I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
I thought this book was absolultely fascinating to listen too. It took me to places that kept me constantly intrigued. The charachters were very interestlingly intertwined & the action was over the top.
I came to Preston & Child through their Agent Pendergast series and have thoroughly enjoyed their books. Just don't take it all too seriously.
Well the setting and the concept was interesting, particularly to us New Englanders. There is enough of a plot there to keep you going and although the character development is pretty minimal, at least the main character is somewhat engaging.
Overall I was very underwhelmed by the book. The plot was obvious and superficial. The characters where very artificial and they were only there to shore-up the weak plot. If you know anything about technology you will find the technical descriptions and dialog to be similar to something you would hear on a television drama: a recitation of buzzwords that make no sense to a technologist.
No and its not likely I will be investigating their other books any time soon.
Yes. I never cared for him anyway but he is particularly inappropriate for this book. His overly dramatic reading style makes this marginal plot sound even more hokey.
Hmmm. I listen during my commute so time isn't that big an issue, however if I had paid full price for the thing I might be upset. It was almost worth the $7. Free would have been even better.
The story was interesting but not without plausability issues. But I do like the authors way of writing and of course pirate books are a fun subject.
i surelyy would listen to this again...it keeps one on the edge of their seat.
the young man who witnessed his brother's death and how he eventually comes to deal with the emotions he experienced.
when the discovery of his brother's bones was revealed...
love love love these authors...they never fail to entertain...
The story was fun and action packed. Sometimes I found myself tuning out during some really wordy parts but liked the story overall.
This was a great listen. It had suspense, romance, man vs man conflict.. all in a treasure hunt!
I really liked all of the different personalities evident in this book. Each character was 3-D and had a past that shaped his future. I could identify and believe in the characters. The descriptions of the scenes and drama were vivid as if I were there. I felt I could smell and feel the pit.
The authors explored the effects of greed and human nature wonderfully. The contrasts between the main character before, during and after were very well done.
The narrator took the great story and writing, and brought it to life. I was very impressed.
So many times, we assume that the current intelligence is far superior to those that came before us. We forget that we only build on the true genius of those that came before.
I also liked the way the authors didn't leave us wondering in a "fake" ending .... "is the treasure there still?" There was a conclusion - not a setup for a sequel!
I would highly recommend this novel.
I would not be turned off from trying other books from these writers.
cut through the intro quicker
I enjoyed the story, not a big treasure hunt fan but this was pretty good,Scott Brick is always good to listen too.it ends just like you think it will, but that aside well worth the credit.
Very creative writing with good research behind the ideas
I guessed it
I love Scott's inflection
Treasure hunters beware!
