4 out of 5 stars

Rezensiert am: 15.11.2016

Too fantastic to be credible

Seems to be a constructed story, like in a hollywood film. E.g.one unarmed police man, hunts a team of highly armed former soldiers. Model like woman turns up out of nowhere, ex soldier, who carries big blokes out of battle zones. Or ex special ops hitman, who starts missing when targeting the heroes of the story.

But still a gripping and gruesome story, with kind of an open end.

The speaker Paul Thornley gives a brilliant performance, with various English accents, very nice.

gripping with an uncomfortable open end

A gripping story with and abrupt and uncomfortable open end. Towards the end of the story I became more and more sceptical about the naivety of the acting characters, taking too less precautions, while getting more and more involved in a high level cover up.

Concerning the audio quality:
During the first halve of the audio book I had partly problems understanding the spoken words, because of too many unfiltered hissing noises. Subjectively it got better towards the end.

Wie eine James-Bond-Geschichte ohne Spezialeffekte

Eine kurzweilige, sehr wenig plausible Geschichte, gut zum Autohören, mit interessanten Informationen über China.

zu konstruiert

Der Sprecher ist gut, aber die Geschichte hat Schwächen. Gerade noch so interessant, dass man nicht abdreht.

though story, appetiser for more American history

Hard to follow for a non-native US-American English speaker. But the story becomes more and more gripping, if you can get used to the style. Quite a surprise for a naive European, and it creates some curiosity reading a history book about this time.
Brilliant reading by Craig Wasson.

interesting, but predictable

The story would have had room for some more historic depth. At some point it appears that Stalin did worry about nothing else than about the Amber Room. In the middle of the story I was guessing the culprit.
The strange use of stereotype Russian accents puzzled me. Steven Pacey is brilliant as always and saves this audio book.

IMO, The Red Moth serves well as a nice story while driving the car, not more.
