Probably someone who is NOT an Alex Cross fan....or has never read a book in the series.
The last 2 chapters.....I probably would not have been so upset if I read the reviews before I listened to it. This is the first time I have ever stopped a book near the end and looked up reviews. There were 2,999, all Patterson fans, who were as upset and disappointed as I was.....I feel like I was listening to an old Radio Weekly Mystery Series "tune in next week(book) for the conclusion"...with the Million of Cross Series fans, most who preorder, was it really necessary to leave us hanging?? Really????
Need I say more???
Yes. I enjoy fantasy fiction. I also love the woods, and nature.....what an amazing find for me. Listening helps me to escape the everyday problems.
When I realized characters from children's fairy tales were integrated into the story...it was a wonderful surprise. I hadn't thought of those stories for years!
No I never listened to her before. Actually I looked for other titles she narrated and I don't think they are for me. I think some of the reviewers were harsh. Some voices were beautiful and fit the characters. I always think it is difficult for any man or woman reader, to do the opposite sex. I have actually stopped listening to several books because the narration was really irritating to listen to. I think she did a good job.
No, but I did find myself wanting to listen more and more. It did make me smile a lot,
I truly enjoyed this book. It is not Watership Down, but I found it more interesting then "The Bees"! The fact that I am taking time to write a review, means that I liked it!,,, I listen to a lot of audiobooks and don't always take the time to write a review.
I love this narrator so much. I have difficulty with remembering/separating some of the French names of characters, so I found myself having to replay some parts near the end.
I am now fascinated about the drawings found in the French caves and will have to look that up for more details. I love how the characters in 3 Pines are developing!
I would never be able to enjoy READING this book, because I would spend too much time in my head trying to say the names. I only found this series because I looked up everything R. Cosham has narrated.....his voice and the fluidity...what can I say! Now I am obsessed and can't wait to start the next one in the series...thank you Mr. Cosham!
Yes I want to go to 3 Pines......it's like when I listen to him read Watership Down, I become a rabbit!
Interesting art history!
I liked the historical facts about great masters and how they were painted over so they could get out of Italy...very interesting detail. It reminded me of Dan Brown books!
I didn't know this author's work, I only ordered it because it was read by Ralph Cosham!
Fortunately I enjoyed the story as well!
I only ordered it because of the reader! I fell in love with his voice when listening to Watership Down (one of my favorite books of all time). I also just finished listening to him read "Return of Sherlock Holmes"...I think he could read the back of a cereal box and make it sound fascinating! I am about to start "Still Life". Again I never heard of this author but ordered it because Ralph Cosham is the reader!
I Wish I Could Find More Books Read by Him!
I love Sherlock Holmes....have read and reread for years. Even enjoy the newer tv versions...I know every story by heart, BUT it is Ralph Cosham's voice which makes this so awesome.
I already know every story!
I love his British accent and you can still understand every word! I am an avid audio book listener so the reader is important to me! Instead of looking for books by my favorite authors, I have been searching and listening to anything that lists him as the reader, unfortunately I wish there were many more :(
See above ;)
This audio book is at the top of my list. I have loved this book since I first read it many moons ago. Ralph Cosham is a wonderful reader! I will be downloading other books he has narrated. This book is a must have!
Some of the names are difficult to read or pronounce...he makes it flow so smoothly...you feel like you are right there and his voice is so soothing!
A movie could never give it justice, I believe a director/producer/screenwriter would take away the true feeling that reading and listening to this book gives you!
I am certain the author would be thrilled with this reader, just as his children were when he told it to them!

Historical references from early civilization to modern day. Pleasant blend but not gory. Just the right amount of suspense.
Sarah bishop and Isabel..
Yes..luckily it was long and got me through one week without power after hurricane Sandy.
I have already downloaded the second book of the series
I have never been into history books, but this was so interesting. Of course O'Reilly is a great reader/speaker so listening to the audio was easy.
Refreshing..enjoyable. Not the usual David Baldacci suspense novel.(no spies or killing) .It's a feel good, perfect holiday listen to lift your spirits. I listen to it on long drives or when I am baking for the holidays. It truly is my favorite audio book of all time. I love Baldacci, Patterson and old Patricia Cornwall Scrarpetta suspense/mystery books. Tim Matheson's narration is great.Just wish Baldacci would write another one...
