Oddly; part of the reason I chose this book is because of Brick's narration which i have enjoyed in more recent audiobooks. But in this one he is overly melodramatic, and I still don't know if I will finish it. He is over the top with the melodramatic voice, the only person in the media that I can compare him to, (in this book) is that narrator on the NBC Dateline host, Keith Morrison. At least I can avoid buying audiobooks narrated by Morrison! But how to tell if I am buying the "early" Brick or the more recent more listenable "Brick", I'll have to pay more attention ahead of time, somehow. Another good comparison would be someone theatrically reading to several kids, with all knowing it is kind of a joke, "Dad" hamming it up. His narration in this book The Wrecker, is marginal, hope I can finish it and not just waste $5 bucks. At least it wasn't a full credit going to waste.
Listening to the book was a great way to spend a drive between Ohio and South Carolina and still have some left for later times. The story grew quickly and kept working right until the end. The ending was indeed abrupt... But it's good enough.
I love books with significance
Just love Isaac Bell. Clean books so the whole family can listen in even mom!!
Of all Cussler's works on Audible, "The Wrecker" is my all time favorite. i was hesitant to try the Isaac Bell series because of the deviation from the typica Cussler theme novels, but I was glad i did!
I thoroughly enjoyed the progression of the plot and the descriptions of the scenes, the chases, the fights, and so much more. I highly recommend this audiobook.
Scott Brick does an outstanding job of bringing the book to life. His accents for the different characters really let you visualize and identify with the different personality. Clive Cussler add unique specific details that let you see exactly what is the scene in. The detail and authenticity he adds to the story is amazing. He adds nuances which help you fill in all the gaps. AAAA+++
