"Carolyn McCray's 30 Pieces of Silver proves that Dan Brown's crown is up for grabs. Part minefield and all roller-coaster ride, here is a story as controversial as it is thriller. Hunker down for a long night because once you start this book you won't be putting it down." (James Rollins, New York Times best-selling author of Bloodline)
I am a narrator myself and appreciate what a huge undertaking it is to produce a book like this.
If you are looking for a book that will hold your interest and keep you thinking after you have finished, this is the one. The narration is simply outstanding with an excellent range of voices and a tone that matches the tension inherent throughout the story. The narrator did an OUTSTANDING job. He brought the characters to life and the narration made the story so much more meaningful to me. Could not put this down.
"Exciting, non stop action."
Absolutely, the narrator has a fabulous, deep voice, very enjoyable to listen to. He does a great job on applying different voices, to the different characters. He brings in the excitement, so well, that you feel like you are really there. You can hear the bullets, whizzing by, and the wind blowing through your hair as you speed down the river. This story is not going to be easy to put down.
That would have to be, Brandt, what a sexy, confident guy. So macho and what a hero, every girl needs a man like that in her life.
When Brandt and Rebecca were trying to fast talk their way, past the guard, at the vatican. Hilarious!
Brandt, he's just so fricken hot.
Rebbeca has such a life passion for her work. Anybody that wants to put their life on the line, having an anaconda wrap themselves around your neck, just to get in good with the natives, has got my vote. Waiting for the movie!
Someone else narrating this book. It sounds like a computer reading something without punctuation. Englis
Good story, terrible narration.
"Story OK Narator terrible"
This story is OK but it will never compete with the Dan Brown books on religious mystery
The narrators lack of pace and ignoring of punctuation
I've said all I need to
"Might be a good story, but hard to get past"
Better editing, better narrator,
He has a very weird tempo and rhythm. Can't finish the book and will get the hard copy
Please ask the author to ask his editor to REDO the aubio version, could be a good book but no one likes the narrator.
"Narrator kills the store."
The narrator and the editing. Worst editing job I have every heard. On top of his performance it was unbearable.
No! Any book that he "performs" I will not listen.
"Enjoying the story, not caring for the naration..."
A different narrator.
There is no consistent volume or tempo to the reading, words are mispronounced, and it sounds like there is a speech impediment. There is no recognition of separate paragraphs. It's all verrry distracting from the story, which itself is pretty good.
The theological wonderings.
"Good Book bad narrator"
Few things bother me moor than constant pronunciation errors. Come on folks donot be in such a hurry that no one corrects glaring errors.
"Warning: This Book Sucks!"
This is by far the worst book I have ever heard. The worst Narrator...he made my ears bleed! The story is a very weak attempt to emulate the success of other stories that do an immeasurably better job. Take the worst biblical-mystery/modern-twist book you have evr read and it is at least ten times better than this. I wish I could give 0 Stars!
First, can an author legitimately call thier own book "an extremely controversial historical thriller"? Perhaps a reviewer could give it that label , but titling that yourself seems a little self gtandizing to me. Completely ridiculous plot with never-ending gun fights, bombs, destruction. Franciscan monks magically repelling from the roof of a cave iwhich is actually a cathedral but it's actually a cript or some other crap like that because it's never easy to understand anything. The characters are completely hollow and frankly rather stupid. I can't believe I wasted 12 hours of my life to listen to this whole thing. We were on a road trip and my wife made me do it. I believe this book may cause our divorce. Please let me have my time back. Don't waste yours! It was somehow put on Amazon and came up with Dan Brown books. If you like Dan Brown do not listen to this book. If you hate me and brown do not listen to this book. If you have no idea to Dan Brown is don't listen to this book.
This was the worse book I have read / listened to in years! "He wasn't in the mood to be hit by a stray bullet" really? Who ever is! "We have to get out of here, like right now". Who speaks like that? Trying to finish this book was torture. I give up. It was an absolute waste of money and time. I can't decide what was worse, the story or the performance
