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.
It is up there in the best ten.
The telling of the sons and his wife, and Constance.
The part where he first went to the island of the fortress and was caught.
Love this series!!!
Love excellent narrators like Ray Porter. Love the Joe Ledger series.
Twin sons for Pendergast? The is more of a Pendergast series more than ancillary characters.
Brilliant in story and narration. The way he grieves and how he enters the Nazi town is very good.
Two threaded stories that also welcomes back Carrie. You will enjoy the back a forth of all the characters. Great ending that makes you want to read the next in the series.
I love that the authors were able to bring back the past in a way that just wasn't completely absurd. The storyline was suspenseful and exciting and heartbreaking.
No spoilers, but Pendergast's emotions throughout the book helped me remember that he was a human being with actual feelings, and not just an FBI robot.
The narrator just has such a distinct elderly voice. He's terrible at accents, which came through very frequently in this book. I like to have narrators that make me forget I'm listening to someone read a book, and he's bad at that. His voice isn't displeasing, but when you have a wide range of characters, it's just not very fluid.
Voracious reader with a 70hr working week who rediscovered his passion for reading through Audible. Secretly in love with commutes!
I have been listening to the entire Pendergast Series up to now, starting with The Relic and am a great fan of AXP.
While the "Helen Trilogy" is clearly not up to the level of the other novels, both in character development, research, and apparent lack of entertainment value, Two Graves marks the low point of even the Helen Trilogy.
A flat story completely devoid of any literary highlights with predictable, much-abused stereotypes and zero character development does not make for good listening. What is next - Resurgent Japanese Samurai & Evil Russian Dictators? I only really enjoyed listening to the last chapter.
I am hoping that the authors will pick up the pieces in White Fire. Messrs Preston & Child, this book rates an F+ at best and is not worthy to be a AXP novel.
As a footnote, it is inconceivable to me that the authors can spend a year researching a novel with a fair amount of foreign language content, only to manage to get it wrong through sloppy research. This is eerily matched by Rene Auberjonois's clear lack of preparation by matching his atrocious pronunciation to the poor quality of Preston & Child's book.
The low-point of the Pendergast Series and best avoided at all costs, if only to help fill in the background on the Pendergast family saga.
Purposturous story, absolutely impossible combination of events, lacks any believability . 145 year people, nazi twin village in Brazil , on and on. Boring and absurd.
That was the only high point. Well read.
All of them.
