Of course i will continue to read his work since there have been so many i enjoyed.
I'm a fan of the Sigma series and realize fiction is fiction, but this book is just rediculous. A great thing happens with Grey in the book, but that's about all that is good in this book. I'm glad I did not read this one first. The book reader of this book sucks too.
I was expecting a narrator like the previous books. please don't change a narrator. Let them finish the series.
Could not finish the book. The performance was so awful i could not focus on the story. the accents were the worst... borderline offensive. i also struggled with the similarity between the narrator's voice and that of The Brain (Animaniacs cartoon character extra).
The Eye of God was a good story but it was ruined my the Narrator Christian Baskous. So many times I just was done listening to his bad characters accents. In what world do you get a director of a government agency as important as Sigma with such a bad stereo typical southwest Native American accent when the characters tribe is from the Northeast. Not to mention the terrible Italian and Asian characters.
Bring back Peter
Why kill off Racheal and her uncle? This was pointless. I get you wanted to play with an alternate universe that they are living happy and that time can bend, but it could have been done way better. Maybe with a window that allowed Gray to see his mother alive and happy at the time the two energies were countering each other out.
I enjoy Rollins characters; they are folks I could invite home and I miss them when the book's over. Story line is creative with a foot in facts with a good measure of fantasy.
The narrator in this book took a few hours to get used to. He tried too hard to do foreign accents so most foreigners sounded like they were Asian but raised in Italy. He improved toward the end or I got accustomed to him.
Love the books!!! Dislike the narrator. He is hard to listen to. I lost focus many times as he was slow to speak and very monotone.
Yes. I have been a big fan of the series since the first book. This one carried on with shifting locals, new characters blending with those we know, really bad villains, interesting historical connections.
Father Vigor, full of purpose even facing personal tragedy.
The seal coming to rescue Jada.
Have no idea about these things.
I do not understand all the bad reviews about the narration. I had no problem staying with the story and did not feel distracted in the least. I'll have no problem listening to other books with the same narrator. I hope some people did not decide not to get this book because of those reviews because they missed a really good story.
