such singsong narration. why? similar to kindergarten teacher.
accents however were spot on.
if you enjoyed Dan Brown's Robert Langdon series, I bet you'll dig this series.
I'll look for something with actual character development.
The narrator's voice had a sing-song, bedtime story quality, with not enough differentiation between male and female characters. Perhaps I've been spoiled by the likes of Kate Reading and Barbara Rosenblatt.
The entire book was a string of action events structured around an unbelievably tangled plot and implausible riddles that the main characters and their team worked to solve. It was a book centred around plot, not characters. The characters didn't grow in any discernible way; they simply made wise-crack remarks at each other and the villains. Two thirds of the way through, I just wanted the whole thing to be over. Disappointing, given the hype around Clive Cussler novels.
This is the first Clive Cussler book I've read. The narrator was great, but the characters were one dimensional and the plot was ridiculous. Imagine a poor man's Davinci Code directed by Michael Bay.
I enjoyed the story and the Fargo's and their team kept things exciting with their treasure hunting, clue solving abilities. Scott Brick did a great job on this book and I look forward to listening to the next one.
This is such a ridiculous book! Improbable happenings, coincidences that are unbelievable,
actions by the main characters that are beyond foolhardy, knowledge attributed to the main characters that is too unlikely, 2 people shooting it out with pistols against 25 or so well armed professionals and winning... I could go on and on! This is the last Clive Cussler I will gamble on. Just too stupid!
