This is the first book I've read from the Cusslers and I thoroughly enjoyed it. There was substance. So many books these days just want to blow stuff up and call it a thriller.
s usual, Scott Brick delivers. I cannot say enough good things about his narration. He has taught me to search for books by narrator every bit as often as author.
I did not have to HOLD the book
Dirk,, he always seems to find a way to beat the bad guy
Wish the darn audible books were not so expensive. Seniors on social security have very little to spend on items such as this.
This book kept us going for many miles of driving. Humor and a bit of good ole suspense helped. The historical information was very nicely wove into the fabric of this story.
I had a issue with his last book , but he must have put some more effort in this one as it was a good listen. I like the character flow this time and enjoyed the descriptions of the foreign landscape in this book. It was not a great plot kinda all over the map but, I did enjoy another Dirk adventure in this series.
I am a big Clive Cussler fan, but this was the first audio Cussler that I have tried. The story is as good as his other books, but I found the narration banal and uninteresting. I will stick with paperpacks of Clive Cussler in the future.
The book it's self is very enjoyable, I just wish it had a different narrator. I have seen a lot of praise for Scott Brick on audible and I was looking forward to experiencing his outstanding oration. Sadly his voice is dull and nasal, his diction and tone are like a Charlton Heston parody, and as far as I can tell there is no difference between characters voices unless they are of a different nationality or sex. I guess I've been spoiled by Roy Dotrice and the like, true storytellers and artists. Or maybe I just expected too much because of the hype.
I listen to many books as I take my jogs every week. Some are much harder to listen to than others. This is one of those that keep your ears and brain interested. I highly recommend this as an audio book.
I was very impressed with this book great story that could come from the pages of the news today.
