Here is the short and long of it.
For characters you love to hate, read this book.
For characters you root for from the start, read this book.
For an old fashioned type of horror, read this book.
I listened to this on audible and I have to say I adore the narrator, he made Pendergast and Augusta come alive for me and those who moaned and and and I felt I could strangle them.
For entertainment level alone, this is well worth the read and I will most assuredly be investing in more books written by these authors.
After reading the "in Death" series, all 40 of them I have been searching for the next. I heard good things about this series, so far I'm not impressed. Hopefully the authors hit their stride as the series continues.
Loves Travelling, Music, Mystery/Paranormal/Action/Suspense/Comedy/Female Sleuths novels, Learning new things, & trying to better herself
Relic was a very well performed, action packed story!
I really enjoyed listening to it!
I may just have ti listen to the next book too!
Sound effects are not necessary with a good story. And this is the first in the Pendergast books. The narrator doesn't do as good a job with these characters as the one they have for the later books. Still a good story, one I read many years ago, but enjoyed hearing again.
A must listen! Great story , excellent narration.
Love Lincoln child books!
I have listened to several of his books and I think he and Preston are top notch.
This is one of the best books I've come acrossed!
I loved the atmosphere of the story, the creepy factor, the mystery and the supernatural feel weren't overdone, or underdone for that matter. I found this to be a superb and interesting story to listen to on the late night work shift at 1 o'clock in the morning when youre bored out of youre skull :). Its also intriguing on the 35 minute drive home, the only car on the road and very late, alone...
Quite impressed with the voice actor, made the story much more absorbing and I hope the rest of the series is narrated by him or an equal.
Yes, though it wasnt a particularly 'good' scene of the book. I was surprised by it and it made me want the killer to get wiped out in a rather unpleasant manner.
Pendergast is a fantastic character and I wish I could find more thrillers like these. I hope the authors have many more stories to write about this character as well as the respective authors' other books. I've read all of them, by the way, and wait like a hungry lioness stalking zebra for the next release (okay, sorry for the lame comparison but hey, good books are good books).
