Audiobook Review: Lethal Circuit by Lars Guignard

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!

Lethal Circuit is fast-paced thrill that I absolutely adored. I'm an old-fashioned kind of girl though, so while I appreciated the convenience an audio book brings - like listening on the treadmill, while I was prepping dinner, and of course while I was baking - I still don't think it takes the place of reading a proper book, printed on paper, with that new-ink smell. I actually found the narration distracting and don't think I got as much out of the book as I could have if I had read it myself.

Lethal Circuit has a well-written, well-imagined plot, and the writing is descriptive, making the reader (or listener in this case) feel like a part of the story. I'm not sure how I feel about the ending, but the next book in the series might help clear things up for me.

3 cupcakes out of 5 because of the narration problems

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 to write a series of action adventure books for young adults about India to introduce young readers to this magical, mystical land.

  1. That's funny, for this book I felt I enjoyed it more on audio then I would if I had tried to read it. I think it was just the story itself because I'm not big on spy thrillers for reading, but apparently I like them a lot on audio (and for movies). I know that not everyone loved the narration for this but I liked it pretty well, I felt it fit. Thanks for giving this a try and I'm glad you mostly enjoyed it!

    1. That is funny. I think it's more of a personal preference thing. I hate ebooks, too, so it might be an anti-tech thing with me.

  2. Thank you for listening and for the review! Cheers, Lars
