I have liked his previous books, but found this one very drawn out. Probably would not recommend
the last scene as the main caracters sit buy the fire, Pendergast, his son and Ms. Green try to retun to a "normal Life"
I love Pentergast and can't wait for the next book. The narrator Rene Auberjonois is the only voice for this series, he's amazing. Tricking dialog he floats through and his tone and control are the best ever to listen to. His accents are dead on and you won't be distracted or lulled into wandering away from the story because it's riviting. This was NOT a cliffhanger, but you know there will be more to come.
Rene's reading of "Two Graves" comes across flat. His tonal quality leaves much to be desired. The reader should put more character infliction in the reading to be more enjoyable.
I enjoy all of Child's books.
Yes, the flat reading was like emotionless narration quite often.
No, I could not listen for long due to the narration.
Yes I would recommend this to anyone who loves a good mystery, or just reads lot of the Douglas Preston Lincoln Child books.Its fast paced ,compelling and hold your interst throughout the book. Rene Auberjonois is great narrator especially for the Pendergast series.
I've listened to quite a few narrations by Rene Auberjonois al are excellent
When Pendergast Loses Helen for good
I would rank it 9 out of ten. I enjoy the reader. He really manages to add to the characters.
I was so surprised to discover the identity of the murderer. Showed another dimension of Spec agent Pendergast. I love all the twists in this book. I love to read about the very unique characteristic of Pendergast and his ward. I have gotten addicted and can
Not wait for the next book!
I thoroughly enjoy listening to this narrator. He really makes the characters come to life and is very masterful In his depiction of Pendergast.
I think these writers manage to strike at all your emotions. I was mainly on the edge of my seat wondering who was going to survive this one. Pendergast and his many idiosyncrasies always make me laugh.
This entire series of books would be great fodder for a book club. Several of my friends read these books and we talk about them all the time!
The first one I read was Still life with crows. I couldn't put it down. The series has gotten sillier with each book after that. What would be wrong with the quirky FBI agent solving crimes like in crows.
Read a different book
all of them
This was a classic case of a 16-hour book that should have been 10 or 11 hours. There were way too many distractions and side trips, plus I felt like the storming of the island and fort in Brazil took up half the book. And we all knew what the outcome would be.
yes. He is a good reader -- the only saving grace.
cut the "boys in Brazil" segment down to about an hour
