I could not get into this book. It just seemed to go on and on. When you finally find out what the secret of the students are, you are so ready to put the book down. If the secret was revealed sooner in the book, I think I might have been more interested.
Yes, and I did. It was so intriguing and it really showed Aloysius in a whole different light. The introduction of his brother was fantastic.
The introduction of Aloysius' brother, Diogenes.
Yes, the authors present information in a way that is interesting and insightful by their description of the setting, the development of the characters and by the revelation of the plot.
Nothing. I very much enjoyed the narration.
I'm not sure what type of reader would enjoy this book more than I did.
Absolutely not. Brimstone was not bad, but it wasn't as good as the other Pendergast novels that I've read.
The narrator did not detract from the book. It was more of the storyline.
I don't know if there was one particular scene as opposed to some of the descriptions that seemed to drag on and lose my attention.
It was time well-spent. The hours flew by as I listened because the story was so intriguing.
My favourite character was Aloysius Pendergast. His demeanor and subtleties are fascinating. He stuck out like a soar thumb in the town, however it did not distract him from the case on hand.
Aloysius Pendergast. Rene Auberjonois' Louisiana drawl is wonderful. He is by far the best performer of the Pendergast performers.
It inspired my to begin reading the Pendergast series.
I got lost in the story line. It took me a while to get into the story.
Made the beginning of the novel as exciting as the end of the novel.
Nothing, really. I thought he did a good job.
The reading of the letter that was found bored me although I realize it was a crucial part of the novel.
I loved the story line. I also loved the description of the setting. I felt as though I was in NYC the whole time I was reading.
There were a lot of characters as protagonists. Would have been better to have a main one or two.
Believable, engaging, spot-on
Yes, as a matter of fact it did. I looked up information on the NYC people who inhabit the tunnels. I never knew of their existence and took the NYC subways everyday.
Someone who enjoys scientific details. At a point in the book it started to drag on.
Not go into as much of the scientific details as they had.
Story development was very good. The best part of the book was the ending which was very thrilling. The character descriptions were excellent as well.
Would have liked to see more of Agent Pendergast.
I thought that this book was a very good read. The characters, although simply stated in nature, were very enjoyable. The setting for the story was ideal and it was great to read about a small community of folks and become familiar with that lifestyle. The mystery of the crime was captivating. I'd recommend this book to those who are looking for a simply delightful crime story.
