Publisher's Summary

In The Eye of God, a Sigma Force novel, New York Times best-selling author James Rollins delivers an apocalyptic vision of a future predicted by the distant past.

In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy...and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin.

At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long-dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.

Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force set out to discover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery going back to the birth of Christianity, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.

    "Good story, bad performance."

    I finished it. The story was good and a good addition to the series. The performance was pretty bad, but only because of the various accents attempted. Some characters went from Asian to Hispanic and back again between scenes. I blame whoever made the decision to change up narrators.

    A great story and a great performance. I have always thoroughly enjoyed the Sigma Force novels and this one was no different.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Narrator


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    He used the same voice for Italian characters as Asian characters. Was difficult to follow who was speaking. Was even difficult to separate male and female voices, had to rewind frequently.


    Any additional comments?

    This narrator is on the remaining Sigma Series books. I just can't listen to him again. I will purchase the book instead of the audio.

    "Narrator....."

    This story was fine, maybe not as to the edge as some of the previous novels. What put me off was the narrator, who at times represented the characters in such a contrived manner, that he actually diminished the story for me.

    "Great story, horrible narrator."

    Not sure why they continue to hire Christian Baskus for this series. Intriguing story, classic James Rollins. Painful to listen to, however. Inconsistent accents and boy things, names pronounced differently than in previous Rollins audio books. Would much prefer to hear this read by Peter J Fernandez, who has well established specific voices and accents for each character in the series.

    "Christian Baskous is a horrible voice reader/actor"
    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christian Baskous?

    Christian Baskous

    His intonation, timing, accents and lack of understanding of general cadence of speech is appalling. Anyone else would have been better.

    "Disappointing"
    Would you try another book from James Rollins and/or Christian Baskous?

    I was disappointed with the change in narrator in this series. Christian Baskous can't do the accents very well and the changes he made in the character voices were not for the better


    What was most disappointing about James Rollins’s story?

    This story was too unbelievable. While I understood where he was headed, it was unrealistic to think that the US would not contact the REST OF THE WORLD if they truly believed that the earth was going to end in 4 days. Seriously.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Christian Baskous’s performances?

    NO

    "Interesting story; TERRIBLE narrator!!"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    None stood out.


    What didn’t you like about Christian Baskous’s performance?

    He has very little ability to give each character her/his own voice. All accents sound essentially the same, so it's hard to keep track of who is talking. His narrator voice sounds disbelieving at inopportune moments. I don't understand how a publisher of audio books could possibly think he can pass muster!


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

    No. I don't like most movies.

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

    Not sure who would enjoy it. The story line was almost nonsensical.


    What was most disappointing about James Rollins’s story?

    Seemed disjointed and the characters that were new to me, such as Duncan and Jada, were inadequately developed.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narration was a great distraction to the overall story. The narrator's voices for the women were comical, the various accents, i.e. Italian and Chinese, were laughable. I found the narration hard to overcome in order to find the listening experience enjoyable. I tried increasing the speed of the narration but that didn't take care of the issue, though it did accomplish getting me to the end of the story sooner.


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

    None.
