What a fab story this was just a ordinary mother and son going to the tropic climate to witness a dig.This is far more than a dig though,and the whole thing turns into a total nightmare ,i could not put this book down,its got such a twist its not what you think either!!!
What disappointed you about The Presence?
I managed to listen to the whole thing, but I found myself wishing it would be over about halfway through.
What was most disappointing about John Saul’s story?
This was not, as implied, a supernatural story and I still have no idea what the titular "presence" was supposed to have been. Rather it was an awful attempt at a medical thriller a la Michael Crichton. Characters weren't developed at all and I found myself just not caring what happened. I have read and listened to a number of John Saul novels and generally like his work. Do yourself a favor and skip this one!
What do you think the narrator could have done better?
The male narrator did not do a good job with the female protagonist's dialog: he made her sound whiny and annoying. Likewise with the Hawaiian and Japanese accents.

great suspense but as usual with John Saul I had no clue what the ending meant
