    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    It's an OK listen if you need to fill the time. Some of it quite interesting but it went on for way too long.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Liked the camaraderie and the action and back story. The story really didn't need all the crab robots-overdone and silly.


    What three words best describe Peter Jay Fernandez’s performance?

    Easy listening voice


    Was Bloodline worth the listening time?

    Yes, but only once.


    Any additional comments?

    Please ask folks who must read medical terms to seek the proper usage. It hurts my head when they don't. C-P-A-P is not ever used as individual letters. It's C-PAP. Any one using a CPAP machine for sleep apnea or medical personnel as in this case neonatal staff, will catch it and wince. Trust me, that's a large audience.

    Jack is hired to find a legendary Japanese sword, a katana stolen from the Hiroshima Peace Museum and brought to New York City. Central characters include the members of a weird Japanese cult, a young Japanese businessman (who is the brother of a character killed in Legacies) and his three Yakuza bodyguards, plus Hank Thompson, the Kicker cult leader from Bloodline. The cult, the businessman, the Yakuza, and the Kickers are looking for the sword as well.

    Story
    What disappointed you about By the Sword?

    The mechanics of the story are preposterous. Dropping a crucifix by parachute with a man nailed to it and a reporter can see him open and close his eyes as he descends. Really now!


    What was most disappointing about F. Paul Wilson???s story?

    The female character is supposed to be strong enough in her commitment to her profession so as to prove her worth to her father. For pity sakes woman, stop your whining. She has little to say that is not self pitying and not whining.


    What about Dick Hill???s performance did you like?

    Dick Hill is a fine performer especially when he is given a decent story line to work with.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    My iPhone did not fully download part 2 and I really didn't care. I didn't go back to remedy this again because I really just didn't care.

    Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

    Noreen says: "Another great story"
    "Not the best Clive Cussler"
    Overall

    I've listened to most of the Cusslers available multiple times and this is not his best. I have a good and forgiving imagination and The Jungle stretches it too far. The narrator does not bring out the best either. I find myself more forgiving of mispronunciations if the narrator is good. It is cann U la not can noo la for cannula. Please bring back Scott Brick.

    Following the death of her beloved detective spouse Danny in the line of duty, cop Vicky Langford left the Westport police force to become a crime reporter for the Herald. She always felt crime king Richard Blackwell killed her husband and wounded his partner, who since recovered. At a murder scene, Vicky meets the newest detective Jim McCann, a former Seattle cop who directs her to leave as reporters are not wanted at the crime scene (or anywhere else).

    Overall

    Why pray tell, must we have Scarpaci's heroine be so whiny and do things without thought of consequences? Women are stronger and smarter than this.I'd like a real woman who doesn't whine.
