Audio junkie, caffiene addict, anglophile & a bit of a wino.
Less predictibility...more complex story line....
Written for readers older than 10 years of age.
Intense eye rolling and thoughts of "I'm listening to this why exactly?"
Save your credi!
Lots of blood but not three-dimensional. Gave it two hours but then gave up
I would never presume that any author should change their writing because of my taste.
Hate this part. Just never got pull in, couldn't distinguish many of the characters, but not sure how much was the material.
Sorry - just fell flat for me.
Tell us about yourself! I like to be transported by a good book.
David Colacci did a fantastic job made the book come alive. When the story got boring he made it come back to life
My hearing will surely go out early in life due to all the audiobooks I listen to!
I have read/listened to many Preston novels and Child novels. Individually, each author is exquisite; If you have read any of them you know what I mean. Mbwun (M-bwoon) has been released and is causing chaos and death in the American Museum of National History and its up to Pendergast along with a spectacular team to figure out how to stop him. A thrill ride from the beginning that is sure to keep your attention throughout with a twist that will keep your head spinning long after the novel is finished.
Be sure to check out the film adaptation of the movie. It was released in 1997 and here are many differences between the book and movie but its still great to see the similarities.
A little predictable in parts but plenty of suspense with a litlte comic relief thrown in. I love the ending and look forward to the next book in the series.
A great read with great characters and an evil protagonist. Good job, again! Loved the suspense and thrill.
The story is a good solid science (biology) fiction lark, with just enough detail to seem plausible-ish, and enough suspense and sympathetic characters to fill in the gap. One drawback ... Since this is set in New York, I suppose the narrator really couldn't avoid using various New York accents to portray, and enliven, certain characters. But he didn't have to make them the most over-the-top caricatured accents for the "hard boiled" New York detectives. A minor complaint. This book is a good start to a solidly enjoyable series.
not into answering all the set questions, really enjoyed this book and would recommend to anyone who enjoys a good entertaining story, love the pendergast series by these writers
Yes I would listen to it again, it is a good story and keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Pendergast is my favorite character, I have read all the other Pendergast novels and thoroughly enjoy them.
He did an ok job. I am used to Rene Auberjonois being the narrator for Pendergast novels however David Colacci did a good job.
Yes it was very good.
There is a LOT of swearing in this book, much more than other Child and Preston novels. Most of it centered around Lt. Dagosta.
