The author's intro ...well I skipped it, it was long and my eyes were glazing over. But the narrator for the actual book is good
The book was ok, not real exciting. The author spent too much time explaining in painful .details the scientific information. When he got into the story it was good but always interrupted with more painful detail.
If you are a scientist you might like this. If you are looking for a good suspense novel, keep looking, this is not it.
As a Crichton fan I was disappointed with this book. The protagonist seemed incompetent much of the time. The enemies seemed hyper-capable at times and then completely incompetent at other times. How some people acted and changed actions later in the book defied explanation. The eventual solution to the enemies and their reactions to it didn't seem well thought out or possible. The book had some interesting ideas, hence the three stars, but I was just more frustrated than entertained.
I'll give one small example that I don't think will spoil anything. The airlock to the facility apparently has individual sensors to detect how many feet are standing in it and will automatically operate when and only when there are two feet touching the floor. Why would anyone design an airlock to operate this way? What if someone had crutches? What if they had only one leg? What if they had a suitcase? What if, as in the book, there was a time when it was required for two people to go through at once? It felt like the limitation was there for an artificial moment of tension, which is precisely how much of the rest of the book felt also.
Yes the audio versions was very good I commute a great deal so the audio version save me time and made the commute seem shorter.
listening to Next this Narrator was ok. i'm new to listening to audio books this is my 2nd book i've listen to, but he uses the same voices from the previous story i've heard from the male lead to the kids. maybe i'm being to hard on performance but its hard to know whose voice is whose.
different voice inflections for main characters.
Jacks son, DAAAAAAAAAAAAD..... NOOO FAAAAAAIIIIR
what i wish i could hear Jacks son: No fair Nicole got more phage than i did.
Yes I think I would.
it starts out slowly but in the end I was quite satisfied with the story. I thought the narrator was good regardless of what other reviewers thought.
Thrillers zombies and action make my day! Fast moving stories and characters worth reading. New twists to a great genre will always get me
Never a dull moment from the beginning to the end. Fast paced and entertaining. Not disappointed.
Not a bad story but the level of detail that the author goes into is a little over the top. There is one part in the book where your held captive to a 25 min boring explanation of something we don't really need to know.
Pretty much all of it.
Write a story that he is truly able to do like his other great novels he has written.
George made a poor story worth listening to the end. At least he added excitement in his telling of the very ordinary story.
Yes only if the movie script could repair the lack luster story.
No Jurassic Park Excitement Here In This Book!
Great suspense, good narration...a little out-there at times, but I certainly kept finding reasons to listen often! Didn't love the ending, seemed a bit rushed, but otherwise a good listen.
This is a great book.
I'm listening with my Droid-X using the Android app for audible.
I'm not sure where the problem is, but several times in the first hour, the audio was garbled.
