Brimstone was just great from beginning to end. The clues found at crime scenes were just mind boggling. I don't like the Pendergast novels that stray too far from reality, so I was hesitant for a while about the clues that were found. However, I stuck with it and it got so much better. Definitely a lot of twists and turns I never would have suspected.
Scott Brick has narrated a few of the Pendergast novels, and Rene Auberjonois does the others. I can't stand Rene Auberjonois as a narrator. Scott Brick makes you forget he's one guy reading an audiobook. He performs, as opposed to Auberjonois, who just recites.
I love to read to escape. I like to walk in the stores with a good book, browse the mall on a rainy day and people watch while I listen.
I really like this series, yes and will.
some parts, and other parts were long winded.
I really enjoyed the relationship between D'Agosta and Pendergast. They were a real team. The only downside to this book is that it left things hanging. Not fair !
Avid audiobook listener. If it's not on audio, I probably haven't read it!
I have so many other books downloaded. But every time I finish a book in this series I want to move on to the next! The characters just keep getting more interesting, and the stories more intense. I'll be disappointed when I get caught up to the latest book!
I found this audiobook very intriguing. Not my usual sort of fare , but I really enjoyed the southern eloquence of the Pendergast and his sort of gothic nobility . Definitely a new fan of the series.
Voracious reader with a 70hr working week who rediscovered his passion for reading through Audible. Secretly in love with commutes!
I really enjoyed the setting, outside of New York and the more complex characters.
My favourite so far, together with Relic.
So far, its the best book I have read from the series. I am moving on to the next book!
Yes, but it was a bit up and down.
I am so glad someone finally had some sparks of romance- a much needed tension and factor in the previous books.
I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.
I was completely engrossed in this story, so much so, I hurriedly went online as soon as it ended and purchased the next in the series, only to discover that I wasn't ever going to find out how Pendergast escaped and I didn't remember who had different colored eyes so there was no help there. I was so disappointed after starting the next book and discovering I was never going to know, I came back online and reduce my rating of the story from five down to one. If Pendergast weren't the mail protagonist maybe it wouldn't matter but in this story it matter. I am very disappointed that the book didn't develop a complete conclusion.
This was good. Good suspense, characters were more real. Story had good plot.
I thought it was better then the previous.
