Auberjonois has typically done well with other Pendergrast novels. This time he should have spent a minimum amount of time getting the Portuguese pronunciation CLOSE to correct. I almost stopped listening each time he tried to pronounce the Portuguese words. Seemed ok with the German but...
Suspensful and gripping novel with an excellent performance by Rene.
Prendergast contemplating sucide.
Friction between Father and Son.
Will listen to the book again in about a month.
Any attention whatsoever to the plot, editing, character development.
Yes, because I'm a huge fan of their writing, but in this book it seemed as if they'd dumped all their writing notes into a box and sent it off to a graduate student to fit into something resembling a book. Simply dreadful.
Rene did the best he could with a disappointing script.
Corinne, her father, Constance, Fowler, everyone in Brazil....
Better yet. Cut them all and start over.
I'm a huge fan of these authors. This book is an utter disappointment.
Rene Auberjonois' glorious narration. he truly captures Pendergast's honeyed drawl and sharp wit.
a volcano? didnt see that coming...
Agent Pendergast of course!
i nearly did. two sittings.....not much laundry was done that day.
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
