Great plot and the series keeps getting better and better. Hard to stop listening. I hope audible aquires more ted dekker ...especially the rest of this series
What a ride, fast paced and intense. Could it have been true?? Makes you wonder. Great writing and good narration. All that could be wanted in the genre!! Enjoy!
This is the first book by this author that I have listened to. I was disaapointed that the advancment of the plot and creation of suspense relied on the ineptness of various members of the Sigma Force.
I have been happily listening to Audible offerings for years, and this is the first time I have been moved to write a review. From the laughable character names to the silly stereotype "covert agency" to the ridiculous attempt to mix scientific disciplines the author obviously did not understand at all, this book was awful! I finished it only for the chuckles and groans it provided, and to see if the end would be as bad as I feared - and it was.
I feel ripped off. Black Order was a perfectly good summer read. Some Nazi discovery brought to modern day, a love story, lots of international intrique; then in the last twenty minutes the main characters discover that the antidote to the German invention is prayer and belief in God. These books ought to come wiht a warning: This author has a religious agenda! How cheap!
Do I need to read in order to get more from this book? Will start from #1. Want to know more about Nazi experiments.
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
It was pretty good story line was steady always like Mr. Rollins but this one I could have missed without noticing.
Glad to have heard it through though but I don't think it was worth the cost.
A well-woven story as usual from Rollins. This is the first audio book from him I've heard and second book overall (the first I read). I wish they could have found a better reader. Throughout it seems as if this is his first reading - poor inflections and horrible accents for the quoted parts. It really does take away from a good novel.
I love to read James Rollin's. He is the kind of author that writes to allow the reader to escape into imagination based on science. I have read all of his books with the exception of this one which I listened to.
I have listened to hundreds of books and, because I act, I realize how hard it is to be a decent reader. With this said, I did not care for the readers performance. His reading voice and inflection irritated me to the point that I did not enjoy the book. He only used accents for certain characters and I could not tell the difference between chapters. The reader has an old style which reminded me of 1950s private investigator shows or an older radio announcer. In the first few chapters he started each sentence on the same high note and ended each sentence with the same low note, an octave difference. Also, he extended the end of each word of a sentence, drawing out the sound, which I found to be creepy. Maybe he was just out of practice because toward the end of the book he got better but at that point I had tuned out so much of the book I had lost interest. If the reader reads this I hope he takes it a constructive criticism, I do realize how hard it is to give a good performance with material that length.
