Publisher's Summary

In The Eye of God, a Sigma Force novel, New York Times best-selling author James Rollins delivers an apocalyptic vision of a future predicted by the distant past.

In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy...and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin.

At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long-dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.

Commander Gray Pierce and Sigma Force set out to discover a truth tied to the fall of the Roman Empire, to a mystery going back to the birth of Christianity, and to a weapon hidden for centuries that holds the fate of humanity.

Horrible narrator!

The story is well worth listening to this book . But I really wish that Peter J Fernandez had read the book. Nothing ruins a series like changing the narrator in the middle of the series . Took some getting used to , but after listening to first few chapters I was hooked by the story and the narrator didn't seem so bad .

Good story, bad performance.

I finished it. The story was good and a good addition to the series. The performance was pretty bad, but only because of the various accents attempted. Some characters went from Asian to Hispanic and back again between scenes. I blame whoever made the decision to change up narrators.

Gripping!

A great story and a great performance. I have always thoroughly enjoyed the Sigma Force novels and this one was no different.

Avg plot line, horrible performance

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Narrator

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He used the same voice for Italian characters as Asian characters. Was difficult to follow who was speaking. Was even difficult to separate male and female voices, had to rewind frequently.

Any additional comments?

This narrator is on the remaining Sigma Series books. I just can't listen to him again. I will purchase the book instead of the audio.

Narrator.....

This story was fine, maybe not as to the edge as some of the previous novels. What put me off was the narrator, who at times represented the characters in such a contrived manner, that he actually diminished the story for me.

Great story, horrible narrator.

Not sure why they continue to hire Christian Baskus for this series. Intriguing story, classic James Rollins. Painful to listen to, however. Inconsistent accents and boy things, names pronounced differently than in previous Rollins audio books. Would much prefer to hear this read by Peter J Fernandez, who has well established specific voices and accents for each character in the series.

Christian Baskous is a horrible voice reader/actor

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Christian Baskous?

Christian Baskous<br/><br/>His intonation, timing, accents and lack of understanding of general cadence of speech is appalling. Anyone else would have been better.

Disappointing

Would you try another book from James Rollins and/or Christian Baskous?

I was disappointed with the change in narrator in this series. Christian Baskous can't do the accents very well and the changes he made in the character voices were not for the better

What was most disappointing about James Rollins’s story?

This story was too unbelievable. While I understood where he was headed, it was unrealistic to think that the US would not contact the REST OF THE WORLD if they truly believed that the earth was going to end in 4 days. Seriously.

Would you be willing to try another one of Christian Baskous’s performances?

NO

Interesting story; TERRIBLE narrator!!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narrator.

Who was your favorite character and why?

None stood out.

What didn’t you like about Christian Baskous’s performance?

He has very little ability to give each character her/his own voice. All accents sound essentially the same, so it's hard to keep track of who is talking. His narrator voice sounds disbelieving at inopportune moments. I don't understand how a publisher of audio books could possibly think he can pass muster!

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

No. I don't like most movies.
