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.
Keeps your interest; better than the dirk pitt or the l'il pitts. Little slow in portions, but lots of action--typically miraculous at times--it is a classically cussler/dubrul adventure story where the worst of both authors gives way to the best of both. Definitely worth a credit.
THE BOOK Clive Cussler is terrific and his partnership with Jack DuBrul on this series is a real winner. There were, however, some loose ends to me in this book -- not big things, but little niggly things that made me listen a second time to see if I just zoned out on those bits. I didn't. Anyway, that's only a tiny critique, because it's a good, entertaining book.
THE READER Jason Culp was distracting to me on many of the voices. He makes the female characters sound like morons. Luckily he did Juan well or he would have totally lost me.
I really enjoy the Oregon files. It is a great fit in the Cussler legacy. This story takes from Burma (renamed Myanmar but you can't change what happened there in WWII) New Orleans and more.. Juan and the rest of the Corporation will keep you intrigued from beginning to End.
I had thought I'd miss Scott Brick and I did a bit, but Jason Culp does a good job.
You shouldn't regret purchasing this book!
This was my first Clive Cussler title and I have to say I loved it. I listened to it while working out in the yard. Twelve hours of re-landscaping my yard went by so fast I couldn't believe the time when I finally stopped working. If I hadn't have dropped from the physical exhaustion of hauling rocks and digging, I would have kept listening right through to the end. The narration and excellent story captivated me like I have seldom experienced before. I will be searching for more Clive Cussler titles, as well as other title narrated by Culp.
Great listen. Although a deviation from Scott Brick, Jason Culp did an excellent job. I disagree with other reviewers. I don't think it took anything away from the story.
Ever since Dirk Pitt teamed up with his children the Oregon Files has become my favorite Cussler series. I wish Pitt's kids would get new jobs and disappear.
This is a fast moving easy listening typical Clive Cussler tale with a little science fiction added to create a new twist.

No. He is a good reader
No extreem reaction but it did make me laugh because the heroes do the impossible.
