    The dazzling new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from the grand master of adventure. It is called zero point energy - a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever found a way to tap into it, however - until one scientist discovers a way. The problem is, his machines also cause great earthquakes. If Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala and the rest of the NUMA team aren't able to find and destroy them, and soon, the world will be on the threshold of a new era of earth tremors and unchecked volcanism.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I found this book unsatisfying . The stories was superficial simplistic & predictable . Also as an Australian I found the readers attempts at an Australian ascent truly horrible . It got to the point that I just could not keep listening . Why don't these readers listen to some real Australian ascents .Does Russell Crow or Nichole Kidman sound like this?? It was a cross between Michel Cain & Dick Van Dike in Mary Poppins ??? This reading was horrible & if I may say as an Australian insulting .


    What was most disappointing about Clive Cussler and Graham Brown ’s story?

    It was predictable & the attempt at an Australian ascent was horrible .


    Would you be willing to try another one of Scott Brick’s performances?

    He was OK when reading in his own voice but listen to some real Australians before attempting the ascent again .


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

    Disappointment .


    Any additional comments?

    Please if there are Australian characters in future readings work at getting the ascent right . Imagine if you were listening to an Englishman doing a reading & every American character sounded like Gommer Pile ! That is how this reading came across to me.

    THINK Critically is a cutting-edge self-reflective guide for improving critical thinking skills through careful analysis, reasoned inference and thoughtful evaluation of contemporary culture and ideas. Taking cues from everyday life -- education, business, health sciences, social work, law, government policy issues and current events -- THINK Critically bridges the principles of critical thinking with real-world application.

    The subject matter of this audio book may be very good. However I will never know. The reading is so awful. Really awful!! The reading is flat & mechanical. I could not get past the first chapter. Also the book downloaded in each individual chapter; not as a whole book. If I were the author I???d be very upset about the whole presentation. I have purchased many audio books from Audible & this one falls very well short of the usual quality I have grown to expect. Don???t waste your money on this one.
