I like these books but will refrain if it is the same voice. Apparently all none English speaking people are breathless when talking as well as sound the same. The French and Danish accents are very different..... Not here. Also the Danish place names were not recognisable.
This is a new spin on the underground reflections. I find it against my personal grain but the tale has some attraction. The main complaint is the pseudo French accent in the reader which does become monotonous
Overall it will provide thoughts to reflect on, thus is an intriguing book in itself.
Paul Michael is a fantastic narrator. It's unfortunate that he didn't have more to work with. I recently discovered this series and was excited by the history/espionage subject matter. However, two thirds of the way in, the plot has played itself out and the characters are becoming more unbelievable with each conversation. I had high hopes and great expectations… however, I will not be finishing this book. Unfortunate. I am starving for a truly great modern author.
I'm not sure I would be willing to try another. I couldn't even finish this one. I didn't know what it was about when I started it. I purchased soley based on a recommendation, I didn't check to see what it was about. This wasn't my cup of tea.
I prefer stories that are not so anti-religious. The female lead was weak and the name of the male lead "Cotton" from Georgia was weird, I'm sure it was explained later in the book, but I didn't get that far.
Nope, the story was unoriginal enough to put down in the middle and not wonder what happened.
the dialogue between the different characters sometimes when on way too long. and the narrator's accents were difficult to discern between the French the Danish and the other different accents.
This book had promise but could not live up to the storyline. The confusing codes were forged to fit but, unlike The Divinci Code they were ragged and unlikely. Historic facts were ignored, and I think the author had an agenda. All in all I do not recommend this one.
This story is fascinating and I love the narrator. The story drags in some areas and it's confusing the way it jumps around in time but once you realize what's happening, it's easier to keep up. I feel like the character of Cotton is quicker witted than this story gives him credit for being, at least initially. In the end, I love how everything wraps up.
Like the title says this book was good overall but I struggled to stay focused until about halfway through. Great Indiana Jones like ending.
