I had a hard time getting through this book. I've enjoyed several others in this series (I started with book #5, read four in a row then returned to start at the beginning) and they have been quite good. The other books were "can't put down" but I had to force myself to stick with this one. The wandering time travel meditation confused me and I had to go back and listen to it again. It was odd. Even Pendergast was not his fabulous self.
On the positive side, the writing style is excellent. I also like the descriptions - as gruesome as some may be. The locales are described well also.
The production of the audiobook may have contributed to some of my disappointment with this book. This narrator was not the best but, worse that that, sections of text were repeated a number of times throughout the book. Usually just a sentence or two but it was extremely irritating. It's unfair to the author to butcher the book this way.
I have listened to the Pendergast series three times now and I still love it, in fact I think I'll listen to it for a fourth time!
I like the Pendergast series. I liked the narration better in Relic and Reliquary, but this guy is still good. Although a great story, it wasn't as suspenseful as Relic and Reliquary.
No, because there are too many other books to read by authors, and I will continue to do so.
love all the characters
I am at the movies sort of.
Pendergrast finding the formula for life extension
Love love love these books
I loved how the authors were able to take the supernatural and convince you it could really have happened.
As I have said before, these authors know how to weave a tale that grips you. Because I emotionally identify with Pendergast, I have difficulty when reading scenes where he could die. This story goes beyond that and fully immerses you in gripping detail scenes out of a nightmare. Having said that, i can't wait to start my next book.
