This is one of the many books that my hubby and I listen to while driving from Wyoming to Utah! We have enjoyed the 3-4 books that we have read by Mr Rollins.
Rollins has a very scientific mind and some of his description can be a bit insightful and maybe more than I really need but for someone (like my hubby) who has that type of scientific mind, it is GREAT!
We have enjoyed the creative spin that Rollins puts on his books and when reading them the time passes quickly!
There is probably a good story in there somewhere, but the reader is awful. Her male voices all sound the same, like somebody's mother reading them a story about Billy Goats Gruff. Gave up after two hours. It surprises me that a writer this good doesn't pay enough attention to who narrates his books.
Her male speaking voice is so horrible you'll laugh. She sounds like a robotic parrot, which one of the characters is a talking parrot, so I guess in that case she's spot on! Her spoken male voices were so distracting I found it very difficult to finish the novel.
And enjoyable although formulaic read.
Great for listening during long commutes. Enjoyed the characters as they remind me of my own roots in Louisiana.
YES I WILL. FOUND IT TO BE THOUGHT PROVOKING.
THE ATTACK OF THE TIGER.
ALL MAJOR CHARACTORS WERE FILLED OUT AND SEEMED TO BE INPORTANT TO THE STORY.
VERY GOOD LISTENING. READ VERY WELL
You can't beat Rollin's for a great roller coaster of a story. He takes you on a journey of man's experimental obsession with animals, the devastating effects, between the animals and mankind. The lesson's learnt. He is a great story teller will have you on the edge of your seat. The narration is OK.
I love to book, but the narrator was just ok. I didn't really like her Cajun accents - the sounded more Irish to me... I think a male narrator could have handled it more adeptly.
Everybody???s taste is different nevertheless I was disappointed in this book. The main characters I found to be dull and typecast : ???Jack Menard??? a superman-with-a-disturbed-past type and ???Lorna Polk??? irritating and flat. Descriptions of weapons and military equipment where often inaccurate, their terminal effects like something out of a B grade movie. The plot was also a stretch of the imagination??? Unfortunately, I also must agree with other reviewers regarding the narration, the attempt at Cajun accents didn???t meet with much success, I would have to rate the narrator as ???painful at times???.
