あらすじ・解説

Stuart Woods is in top form…and so is his perennially popular hero, Stone Barrington! When a hedge fund billionaire hires Stone Barrington to talk some sense into his wayward son, it seems like an easy enough job; no one knows the hidden sins and temptations of the ultra-wealthy better than Stone. But as Stone and his erstwhile protégé, Herbie Fisher, probe deeper into the case - and an old one comes back to haunt him - he realizes that even he may have underestimated just how far some people will go to cover up their crimes…and plan new ones.

Yawn

I always look forward to new Stuart Woods books, particularly Stone Barrington books but lately they have not been as good. This story is not interesting. There are mutiple subplots that do not get woven together. The story is very predictable. Everything works perfectly for the main characters and gets done on a time scale that is impossible. There is no depth of feeling shown by any character and overall it is not very interesting to listen to. Sonte Barrington was almost a side character in the story and had little to add or perform. It's sad when one of your favorite authors and characters begins to wander off track.

Predictable, no plot

What disappointed you about Unnatural Acts?

I agree with the other reviewers. I have read almost every Stuart Woods book, and enjoy the totally unrealistic but delightful stories. There was no plot to this story and Herbie went from being an idiot to the next Warren Buffett. This was a sloppy effort written to make a dollar.

Save your money

Too predictable even for Woods. He not only resurrected Herbie but elevated him to unbelievable heights.....

Disappointed

Better editing might have helped.

Write more cohesively, and listen to the editor.

What about Tony Roberts’s performance did you like?

I like his "Dino" !!

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Extreme disappointment. I've read or listened to nearly all of the Stuart Woods books. The more recent ones have become more and more disconnected, and have suffered increasinly from bad editing.

Not many

No

Did Tony Roberts do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

Yes

Any additional comments?

First Stuart Woods novel that seemed like he wasn't into the story. More like he just cranked it out.

Sweet Friends turn into Nasty Old Men.

none

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

No

When an author runs out of Ideas, leave the stage.

Woods Disappoints!

Predictable, rushed, naïve … as if written by a child.
Great narration though, as always.
