Yes. The weaving of the story in these novels is so complex that another listen to the entire trilogy is a must. It is imperative to listen in order.
When Pendergast is standing on the stones with his son but doesn't pull the trigger yet...and when the full story of Constance Green is revealed. There are so many that I can't sort through them all.
Yes. I listened to him in Fever Dreams and Cold Vengeance. He is a superb narrator.
I had extreme reactions but sometimes I wanted to strangle Vincent and other times Pendergast himself. Preston and Child are an amazing duo.
Bring on more Pendergast!
Finally finding out what happens to everyone.
He is Pendergast.
I have enjoyed this group in the series.
Typical Agent Pendergast
I love the fantastical story line and deeper psychology of Pendergast.
He is the perfect story teller for these books. The story just rolls off his tongue and keeps me enthralled from beginning to end.
When Lt. Vincent D'Agosta betrays him.
People seem to be disappointed in the fantastical nature and 'Indiana Jones' types stunts in these books. My question is, how did they get this far in this series if they did not appreciate this type of writing. Loved the book and the more I learn of Pendergast, the more I feel for him.
I stumbled upon this novel based on its recommendations and not knowing it was part of a series. Delicious! Such action, suspense and interesting characters and plot development. I now have to decide if I want to read the other dozen books in the series now that I know the ending...
I love to be scared, does anyone write anything scary anymore? Maybe I have just become numb.
Brought earlier books into focus
All the pendergast books by Lincoln and Child
Awesome as always
These books move me from cover to cover, but there was one that i can't tell you about because it would be a spoiler
Must read for Pendergast fans
Audible Books have allowed me to be a "reader". I now enjoy novels and stories I never knew about.
The humanization of Pendergast
Mr Auberjonis MUST continue reading the Pendergast series, because he IS Pendergast..He makes the story jump out at the listner.
You CAN NOT make a film of this book. There is no actor that looks like the discription of Pendergast... so you would end up with the same FAILED movie like the recent Jack Reacher Movie...Come on as 5'6" actor to play a 6' 5' character.
The details of the locations, in addition to the characters, is wonderful. I love the historical information on New York City. And I live in Nebraska.
I just couldn't get in to listening to this book and the accent seemed to drone on to me for some reason.
I liked it, but was a little tired of this melancholy tortured Pendergast. I am glad that the Helen storyline is now resolved. I liked the Pendergast character from the books prior to these last few.
I liked the story, and narration was excellent as always. No complaints other then I miss the main characters prior personality traits. I think the Tristran character will be a great addition in future stories.
I love all the Pendergast books, and Auberjonois is the perfect reader!
great writing and narration make a perfect experience.
The simple shifts of timbre and syntax to delineate character changes is brilliant.
Yes...so I purposefully broke it onto a week.
More shorts to hold us over!
I am someone who enjoys audible books very much now that they exist. As a young student (real young) I can remember a teacher telling me how books can transport people to different places & open up a whole new world. This is how listening to audible books make me feel. Now if I can just stop falling asleep while listening to them at night I would be fine. Ha ha
The last three quarters of the book.
That is hard to say. There were new characters introduced & others expanded on.
Always a pleasure to hear him narrate
This book was outstanding! However, I have to admit I was slightly confused when, although I can understand the reasoning it began with a repeat of the last scene of the prior book. Also I had a hard time in the very beginning with some of the author’s writing choices for what could be called the ‘Pendergast miracle dedication, strength & action’ scenarios. The almost inhuman hardships that Pendergast goes through in the very beginning of the book were really over the top for me & it was just too much for me to swallow. I don't know about other readers, but when the main good guys get injured or hurt I bleed along with them. BUT as the book continued the story lines improved tremendously & I became totally mesmerized by more sensational new plot introductions & further explanation of prior book plots. This book was like getting unexpected presents I wasn’t expecting. It was just like a 3D movie where the audience starts to duck least they get hit with the action. Right up until the end it was hard to stop listening to what was going to happen next. I don’t know how these two authors can unwind enough to go to sleep at night after writing a book like this…..it is that good!
