Yes...Engaging characters and story line
Special Agent Aloysius Pendergast
When I read the author summary about a beast running rampant and murdering people in a NYC museum I thought well that's different! I glad I took a chance.This Sci-Fri mystery was amazing. I missed hours of sleep because I couldn't stop listening to the story. I found myself holding my breath in anticipation on what's going to happen next. This book is definitely worth a credit.
Bibliophile, radiographer,wife, mother, and all around book addict.
Good narration and story. Kept me interested and entertained. The oddness and intrigue of Pendergast is a great mix with the plot and adds a good contrast to the other characters. I'm always weary when picking up a new series and I was delightfully surprised with this one.
I enjoyed this sci-fi/techno/thriller a lot. The narrator gave an mediocre performance. His pacing was okay, but his character voices were over the top caricatures. But the book itself was very exciting and had me on the edge of the bed listening.
This is the first in a series of books by these authors...pretty good actually, pretty violent as well. I enjoyed it, however I could only listen to it in the daytime. No, no, not at night, too creepy.
I enjoyed the buildup of this book. Having read several other Pendergast novels, this one def measures up. Its a good origin story.
The best part for me would be the beginning interaction of the main characters and see how it all began.
I haven't listened to any other David Colacci performances but this was well read and pleasurable.
I def wanted to listen in one sitting, I ended up listening to this solely while to and from work and at work. I had to finish it!
Storyline was boring. Too much unnecessary details.
The middle of the book. The beginning was good and the end got exciting, but everything in between was a drag.
The museum opening night.
Some of the officers. Too many different names.
I have listened to quite a few books now, and I almost chose to turn this one off. That has never happened before.
I have not read the print version. I listen to books during my commute.
Very interesting plot.
Well read and easy to hear even in traffic.
The relationship building between the primary characters was well done.
Ok sorry to jump on the band wagon, but really poor performance. For me the most irritating part was the conversations between a really soft spoken person (Margo?) and a loud person (smith back) I was constantly turning the volume up and then down. The story had some holes that were never explained adequately.
This is the book that will make you want to continue reading the Pendergast series, although he only introduced in this book.
The ideas in each book - this one especially is fresh and riveting.
The book is narrated well and sounds like its being spun by an authentic story teller, not just read to you.
Running through the tunnels and sewers...I couldn't turn the story off. Glad that more of this continued into book 2!
Good story 4 star for sure
the truth in how the dollar rules the world
the catacombs and planning to over come the beast
pretty good story. Sure makes you want to go to New York!
