Did not read the print version.
The whole of it . It was spell binding
All. excellent .
I shall read it again . Thank you Audoi and the Author .
After spending 17-some hours with this book I wonder how I managed to finish it, given the narrator's breathless, dramatic delivery of every word in the book. The story was interesting enough to overcome the narration. Barely. Someone, please tell Scott Brick that the authors deliberately included mundane details to provide a release from anticipated tension. Books should be read with a variety of moods and a selection of dramatic inflections to give the listener a break.
Only heard the audio version. Scott Brick gave a great performance.
Saw it coming, but entertaining none the less.
A carasmatic performance which he aptly performed a multitude of characters. Bravo.
Great concept, but turning it into a horror novel ruined it for me. Not believeable, sorry.
Wow! Preston / Child / Scott Brick, pretty hard to mess up a book. An awesome story clearly read with a great finish. Must listen!
Really enjoy listening to these books sure am glad I was introduced to Audible. Best dollar I've ever spent.
I enjoyed the book and the story line was good but was left just a little confused on the characters and they're place in the story once or twice. May have been just me but the idea of the story was fun but still have didn't like the narrater by much. I would recommend the book to everyone though and think it's well worth the dime to listen to it.
Aloysius Pendergast isn't in this book. But he might as well be. This has the same atmospherics, and even the same not-quite-supernatural undercurrents, as the Pendergast series -- which means this is wonderful stuff. The story is gripping, thoroughly thought out, perfectly paced; the sort of thing one expects from the Preston-Child duo.
It says much for the authors' skill that though Nora Kelly definitely isn't Pendergast (we catch on well before she does, much of the time), the difference does not detract from this book in the least. The authors are aware of the difference, and use it to the book's advantage. I hope we hear more about Ms. Kelly, whether or not Pendergast is also on board.
Had some trouble with staying interested in all the detail in this book. I usually like these authors but this story drug on a little too long.
