I love the Pendergast character but I struggled with this book. It just didn't hold my attention. I found it boring at times and I skipped forward several times. I do not like the reader in this story. Enjoy Scott Brick much better.
The new narrorator has a very limited range. He does well with the voices of old Tibetan monks... but he makes everyone sound like an old Tibetan monk. I wish the old narrorator had performed this.
Over the years, I have read all of the Pendergast books, when I recently downloaded the latest, The Obsidian Chamber, which is about Diogenes returning, I was sooo excited I decided to go back and re-read the entire Diogenes series. The Book of the Dead and Dance of Death did not disappoint, I felt like I was reading them for the first time! However, Wheel of Darkness was a serious let down. Much more Si-Fi than previous books, down right corny... Worse of all, there was very little mention of Diogenes. I guess I must have used it as background noise the first time, and had to force myself to pay attention this time. They dropped the ball on this one.
Rene Aubogonis is the only thing good about this book. He IS Pendergast.
I never thought I would return a Preston-Child book, but this one goes back.
this book is one of the best Pendergast stories yet.... But the narrator, especially compared to the previous narrator in the previous Pendergast books, is horrible.... He did not even give him a Southern accent
Like Scott Brick's narrating better. He does a good accent for Pendergast, where this one did not.
Story was pretty far-fetched, although several in the series have been, but just had a hard time getting into it and relating to this one. Not my favorite
Not as good as the previous three. Interesting enough though.
I don't care for the narrator. It's hard to follow Scott Brick.
I was annoyed by how the book addressed the female captain. Very competent but they gave her a crappy role.
