The Sphinx: Area 51, Book 4 | [Bob Mayer]

The Sphinx: Area 51, Book 4

Dr. Lisa Duncan and Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte know better than anyone that no secret is safe for long - especially one that offers untold power. Case in point: No sooner does Turcotte’s elite Area 51 team uncover a dormant alien ship in Earth's orbit than a group of alien-human hybrids seizes it and uses its technology to commandeer a satellite array bristling with nuclear missiles. Now they’re demanding that humankind hand over the key to an ancient stash of alien technology…or watch an entire continent be reduced to atomic rubble.

Publisher's Summary

Dr. Lisa Duncan and Special Forces officer Mike Turcotte know better than anyone that no secret is safe for long - especially one that offers untold power. Case in point: No sooner does Turcotte’s elite Area 51 team uncover a dormant alien ship in Earth's orbit than a group of alien-human hybrids seizes it and uses its technology to commandeer a satellite array bristling with nuclear missiles. Now they’re demanding that humankind hand over the key to an ancient stash of alien technology…or watch an entire continent be reduced to atomic rubble.

Doom seems certain, as the required key is believed lost to the ages - until an unwitting anthropologist discovers the first of many clues to its hiding place. As Duncan and Turcotte race to reach the key - and the powerful treasure it can unlock - ahead of their alien foes, the quest leads them deep into a deadly maze within the Great Sphinx of Giza. The prize? Nothing less than the legendary Ark of the Covenant.

    Story
    "Never let Eric G. Dove near a book again"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    While the concept and story are really quite good, this book was incredibly difficult to listen to as the Narrator completely butchered the natural cadence of human speech. Spitting words and sentences as if reading for a slam poetry competition, Dove seems to have no concept of the purpose of punctuation to denote pauses, breaks, and the flow of language.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Eric G. Dove’s performances?

    Absolutely not


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    "Extremely bad narrator !"

    I Want a refund.
    The narrator messed up a perfectly good.
    I listened for about 40 mins assuming he was just an introducer, but realized he's going to the narrator for the full book.
    His tone is like a 5th grade school boy and his British & Arab accents are extremely phony and bad.
    Even Hollywood movies would not mess up the accents so badly

    Story
    "it's ok to change the narrator, but ..."
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    the narrator pronounced characters differently that the previous 3 books. totally distracting. "tur-cut" vs "tur-caught". "naabenger" vs "nae-benger", etc...


    Any additional comments?

    normal fun "area 51" book. if you liked the others, this is about the same. not as good as books 1 & 2, though...

    "Again a good story streched out over too many book"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I have listened to 5 of these and I won't be listening to any more. Again I find a book that has a great premise but it is far too long - stretched over goodness knows how many books but really could have been a great trilogy at most. Found myself feeling duped into buying the next book only to find that the story was only moved on a little.


    Have you listened to any of Eric G. Dove’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The performance was good.
