Tell us about yourself!
...distracted by Scott Brick's highly mannered intonation? No matter who the character is, or what kind of regional accent is appropriate, I'm always yanked right out of the story by Mr. Brick's strange vocal affectations. This story is wonderful, but I won't download another book with Scott Brick as the narrator - it's just too frustrating. I give this 4 stars for the story, and no stars for how annoyed I was while listening.
Say something about yourself!
First I must admit my bias. I have a degree in one of the Life Science and this book takes great liberties with Chemistry and Physics. (Liberal Arts Majors probably will not notice. Haha) The book could have been better researched. Also, there is such a similarity with "Riptide" I suspect both of these books used the same research material. Scott Brick was great as usual. If you liked "Riptide" you will like "The Ice Limit" as they are almost the same book.
The story might have been better but the narrator got in the way
I unfortunately have now listened to two of this narrators books. Big mistake. The old "fool me once" jibe comes to mind but I apparently did not get the narrators name in my mind when I downloaded the book. There is no hope for this narrator ~ it is his natural way and it sucks!
This is one of my favorite Preston and Child reads. Fast, interesting characters, lots of twists, and a fun ending. Narrated by the ever reliable Scott Brick.
I'm a big Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child fan, as well as a fan of Scott Bricker, but I found the plot line totally unbelievable - and unlike some other unbelievable plot lines of this Duo, I couldn't suspend my disbelief. I almost abandoned the story numerous times.
I love to learn... a blessing and a curse as they say... If I loved making money as much as I love to learn, I would be able to buy more books right now! I love Audible.... (and a long term fan of Amazon)... actually joined in 1999 when hardly no one was shopping on the internet. I have always enjoyed someone telling me a good story.
I picked up this book becasue I had just finished The Passage (narrated by Scott Brick) and I missed his voice! Of all things... Now I say "Scott tell me a story"...
However, this book was beyond my expectations....great character development... excellent plot...all the while your saying No..No don't go there! A must read.
I can't believe one person wrote they don't like Scott Brick's narration of this book. He is one of my favorite narrators and I look for him specifically. Please do not let that prior review influence you.
Scott's biggest fan
