i preferred the audio version because i didn't have to put it down. the story was so intriguing i found myself listening almost non-stop to the end!
the suspense of finding the library and the characters was amazing. Steve Berry did i great job giving enough detail to keep you hooked, but not enough to
i personally love to listen to Scott Brick. he reads well, the speed and inflection helps the story along. i am glad he does the remainder of the series.
a few points made me laugh. on the whole the story made me think a lot about conspiracy theories and the main-stream histories we are all taught. Steve Berry did a wonderful job intertwining history and current events.
I have listened to five of Steve Berry's books, unfortunately I didn't find this one up to the level of the others. Scott has a sound reading performance, but the material was not as good as lets say the Paris Vendetta or my favorite the Charlemagne Pursuit. If this is your first book by Steve, I'd start with another.
This is such a good story, and SO well written, it is easy to get lost in it. I was REALLLY disappointed in the end though. I wish Steve Berry would not have written what I see as a complete "cop out". too bad.
Say something about yourself!
These are my types of novels and I highly enjoyed it but I think it kind of dragged out towards the end but because the history and context of the book I will still give it 4 stars and not 3.
This is the first book that I have listened to by this author. It will certainly be the last. I can’t believe that i actually paid for it. Totally implausible plot and wooden characters . the author obviously thinks, encouraged by most of the reviews above, that a murder a page is necessary to keep things moving. This writing is the height of violent obscenity, and even Scott Brick shouting every line cannot make it believable. No wonder the USA has so many mass shootings.
Good subject matter, but tedious and somewhat flimsy. Great narration by Scott Brick. Berry's later books that weave history with fiction are better.
I love books!
I enjoy Steve Berry's books, they aren't the greatest books ever written but they are entertaining. What I enjoy most is the historical perspective he brings to his books, he takes a look at times and situations you might not think about otherwise. I'm sure I'll listen to some more.
This is an interesting story. Unfortunately the narrator's style ruined it for me. He seemed to be one of those announcer-voiced guys who uses the same tone and inflection for most words, regardless of meaning (bad acting). I found it distracting and difficult to follow the story. It made me wonder if he was reading the book for the first time and was missing the point.
Denise....love to listen.....favorites are alternative history and long complicated plots!
I have listened to all Steve Berry's books that are available. I found this one boring. I love Scott Brick as a narrator but even he could not save this book. I did not like it.
