Maybe someone into vampire stories. Reading it as a book might help, because the performance was painful. I can't exactly describe the problem with the narration other than that it was so slow and monotonous with odd enunciation of words that I had trouble concentrating and getting through the book.
Not at all what I expected as someone who has enjoyed Rollin's books in the past. I should have read the reviews and will do so carefully before I buy another one of his.
I'm not sure any narrator would have gotten me to finish this book. I have been an Audible customer for over 5 years and this was the first book I was unable to complete thanks to the narrator.
Can't think of any.
The narrator is on my "never buy again" list.
A good narrator - I could not even follow the story. He is slow and deliberate in his speech which slows the story significanlty.
Only if narrated by someone else
Did not get far enough into the story to say
James Rollins has been my favorite author for a long time. This book in particular was a little farther from his other books. Even though it had most of the ingredients, I felt that it lacked that convincing X factor. His fantastical stories in Subterranean and Amazonia had a factor of conviction that this one lacs. It is just a story .. A good one, but a story.
I tried this on the basis of someone's recommendation of Rebecca Cantrell. I'm having to quit at about four hours because of the juvenile and hackneyed plot, infantile dialogue and horrible narration. I'm going to put Baskous on my list of narrators to avoid.
This is not a Sigma book. It is by the same author, but is a unique path to the Vampire genre popular today. I don't care for the genre, but I really enjoyed this book as well as the followup "Innocent Blood". Good book overall. Wonderful narration
I prefer urban/para romance right now for the fantasy aspect, but I listen to other genres as well.
I didn't really know what to expect. James Rollins usually doesn't write this genre of book, but her sort of does. I know that sounds odd, but this is a paranormal adventure book? I'm not sure how else to describe it. Its along the lines of his usual format but throw in Vampires and some occult and you're in the ballpark.
At times it did. The book was definitely interesting. The plot was good, it had a lot of detail and back story. The "world" was well thought out and quite descriptive. It felt real enough.
I didn't have a favorite. This is the first book I have listened to by this narrator.
Only at certain points. Then it would drop off and I would find a stopping point, so I guess I should have answered no.
I have purchased the second book to see if the story progresses. It has an interesting premise and sometimes the first book can have a little bit of a slow start. I hope the next book is even better.
another vampire, warewolf book and not a good one. The reader isn't that good either. Tried twice to listen to it, didn't get thru the first part either time.
Loved most of James Rollins previous books
