The story takes you from the heart of England to the sands of Egypt in one glorious adventure that one can NOT soon forget…. From General Gordon in Khartoum --- three daughters and three men escorted me through horrors of battles & torture to adventure & adoration…. What else could be the bases of a Splendid Story?
It seemed like the same old refrain --- corruption in the government/military/CIA/FBI. However, "our heroes" will come through no matter what happens or what comes in their way!?!
It was nice to have a male/female voices. The male voice did not seem to make very much of a distinction between male characters when no first/last names were involved.
I usually rate Mr Baldacci's book much higher but other might enjoy this one! However, I did not!!
There is NO sense worrying because every thing will GO WRONG for us!!! This should be the main theme in this story.... Because it does in triplicate!
Do NOT give up! Hang in there --- YOU MIGHT ENJOY THIS chronicle...!!
In listening to this story I felt like I was walking through a deep marsh in heavy (large) boots!
It is my hope others might like it but --- "one must have a lot of patients" & don't mind hearing the same/similarly happenings again and again and again ... !" Well you get the idea!
As a former US Navy personnel for a few years this story had some unconventional situations. For example the ..."the Executive Officer...telling the Admiral not to go up to the bridge, of the carrier, to stay 'below' decks where it's safe" is just ludicrous! There were several other type of "commands" that are unreal to the US Navy jargon that made me wish that author looked for Navy help.
Giving 30 days leave in a alien situation is preposterous! The Admiral sure have been having an "off" day!!
The story just could NOT be realistic--- maybe even fare fetched!!!! Maybe the author meant it to be just that ---- UNREALISTIC??
Mr Guidall was very good but there were long periods of dialog where it started with no point and ended with no point. I got very tired of the very long dialog that seemed pointless and endless. It took away from the story.It got to a point where I didn't care what happened to the English Girl!
This book was one I could NOT put down --- stop listening to! The reader was great. Several parts of the story kept me "hanging with "...what happened?" This is my first listen to one of Robert Crais tales ... I LOOK FROWARD TO MORE...!!!
I enjoying Mr Brown's books but this one I just could not get a hold of this one!! Try as I might --- starting over three times from the being did NOT help me!!!
Sorry for the bad rating for a Dan Brown book but for me this one did not GRAB ME!!!
Could not finish the story!! It is/was sooooo depressing to me that I had to stop listening...!
Perhaps it might have improved had I stayed with it longer. But I didn't have the "guts" --- to do so!!!!
Very suspenseful! Particularly in the last part of the STORY!!
I would have to say the long details, at times, was a bit TO MUCH!
WELL WORTH THE LISTENING!!!!
It seems that listening to Mr. Cusslers books one must be prepared to hear of some great feats by the main characters or situations. This book requires a giant imagination of both! I have listened to many of Clive's books and have thoroughly almost almost all...! This one I really must give just an "OK"....
