A company is just on the verge of perfecting something that was thought to be impossible -- recording dreams. When they stumble across a hidden message in certain recordings. Not knowing where to turn next, she enlists the help of some of her close friends to figure out what these hidden messages are actually trying to tell her.
The narration for The Amazon Code was done by Mike Vendetti, who has done numerous other Nick Thacker audiobooks. They work together for a reason and it shows. Vendetti is able to take Thackers words and make them jump off of the page. Sure, it's not "full cast" ensemble recording or anything, but Vendetti really does help Thacker's work go from good to great.
I'm thrilled to see more from Harvey Bennett. I really liked him as a character in The Enigma Strain (which I LOVED by the way). And I'm glad to see him back in a slightly different take on a story.
Thacker is one of my all-time favorite authors. Everything he comes out with has been well received by me, and with good reason. He knows how to write amazingly thought out fast-paced thrillers.
Overall, The Amazon Code was incredibly enjoyable. The action was fast-paced, and the story flowed really well. It was definitely a roller coaster climbing towards the climax. The final pages/minutes of the book just flew by as I tried to figure out what was going to happen. I love a book that can do that without leaving me feeling unsatisfied.

I loved this book! It's exciting, unpredictable and an incredible version of the Lost City of Gold. The characters are fleshed out and you can really relate to both the good guys and most of the bad guys. Excellent follow up to Enigma Strain. I'll continue to follow Mr. Thacker. I think the comparison to James Rollins is apt. The only downside to the book was the narration. Mr. Vendetti didn't throw me completely out of the book, but it was annoying. It sounded like he was reading the story for the first time and had no idea when to take a breathe. I was working in my yard raking leaves, so I didn't have the option to switch back to the book, so I stayed with it. But when I was able, I switched off the narration. I am not a fan of Mr. Vendetti's narration and will try to avoid his books in the future.
I guess I am the o e person that did not like this book. It was boring and plot was ssooo slow.
Boring voice, reading with no emotion.
I tried to like this, but half way through I gave up.
