Made the mistake of just grabbing next Glenn Cooper book while waiting in line. Didn't listen to sample like I normally do. Big mistake. Henri Lubatti is a horrible narrator ... no sense of pacing, no sense of the story, plods along with no sense of style, inflection is all off, WORST FRENCH ACCENT I've encountered ... I could go on, trust me. I didn't make it through the second chapter.
Have no idea if the book is any good. Couldn't find the story because Lubatti's narration was that bad. Turning book back in. Shame, because I love Glenn Cooper. And double shame because I'm telling you not to waste your time (which I believe a lot of people will agree) ... which means Cooper's book isn't going to be heard.
C'mon publishers ... don't put crap like this out here. Find a better narrator!
I listen to a lot of audiobooks.
Look, I get the Dan Brown craze. I read them and was on the hook. It was in my reminiscence that I found this book, The Tenth Chamber, and thought, oh yeah, an engrossing read that has some history, action and a fast paced plot. Sure, The Tenth Chamber does indeed have all of those things...and yet they all come together in a story that actually made laugh OUT LOUD. Seriously. It was totally worth it for giggles. If that's what you're looking for, go for it. You will not be disappointed......
I liked this one. It was well rounded, pulled together just when I thought I was lost. Suspense and surprises. I think you are on the road to being one of the better writers of these genres of our times. Henri...kudos to you. You brought the story alive for me. Listener, get it. Give this author a chance with this book.
I never read or even heard of Cooper before reading The Seventh Son and it was so good I am going through them all. Excellent story lines spanning millennia and nicely tied together in the end.
This Book was one that I found fast-paced with an interesting storyline there were parts of this storyline that reminded me of Clive Cussler book yet it was lacking in the high energy of a Clive Cussler book, so if you're looking for a good mystery in history then you'll enjoy this audiobook
Clever fountain of youth tale that spans centuries to reach its ""Hitchcock-like" conclusion. Wildly creative, the author seamlessly weaves centuries of information toward a single conclusion. I admit, it took two listenings to fully appreciate the story; there are a lot of players. The narration is excellent.
I enjoyed the premise of a long held secret passed on from generation to generation, and there were wonderful twists in the many subplots.
This is the first time I listened to Lubatti, and at first I thought I had made a mistake, but it became a happy mistake. While his narration itself was hard to get used to, he is fantastic at bringing the various characters to life with different voices. I am glad I stuck with the novel for the plot, but also for the performance.
Yes, and I pretty much did use any spare time I had to devour this book.
No. The author is on my "don't read" list; the presentation was good
Stronger plot and in particular a more plausible finish. The scenes in ~1300AD were uninteresting and added little.
Those involving Homo Sapiens were good as was start of story in modern times.
The story was predictable and plodded along.
Sort of. I'm not in the mood for a story that just goes on and on and on without a payout.
Most of the book.
Maybe someone will like it.
