Narration is fantastic! Couldn't ask for better!
This is a new genre for me. Action, thriller with a bit of the supernatural thrown in. I really loved the discriptions of the underworld. The secondary story is very interesting. I really enjoyed the descriptions of the ancient world.
Sean Mangan did a terrific job in narraration! I was never confused on who is speaking. Each character is developed and unique. I cared about them all!
To be fair, there are parts of this story are really absurd. The main character has superhuman strength due to a bullet lodged in his brain. There were other things as well that were unrealistic. I was able to overlook these faults because I really enjoyed the story and found the characters lovable. You really have to suspend your disbelief for this book but if you can do that then you will really enjoyed this book. I recommend this book for anyone who enjoys books like the Relic by Douglas Preston & Lincolin Child.
I really enjoyed the descriptions of the New York Museum of Natural History. The authors give a glimps into what the public dosen't see...the rest of the iceburg hidden below the depths of the waters. In a way this book made me think of the TV series Bones. A great adventure in many ways.
Pendergast! Confident, quiet and smart with an adorable southern drawl. Pendergast is fantastic and I can't wait until I can read the next in the series.
Any fan of audio books knows how important the narrarator is. They can either make or break a book. This is one of those narrarators that I would listen to even if the story was not something I was interested in. Fantastic! Lots of action, lots of interesting, well developed characters and never any confusion on who is who and what is what.
I don't scare easy. I find that most stories that are horror or supernatural are either dark and depressing or just gory. This book is the type of scary I like. The anticipation is wonderful. Monsters that going bump in the night!
