Yes i Would recommend this book to a friend it was a good read and well worth it.
The most memorable moment from the book was the battle at the German village at the beginning of the book. It sets the stage for the type of people the characters are.
Both Cato and Macro were were my favorite characters.
This is a good book that was well worth listening to. The only problem I had with it was that there are scenes and twists in the story that don't have anything else to do with anything. Like the part where Cato gets caught in the tent with the thief, why did he need to be there when he couldn't identify the thief in the dark? It was pointless and 15 minutes worth of listening that didn't add any significance to the book. I did like the story line though and would like to see the second book "Conquest" get put on Audible in English rather than Latin (I think its in Latin at least).
No there are to many other books I haven't read or listened to yet.
SPOILER ALERT: The most interesting aspect was that they were hunting for the tomb of Atilla the Hun and after finding treasure cashes and clues all over Europe and Asia he winds up being buried in the Roman catacombs behind a false wall.
The least interesting aspect was that the bad guys in the book are about as smart and scary as 1st graders and their henchmen are even worse, and then the Fargos are like Einstein in comparison. Then they wait till the very end for the Fargos and the bad guys to have a shoot out .... IN CALIFORNIA AFTER THEY FOUND THE TREASURE AND PUT IT IN MUSEUMS. Just when i thought it was over there were four more chapters that were completely pointless.
He needs to put a little more enthusiasm into the characters the way he read it made it seem like the characters were bored all the time
Absolutely not as it was it took me most of a month to get through it.
This is the second Fargo Adventure I've listened to and the other one wasn't any better. Its kind of a mix between romance, adventure and mystery that failed miserably, and should be covered in bacon and thrown into a kennel full of trained German Sheppard attack dogs.
The story line
This is a good book that made a long drive bearable. The plot is good as well as the characters. The only thing i would change is the Narrator, the guy is very mono-toned and doesn't really put any effort into differentiating between characters.
