    (75)

    Eccentric Sunset Tuttle spent his life searching in vain for forms of alien life. Thirty years after his death, a stone tablet inscribed with cryptic, indecipherable symbols is found in the possession of Tuttle's onetime lover, and antiquities dealer Alex Benedict is anxious to discover what secret the tablet holds. It could be proof that Tuttle had found what he was looking for.

    Jeff Tingle says: "Better than the last version"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, this is fifth book in the series and they switched the narrator. I was really unhappy with this decision and the new narrator. I went through because the next book, the final in the series, has the old narrator.


    What other book might you compare Echo to and why?

    Polaris, another Jack McDevitt book with a good story like this one but a better narrator.


    What didn’t you like about Coleen Marlo’s performance?

    Coleen is no Chase(a main character) and she has a tendency to make all the characters sound annoying or weak or pathetic. It really ruined the book for me. I even went looking for a different version of the audiobook but didn't find one.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I listen in the car, while doing dishes or cleaning house and sometimes on my lunch break.


    Any additional comments?

    To all people responsible for getting audiobooks recorded: Please Please Please do not change the narrator in the middle of a series. It really ruined this series and book for me.
