What are some user reviews about the book 'The Reluctant Assassin'?

Here are some user reviews about the book: - 'A very enjoyable read. A well-written and very well-performed audiobook. Exciting story line kept us interested.' - 'Very good book. The story was very good, with a credible connection to historical events. The main character was good. The story was very well narrated by Drew Bott. I enjoyed listening to it.' - 'Highly recommend! Listened to the entire book while driving over the weekend. Really enjoyed the story as well as the narration. I would highly recommend this book to anyone.' - 'Finished with a bang. Overall, good story. Little slow at first but author is setting the stage. The main character could have had an accent-unsure if author wanted him without accent for reading (?). Does have some unexpected twists and turns. Looking forward to the next book.' - 'Caught my attention. This book was great. Really enjoyed everything about this book. Recommend this book to everyone.' - 'A daydream of an American Dad. Great narrator! A little bit of interesting accents at times but he did a good job of keeping characters distinct and following dialogue. I'd love to see him read a book set in Germany, I think he'd easily be a 5-star narrator for that setting. The story itself is pretty rough. It feels like it was written by the author for the author and not for a larger audience. If you're a working Dad over 50 you'll probably love this book because that's the group I imagine the author is in. Protective father elements and the book had pieces of good writing in it, however, the story felt disjointed and jumpy. I have to admit there were a few times that the book surprised me, but for the most part, it was easily predictable with many standard cliches. I would also have liked to dig in more to the historical side of things, it felt like the book wanted to teach you about history but then reminded you that it was just set in the near past and not meant to dig into real historical details. The author's opinions come through as you're reading as the writing is very transparent. It often feels like I'm being told the story instead of shown or put into the story.' - 'I couldn’t put it down! I loved this book! I started reading yesterday and am already finished wishing there was more! The story was interesting and mixed with history made it even better. I can’t wait for the next book by Lee Jackson.'
