It was very captivating, had some well placed humor, had interesting historical facts and I enjoyed the characters and the reader. Clive Cussler doesn't dissapoint!
book 3 down. I keep hoping Scott Brick will stop with sing-song narration. I feel like I'm listening to a kindergarten teacher read out loud.
for the book: all have very similar vibe. in a way it made me (the reader) feel more comfortably familiar with each book. the Fargos find a way to keep things real...no matter how deep'a trouble they're in! I love treasure hunting, foreign locales, rocks and caves too.
I'd compare (if I had to) these books to the Robert Langdon series.
bottom line, come along. let's listen to Sam & Remi get themselves in deep sh*t. serious entertainment. won't disturb your sleep. good clean fun!
I love the Sam and Remi Fargo books! A tantalizing mix of ancient mysterious legends, high adventure, and campy love story. The good guys always win, yet I still come back for more. The narrator is excellent as well, flawlessly depicting accents of varied languages.
I absolutely enjoy any book by Clive Cussler, at first I was hesitant about this series but having read or listened to all the books in his other series, the Fargoes have reeled me in and I'm hooked, and I also enjoy Scott Brick's narrating he helps to keep the listener engaged.
I drive about 650 miles a week, Audible helps me make those trips palatable - some fiction, self help and business "reads" add value to me.
Pretty good overall, I took too long to finish and had to bactrack a couple of times but was worth finishing.
It's nice to get a new perspective of the histories of other cultures in these books. The antagonist and protagonist play against one another with scale and believability.
I just read 3 of the Fargo series back to back, so this review will cover all 3. I've read other Cussker books and always have found them well written with solid plots. And Scott Brick is one of favorite readers; I mean the man is gifted. So when the Fargo series came up on a $4.95 sale, I figured I'd dabble. Here's my one regret: I should have bought more of them at $4.95. I should have bought the entire series. Not that I want to keep reading them right now. 30+ hours of the Fargos will hold me over for awhile, but these books are great escapist go-to reads. You like the characters (though Sam and Remy's relationship is a little too perfect) and the weaving through the plots are always right and fun. Of the three, I think I liked The Kingdom best, but maybe it was because it was the first of the 3 I read.
