A decent story, as one would expect from Brown. One of the worst narrators I have ever listened to. The obnoxious mouth noises almost made me give up.
At end of every sentence or chapter you can hear the narrator wet mouth kinda like the sound when u mix pasta in a bowl and u here the wet sound. Drove me nuts. Have all other Dan brown books and really wanted to hear this book but just could not go thru with it after less than an hour. Very sad
I really enjoyed this book. There were times when I was finding excuses to go on extended drives in the car so that I could finish a chapter.
Like action, adventures, war stories, militay happenings, historical readings-fiction, & mysteries. Unabridged only! Reader IMPORT!
Very suspenseful! Particularly in the last part of the STORY!!
I would have to say the long details, at times, was a bit TO MUCH!
WELL WORTH THE LISTENING!!!!
Richard Poe is an excellent reader but he has some unfortunate mouth noises that sound like crackling lolly paper. It is really distracting and I honestly couldn't bear the expectation of hearing it one more time or imagining what could possibly be making the sound.
I have to agree with all the other reviewers... The sound of Poe's lips and tongue and saliva are distracting and disgusting. Still a good listen, but come on people, learn how to produce cleaner audio.
The book was decent and Richard Poe really paints a picture. Unfortunately it's painted with saliva. I think I would have liked the book more if the "mouth sounds" were not so prevalent. I assume they have used some new technology that turns Bubble Yum into a microphone capable of capturing every nearly imperceptible sound the human mandible makes.
I don't think this is Richard Poe's fault however or Dan Brown's. They did a great job and aside from the live action experience of being a piece of taffy working it's way though the first part of digestion. This was a great book.
I only hope the old gypsy man that cursed the recording with the word "Wetter" when it ran over his daughter has found solace in the fact that we all suffered the sopping sounds of Deception Point. I'm eager to listen to other recordings from inside a dogs mouth.
