Intriguing, captivating, addictive.
Good question, Captain Bradamont comes close, a kind of Admiral Geary in being. But the book also depicts nameless workers, unruly mobs, sneaky snakes ,and all have their place in the story.
His even voice that still can bring the characters to life and making a difference without overdoing the shifts from falsetto to bass.
Lead well and Survive.
When does the next Campbell arrive in the Library?
As I don't spend time on an audiobook that can't capture me in the first 10 minutes, all rank high in my spending of time. The narrator makes or breaks this. Even if the book in itself is great, I can't keep on listening with a narrator that doesn't meet my standards.
The transfer from a typical traveling dialogue to the classic Admiral Geary storyline. Refreshing, inserting a tad of otherness to the storyline.
When Dauntless without firing 1 shot solves the attack on Geary's shuttle.
Guiding stars, ancient earth, great struggle.
It's a huge change from the 6 lost fleet originals. I see a new trilogy in the Beyond the frontier series.
The relief of a good performer doing the book right.
The lost fleet, beyond the Fronteer , Dreadnaught.
When the reborn Nimue finds out she has a "brother"..
Not really, that ain't my thing.
Eagerly awaiting remakes with mr Wyman as storieteller.
Adventure, fun, glory.
Good one. It's the typical Cussler. A basic succes formula. But other writers in the same genre use simular formula's. So the difficulty is the amount of books to chose from.
Pleasant voice to listen to, no excessive enthousiasme nor monotome droning , enough variation between the characters, in short, fine by me.
Back to the Saltmines. Or Ruby Intelligence.
Even if I have most, if not all Cussler books in my paper and/or digital library, I think i'll add them , as far as possible, to my Audible Library.
The story in itself was ok, as part of an ongoing series. So, in that respect it was a book for me.
On the other hand.
Anybody enjoying a hyped up voice. Or anybody liking a hiss in every word. It's difficult to anwers the basic question here. I'll ask other people listening to audiobooks.
The first seconds, to register the narrators voice and the way it was used. At first skipping seconds, and then chapters, it didn't change. Albeit clear and very comprehensible -my mother language ain't English- it just kept on irritating my ears and nerves.
No. Unless the style changes hugely, or I get payed royaly. And I have to admit, time is money. And I have already a lack of time, that's why I use audiobooks to "multitask". Driving long stretches for example, or other tasks that are done on automatic pilot.
If I would do that , the idea of an unabridged audiobook would go down the drain. And in an ongoing series of the magnitude of Safehold, it would be "blasfemous". I have read the book itself in Mobi format, and I can't express my dissappointment in this performance.
A total waste of my credit.
I was a platinum member. Now I'm a gold member. Will I be that in the forseeable future?
The setting and build up of the situation
Fairly typical for a multi book series.
I didn't read the book yet, But his change in timbre and the use of falsetto to depict other characters is appreciated.
5 hours is a long stretch.Ideal for a sunday night for me.
Keep it coming.
