What did you like best about The Heretic's Treasure? What did you like least?
Nothing overly gripping very disappointing ending predictable
Did Colin Mace do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?
Good job each character had its uniqueness
What disappointed you about The Heretic's Treasure?
Everything. This book was every airport novel thriller cliche stuck together with chewing gum. I found myself physically cringing at some of the dialogue because it was so hackneyed. I kept listening only because I was stuck in the car and I could not quite believe it could be as bad as it was.
If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Heretic's Treasure?
All of them - it would be a kindness.
Any additional comments?
I bought this book because I like narrator Colin Mace so much. And he did an excellent job and improved the overall quality and my rating of the book. The story reminds me of Indiana Jones...racing from place to place in search of a treasure. Lots of people die and most of them in really unnecessarily violent ways but you can skip through that. There are lots of interesting facts about Egypt and tombs and rulers, which I enjoyed. Ben is very likable and very competent (ex-SAS man with all the incumbent skills) who has started a school to train people in hostage rescue skills. Then an old friend calls in a favor and the story is off. I would have to say Ben is a terrible judge of character and that I don't believe he is a love-at-first-site kind of guy, but that's the author's choice. So now I'm going to listen to the next one in the series.
