Vatican Assassin and its two sequels are among my favorite audiobooks available on podiobooks. The story keeps your attention and the main character is extremely witty and entertaining I kept laughing out loud throughout the whole story. BC is something else. Great job, Mr. Luoma!
This book is amazing, as are the two sequels. Not only is the story worth listening to, the performance of the author is excellent. He gives different inflections and accents to his different characters, does so well, and reads clearly. He also gets right to the story right off the bat of each episode, not wasting any time with pomp and circumstance. I'd definitely recommend it, and, to the author, BRAVO!
This was great. It kept my attention. The author didn't waste time describing pointless things and made the story flow.
