I like the series in general, and found this book particularly engaging. Although the plot took several paths simultaneously, twists and turns in the plot were handled well.
I'm not sure what possessed the authors to cast as their villain one of the most colorful characters in one of the more beloved novels of Victorian literature. It means that anyone even mildly versed in the works of Poe, Wilkie Collins, and Dickens will figure out who done it within the first two chapters. Too bad, given the highly entertaining characters.
I thought it was very interesting story. Scott Brick was wonderful narrating!
Loved the characters. I have to get the rest of the series.
Scott brick is one of the best narrators I have listened to. His ability to change his voice amazed me. I was not sure I would like this book but I had an extra credit and decided to try a different genre. Murder mystery is not my favorite but this one was not bad. Just enough intrigue and unbelievable happenings to make me want to read another by these two.
Totally enjoyed this book. I guess book is the first of a trilogy...That is also a part of a larger Pendergast series.
I had a struggle with figuring out the order of this trilogy.
I Had to go to "good reads" for clarification.
If I understand it- The second book is Dance of death (book 2 of the trilogy - 6th book of the larger series)
Can you see my confusion??
At any rate this first book was an action filled adventure that has me starting the second book immediately.
Btw: Book of the dead it the third book.
Did not want to have to stop this story. Great characters, story and history The narrator is also perfect with all the different characters. Superb and sad it's done.
It was well written for a real world type story. I like more supernatural and monsters.
Much better than I expected! Now I'm looking forward to the next one and to the previous books that I've missed.
I liked that this kept me in my toes throughout. Pendergast is quite a character and the others in this book make for quite a cast. I'm glad the next book continues this story.
Scott Brick is simply amazing.
