DeMille / Brick is a great combination. Super book, entertaining and funny without being goofy.
This is a horrible book. Don't know how else to describe it - the movie would go straight to VHS tape and it would star Van Damme and Seagal and maybe Burt Reynolds chewing on a cigar. The story, the language and the characters are mind-numblingly stupid and shallow. What a piece of crap. It gets one star because I have too. I want my money back.
I like Perry / Malone and Brick who is an all time favorite - but this book was just.....boring.
This is just a silly book with standard stereo types and an extremely unlikely plot. Completely predictable and I found myself not really caring what happened to the characters or the rock for that matter.
Great read. Only bad thing about this book was that it kept me listening rather going to sleep!
Don't understand some of the comments about the narrator - I think he is doing a great job.
I will look for from same author and narrator.
This piece of crap is no better than a cheap soap. Disappointing in all it's shallowness.
Scott Brick is one of my absolute favorite readers but even he could not save this book. It is not often that I simply stop listening but this book was completely boring. The characters are uninteresting and it reads like a predictable bad TV show. Bummer.
I find it amusing that other reviewers find it necessary to turn their reviews into political statements. One should be able to read litterature with different views and be able to form ones own opinion. I found this book extremely interesting and couldn't stop listening to it. Even my 9 year old son enjoyed it. The most interesting thing about this book is that you really get the feeling that the author is attempting to tell the whole truth and nothing but the truth even if it goes against all we have learned about our heroes. I did not find it particular liberal although I can see where it might ruffle some feathers if you are just out to confirm the fairy tale history most Americans hold so dear.
Much better than the usual 'bubblegum' history you get through TV, movies, and politicians using bits and pieces of history where it suits their case. If they looked a little deeper as this book does, they might think twice about using some of these events as references.
When I finished the first time I started over and listened to it again. I found my self sitting in my car in the garage either at home or at work listening and not being able to turn it off.
Most excellent!! Highly recommended.
