I had high hopes for this book and I wasn't dissapointed until the last hour,
very poor and lack lustre end no explanations or conclusions,left you feeling cheated as you've listened all those hours and got nothing in return just questions, the narrator was spot on he did a grand job.

Would you listen to The Lazarus Vault again? Why?
Yes I would - it was the sort of plot that slowly reeled you in, and left you quietly pondering over the connections. I wouldn't say it is exceptional in its complexity, yet it has a charm and turn of phrase which reaches out to pull you along. You do want to see where the characters are heading, sort out the mystery, solve the puzzles. I may not return to it this year, but I would certainly revisit.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Not one character alone stuck in my mind, as each had reasonably equal places and positions within the plot. The female lead is both endearing and irritating at the same time - and I questioned whether a women would really act like that? Who knows?!! The males were both attractive and repulsive in equal measure, and I felt myself swinging between admiring the charm, despising the control, and pitying the weaknesses.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
I could tell you the scene I didn't like - but then that would be giving something essential away!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not really - I couldn't say it was the sort of story that would drag out your deepest emotions. But it does make you think, not about conspiracy theories, but how our world has been shaped over time, and how powerful stories have always been in our culture.
Any additional comments?
It is different. It isn't Dan Brown, nor is it going to win major literary prizes - but it is entertaining, and what more could you want with a book from this sort of genre?
Well another holy grail book????....although I found it entertaining and enjoyed the parallel times, it was not what I though it would be. Not one i would recommend, but an interesting listen.
