Bringing Tesla into the story. So few people know what a genius he was and how he got screwed over by Edison.
Clive Cussler is my favorite autor ever since I read Raise the Titanic. He started to get repetitive and predictable. His style came back with the Bell Series. They are wonderful and now he has brought Kurt Austin back into the fold.
Worst Australian accent EVER!! I love Scott Bricks narration and have listened to many of his...this was so disappointing. He did a really bad Aus accent and it was almost a deal breaker for me. Made me dread when the Aus characters were talking and in turn made the book much less enjoyable
Definitely. Cussler still delivers a good story. Even though you know the good guys come out ahead, you still want to find out how and it keeps you interested.
I read on a review somewhere else in which the reviewer mentioned "Did you find yourself sitting in the car or walking another lap trying to finish a chapter?" To me that is is a great measure of how good a book is. And for me, the answer was a resounding yes. Several times!
Scott did an awesome job. Love the Russian accents :)
Yes, it does go way over the edge of believability as far as science. Some things are just not physically possible...but, you kind of come to expect that with some Cussler novels. If you are the type that wants complete accuracy, it might annoy you. If you just want a great FICTION story, the impossibilities are easy enough to overlook. Don't let it keep you away.
Cussler, Connelly, Clancy I like all with a C ...
Do not know how to express it but even though I finished the listening, this is one of the weakest of "Cussler" books.
It flows but lacks something. it begins to resemble Mr. Brown, another book off the mill, based on same recipe as before ...
I found this book unsatisfying . The stories was superficial simplistic & predictable . Also as an Australian I found the readers attempts at an Australian ascent truly horrible . It got to the point that I just could not keep listening . Why don't these readers listen to some real Australian ascents .Does Russell Crow or Nichole Kidman sound like this?? It was a cross between Michel Cain & Dick Van Dike in Mary Poppins ??? This reading was horrible & if I may say as an Australian insulting .
It was predictable & the attempt at an Australian ascent was horrible .
He was OK when reading in his own voice but listen to some real Australians before attempting the ascent again .
Please if there are Australian characters in future readings work at getting the ascent right . Imagine if you were listening to an Englishman doing a reading & every American character sounded like Gommer Pile ! That is how this reading came across to me.
