Lethal Circuit Blog Tour!

I am a final stop on the Lethal Cicuit Audiobook tour today!  Here is the information for the audiobook! 

About Lethal Circuit:
From Best-selling Amazon author Lars Guignard comes the number-one turbo-charged, action spy thriller Lethal Circuit.
A Chinese satellite is on a crash course with Earth. 

It contains enough plutonium to irradiate a large city. 

And that's the good news...

Michael Chase is a twenty-six year old backpacker, a recent college graduate, an amateur. He flew to Hong Kong to find his missing father. Four hours later, he's running for his life. The Chinese Secret Police want him dead. The Conspiracy wants him dead. And the one person who he thinks is on his side, may want him dead too. If Michael is going to live, he'll need to find a hidden piece of Nazi technology lost since World War II. And he'll have to do it before anyone else. Because if he doesn't, a little plutonium is going to be the least of his problems.

Can Michael Chase team up with a beautiful but deadly MI6 agent to locate a lethal piece of Nazi technology that will save the world?

If you can't get enough of the action of Lee Child and Vince Flynn, the intrigue of Robert Ludlum, and the adventure of Clive Cussler and James Rollins, you are going to LOVE Lethal Circuit!
Book can be found at: Audible | iTunes | Amazon | GoodReads

About the Author:
Lars Guignard is a former film and television writer and a graduate of both McGill University and the American Film Institute in Los Angeles. His debut thriller novel, Lethal Circuit, has been
an amazon top 100 Technothriller since its release.
Guignard has wanted to write Indian stories for kids ever since he attended a boarding school in the majestic Himalayas. The time he spent in the “school above the clouds” affected him
profoundly, and once he returned home to North America he was struck by the lack of children’s stories from India available in our culture. Since India is such an incredible country, he decided

My Review:

Listening to an audiobook has a different feel to reading a book so this review will be different than a review for a book.  I generally enjoy audiobooks but there have been some exceptions.  I like when the reader has the range to make the different characters sound just enough different that the book is brought to life.  Likewise, I hate a poorly or creepily read audiobook, such as: the pompous US Harry Potter audiobooks or the Yoda like dragon of the Eragon audiobooks.  I felt that Ben Sullivan did a remarkable job reading this audiobook in such a way that now of the flow or the action feeling was lost.  The listener feels like they are in the middle of the adventure with the characters and you feel that rush of adrenaline or fear when they do.   Really well read.  The book itself was not something that I would normally have read.  I am not an action/adventure buff by any means.  I did find this book thrilling though!  It was interesting enough that I became invested in the story and the characters.  I give this one 3 Fairies for two reasons- one, this is a good book but I did not love it and two, the cover for the ebook needs some major work.  While the book does feature the hunt for a Nazi plane, the swastika on the cover could be seen as offensive and doesn't accurately portray the story in my opinion.  But please don't let my review deter you!  The book would be a phenomenal read for someone who loves action and adventure and the cover is an easy fix.  (The paperback and audiobook do not have the ugly red cover.)

Thanks go to Candace from CCB Promotions for inviting me to take part in this tour!

The ebook cover is the same as the audiobook cover and the paperback. Click the link to amazon and you'll see.

I was going to say, I don't see any other cover, when I click to amazon all I see is this cover.

I'm glad you enjoyed the story okay, even if you didn't love it. I don't like reading this kind of story, but I do enjoy it on audio and in movies.
Thanks for hosting a tour stop!
