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

    What A Blast!


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

    Yes, this story rolled right along, great twists and turns, had the usual charming predictability of a Cussler novel, but so much more fun than the latest issues.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brick is one of my favorite storytellers. What I love about him is, he reads aloud as if I were reading to myself.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    ...?( sorry this book was a lot of fun and I highly recommend it, but think of your own "tag line")


    Any additional comments?

    This is by far the best "Fargo" yet and one of the best Cussler collaborations lately, and I have never missed a single Cussler book yet.

    "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

    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.

    The narration. I liked the book itself.

    The narration.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    YES! His attempts at female Spanish accents was horrible.

    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....

    Fake accent took away from listening to the story
