Rick Is Great

The reader sounds like I would like Tres to sound. Good selection of a reader. The book is excellent. I am a Rick Riodan fan and loved to go to sleep with the lights off listening to this book being read. Please do some more Rick Riodan for all of his fans.

Another well done who dunit

What made the experience of listening to Rebel Island the most enjoyable?

The narrator did a great job with the material.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Tres Navarre by all means is the best detective, and philosopher.

Foul language a turn off.

I am a fan of the Kane Chronicles and Percy Jackson. This 1950ish detective book would have been much better if there was less foul language. I know that drug lord books are from the darker side but even the old 50 genre detective stories did not swear this much. I don't think it added to the book.

It can't be the end.

Tres can get into trouble anywhere. Great story with plenty of twists and hints but still leaves you guessing. There needs to be another book due to too many loose ends.

A Sealed Room Mystery for Tres

What did you like best about this story?

This is a classic "sealed room" mystery. Everyone is trapped on the island and one by one they start ending up dead. Whodunit??? It's so very Agatha Christie. I loved it.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Once again, Tres' brother Garrett becomes a fully realized character, which greatly adds to the emotional depth of the book. Tres' flashbacks to his childhood visits to the island do that as well. Not that it's deep-deep, because you know, Agatha Christie.

Any additional comments?

The storm descriptions are terrific, especially at the lighthouse. And I for one did not figure out the villain until the very end.

Always a surprise

Just as you think you've got the plot twists figured out you don't. Rick Riordan's character of Tres Navarre has a great self deprecating sense of humor. all of the characters are real, and in the end compelling. and the narration is superb. I am sorry this series has come to an end.

Slow start

Good story but slow going and predictable. Really enjoyed his other books and looking forward to more books from Riordan.
