Unfinished Business is an amazingly terrifying tale with a bizarre twist that leaves one pondering whether to cheer or not. The tale begins with eighty-two-year-old Eugene and young Laura, two people who unintentionally meet and share secrets of their past.
Justin Fulkerson has taken two people and demonstrated just how small the world can be and what secrets do. The story moves slowly at first, building each character fully. When he hits the climax of their story, all I can say is “what a ride!” Fifty-six minutes short yet it packs a wallop!
The narrator, Alexander James, performs the novel expertly. His voice is smooth and deep, with just the right amount of inflection to show deep thought, memories, and fear. I have not heard Alexander James perform before, so I was very pleased to hear him.
This is my first experience with Justin Fulkerson, the author. I found his ability to take a short story and build on it so smoothly and quietly, that the listener does not even realize the shortness of the audiobook. I loved the twist! I was so NOT expecting it!
There were no issues with the production or quality of this audiobook.
Net Impact by Donald J. Bingle is a thriller plays on emotions and connections of Dick Thornby. Thornby is a spy and works for the Subsidiary, a secret agency. The book is action-packed, full of unexpected twists and turns, humor and an ending that is surprising.
Bingle gives his listeners a look into the man, he has a family, everyday issues and a life. While Thornby comes off at times as hardened and cunning, Bingle allows the listeners to witness a deeper depth to the spy. We see him struggle with moral issues, his relationships and his fears as a parent. Most spy novels do not allow the main character to have any distractions. That is what I like about this audiobook.
Bruce Pilkenton, the narrator, did a very good job. In the beginning, he sounded like he struggled to find the rhythm to the story but quickly caught on. I thought he did a fine job of narration. His voice was solid and his characters’ voices were noticeable and strong. I would enjoy hearing another read by him.
The production and quality of this audiobook were excellent.
