I used to listen to the Dirk Pitt novels by Clive Cussler, which were fun. But this book is embarrassing. I don't even know why I finished it. The only interesting part was some of the history from 1906 and discussion of some of the "technology" of the age...otherwise, its a waste of time.
I needed this after coming off a slow boring book. I listened to this as often as I could which is how I rate books. If I don't want to stop and turn it on as soon as I can, it's a fiver.
I am about 3/4 of the way through the book and have liked the story so far. Before I purchased it however, I was confused about the negative reviews on Mr. Brick's narration. I have always liked his narration on previous books; even LOVED it on occasion. I thought the negative reviewers were just wrong. Unfortunately, they are correct and I was wrong. What is he thinking? It's like he chose his inflection before reading the sentence and will not alter to fit the meaning of the sentence. It is so irritating, I thought about stopping and returning the book. I haven't because the story is quite good. I can't imagine why Mr. Cussler continues to use him. IRRITATING!!
Good early book. sets up Bell and Morgan's romance well. Good to see the later years of Bell's life and the conclusion to the Chase. Love Scott Brick's work.
Excellent book, hardly a minute that does not entertain. Both Scott and Cussler did an excellent job of narrating and story writing.
Yes. With the proviso that it is light fare - the hero is almost a super hero (although no super powers), the villain is a super villain. Wonderful descriptions the life, times, and places of the American West of the early 1900s.
The San Francisco earthquake scenes.
He puts drama into the story
The final confrontation on the ferry
Wow what a griping story and so well read too. Clive Cussler did his homework the blend of story and 1906 history is great. I will listen to some more of his books.
