I've read several of McDevitt's books though this is the first audio version. Yes.
I like the archaeological aspects of solving the mystery of the abandoned cities, etc.
Listened to this book because I'm a fan of the t.v. series and was pleasantly surprised that the book followed a much different plot line. I love the main characters, and you get more personal details from the book. The narrator did a good job, but his versions of female characters was a stretch.
Narrator needed more energy
Definitely not, too predictable
Slow paced story with so so narration, couldn't wait for it to end.
Massively intricate world with well developed characters.
That's impossible, at least for me.
This series has a lot of characters that are hard to keep straight at first. I've read the book twice before getting the audio version so I knew who was who.
The logistics of living in a world without
Well paced story and interesting characters.
One of the better
The description of what happens to the elderly in the nursing home.
Definately worth listening/reading. A little preachy and right-wing politically, but overall a good book.
The detail about the terrain in Utah and New Mexico.
Fast paced story with a climatic finish.
Preston and Child write excellent books.
Possibly, though reading a book will always be better for me.
Unraveling the mystery of what's hidden in the island.
Preston and Child are great at incorporating historical elements into mysteries and creating believable plots.
Overall I thought the story was good. What irritated me was the lead female character being represented as emotionally weak at times even though the character is a world class rock climber.
No, it's long but the details and story elements are necessary.
Read them, this is the first I've listened to.
