Publisher's Summary

A power that could destroy the world

A prize that men will kill to possess

Juan Cabrillo must find it first....

Two opposing groups seek a 50,000-year-old radioactive meteorite known as the Sacred Stone. Muslim extremists have stolen a nuclear device and need the stone to give them the power to vaporize any city in the west. A megalomaniacal industrialist leads a group seeking to carry out the utter annihilation of Islam itself. And caught between the two militant factions is Juan Cabrillo and his crew, who must do whatever they can to stop the impending doom....

    Story
    "Poor Narration"
    What would have made Sacred Stone better?

    A different narrator would have enhanced this listening experience. Scott Brick is so much better. I would have ennjoyed this book if he had been the narrator.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Some words were mispronounced. Vocal inflection was very distracting.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Clive Cussler is my favorite author. His stories are always a good read.


    Any additional comments?

    Scott Brick is so much better. His narration would have made this a good listen.

    Story
    "Mangled"

    I've read most every Cussler book and listened to his audible versions for the last five years or so. The Oregon Files series being the most exciting to me. How this version got past quality control is beyond me. It's as if they contractually had to release an audible version and gave us a purposely stilted and poorly performed book as an F You to some lawyer some where. Even if the producer or editor were inept I can't believe the narrator agreed to continue. To me this would be a career ender. The story is cheesy and full of cliches like most C.C.'s books but my God, the delivery. Aghhh!

    "Not like books 3 onward"

    I really like the series and look forward to new books. I started at book 3 since earlier books were not available until the last month. I did not like the narrator at all and found it hard to finish. The story occurs almost totally off the Oregon which is the focal point of the story lines going forward. I am very happy I started at book 3 as if I had started with1 or 2, I would not have purchased others.

    Story
    "Not Cussler's best - if he really wrote it"
    What disappointed you about Sacred Stone?

    The narrator's voice is not in fitting with the type of characters and the efforts to create different voices for different characters is so poor that is makes you uncomfortable to listen to it. The character from Arizona has a Texas-sounding accent. None of our Oregon heroes sound tough and smart anymore. The story lacks Cussler's customary zing and wittiness. I have read an listened to many many Cussler books and would rate every one of them a 5 in all respects; however, I had to stop listening to this one half way through. I just couldn't take it. You get none of the traditional Cussler suspense and constant sense of action. I question whether he even wrote it.


    Has Sacred Stone turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of J. Charles?

    Scott Brick or anyone with a tougher sound. Our heroes sound like school teachers or something. Much to soft for characters of this type.


    What character would you cut from Sacred Stone?

    the retired author - that was lame. That is one of the things, other than the poor quality of the story, that makes me think Cussler didn't write this.

    "Worst Narration Ever!"

    Great story overall, but I nearly stopped listening each time the narrator attempted to give inappropriate dialect to the minority characters! Simply the worst narration of my considerable audible listening career!

    "The reader ruined the book"

    Love Clive Cussler book, but we will never listen to this reader ever again!!!!! My husband asked, "how bad could he be?" Yes! He's that bad. You never can tell who is speaking as he never uses the same voice tone for a character, so he leaves you guessing as to whom is talking or telling the story. Horrible!!!

    "What happened CC?"

    I've listened to many of CC's books and read a few. This book was not by CC. It lacked the swagger and the personalities were different or came across so. Missed Scott Brick a lot. It felt like CC's name was sold to another author. Disappointed.

    "Sacred stone"

    Liked the story. Did not like the sound effects nor the narrator. He sounded to matter of fact like a college professor 😞

    "Narrator"

    I thought the narrator was terrible.
    The story did not follow the normal story. He only called the head guy the Chairman once.

    "Narration is slightly above terrible!"

    I have listened to nearly every Cussler book and the narration on by J. Charles is really not very good. I love listening to Scott Brick. Having Charles for a narrator is a deal breaker for me. I won't be listening to any more books narrated by him.

    I walk 5 miles daily and listen to audiobooks while walking. This book was a struggle to listen to because of the narration.
