The realness of the characters and fascinating story of their lives after an event that affected them all in different and unique ways.
I didn't have a favorite character.
No I haven't, but I enjoyed his narration very much. I love the British colloquialisms and sense of humor.
It built and built and came to a crescendo that I didn't anticipate.
When you have gallant swashbuckling heroes Royce and Hadrian, a bright underestimated princess and a waif for the unexpected heroine, plus a wizard and a mythical creature, it all adds up to a great listen.
Fun, energetic, just the right amount of suspense and surprises. I enjoyed it and have already downloaded the next two books in the series. I had to order those via Amazon to Audible.
This is an interesting look at the life, motivations and character of an ambitious young woman. The reader is also treated to an inside look at the workings of Sothebys auction house. My book-club read this Steve Martin gem, everyone enjoyed it but no one liked the the main character . Although she is a beautiful girl on the outside she is less so on the inside. Selfish and ruthless she uses and discards people who care about her.
The audible listener should look up the pieces of art that are referred to in this book. It is fascinating to see the actual works that are described and are an important element.
This book rates way up there with the best I've read. It's a terrific second installment. I too, like others have mentioned in reviews, struggled a bit with the first few chapters . I am so glad I stuck with it because it evolved into the amazing continuation of The Passage.
It is a deep, complicated and huge story. I loved it and am thrilled that there will be yet another part to this amazing trilogy.
yes of course!!
It solves a mystery all Pendergas fans have wondered about.
Wonderful story telling... I love his honeyed voice.
I didn't realize that this story actually tells the reader what we have always wanted to know.
I loved it.
Suspenseful, original, satisfying
I don't want to give away any of the terrific story line, but the reader really gets to know some of Pendergast's history and mysteries.
Oh yes, Ive listened to numerous book narrated by Scott Brick. I enjoy his style and his representation of Pendergast.
I couldn't put it down
This one came with a short story ' Extraction' that focused on something that was alluded to in 'Dance of Death'. While listening to many of the Pendergas books the reader is tantalized by an incident referred to in Pendergast and his brother's history. 'Extraction' is an amazing, imaginative clarifying story that gives the reader a satisfying understanding of what happened when the boys were young. I have always wanted to know more about the true origin of the hate that Diogenes has for Pendergas. This delivers....
What's not to love! It a Baldacci novel written so well and read beautifully.
A mystery with rough characters you end up rooting for. I liked it and will look for another novel with the same main character. I hope that happens.
After I read "fifty shades" I was reading the reviews. Someone suggested this book was a much more interesting read, better story development and much more sexy.
It is totally different than Fifty Shades, more grown up, less in your face but completely tantalizing and riveting. The writing is wonderful, perfect narrating from Susan Ericksen and wonderful old style language that is so entertaining and clever. I highly recommend it.
I love the dialogue ..its such an important part of the book. The story was great, characters richly developed. The story has a start, middle and a terrific ending....
Yep another good one from Jo Nesbo. A chilly read full of twists and turns....lots of despicable characters. More self destruction by our lovable idiot Harry Hole... but his mind is so clever ..its the most appealing thing about him.
