Publisher's Summary

Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site. What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine. The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder....a bounty that has never been found. As they follow the trail through Hungary, Italy, France, Russia, and Kazakhstan - a trail that they discover leads them not to one tomb, but five - the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of amateur treasure hunters, a cunning Russian businessman, and a ruthless Hungarian who claims direct descent from Attila himself...and will stop at nothing to claim the tombs' riches as his own.

    Story
    "Forgo the Fargoes!!!"
    If you could sum up The Tombs in three words, what would they be?

    Hurried, Shallow, Awful Narration, Predictable


    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

    He struggled with the different accents, Remy's voice was grating, Selma was not the Selma I imagine when reading Cussler--like my Selma better.


    Any additional comments?

    I am an avid Cussler fan. I have read/or listened to just about everything he has written. I was excited when the Fargo series hit the shelves. But, to tell the truth, I am a bit disappointed in the Fargoes. This story in particular seems hurried. There is not great character or plot depth. Do not make this your first Clive Cussler book, Start with the Dirk Pitt adventures and you will be hooked. I do love the Oregon files, NUMA files, and the Issac Bell books. So it isn't a prejudice against newer characters.
    The narration was poor. There are many different European accents in the book, but the narrator does not have the talent to create believable characters. The accents all sound the same. Selma and Remy's "voices" are horrid and do not fit their characters' personalities. Remy sounds like she stepped off the set of an "adult film" and Selma's voice is beyond description. I may be more critical because I am such a Cussler fan. But, I do not think I would like this book in written or audible form. All the points are strictly out of respect of Cussler. It is not an awful book, but definitely not his best. I may have to forgo the Fargoes.

    Story
    "Easy listening, No thinking story"
    If you could sum up The Tombs in three words, what would they be?

    Starts out same as all other Largo tales. However, story gets old as the impossible continues to happen over and over again.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Make the story more realistic as the Largos go about the adventure and less mission impossible.


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

    no
