Was a little hard to understand the science - but after the second round, I got it!
The strong women.
Running through the village.
Great twists & turns. Painter walked into several obvious traps which became aggravating. All in all a good read despite the obvious pitfalls. The narrator did a great job with the voices but his mispronunciation of some words was truly unexpected, then again...creek vs crick or tomato vs tom-ato. All in all I enjoyed the book & have purchased Map of Bones.
Have listened to a couple sigma force books and decided to get the first to see how it started. Was ok but needed more science, history, fascinating facts. Less run for your life and good people coming out of nowhere to save the hero???s that didn???t see the obvious trap. And a perfectly good villain ruined in the end with a if she had only had more love scene, really?? Overall it was ok but not the best book I???ve listened to this year.
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
This isn't his best but certainly entertaining.
I enjoyed the listening and I like Mr. Rollins stories.
I'd recommend it to a friend for certain.
Even without expecting much, I was disappointed and stopped listening about 2 hours in. I might have pressed through if even marginally better story or narration, but the combined flaws of both made this a big miss and waste of money.
This guy couldn't write himself out of a box. The language is crap, no character development. The book listens like a really, really bad PG-13 action movie. Every single character is a cliche. The whole book is full of cliches. I'm pissed I wasted a credit on this book.
So far I've had to keep rewinding to orient myself.
Scott Brick would be my narrator of choice. His voice is well suited to this sort of book.
It seems like there is a good story under the poor narration, but I can't get into it despite listening for over 3 hours so far. If this weren't the beginning of a 9 part series I wouldn't be sticking with it, but I see that book 3 ushers in a new narrator so I may press on.
The reader's voice is too high, his accents and individual voices are unconvincing, and he speeds through the story as quickly as he can. I don't know what sort of book this voice would be suited to, but not a thriller like this.
