Publisher's Summary

The extraordinary new adventure from the number-one New York Times- best-selling author.

Jungles come in many forms. There are the steamy rain forests of the Burmese highlands. There are the lies and betrayals of the world of covert operations. And there are the dark and twisted thoughts of a man bent on near-global domination. To pull off their latest mission, Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon must survive them all.

A devastating new weapon unleashed in 13th-century China... a daring rescue in the snowbound mountains along the Afghanistan/Pakistan border... a woman gone missing in the jungles of northern Thailand and Myanmar... for Cabrillo and his crew, all of these events will come together - leading to the greatest threat against U.S. security that the world has ever known.

Take another thrilling voyage with the Oregon Files.

Where is the Brick ?

I have listened to a few hundred books and some wonderful readers. There is no excuse to ever have a reader where the listener can hear their breathing or be subjected to horrendous accents.One can complete this book, but it will take a conscious effect.
This is an example of the lack of judgement and professionalism of those who are responsible for the production of these E- books in this format. In the end it is a loose, loose situation, for the writer ,due to decrease in sales and the listener, who is forced to endure.

What happened to Scott Brick?

I missed the original voice of the crew of the Oregon. Hope Scott Brick returns for future installments.

Another great story

This is another hit for Cussler. The story follows his typical, high-tech thriller-mixed-with-history pattern. However, a different narrator on this book, cools my enthusiasm somewhat. Scott Brick, who narrated all the others we have listened to, adds so much to the quality of the book, and although Jason Culp does an adequate job, he doesn't come up to Brick's standard by a long way.

Give the narrator some oxygen

Great story but----- What's wrong with the narrator. Much of the time there are definite gasps for breath that are extremely distracting. Perhaps a bottle of oxygen would help. Made it through the book and the story truly was great. I can only imagine how much better it would have been if Culp had a better, or at least quieter set of lungs. Two stars lost by the narrator.

Love the Oregon Files books but really miss Brick.

I had just started this novel, but after the first two minutes I almost deleted it. I have listened to many a novel, but never have I heard a reader gasp for breath as Culp does. It is distracting listening to him grab breaths between sentences. Also, the accents he uses do not always convey the nationality or sex for which he is trying. I will continue listening because a) I bought it already and b) I love the series, but I won't buy another with Mr Culp narrating it.

Bring back Scott Brick!

I can't really rate the book because I couldn't get past the first chapter due to the narration horrid narration. I'm sure at some point I'll get back to it, but Scott Brick IS Juan Cabrillo as far as I'm concerned...his narration is spot-on for all the Oregon Files books. Jason Culp's delivery is annoying and his noisy breaths are like fingernails on a chalkboard.

brick

where's scott brick? the book is good but it would be better if scott brick did the narrating. who ever did the first two oregon files sounded awful and then they brought in brick, and that was good. now we get culp? nothing wrong with culp, but brick was on point. if brick wanted more money, pay him more. if he was busy, wait for him.

i just saw the price is right the other day, and where is bob barker? who's this fat guy?

great book

I love the Oregon Files and this one doesn't disappoint. Can't wait to se what the crew of the Oregon has coming next. Jason Culp did a good job but I definitely missed Scott Brick. Bricks narration gave everyone a cool edge whereas Culp's kinda gave everyone a dweeby nasal sound.

Frustrated

I thoroughly miss Scott Brick's narration. Like a television show, when they change an actor the show loses something. The characters were different and their portrayal was quite different than in previous novels.

The book was vintage Cussler, but I miss Juan and the rest of the team. I hope Scott is not working on another project next time.

difficulty with accents

What made the experience of listening to The Jungle the most enjoyable?

Good story and attention getting writing but... it was difficult at best to enjoy with the various attempts with accents used by narrator which detracted from the story in such a way that it may have better to have just read the book outright.

Would you be willing to try another one of Jason Culp’s performances?

no

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

two sittings

Any additional comments?

It would be terrific if the male and female voices were used by male and female narrators.
