This was a pretty good book. I enjoyed the story. It was obviously well researched. My only complaint is the narration. Scott Brick read with a dry monotone that became annoying after the first few "pages". He made it sometimes puzzling as to what mood or emotion was being expressed by a character. It is a shame, as a more expressive narrator would have made this a much more enjoyable book. I love audio books, but the narration can change the entire mood of the story. However, I'd still recommend the book on its own merits.
Say something about yourself!
This is more of a scientific adventure than anything else don't expect many twist or a big hook. If you can get past that the character development is the heart of the book with very good detail throughout, I would really look forward to a sequel.
Entertaining story but Scott Brick made it a very difficult listen. I enjoy being swept into a book by a great narrator who can make the characters and story come to life, but Scott Brick isn't one of them.
The first part was interesting. The middle part went on FOREVER. I found myself fast forwarding through a 10 chapter (or more) sea voyage where the same thing just kept happening over and over. If I had to read about the ship going to the top of the wave and back down one more time, my head was going to explode, so I just FF through until the end, which in itself was very disapointing. The ending was not satisfying and was written as "news stories" so it was almost like the writer got as tired of writing it as I did listneing to it. The story could have easily cut out 10 hours off and just got on with the plot...what little there was of it. In short, interesting idea, but poorly exectued.
I decided to use audible books to encourage myself to walk to become fitter, wow I found myself walking further and further because I wanted to "just finish the chapter". I found this book totally absorbing and could almost visualise the events unfolding. A great read./listen.
