    "More fun with the Fargo's."
    Where does The Mayan Secrets rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Mid way. I enjoy the light heartedness of the stories. Good comic relief too.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Sam and his buddies kicking butt in the little village.

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

    Mediocre unbelievable story with one-dimensional comic book characters. Even Scott Brick couldn't save it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Thomas Perry again?

    Doubtful


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Scott Brick is a fine reader. His performance was very good.


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

    Disappointment. I expected better

    "I do enjoy the Fargo's"
    What made the experience of listening to The Mayan Secrets the most enjoyable?

    Great story with well developed characters... the Fargo's are great fun and Scott Brick brings them to life.


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

    Plot moves fast with many "almost caught" moments

    Story
    "Mayan codices_not the real secret"

    I have not been a follower of the Fargos, but since this is book 5, I would have to assume there are at least four others. The focus on the Mayan codex that is the initiating cause of this story leads to the adventures of the Fargos. Reminds me of the old stories of Nick and Laura Charles. Regardless of how difficult the situation, the solution appears, either self-generated or from outside fources. The story is good, if you don't want to think too much about it (which was exactly my reason for buying the book). Scott Brick does a good job in narrating the story. I'm not sure I want to follow the series, but you won't get stressed out over the seemingly impossible dilemmas that befall the main characters because you know that they will always get away safely.

    What disappointed you about The Mayan Secrets?

    Poor story line. I don't think his heart was in it on this one. Too bad, because I really like the Fargo series.

    Any additional comments?

    Take the Fargos, insert random bad guy, random plot, and random setting. Sprinkle some Cussler magic and you get an enjoyable book. Won't blow your socks off, but then if you have read any recent Cussler you knew that already....

    "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.

    Story
    "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.
