Publisher's Summary

Harold Robbins, a novelist known for steamy passion in his works, stirs up passion of a different kind in The Adventurers, a story of revolution and danger in the sultry jungles of South America.

As a young boy, Diogenes Alejandro Xenos, witnesses the murder of his mother and sister by a band of marauders. As "Dax" grows to adulthood, he channels his fear and hatred into a desire for revolution, swearing revenge on those in power as he upsets the status quo. His actions make him an outlaw, living on the fringes of society in a land turned upside down with corruption. He is wanted by men and women alike-but for very different reasons.

This epic tale of escape from the horrors of a third-world regime is one of Harold Robbins' most ambitious novels ever, combining his trademark sensuality with political intrigue and a globe-spanning variety of exotic locales. Lose yourself in The Adventurers.

Sorry when it came to an end

Where does The Adventurers rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Its not great lit, but it was very entertaining, I read the book years ago, and was excited when I saw it on audio.

Would you recommend The Adventurers to your friends? Why or why not?

I would recommend because you grow to care about the main character, its an very good story and will keep you interested.

still a great book

I read this when I was a teenager. so 40 some years later, i listened to it. what a great book. the reader was great too. i had forgotten even what the book was about, so it was like reading it fior the first time again. the characters were so well thought out and what a story it tells. I would recommend this book. beware there is a lot of sex in it.

long compelling story

it was just what I needed for a driving cross-country trip. a bit disappointed the way it ended, and became a little far-fetched. overall worth a listen.

Harald Robbins best book

Although HE. has written many exceptional novels I find this to be his best book that I used to read every few years and now listening to it gives me much pleasure. My only regret is that it is never as good as reading it for the first time.

My first adventure with Harold Robbins

The Adventurers was the first of his books that I read many years ago. It has lost nothing with the passage of time and could have been written today. Robbins wrote powerful story’s full of larger than life but believable people .The Adventurers like any of his books is not for the delicate minded reader. All the sex and violence is in there but it’s written in a way that it belongs and the story would be pale without it. The reader was just right for the book and I’m wondering if he has narrated other Harold Robbins books that I intend to rediscover.
