Its Dirk Pitt and its Clive Cussler. Need I say more? If you love Dirk you are going to listen to it, if not you're not.
I waited and waited for this book to take off and get good and exciting but it never did. And I sit here stunned this book is getting such great reviews. The story is not that exciting. Jake does a great job reading the book. The story is well written by someone with a very good knowledge of the english language. I expected so much more based on the reviews of others. I was wrong. Save your money for the movie version of this one.
This was very interesting, I dont remember learning any of these events during history class in high school. A very good and well paced book to listen to. I was concerned that Bill OReilly would sound like he does on TV(somewhat confrontational) but he did a really good job narrating the book. I enjoyed it and would recommend it.
I had to stop listening to the book, because the narrator was so hard to understand. Not that its a British voice but, its hard to understand when the story changes scenes. It is very confusing to listen to. I do not recommend this.
Such a great mix of understanding life in the 1900's. Cussler is so great at it. I was concerned when I read that the book goes back in time, to bell as a new PI, but at the end of the book it jumps into Bell's later days. A very good story. and Scot Brick is just the best. No question.
i was find with book 2 except they used another narrator, which makes it harder especially if you go right from book 1 to book 2. Otherwise I like it. Even though it was easy to see guess who the bad guy was early on in the book
I enjoyed this 1st book series of the privates Very good, too short but all pattersons are short. not sure patterson is the best bang for a credit here on audible.
as long as you understand technology then you will be fine with this novel. a very good book - ted bell story
Another good book by Rosenfelt, I enjoyed it, just like the rest of the series.
I found as I listened to the book, it became more of a "look what I did" and that was not the kind of book i was looking for. I got bored with it, and moved on.
From the reviews I expected a much more adventurous story. And it could have been, this was a boring story. the worst part of the story is the cliffhanger at the end, I did not realize this was a book 1 of several books. I do not like how the story did not end at the end. I would not recommend this book. I would love to find a Clive Cussler - Dirk Pitt book where the Dirk Pitt is gay. I guess I will keep looking.
