I would like to hear this book with a different narrator. He voice has trouble with separating different characters.
Selected the book based on reviews & high ratings for Brad Thor. Had difficulty getting into the story- and then I realized- it was the narrator. Wish they'll re-do and get someone else. Or I'll have to buy the paperback & read myself.
I truly enjoyed listening to this fast paced novel. Narration was good and the story overtop. Fun listen. I sweep through this book in just a few days. Certainly plan on finding another Scott Horvath audible book.
I am a fan of Brad Thor and of his Scott Horvath character. But The telling of this Installment felt overly long.
Suggest that a younger sounding performance would present much better. Main character is 35 yrs old. Performance is much older. Takes away from dynamism of the story.
Too many technical and history details in my opinion. I 'listened' to all of it but tuned a lot of it out. This was my first Brad Thor book. I'll try one more to see if it was just this one.
Say something about yourself!
The story was too slow and could not hold my attention. Too much unnecessary detail.
The issue was not Guidall's performance. It was the material he had to work with.
I could not finish it. Quit after four hours.
The inter twining of ancient history fact and myth into modern day possibility a thrilling on the edge of your seat ride from beginning to end. A complete story! No hanging on for more to come. And for me to be happy , the good guys win and bad guys get their comeuppance.
Can't think of one.
Neither adds nor subtracts.
Yes and plan to listen again in future. I'm sure I will enjoy just as much maybe more on the second go round
If you like mystery intrigue and ancient mythology you should love this book
I enjoyed the plot and twists of the story. However, there was too much intense action for me. It was over the top for someone to handle all of that.
The story was great. A new threat, (to me at least,) to kill millions of people is at the heart of the story. The are plenty of twists and turns to keep one's interest and a rich background in world history to boot. The climax came as a surprise as well. The only reason I gave it four stars was that the slow start was made slower by the narrator. While I enjoyed a lot of his narration, it was definitely better when he was relating conversations between people than just reading what was going on. His voice could be monotonous and I found my interest waning during those blocks of text. I had to go back and listen to several pieces of the book to catch the action during those parts due to my mind wandering. All in all, I would listen to more of the books in this series, even with the same narrator.
