I should have read the book. The pace seemed slow.
Clive Cussler's work is so good that even a so so rendition is still worthwhile.
There was not enough vocal distinction between the characters to follow the storyline. There was one minor character who sounded so much like Tennessee Tuxedo that I was so distracted until I could place the voice to the 1960's cartoon character. I have no idea what that part of the story was about.
I really wanted to love this like Sahara or other classic Cussler but this was only good enough for a road trip. There will be no weekend rewind.
Best Oregon Files book so far, with the possible exception of Dark Watch. Good narration once you get used to Juan's voice, well established by Scott Brick, being so different. Intrigue, twists and turns, and lots to keep you guessing about how the villains are accomplishing their almost supernatural... villainy (is that a word?). Cussler is just a nameplate for this series, the writing is pure Jack. If you have never read Du Brul's Mercer series, go buy them all today.
I enjoyed it, BUT, it is NOT up there with the rest of the Oregon Files books, or Clive Cussler's normal "GREAT" writing. The new charachter, "MacD Lawless" was poorly developed, somewhat unbelievable, and just did NOT fit in with what I have come to think of as the "Normal Oregon Crew".
To ME, the book was not -Bad-, just not GOOD, or as good, as I've come to expect. Enjoy it all the same, It IS enjoyable never the less.
Really enjoyed this story as I do with all Cusslers' work. I read some bad reviews of the narrator so I was apprehensive. After all Scott Brick is one of the all time greats. After the first 10 minutes I was completely absorbed in the story and never gave it a second thought. Jason Culp did a very good job, well done. If you like Cusslers work, you won't be disappointed.
Great story, Cussler does it again, but why did they chage narrorators. Scott Brick has done such a wonderful job in the previous books in this series. Kind of ruined it for me.
It kept my interest until the end. Well Done. It had a bit of a SciFi ending, but not so much as to cross-over. I'm buying more Oregon
Say something about yourself!
This is an interesting book.......I think I would have like it better with a different reader...just not as good as Scott Brick. It just isn't the same with a different voice.
great book /story - I LOVE Cussler's books and have read ( listened) to them all
Scott Brick is DA MAN ! No offense to Jason Culp, but he aint no Scott Brick
I have gotten so used to the characters by way of Scott's awesome narration, that when Jason read, it was like a completely ( and not close to as enjoyable ) new set of characters
BRING BACK SCOTT !!
Great story, liked the introduction of a new character. Ending was cool too, makes you eager for more. Only problem was the narrator. At first I didn't think I could listen to him because of the wheezing sound but I got over it and really enjoyed it. Can't wait for another book. Recommend this even without Scott Brick.
sports announcer, cyclist, enjoys to travel and the outdoors.
A great book by Cussler, the story could have been expanded at the end, but only because I would have liked it not to end. As for the narrator Culp, he takes a little to get use to, but then again nobody is as talented as Scott Brick or Jim Dale.
