    Story
    "couldn't stop listening. .."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Plot was well thought out and really enjoyed the pacing.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    CJ was a great character. His gritty attitude combined combined with that genius level intellect was well written.


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

    This is actually a first for me with this reader. He really helped bring characters to life and added to many scenes.


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

    There was a moment in the book that will move everyone, but I don't want to be a spoiler!


    Any additional comments?

    I believe this was this authors first book. If so, I'm really impressed and looking forward to more from him....

    Story
    "Why have I never heard from this author before"
    What made the experience of listening to Destination Earth: Rise of The Da Vinci the most enjoyable?

    The plot lots of action


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the main character grew up seemingly before our eyes. Started as a boy and by the end was a brilliant ass kicking man


    What aspect of Barry Abrams’s performance would you have changed?

    seems to struggle with consistancy when it comes to different voices


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

    It made me laugh, cry and almost piss myself, I had to decompress emotionally when I finished listening


    Any additional comments?

    Awesome work sir, thank you for excellent read, when I purchased this book I was expecting mediocre distraction instead I listen to a book that continues to haunt me long after I read it.

    Story
    "Hidden Gem....Must read for Sci-fi Fans!"
    Where does Destination Earth: Rise of The Da Vinci rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to about 30-40 audio books in my life, and this one easily ranks as one of, if not the best. Between the story and voice acting, I was hooked from the first chapter.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The pacing was something I really enjoyed. Some books I have listened to in the past seem to drone on without any real sense of direction. This one stayed on point and kept me interested from the first chapter to the last.


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

    I listened to this book in two sittings, which is the fastest I have ever done an audio book. I kept telling myself, one more chapter, then I'll go to bed, and then I found myself listening to three or more. I was almost sad when I was finished with the book. I can't wait for the next one in the series.

    "Great Story....Great Narroration"
    What did you love best about Destination Earth: Rise of The Da Vinci?

    The Opening. It reaches out and grabs you right away and never lets up


    Which character – as performed by Barry Abrams – was your favorite?

    CJ McDonald


    Any additional comments?

    There are not a great deal of quality independent Sci-Fi books on the market right now. I consider this to be one of the best.

    Story
    "Implausible, Poorly Crafted Story"

    This is a fine listen if you are willing to suspend all belief, not question the reality created, and like everything one dimensional. There are just so many things that distract. I cannot recommend this one.
