Genuinely thought with the fantastic world of Pendergast in his belt this book would hold huge potential.
It’s not great.
It reads like a straight to TV movie.
The narrator has just one accent he does well and the rest are cheesy.
When not in character his rendition is wooden and uninspired.
I’m really disappointed.
It took me a while to get on with the narrator. He seemed to be trying to hard but after a couple of chapters it got better (or i stopped noticing) enjoyed the book and its references to real American army projects and other similar ideas.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
This prose is beyond redemption
What was most disappointing about Preston Child’s story?
Poorly written - an 8th grader could have done better.
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
He did an ok job considering the material he had to work with.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Any additional comments?
Don't waste your credit.

Feel foolish having this was by Preston AND Child. Amateurish writing, simplistic story, and distracting narration. I couldn't tell if mispronounced words were just the reader's fault or if the author used the wrong words. Exuberant instead of exorbitant? Just one example of misuse that took me right out of the story repeatedly. Worst accents I've heard in audio books, ever.
