    Weird concept where each of about a dozen writers write 1 chapter of the book At the half way point and there are WAY too many story lines Basically 6 different 1st chapters Hope the next authors are amazing at bringing them together Otherwise this will be a FAILWell got to the end and it was OK IT was Jeffery Deaver idea and therefore he wrote the first and last chapters Well the other writers got so deep into sub plots that Jeff

    Finally had an opportunity to settle down and listen to THE CHOPIN MANUSCRIPT without interruption The concept of having fifteen different writers collaborate on the creation of a single book is certainly an unconventional and uniue undertaking I personally would judge the results as a ualified success There are so many twists and turns in the story some relevant and some uestionable and so many different characters and story line

The BookThe premise for this book created a two level thriller First award winning writer Jeffrey Deaver wrote the first chapter of an international thriller challenged 14 colleagues to continue the story a chapter at a time and assumed the ultimate challenge himself of tying up all the loose ends in the final chapters The complicated plot details in the product description winds around the globe with munificent mayhem and bountiful betrayals before settling in the Balti Washington area Second a major part of the thrill was to watch each author devise plot complications for later authors to unravel and to see how the later authors handled the material presented to them There are advantages and disadvantages to this collaborative approach Not knowing how the later parts of the story will develop neither the author of a chapter nor the listenerreader knows which new concept will become a main linchpin of the story and which will not be followed up at all A listenerreader faces this type of challenge even in normal thrillers but in a normal story conventions of good writing keep complete red herrings down to a reasonable number It can be fun and frustrating at the same time In The Chopin Manuscript lead author Jeffrey Deaver did a marvelous job of tying up loose ends masterfully given the many strange and sometimes unlikely turns of the plot There were several plot elements that were outstanding in my mind as lacking in credibility until Deaver explained them in the denouementAs international thrillers go the plot was probably not significantly complicated or unlikely than the norm and some of the characters were engaging such as the nineteen year old Polish violinist who is swept from being a street musician in Rome to being abducted internationally as part of an apparent terrorist plot If as I did you hoped this book would introduce you to some new authors whose work you might like to try later you will probably not have that goal satisfied For the most part the chapters were not really long enough to give you a good sense of the author s style with a few exceptions such as the author whose lovingly portrayed scene of mayhem in the Dulles airport clearly told me what kind of writer HE is or Lisa Scottoline s chapter which at the other extreme focused on the personal reaction of a young woman who sees all her plans for her future life being destroyed through no involvement of her ownFor the most part although there were differences in style the writing was compatible enough to flow fairly well but there were some jarring dissonances most notably to me two authors tendency to have all the characters use profanity profusely Some people talk that way but if they do it is consistent and to have a character say f multiple times in one chapter and not at all for a number of chapters after is disruptiveThe Audio ProductionThe reader did a good job with expression and with the many accents of the international cast of characters He mispronounced a few words and in this case I do not believe they were britishisms Which brings up another issue WHY was the narrator British All of the authors with whom I was familiar are American as was the protagonist There were no British characters A British voice is neither as neutral or as easy to comprehend as an American one for American listeners and in this case I think it was not the best choice Good reader but not for this workMy reaction to the technical aspects of the audio was mixed There were unobtrusive but effective musical interludes to show the transition from one scene to another in place of the space between paragraphs that normally fill that role in print On the other hand there were several places where the break between CDs could have been much better chosen eg so that a chapter or a scene would begin at the beginning of a CD The endings seemed very arbitrary although there clearly was a lot of leeway the last CD was only 44 minutes long whereas some of the others were than 70 minutes long There was plenty of room to move things aroundFinally since this was a collaborative effort it is natural for the listener to want to know which author did which sections At a list price of 2995 I would expect at minimum a package insert or listing on the package of a Table of Contents with the authors listed next to their chaptersDespite its flaws this audio book is entertaining and engrossing enough to make a long car trip seem much shorter and that makes it worth your consideration

LENGTH 7 hrs and 34 mins15 thriller masters 1 masterful thrillerFormer war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin But he is unaware that locked within its handwritten notes lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans As he races from Poland to America to uncover the mystery of the manuscript Middleton will be accused of murder pursued by federal agents and targeted by assassins. A book written by 15 different authors each contributing a chapterAn interesting concept but did it workThe book for me was like a collection of short stories all held together by a common thread I found all the different writing styles a bit confusing Each author was given free rein to take their chapter anywhere they wanted The last two chapters were written by Jeffery Deaver and it was his job to bring the whole thing together and he did it well I have to sayFor me there was just too much going on Too many Red Herrings and too many twists and turnsI can t say that I didn t enjoy it but it is not a book that I will want to revisit at a later dateA good read but alas it fell short of the mark for me
