Tell us about yourself!Woof, woof woof ( I love audible, chasin and killin defenseless kittens and eatin em...yummy ). I luv dem thriller stories, and dream of J.D. Robb & yours truly doggy style, howl! Anyway, I is jus kiddin bout the kitties with peace, good health and lots of happy readin y'all!
Alright, we all are aware what this little appetizer is leading to...right to the grave, Two Graves that is. But hey, it's still Pendergast, along with pops, uncle and little brother to boot. The story is in my opinion a pretty blah Halloween piece amped up for those of us that have had some issues with dentists and/or sociopathic tooth obsessed neighbors. O.K. Mr. Preston and Mr.Child I think it's safe to say, it's main event time, "let's get ready to rum..."
This compact, chilling little story of a New Orleans legend turns the tooth fairy into a menacing character who twists the exchange of tooth for coin into a kind of mandatory tribute: hand over the tooth or else. It is a bargain that small children can live with. Older children and adults can foul it up, with dreadful consequences. Some childhood fantasies, perhaps, are best left alone.
With a foreboding, spine-tingling reading, “Extraction” is a finely wrought tale. As short stories go, it may leave just one too many questions unanswered for some listeners. It did for me, but I still enjoyed it immensely.
It is a fun short story. I think it may become a halloween favorite!
One of my all time favorite fictional characters is Pendergast.
To me he brings Pendergast to life. When i read the books i hear his voice.
Not really. i felt it was pretty entertaining all the way thru. Of course the disappearance of the uncle was a great touch.
I plan on sharing it with my grandkids when they are old enough~
Author, rabid Audible listener.
As far as short stories go, this was a good one. It is basically a tale of a mysterious man considered by young kids to be a very evil tooth fairy. The whole story takes place as Pendergast and his friends enjoy themselves before dinner. The story is short but it sheds some new light on Diogenes and perhaps Pendergast's future life choices.
yes of course!!
It solves a mystery all Pendergas fans have wondered about.
Wonderful story telling... I love his honeyed voice.
I didn't realize that this story actually tells the reader what we have always wanted to know.
I loved it.
Tell us about yourself!
Once again Pendergast is entertaining, eerie, and thought provoking.
The release at Halloween was time appropriate. The story adds another piece to the odd relationship between the Pendergast boys as they grew up. There is just the right amount of reality and the bizarre to make this a great addition to the saga.
Preston and Child continue to write unique situations for Pendergast. I do not hesitate to buy the new releases.
Rene Auberjonois is always a delightful narrator.
It fit into all the other characters in previous stories and was informative
Yes, it is very detailed and doesn't slow down
WOW Mr Auberjonis is without a doubt one of the best, his accented speech makes each
character come to life, He makes Pendergast very special along with each of the rest. Please don't retire anytime soon OK
That is a great title for this story Leave it alone
Look forward to more from Mr Preston and Mr Child the are a team that can spin a very good yarn
I'm a father of four and a husband of one. I am a big fan of The Pendergast series by Preston and Child as well as Dan Brown's Robert Langdon books. James Rollins' Sigma Force series is also one that I am always anxious to see. My favorite author of all though is easily Bill Bryson.
The tone and mood put me in mind of a Halloween story. The narrator does his usual excellent job and the story manages to capture the esscence of Pendergast wonderfully in such an short tale. Fans of the series will not be dissapointed in the least!
When Pendergast and his father enter the old mansion and discover its gruesomeness.
I have heard all of Mr. Auberjonois's narrations of the Pendergast series and in this short story he continues his great work.
Sometimes the Boogyman is real.
Definitely a recommended read for Preston/Child fans.
Edge of my seat? Well, no, but it kept my earbuds in my ears. I listened to the entire story in a single go.
Pendergast is always my favorite. He even showed a little more emotion than usual in this story.
My only disappointment was in finding that the actual story was only about 50 minutes long. The remainder of the recording was devoted to the first (second?) chapter of the upcoming novel Two Graves.
The story. The way Agent P tells it in his buttery way. The plot.
His voices of your characters are wonderful.
Can't wait for next one.
