What a great story, started out slow but turned into a wonderful plot with very good characters. Scott brick is an excellent narrater, he brings the story to life.
I consider myself a fan of Cussler, but this book made me check the cover a couple of times.
It's predictable, characters are 1 dimensional and just "figure out" what the villain will do next. Events occur as if timed to suit characters. Dialogue and the romance had to be skipped I places - it's that bad!
Brick does a decent job narrating this train wreck (pun intended), but it's not his best stuff.
In short, avoid and read a later book. Cussler gets better, fortunately.
Totally addicted to Audible.
What I love about the "First in a Series" sale is just what Audible hopes. I find some great books at a good price and sometimes I get more of the series. This was a good find and I definitely will be getting more of these. Enjoy!
How did Scott brick go from my favorite narrator to my least favorite? Maybe in this book he was bored with the story but his voice was so slow and "sing-song" I almost had to stop listening.
Not knowing what to expect, I was definetly impressed with the pace, suspense and intensity of this book. Definitely an interesting read considering the time frame it was based on in 1906. I highly recommend it.
I have never read a Clive Cussler book that I did not really enjoy. I truly love the way he creates the background as it begins, and keeps me in suspense until the very end. I highly recommend this book
