The mechanics of the story are preposterous. Dropping a crucifix by parachute with a man nailed to it and a reporter can see him open and close his eyes as he descends. Really now!
The female character is supposed to be strong enough in her commitment to her profession so as to prove her worth to her father. For pity sakes woman, stop your whining. She has little to say that is not self pitying and not whining.
Dick Hill is a fine performer especially when he is given a decent story line to work with.
My iPhone did not fully download part 2 and I really didn't care. I didn't go back to remedy this again because I really just didn't care.
I listened to REPAIRMAN JACK-THE EARLY YEARS and felt involved with the characters and the story. I cared about the characters. Then you changed readers and it went downhill from there. I recognize this happens for whatever reason but if you need to change readers, the replacement should be equal to the original. Sadly, this did not happen. I listened to the next four and they will be my last. The narrator needs to learn the proper pronunciation of words that may be unfamiliar to him like the name of antibiotics. The narrator should know that a PITCHER is a vessel holding a liquid or a baseball player and that a PICTURE is an image on a screen or printed material. I can strongly recommend Jack's early years but I am so done with the remaining books.
It's an OK listen if you need to fill the time. Some of it quite interesting but it went on for way too long.
Liked the camaraderie and the action and back story. The story really didn't need all the crab robots-overdone and silly.
Easy listening voice
Yes, but only once.
Please ask folks who must read medical terms to seek the proper usage. It hurts my head when they don't. C-P-A-P is not ever used as individual letters. It's C-PAP. Any one using a CPAP machine for sleep apnea or medical personnel as in this case neonatal staff, will catch it and wince. Trust me, that's a large audience.
I've listened to most of the Cusslers available multiple times and this is not his best. I have a good and forgiving imagination and The Jungle stretches it too far. The narrator does not bring out the best either. I find myself more forgiving of mispronunciations if the narrator is good. It is cann U la not can noo la for cannula. Please bring back Scott Brick.
Why pray tell, must we have Scarpaci's heroine be so whiny and do things without thought of consequences? Women are stronger and smarter than this.I'd like a real woman who doesn't whine.
