Publisher's Summary

Juan Cabrillo and the crew of the Oregon have undergone many hair-raising adventures before - but never one quite like this.
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, Cabrillo and his remarkable men and women 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 company, all of these events will come together - leading to the greatest threat against US security that the country has ever known.

Couldn't get pass 3 minutes...

What disappointed you about The Jungle?

I have listened to all the Clive Cussler Oregan files books and really enjoyed them. For this book they changed narrator; this has happened before on a series and is not normally a problem. However this narrator takes an audible sharp in take of breath before he speaks, so every new sentence has there is a very annoying and very audible in take of breath. I love the stories of the Oregan Files, but after 3 minutes I could only hear the sharp in take of breath and knew I could not listen to it for over 6 hours. I hope the new release in November does not use this noisey narrator. I feel cheated and disappointed.


Would you ever listen to anything by Clive Cussler and Jack Du Brul again?

If they keep the original narrator


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

No thanks


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Only managed 3 minutes. I would suspect the stories are as strong as previous books in this series


Any additional comments?

Please, Please, Please go back to Scott Brick as the Narrator.

Jason Culp is Not Scot Brick...?

What would have made The Jungle better?

If this was narrated by Scot Brick.


Has The Jungle put you off other books in this genre?

No.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

His narration and accent did not entice me to continue with this book.


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Jungle?

I am sure the story is fine I simply could not get on with Jason Culp.


Any additional comments?

Having listened to a number of Clive Cussler books and all narrated by Scot Brick I have become accustomed to his nuances, and the way he introduces the situation at hand.
