Hmmm, what to say about this book? It was interesting enough. Not enough to hook me completely, though. I had a hard time to finish it.
If I hadn't already read the Diogenes Trilogy and the subsequent few books I may have been tempted to give up on this series. But I know the books get better so I'll chalk this up as an important book as far as character development goes but it's not one I'd reread.
The narrator was horrible. I've listened to other books that Dick Hill has read and he was good. In those books he wasn't required to show much emotion or voice changes. He ruined this book. All the voices were wrong. I love how Scott Brick (he's just so good) and Rene Auberjonois read the later books. The production was off, too. The "special effects" were annoying.
20 yrs later & this book is still a top-notch thriller. Narrator did a pretty great job with the subtle dramatics & effects, although it's always such a cliche when male readers feel the need to voice every female character as soft, breathless, & timid.
loved it the authors were really awesome the story line was easy to follow. fun
I originally started this series when I was in Jr high . After watching Relic on Netflix I decided to find the series that I once so enjoyed. This second book brings back characters that are familiar and enjoyable. The flow of the story at times was slow but that may have been since I knew the ending before starting. I easily though slid into my own imaginings of this book while listening Dick Hill narrate. The descriptions gave me enough details to begin the image and allowed my imagination to complete it. Do you know what lies under the city streets? You may be surprised! If you have not read the first book please read Relic.
Yes. It added good layers to characters I'm sure will continue to be featured in the series.
Underground aspect was great. Dr. Frock was totally predictable and telegraphed.
The switching from character to character was annoying in that if you aren't great at that , read it straight.
So much of the Mbwun stuff was repeated over and over and over.
