I enjoyed this book interesting and seems to move along at a good clip. The problem is there are too many characters with such varied personalities and backgrounds. I tended to get lost and had to go back and relisten. All in all I enjoyed the book

The story is good perhaps unbelievable but it was fun and clean. The ending was not what I expected and perhaps that was part of what made it fun and interesting. I'm tired of the cursing and bad words that many authors use to write a book and th e copy and paste techniques that many authors use to write a book. This was pretty clean and a very enjoyable experience

This series is enjoyable to listen to. The author seems to hold you interest to the point that it is hard to stop. Clean and enjoyable

After listing for 8 miserable hours the story starts to make sense. I think the author's idea was good and the book probably would have been better if it was cut in half. Maybe better to get a had copy and then you can just skip a lot of the fluff. Hard to tell who the s good and bad until the book is 60% complete. Too much profanity also not needed to make this or any book

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

I don't know

Hard to say when the story line is hard to follow

He was ok

1 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 08-10-15

What would have made Day Zero better?

The idea for the book is good but don't try to sell future books by devoting almost 40% of the book to a subject that has no end

What was most disappointing about Marc Cameron’s story?

the story and the fact that the author decided to try to weave a series int one book with out a decent ending. Why read a book that just stops with out and end?

Did Tom Weiner do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

OK

What character would you cut from Day Zero?

Too many characters and plots no end

Any additional comments?

I hate it when you take the time to listen or read a book that the author docent finish anything just says its time to get a pay check. I have enjoyed this author in the past but have reservations as to his future in my time. I would not recommend this book to anyone because it just jumps all over the place and then just ends with out a rwal end.

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

I love this series about Juan Cabrillo and the exploits of his merry group of people but I am tired of having a older storie written just to sell a book. When a new story about this boat and its owners comes along I am quick to give it a listen. Problem is that there appears to the same sory wit minor twists just to sell a book.

What could Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

How about writing a good original story rather than just trying to write a story to get a paycheck. Some original thoughts would be nice.

What three words best describe Scott Brick’s performance?

Great job

What character would you cut from Dark Watch?

You don't have to cut out a person just need to use original material.

Any additional comments?

Try some originality I love the series but maybe
