Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lawrence | 12/8/2013

    " Started slow. Set during the Spanish Civil War, kept reading. Did not see the twist at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lewis Weinstein | 5/7/2013

    " Confusing story about a very confusing time, but fun to read nevertheless. Several real surprises. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Metagion | 10/16/2012

    " This book was just OK; some parts were actually quite boring, to be honest. Nice period piece, but if you like how things were in Spain during the time of Franco, you'll like it; if not, pass. (You're not missing much.) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 7/8/2012

    " I didn't like this one as well as his other novels. It's a stand alone &, while I think it was as well written, it just didn't ring as true to me. Either I didn't identify with the story as well or he didn't know the subject as well. I'm not sure which. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 br4ndy | 3/24/2012

    " a pretty solid cold-war-type spy novel w/ some nice twists. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Robert | 1/25/2012

    " I've started this book a couple times. A little slow for Stephen Hunter. British narrator again; seems like a no-no for me. Will try again later. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nate Hendrix | 1/6/2012

    " I love Hunter's older books. This is a spy adventure set against the civil war in Spain prior to WW2. That's all you need to know. There will be unexpected twists and turns. But that is what you expect in a spy novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Câ„“inton Sheppard | 6/19/2011

    " Not very compelling characters and too detailed descriptions of violence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob Richard | 5/5/2011

    " I did not find that this book was as good as most of the books I have read in this genre, it was also rather slow moving compared to what I am used to. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ginny | 5/5/2011

    " I guess I just couldn't get into the Spanish Revolution during the 1920s. Not my favorite period of history. "
