The writing is very mechanical - lacks any substance, grace or fluency. Dialogue is stilted and unbelievable. The narrator is the worst I have heard - lack of emotion and monotone give the impression it is electronically generated.
I was really surprised how bad this was as I usually enjoy Ludlum's books. I wont be buying this one - it is a good candidate for Audible's return policy.
Admittedly only heard the first chapter (free) but am completely hooked, not my usual thing at all but will be getting the full book as soon as I can afford some more credits.
So far it's been we'll paced and gripping. Clear who is who and what's going on.
