    "Best Fargo Book ever!!!"
    If you could sum up The Mayan Secrets in three words, what would they be?

    Exciting, reviting, unpredictible.


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

    You never know what going to happen in the next chapter. The adventure changes and keeps you wanting more.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I really like Brick's performance. The way he reads the book makes you feel you are right with him, seeing the story as though you are there.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Sam got his friends to help the people of the village.


    Any additional comments?

    I hope Custer writes another Fargo book soon.

    "Better than the other Fargo stories"
    Any additional comments?

    This is a much better Fargo book. There's more back story, a better historical launch point and less blather.

    "Wow - What a ride"

    From space, our planet is small. When in the forests, our planet is huge. Books and stories like this make me wonder just what secrets our small planet might still hold.

    Story
    "Too slow and repetitive"
    What disappointed you about The Mayan Secrets?

    The first time the husband and wife team escaped death it was fun, the second time, not so much, the third time, boring. And the book was basically them meeting death and escaping...time and time again. BORING.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Do not know.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Mayan Secrets?

    I would have asked for a rewrite, and I lot Clive Cussler a lot so that's a strong statement.


    Any additional comments?

    This book probably appeals to a certain type of person, I was just bored with all the guns fights and inane, improbable conversations.

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

    I found it boring and not to the same standard as other Clive Cussler books I have read. Disappointed with the book.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I liked Clive Cussler books until now. NOT SURE WHAT TO READ NEXT.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Scott Brick?

    Scott Brick is good.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.


    Any additional comments?

    Noother comments.

    "Entertaining!"

    I love Sam and Remy Fargo and the adventures they have. There is nothing serious or mind provoking about these books, but rather they are pure entertainment. The Fargos always keep us entertained with their travels and their relationship is something we would all like ... fun, fun, fun, along with their standard of living and adventures. Yes, pure entertainment but an enjoyable read.

    "Uninspired. Characters not compelling."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No


    What was most disappointing about Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry ’s story?

    Repetitive. No much detail about Mayan Secrets. Nothing new revealed. Just a bunch of running here and there.


    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

    Boring, Mono-toned, Flat


    Did The Mayan Secrets inspire you to do anything?

    Nothing. I'd rather learn more about the Mayan culture


    Any additional comments?

    Maybe if I read the book myself it would have seemed better.

    "GR8 read"
    Would you listen to The Mayan Secrets again? Why?

    I have read most of Clive's books. I am very grateful for a clean wonderful story that allows me to use my imagination.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The Fargo's are very cool. GR8 couple.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott is a wonderful reader.


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

    I could have listen this in one sitting but forced myself to make it last.

    "Another Fargo Adventure"

    I really like these Fargo stories by Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry, and I always look forward to the next one. They're my guilty pleasure. I compare them to watching a film like National Treasure - you just switch off, relax, and enjoy the show. It can be a bit cheesy at times, but I actually like that about these books - the relationship between Sam and Remi. All in all, these are fun adventures and I always look forward to the next one. Keep 'em coming! Oh, and Scott Brick does a good job at narration. I actually seek out Scott’s other work now too.

    "Another good read from Cussler"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Mayan Secrets to be better than the print version?

    The storyline is not excessively complicated or containing too many characters, therefore the audio version is easy to follow and enjoy. I have not read the print version but would anticipate it as equally compelling and easy read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Selma is such a cool, unflappable person, she rarely expresses surprise or excitement and continually predicts what it needed.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favourite?

    Selma


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

    I enjoyed the storyline, history and geographical travels, it left a feel good factor


    Any additional comments?

    This is a good read, Fast paced with an interesting historical connection. It takes the reader across quite a bit of the globe and reflects the reality of some lesser travelled countries and the problems their citizens face. The partnership of the Fargo's with a specialist is becoming a trend but one which adds credibility to the story, The specialist in this one and some of the other characters they meet along their journey all help to make this worth reading.
