It may be that the Artemis Fowl books were SO amazing that I expected too much. It may have been John Keating's reading. I haven't heard him read before but it wasn't the greatest. The story lacked the adventure of the Artemis Series and the characters felt less developed... I actually got a strong overtone of a children's version of The Count of Monte Cristo, but The Count was better.
I have this strange interest in the Mormon Faith. I was raised Christian and my mind boggles at how different the beliefs are from what I was taught. I have moved away from my religion as I've grown older and love to read about the other denominations of the Christian Faith that I wasn't exposed to. The writing and reading was just top notch with this one. I would recommend it to anyone. My fiance doesn't like listening to audiobooks so I bought her a hardcopy just so she would read it too. I am definitely going to look into other Krakauer books and anything read by Scott Brick.
