I have read a lot of audiobooks so this book would be in my top 10.
Other Preston Child books. The endings are always a surprise and the stories or parts of them will continue in other books. You will meet these characters again and perhaps they aren't the people you thought they were!
Yes. His performances are outstanding. I love his voice and intonation. The voice literally creates the most detailed story pictures in the readers mind. Brilliant!
Mysteries of science.
Talented writers, amazing stories.
I could not put this suspenseful novel down!
I’m a computer nerd, and understand the dated items of the 1994 era, but it did not detract at all to the story. Enjoy a bit of history, fact, science fiction and mystery?… blend it all together and you get one heck of a creepy soup!
The characters were well developed and I knew who to like and dislike immediately. I did find the heroine, Margo – as a woman - .. rather 1-dementional though.. but it didn’t detract from the story. Some of the sub-plots were obvious.. but that sort of added to the suspense. “Don’t open that door, you idiot!!”
I liked the narrator. He brought the characters to life and I never had to guess who was speaking. I’m from the south originally and was NOT offended by any of the southern accents or mannerisms, as other reviewers have mentioned. I found them rather true to form.
Yes, I’ll recommend this. It is well worth the credit.
I gave this a listen after listening to Riptide, which I enjoyed. After hearing that their earlier books were often considered better I settled on Relic hoping to find another series to follow. It was fun enough but Riptide was more my style, this wasn't a bad book but began to drag on in the end.
I only made it 2/3rds of the way through the book before putting it down. I really enjoyed the story and the descriptive fashion of the objects and environments. But the two-dimensional characters and the dialogue drove me far enough away that I couldn't enjoy it anymore. I really wanted to like this series as it has been hard for me to find a good contemporary sci-fi book about monster-hunters and/or paranormal investigators, which is slightly infuriating as Howard Phillips Lovecraft, August Derleth, and F. Paul Wilson have all made it one of my favorite genres.
yes. it is a good listen
the mystery of what the creature may be
a good listen
I was never happy with the movie version of this book. I knew there was much more than what I saw on screen. The book did a great job of putting the pieces together, developing the characters, and keeping the reader interested up to the very end. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.
And as always, David Colacci delivered and excellent narration of the story.
I've always been a fan of the quasi-scientific thriller, I've read all of James Rollins' novels, and I find Relic to be very much in that same vein. It's well written with fun, if somewhat cliche and shallow, characters and a story that sucks you right in. The monster is fun, even if it does begin to strain my disbelief when no one but the main characters take it's threat seriously over and over again. I would definitely recommend it, and I also enjoyed it's sequel Reliquary, though I'd warn anyone going from the first to the second that there is a drastic tone change.
I loved the hunger game books but I would definitely put this book up there with it. I am definitely going to read book 2, the Reliquary.
Pendergast of course! Buy this audible and you will understand why!
He is by far my favorite reader to date! He does a great job with different voices.
There are many great moments so I can't really choose just one.
Life is great!
I thought this book just drug on too long. I enjoy the longer novels, but this was too slow. I finally gave up near the end when I realized there were still over 90 minutes left and I still didn't care how it ended.
I wouldn't recommend this one. As previously stated it was slow.
I enjoyed David Colacci for the first time and would purchase a book he performed again. I like his strong, smooth voice and his various voices for different characters added some goodness to this book.
