book. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jaci | 10/20/2011

    " While I enjoyed this new book, I wasn't all that impressed. I could see what was going to happen from the very beginning. Although I did like the new characters that were introduced, we'll wait to see what happens next. "
