I found the unabridged version to be excellent. This is one of few books I actually listened to more than once.
I thought that the concept of the story was really good, but its execution was terrible. I constantly found myself annoyed at the author never choosing the obvious. All the characters were well defined and likable, but stupid. I'm all for stretching reality for a good story, but the main characters just ignore any logical conclusions over and over again. The ending was unbelivable and the epilogue - well, give me a break.
Although the narrator has a smooth voice it seemed to me to be nearly monotone.
Perhaps it is because I figured out the how almost immediately, this book just didn't keep my interest. This was my first Pendergast novel -- maybe I missed something, but in the end I just didn't care about the who or why.
