Relic and Reliquary are two excellent modern/sci-fi thriller books; and Pentergast is a wonderful character. The only reason I'm giving this book such a low rating is the narrator.
The Narration in Relic was great, you could identify the characters easily. Margo was light, Pentergast had the southern drawl, Frock was rather huffy, Smithback fun and sarcastic, and DaGosta was gruff.
This new narrator throws that all out. Smithback sounds nasally and whiny not sarcastic at all. DaGosta lost his gruffness. I just couldn't continue and read the book instead. Like others I'll have to stay away from Dick Hill narrated books.
