Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?
This is a good story but unfortunately for me spoiled by a west country narration. I come from Somerset and it's a great place, not an accent that does well with the general population, sorry.
What did you like best about this story?
story line good and i might but the next one if pushed, or new narrator.
What didn’t you like about Jonathan Johns’s performance?

I don't know if it was because I wasn't in the right mindset to read this book or what, but it just felt like it was a little all over the place. I've been reading a lot of Rick Jones thrillers recently and this felt really out of place for him. Normally the stories have distinct and set storylines with what feels like well thought out story arcs. City Beneath The Sea felt a little like he had an idea and ran with it without planning everything out.
Even with all of that said, I still found myself enjoying some of the story. And to be honest, it felt like I was missing something. I know that this is the first book in the Atlantis series, but about half of the book was calling back to Eden. Upon a quick Amazon search, I realize that there is a three book Eden series. I'm betting if I'd read that series that the parts of this book that confused the heck out of me would have made much more sense.
I'm going to leave my review as a 3, but if I ever read the Eden series, I will come back and re-read this story and re-rate it.
The narration for City Beneath The Sea was done by Jonathan Johns who did a really nice job. I didn't have any problems or issues with the narration, quality, or pacing.
Overall, if you haven't read the Eden Series, you might be a little lost while reading this. I would pick that series up first before considering this book.

Reader is difficult to understand and enunciation is way off. Story has holes in the plot you could drive a truck through. I would have enjoyed it more if it were not for the poor enunciation
