    "Great Pendergast short story, don't use a credit"

    Typically convoluted and fascinating Pendergast short story--great for Halloween or around a campfire. Pay the small price, but don't use a credit, as it is so short. But definitely worth getting!

    "Meh, short storie"
    Would you try another book from Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child and/or Rene Auberjonois?

    Yes, kinda addicted to this series.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Okay, for a short story, how far can you go in a short time, make sure you've listended to other Pendergast stuff otherwise you wont know the characters.


    What does Rene Auberjonois bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good speaking voice, like listening to an old friend tell a good story


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably not, too short

    "Non-Story"
    What disappointed you about Extraction?

    I double and triple checked to make sure I had not somehow neglected to add the final chapters of this short story.

    Calling it a story is an exaggeration since it was at most a snippet of a story. When it abruptly ended I was very surprised since it was such a non-story.

    Even at this reduced price this is a rip-off.


    What was most disappointing about Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child ’s story?

    It's length

    Story
    "Don't waste your money"

    I LOVE the Pendergast character, but this is so short and so shallow it is a total waste of time. First, the narration ends a full twenty minutes before the recording does, so the story itself is less than 40 minutes long; its a cheesy trick to sell this as an hour plus recording of a short story. Second, the plot and storyline are so facile, its hard to believe it is written by the same people who wrote RELIC, RELIQUARY, etc. I bought this to tide me over until the next book, but there was nothing there. Nothing.

    Story
    "Always believe in the Tooth Fairy or else"
    Has Extraction turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I love the Agent Pendergast books, but this short story was a little different from the other books and for some reason bothered me. I found it a little too gruesome. Maybe a part of Agent Pendergast's childhood we didn't really need to hear about.


    Any additional comments?

    The short story actually only took up about 45 minutes or so of the audio. The last 15 minutes or so were an excerpt from another book. Since it didn't really tell you which one it had no real redeeming value to being added, although it was interesting. All you could glean from it was Pendergast trying to find his wife Helen and what was happening to Helen at the time.

    "Pendergast teaser"

    While I hunger for more Agent Pendergast this was a little predictable. The narrator was excellent and the story fair.

    "Thank you Preston and child"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes of course!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It solves a mystery all Pendergas fans have wondered about.


    Have you listened to any of Rene Auberjonois’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Wonderful story telling... I love his honeyed voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I didn't realize that this story actually tells the reader what we have always wanted to know.
    I loved it.

    Story
    "Grabbed Me Immediately"
    Where does Extraction rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It is right up,there with other detective stories. It was too,short but I knew it was a short story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really but it wasn't a mystery it was like a ghost story from his childhood. Pendergast is telling a scary story to his protege. It was good.


    What about Rene Auberjonois’s performance did you like?

    I always like Rene's performance as Pendergast. His voice is Pendergast. He has the drawl and the superior attitude down perfectly.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Nothing extreme. I just found it a very nice story.

    "Good short story"
    Would you listen to Extraction again? Why?

    Yes. It gives, as in the other Pendergast books, a detailed description of atmosphere and setting; the things I like in a story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    An interesting and somewhat gory alternative to the tooth fairy. And it has Pendergast in it.


    What does Rene Auberjonois bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He always brings an erie atmosphere to the Pendergast stories. The voices of Pendergast and Constance are really well performed and grasp your attention. I truly appreciate his narration.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, not really. The scene where young Pendergast is in the Dufour house with his father is a bit scary though. And Pendergast having been a real bully to his younger brother and realizing it later was remarkable.


    Any additional comments?

    Truly recommend this story. Pay for it, spend no credit.
