Rene Auberjonois' glorious narration. he truly captures Pendergast's honeyed drawl and sharp wit.
a volcano? didnt see that coming...
Agent Pendergast of course!
i nearly did. two sittings.....not much laundry was done that day.
I couldn't even finish. I still have just under 3 hours left and I won't be spending that time with this book. I was a fan of the Atlantis trilogy and was eager to get my hands on this but it was a watered down ripoff of wayward pines and every other generic sci-fi premise novel. I will not ruin the plot for others if they still choose to read. I simply was not drawn in and by the time the climax was starting I was completely bored and slightly miffed at the obviousness of the plot. sorry. audible and I are usually good partners. this one was a dud for me. I hope Riddle will continue writing and maybe this is just one that didn't send me.
yes! i thoroughly enjoyed the concept and as the story progressed i got so immersed i had to bring it in from the car to continue listening. if you are a fan of lovecraft, you are going to like this.
i wouldnt want to ruin anything...
its my second favorite book of all time, and as far as audio version goes, definitely in my top five.
i wouldnt want to spoil it for new listeners. i do have my very own rearden metal bracelet though...
scott brick is an excellent narrator, but i find him to be rather slow sometimes, so i love the function on the audible app that allows you to speed up the narrator. i usually listen at 1.5 times normal speed, so it doesnt go slow like ben stein...bueller? bueller?
if the weight of the world was on your shoulders, wouldnt you shrug?
this is a fantastic novel full of epic idealized characters. these are archetypes of heroic figures we should strive to be like. the philosophy embedded in the novel is something that desperately needs to be examined and put into practice for the real world. there are real world current issues that mirror a book a russian immigrant wrote over fifty years ago. it was prophetic then and coming true now. its an excellent novel at face value, but the deeper meaning is intriguing as well.
yes. to see if there were clues i missed as to the ending
vengeance and money are powerful motivators
the rizzoli and isles series gets better and better with each subsequent book as far as keeping me guessing to the very end. i just never figure it out before tess gerritsen wants it revealed. i thank her for this.
alan cumming is a wonderful narrator for sherlock holmes. this story was made all the more engaging because of this
when the gem was discovered....no spoilers
even at christmas, sherlock must solve a case before dinner
3rd of all time
no compare for me
I will listen to anything he narrates, and i have so far....he is wonderful as Pendergast, as always.
When Pendergast saves Cora from small town life and gives her the opportunity to make something of herself....makes me cry everytime!
another hit out of the park for Preston, Child, Auberjonois and Pendergast himself
in my top 25, I love too many long series....but it would make my list no matter what
wouldnt want to spoil it for the rest of you...
i did, twice!
I cant say too much, it would ruin the surprise. it is worth a listen and get over the readers voice, by the end you will understand her vocal choices...
this is the 3rd in the Pendergast series, but by far one of my favorite novels of all time! the abridged version is still wonderful and the reader Auberjonois is amazing!!!!!! he is the best pendergast by far. i will give scott brick his due, but Rene IS Pendergast. When I get people involved in the Pendergast series, this is the book i start them with. it is mesmerizing and just as good with every subsequent listen. as the series has continued, i keep finding new clues and info with each additional listen. it truly is a gift that keeps on giving!
His command of the language and speech patterns and his delightful inflections as Agent Pendergast are just amazing. i will buy anything read by Mr. Auberjonois
I just love this book. the characters, the storyline, the old new york history blended with fiction...the moral compass of Pendergast and the choices he makes. a modern day Holmes, but better!
this is a very well produced audio-novel with plenty of exciting bits and lots of great character voices. the story itself is a tad lacking, but if you are just looking for a lighthearted mystery adventure story with a bit of Dracula mythos thrown in for good measure, then you will adore this.
the road less traveled is not all it seems
