Yes, it was fast-paced and kept adding twists and turns to keep things moving and kept my interest throughout.
His pace, accent and presentation make the book come alive.
Would recommend this book for light reading!
Someone who's really into science fiction might enjoy this book. It feels like the author had no plan or outline to follow in writing this book, and made things up as he went along. It was choppy, lacked cohesiveness, and was difficult to follow.
Disappointment that I bought it.
A waste if time.
The narrators captured the pace and correct presentation and made this a great ride!
The accents were wonderful!
Tragic historical account.
Several books written about the Holocaust come to mind...
I wouldn't say "favorite" is the right word; possibly, moving or blatently honest would be more correct. There were too many scenes of that caliber, but I might say the scene in Siberia where the Russian officer comes to their aid, is one of them.
See last comment.
This book should be required high school reading, or college, at the very least! Why hasn't Oprah reviewed this one!!???
The story wandered about so much and was not cogently assembled that I found it irritating to listen to...the narrator didn't help much either.
Lack of cohesiveness and strong characters.
I wish I could tell you that...
No particular scene stands out -- one reason I supposed I disliked it!
Please take it back!!!
Scott Brick's presentation of this well-written, fast-moving book is terrific, as usual! The book was so well written that my interest never lagged and the story was very explicit in so many details that it seemed very plausible.
The ending, where the heros of the book come to realize the actual meaning of the buried "treasure."
With Mr. Brick's reading, I am able to sit back and let the events wash over me and just listen as if I were on site, experiencing the whole thing.
Only insofar as encouraging the realization that we probably aren't alone in the universe!
I was, once again, pleased that I had chosen a book read by Mr. Brick; he is excellent!
Still listening -- very long book, but the main narrator, Scott Brick, is excellent and makes the length bearable!
None to compare with...
Voice inflection and ability to make it through a book of this length because I can listen in my car or while doing chores!
Not finished yet, but no, so far.
I was disappointed when I was listening to one of the parts narrated by Abby Craden, to find out that "parts were missing or unintelligible" (part of the novel - not actually missing, but at first I wasn't sure!)...felt like I was cheated out of that part of the book.
Well spent only in that we were driving on a long trip and had nothing else to listen to.
I would partially recommend it...definitely not his best work.
None stick out...
