I am often critical of the many audio books I have listened to over the years.... critical in the negative sense. So my praise of this story and author is significant for myself if no one else.
The story was very intricately woven into a very believable suspense yarn. The "weaving" of anthropological myths or truths was very appealing and gave substance to the story.
I unequivocally state that it gave me as much enjoyment as the Da Vinci Code and believe we will see the story in cinematic format. I would encourage all to enjoy this most excellent read.... listen.
P.S.- I enjoyed the narrator and thought she did a very good job!
This is my 4th Hiassen book and definitely the worst. I would not waste your time with this won. I had to force myself to listen through the end.... I should know better... this isn't like forcing yourself to exercise, in that there is always benefit... a book should always invite you back and this one didn't.
A beautifully written novel demonstrating what I perceive as the grace of the written(spoken) word on an inviting mind. A very relaxing read. I cannot recommend it more highly and look forward to a prolific career for Ms. Setterfield.
Absolutely terrible ending that is contradictory to facts detailed earlier in Patterson's story. The twist at the end was unnecessary and a betrayal of character development.... Mr. Patterson.... your readers, I believe, are not this stupid!
I loved the book.... ok, the ending is a tiny weak but I got what I was looking for in a big way and would, and have recommended this book to anyone who enjoys strange characters and lots of laughs.
Well narrated. Otherwise, I felt it an old, big brother Orwellian theme with a contrived storyline that was shades of Matrix/ The DaVinci File. I have liked almost all books read since joining Audible almost two years ago and have never written a review.... but this book wasted my time and I doubt it or the two subsequent books of this apparent trilogy will be worth yours. Mr. Twelvehawks should stay off the "grid"..... i.e. he should't cash his paychecks except for medical treatment of his terminal paranoia.
