And enjoyable although formulaic read.
Great for listening during long commutes. Enjoyed the characters as they remind me of my own roots in Louisiana.
The story was interesting and well-written, but the narration was pretty poor -- to the extent that it was distracting.
No. If a narrator is going to attempt to recreate regional accents, he or she should do them properly (or not do them at all). The book is set largely in Louisiana, but most of the character sounded like they were from Appalachia rather than from 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???.
I have listend to many James Rollins books and this reader is horrible! I can't get through the book because she is sooo bad. Can't distinguish between characters and I am sorry but she has a very annoying lisp!
I agree with the other reviewers. The narrator is really bad. The accents are horrible. The plot is not very good. I just couldn't listen to it anymore. Very disappointing--I usually like his books.
The story is just silly, people who are like super-heros even though they come from ordinary lives, they get blown up, bashed into unconsciousness, kill the supervillians, and never,never slow down, eat or sleep.
The narrator for this story is just horrible - and I mean horrible. The Cajun accent is just weird and changes all the time and that is the best thing I can say about it.
I have no idea why I listened to the whole thing, I am sure it knocked my I.Q. down several points, from start to finish it was just painful.
