First time Matthew Reilly audio book experience

I've been a long-time reader of Matthew Reilly's books in printed form. So, initially, I was apprehensive about buying this one as an audio book. How would it compare to the printed books? What would the narration style be like? Would I miss the drawings and sketches that help interpret the battle scenes?

I needn't have worried. The plot was what readers have come to expect from Matthew's books - fast-paced, action-packed, dramatic escapes, a modern take on ancient mysteries, all with characters we've grown to love. The narration was very good, paced appropriately for the tempo of the book, and the subtleties in the different characters' accents was very well done.

Although the descriptions of the different secret cities were adequate, it would be good for the publisher to provide a way for audio readers to access some of the illustrations that presumably accompany the printed book. I'd love to see what the ancient tablet, and the inescapable island (a personal favourite of mine) looks like! That would make the audio experience even better.

Overall, I really enjoyed it and look forward to the next one in the series.

The next great chapter

The next chapter in the Jack West Jnr series does not disappoint!

More nail biting moments, more surprises, and more great action.

I had to binge this in 1 day because I couldn’t turn it off.

Another great cliffhanger ending! By
Ring on 2020 and The Two .......

Sean Mangan performs brilliantly as always.
