In a peaceful, verdant valley on the Equator, the sun always sets at 6, and a good audiobook is always the perfect evening companion
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.
I'm a father of four. I am a big fan of The Pendergast series by Preston and Child as well as Dan Brown's Robert Langd
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.
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.
I enjoyed the series of of Pendagrass and the interaction with his family. I enjoy clive cussler, james rollins and steve berry; but I put these authors above all the others. I've read many of the other authors books and some were disappointing. Can't say that about these guys.
Even though it was short, this story had all the bells and whistles of a good book. Storyline had a twist to it that was surprising and kind of spooky.
He has a good range in his voice and is easy to understand.
Wish the authors had more books out there.
I'm a serious Audible Junkie, just can't get enough of this great company.
Yes, kinda addicted to this series.
Okay, for a short story, how far can you go in a short time, make sure you've listended to other Pendergast stuff otherwise you wont know the characters.
Good speaking voice, like listening to an old friend tell a good story
Probably not, too short
No, I love the Agent Pendergast books, but this short story was a little different from the other books and for some reason bothered me. I found it a little too gruesome. Maybe a part of Agent Pendergast's childhood we didn't really need to hear about.
The short story actually only took up about 45 minutes or so of the audio. The last 15 minutes or so were an excerpt from another book. Since it didn't really tell you which one it had no real redeeming value to being added, although it was interesting. All you could glean from it was Pendergast trying to find his wife Helen and what was happening to Helen at the time.
I absolutely love the books written by Preston & Child, especially the Pendergast series. Therefore I was very surprised that I was so disappointed by this novella. The story is flat and strange and feels unfinished. However, one unsatisfactory story will not keep me from reading more of their novels.
