Ok book, awful narration..

The book was really not that bad. It wasn't the best writing, but I did appreciate some of the descriptive scenes. What really made this book bad for me was the narrator. It sounded like he was not used to reading out loud. When he would say a sentence, it sounded like there was a period in the middle of it, if that makes sense. He also mispronounced SO many words! I think if someone like Luke Daniels or Amy McFadden had narrated this, it would have been so much better! As it was, I just wanted them to hurry up and find out what was going on so I could stop listening. The narrator did have a pleasant enough voice. If the narrator said a sentence like this, " The man went to the store yesterday. ", the narrator would read it like this, "The man went to. The store yesterday. " I mean, really? It made some of the story very hard to understand. He ruined it for me. So I guess I will just make sure I pay attention and play a sample before I purchase it. I am so disappointed.

sorry

This book was boring as hell. The narrator was very monotone. I didn't think it would ever end. I promised myself that I would finish all the books that I purchased just before I bought this one. All bets are off.

I guess I am the o e person that did not like this book. It was boring and plot was ssooo slow.

What didn’t you like about Mike Vendetti’s performance?

Boring voice, reading with no emotion.

Any additional comments?

I tried to like this, but half way through I gave up.

Interesting opening.

I liked the characters. I liked the action. The plot is a bit thin on ‘why’ people kept running towards problems... but there were twists, and although not all plot lines were wrapped up, there was a definite and satisfying end to the book. (Unlike many first books in series. )


I received this book for free in exchange for a fair review.

Good Story

THE AMAZON CODE
The break through she knew she could do it. They were seeing into a person, and theIr dreams. Then the hidden message appears, and the adventure begins, covering the globe to the Amazon Rainforest. The suspense follows to the end. Given audio also for my voluntary review and my honest opinion

I was hoping to be entertained... but alas, I was mostly board to death, waiting for something that never arrived. The ending wasn't very good either.

No Editing

The story line was good. However, the narrator was horrible. He used wrong words like obvious for oblivious. His tone reminded me of Rod Servling from Twilight Zone. He obviously did not read this book prior to recording it.

I wanted to like this book, but...

I was offered the book free with $1.99 to add Audibles. This type of book is something I usually love and re-read or listen again and again. Maybe it was because this book was not the first, and the author kept reflecting back to the first book, but I felt lost at times and frequently lost the thread. It wasn't until nearly the end that everything was somewhat explained. To compare this book to Clive Cussler does quite a disservice to Mr. Cussler.

Superb entertainment

Amazon Code.
2nd in the series, and 10 hours+ just disappear - it grabs you and doesn't let go.
Action packed with no gratuious violence or language.
Brilliant storyline and superb narration.
I was given a free copy of this audio book at my own request, and voluntarily leave this review.
