    Fatima, Portugal, 1917: The Virgin Mary appears to three peasant children, sharing with them three secrets, two of which are soon revealed to the world. The third secret is sealed away in the Vatican, read only by popes, and not disclosed until the year 2000. When revealed, its quizzical tone and anticlimactic nature leave many faithful wondering if the Church has truly unveiled all of the Virgin Mary's words, or if a message far more important has been left in the shadows.

    "My first and last Steve Berry Book"
    Overall

    I like to read several books by an author and get to know their style and flavor. One Steve Berry is one too many.

    I really enjoyed The Third Secret until it revealed the missing part of that secret. Then I realized that what had been something of a glittering box of a story contained a lame, unimaginative nugget inside. After hearing that part, I just turned it off and went on to my next listen without even finishing the story. Just think about all the controversial topics within today's Catholic Church, pick the position opposite the Church, and that's The Third Secret. The conservatives are bad guys who kill people? C'mon, Steve, get a life (and some imagination)!

    Fifteen-year-old Christopher Boone has Asperger's Syndrome, a condition similar to autism. He doesn't like to be touched or meet new people, he cannot make small talk, and he hates the colors brown and yellow. He is a math whiz with a very logical brain who loves solving puzzles that have definite answers.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    What is the point? Christopher makes a trip by himself with some mishaps along the way? Maybe this is significant from his perspective, but hardly worth the time to listen to the book. Obviously, I expected more.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Mark Haddon again?

    Probably not.


    Have you listened to any of Jeff Woodman???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is my first listen from Jeff Woodman.


    Was The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time worth the listening time?

    No. Beyond gleaning some insights on a day in the life of an autistic person from their perspective.
