I have heard a lot of great things about this author, so I was really excited about the book. His narration is absolutely unlistenable. It is the most monotonous, monotone, pile of crap I have ever heard. I could only get through 2 chapters. The subject matter was about as compelling as his narration.

I have listened to thousands of hours of audiobooks. The Harry Potter is series blows everything away and it’s not close. The narration. Is absolutely impeccable. I am literally in awe when I listen. This will spoil you.

This book is like a never ending rabbit trail. It goes on and on. I had to take breaks for days at a time to finish this book. It took nearly a month to finish it. This over 20 hour book should have been shortened to a couple of hours. I am an avid Stephen King fan, but I have not been a big fan of this series.

This is a fun fast paced book. All Dan Brown books have a brilliantly fun tempo. However, the story itself was kind of silly. The cat and mouse game was ridiculously overplayed in this book. The love story was corny, but characters were magnificently vibrant. The narration was adequate. He wasn't great but not bad. This book is definitely worth a credit, but don't expect to be blown away.

The lectures are long, dry, and boring, but very informative, and unbiased. I enjoyed them because I learned a ton!

This series keeps getting better. The first book was a turd, the second book was really good and the third is even better. The narration is good not great. The story is great.

This is a really fun twisted book. It's kind of hard to follow, but the characters a rich, and extremely colorful. Each character is very flawed but very redeemable. Cool book good not great narration. Looking forward to book 3.

This is a great conclusion to the book series. Will Patton once again delivers an amazing performance. Once again Stephen King shows why he is a master storyteller!

This was a fun listen! I enjoyed the dual narration. The book had a really good tempo. It was very predictable but very good.

This book finally wraps everything up, but the ending drags on and on. Just when you think it should reach a final conclusion it keeps going. And then as if Tolkien didn't give enough detail in the book, he then writes two sub books so he can give even more background on the characters. I could not finish the sub books. It was way to redundant.
