    Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site. What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine. The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder....a bounty that has never been found. As they follow the trail, the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of treasure hunters.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Tombs in three words, what would they be?

    Starts out same as all other Largo tales. However, story gets old as the impossible continues to happen over and over again.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Make the story more realistic as the Largos go about the adventure and less mission impossible.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    no

    Treasure hunters Sam and Remi Fargo are exploring the Great Pocomoke Swamp in Delaware when they are shocked to discover a World War II German U-boat. Inside, they find a bottle taken from Napoleon's "lost cellar." Fascinated, the Fargos set out to find the rest of the collection. But another connoisseur of sorts has been looking for the bottle they've just found.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story line was interesting, but the repeated impossible escapes become boring. focus more on developing the mystery and less on creating the countless and impossible escapes.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler again?

    Focus more on the mystery and more realistic dialog


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good read


    Did Spartan Gold inspire you to do anything?

    No

  • Terminal Freeze

    Story
    (237)

    In this riveting new thriller, Lincoln Child weaves together a stunning Arctic landscape, a terrifying mythic creature, and a pervasive mood of chaos and fear. With Terminal Freeze, Child demonstrates why he has become a major best-selling author, and why his novels electrify and enthrall so many.

    Lee says: "a gourment meal for us lovers of horror fiction"
    "Perfect mix of science and myth"
    Overall

    Scott weaves together a believable story of science in the begining and then stretches it into myth that pulls you into the story. One can identify with many of the characters and big business types as well as the sterotype navtive's spirit world...the not so good, greedy, and the saints. Great read!!

  • Flory: A Miraculous Story of Survival

    Story
    (28)

    Like Anne Frank, Flory Van Beek was a young girl caught in the ruthless Nazi occupation of Holland. But Flory survived to recount her extraordinary story of persecution and survival. Flory and her husband, Felix, endured the sinking of a ship bound for safety in the New World, the increasing danger of the occupation, and finally a life in hiding. This inspiring account vividly captures the terror of the Holocaust while telling a poignant story of love and courage.

    Joanne says: "A glimmer of light in an otherwise tragic tale"
    "Reflection: Education does not assure kindness"
    Overall

    I'm stuck, same as the author, of how Germany's people could go along with such terrible crimes. The German people were top in many of their engineering and art fields. Education abounded. The lesson: no country or peoples are immune to committing atrocities on other peoples.

    Nick Heller is tough, smart, and stubborn. And in his line of work, it's essential. Trained in the Special Forces, Nick is a high-powered intelligence investigator - exposing secrets that powerful people would rather keep hidden. He's a guy you don't want to mess with. He's also the man you call when you need a problem fixed. Desperate, with nowhere else to run, Nick's nephew, Gabe makes that call one night.

    Earl says: "Excellent weaving and unexpected"
    "Excellent weaving and unexpected"
    Overall

    Finder's weaving of the plot provides excellent entertainment because one cannot anticipate every twist and turn in the story (however, many can be predicted). He does get somewhat verbose in his descriptions; but, I enjoyed the artful mental paintings...my wife, however, did not. This is a perfect book for a long drive!
