ugh! I almost quit in the middle, but was hoping from some redeeming turn at the end. NOT! I have to guess that the Irish brogue of the reader was either fake or he was extremely bored too.

So happy to finish this book!

I had to make myself finish this book -- it was the most tedious book I have listened to in a long time -- can't tell you how many times I skipped tracks -- only to still be in the long long explanations, thoughts, ramblings of this poor, unfortunate character. While he was a likeable criminal, the writer just made me want to see him die or move, or grow a brain. Had the other books in my rental listing, but removed them for now. And, I hear there might be a movie -- oh no!

This is a great book. I really enjoyed it. I wish Adrian McKinty continues along the same lines. I immediately ordered all of his books available on Simply audiobooks

I really like the Michael Forsythe series. I am now listening to the last one and can't wait to see what kind of trouble he gets into next.

This is a truly great trilogy. McKinty has a real uniqueness about his style and subject.

I thoroughly enjoyed this varied and violent story. I really liked that the narrator had an Irish accent. It added alot to the narrative.

Funny and Intense

What a great book. Now, it's not for everyone, that's for sure. But if you like a humorous and at times horrifying story, a sad-sack good bad-guy main character and a terrific reading in an Irish accent, you'll like this. The main character, Michael Forsythe, is a relunctant hood, not a bad man, exactly, but when pushed, not someone you'd want to cross. The story is shocking and shockingly funny. It's not for the faint of heart, but definitely made me want to listen to the sequel...
