Publisher's Summary

The Team: Financed by a billionaire philanthropist, this elite team - a soldier, an historian, a computer whiz, a weapons expert, and a thief - is tasked with finding the world's most legendary treasures.

The Mission: Fearing a German victory in WWI, the Romanian government signed a deal with Russia to protect the country's treasures. In 1916, two trains full of gold and the most precious possessions of the Romanian state - paintings, jewelry, and ancient artifacts - were sent to the underground vaults of the Kremlin. But in the turmoil of war, the Romanian treasure was scattered and lost.

The Prize: The collection is now valued at over $3.5 billion. Despite several attempts to find it, its location has remained a mystery... until now.

What horrible acting!

What disappointed you about The Hunters?

The acting was horrible. Every character sounded either whingy or like an absolute dope. I made it to chapter 8 before I couldn't stand it any further.

What will your next listen be?

Book 2 of Conn Iggulden's War Of The Roses

How could the performance have been better?

Every word was pronounced like the reader was completely suprised by what he was reading. Characters were are voiced in completely stereotyped ways.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Hunters?

Not sure as I couldn't get passed the acting.

Any additional comments?

I had high hopes for this book as I've heard great things about it, but due to Andy Caploe's reading I've had to stop. In time I'll give the book another shot by finding a physical copy and reading it on the train.

Narrator doesn’t work

It’s amazing how much a narrator can influence the enjoyment of a book. In this case, make it very difficult to listen to.

Great story but the narrator wasn't!

The story was great. A great mix of action and history. I expect to be able to imagine which character is "speaking" even if the name isn't said because the narrator uses a different voice for each character, but this narrator was really all over the place with all but a couple of the characters.

The worst narrator in history

The story in it self is good, the narrator in my upinion destroys the book. Will try paperback and see if I can enjoy the story the second time around.

should have listened to the reviews on this one

the narrator is everything. in this case it's horrible I couldn't even get through chapter 2. I'm not going to say anything bad about the narrator aside from with this story and him it's not for me. I'm not going to say he's horrible till I try and listen to something else by him. when I listened to the first Jack reacher narrated by dick Hill I was pretty confident I hated to kill but that was just a great story with a phenomenal narrator that was poorly written I've since come to love Benny of tick hills directions several other stories. I was really looking forward to getting through this book but I just can't with this narration I'll have to get my money back.

Fun Ride (Except for the Valley Girl)

Where does The Hunters rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoy treasure hunter adventures (Sam and Remi Fargo; ARKANE, etc.) so this new series fits in well. A bit rougher around the edges than the others but still ranks with the Fargos and Morgan Sierra! Can't wait for #3!

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hunters?

McNutt vs the entire Black Robe mob.

Which scene was your favorite?

When Cobb realizes the Russian Police Officer is not an enemy, as he rides his horse along side the team's train.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

They are already making the film, so we'll see what they use.

Any additional comments?

I wish the narrator didn't use a "Valley Girl" accent/inflection on Sarah. It does not fit with her character. Hopefully after the movie comes out, he'll change her voice to mimic the part in the film.

Worst narrator in Audible.

As usual the book is about how awesome the Americans are compared to the Russians. Terrible narrator. I wish I hadn't wasted my credits on this.

Couldn’t get through this

I listen to a book a week and rarely find something unlistenable. Felt like I was listening to a narrator who was speaking to a 6 year old. Had to bail

Good historical thriller

The beginning was slow but as the charectors developed the story became more and more riveting Looking forward to book 2
