Yet another Sigma Force drama

Rollins does great research, and Baskous always turns his words into real action. That said, the trials and tribulations of our friends in Sigma Force are starting to get repetitive, derivative and predictable. If not for the craft of Baskous, I would likely have turned off this series by now.
Recommended for fans of the series only.

Not one of his best, made worse by narrator

What did you like best about The Demon Crown? What did you like least?

Fast moving, lots of interesting science. Narration was hideous, I can't understand why they keep hiring the same person to read

How could the performance have been better?

His attempts at accents and different voices is very weak, but what bothers me most is everything sounds like the characters are amazed at even trivial conversations. I keep telling myself I won't buy another book narrated by Christian Baskous.

I absolutely hate this narrator!

I keep trying books narrated by Christian Baskous. Frankly I'm surprised he keeps being hired. His narration is awful. Every character reminds me of an angst-ridden teenager. I can't listen to him! Great book ruined by poor narration. I will no longer purchase books narrated by Christian Baskous.

Great for New to Audible

What made the experience of listening to The Demon Crown the most enjoyable?

I never could listen to audiobooks before. I would zone out and miss half the story or it would put me to sleep. I signed up for a free trial to see if I could ever get used to audiobooks. The story is action packed and you just might end up with a phobia afterwards. James Rollins knows how to write an amazing thriller. The narrator Christian Baskous was perfect! I love how he did different voices and there was no monotone to his voice. I had no trouble following the story. Now I am addicted.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I didn't have a favorite character, but I did really enjoy the chapters from "the demons' point of view. It was a nice touch to the story.

Have you listened to any of Christian Baskous’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This was my first book narrated by Christian Baskous. I have listened to other audiobooks before and always fell asleep or zoned out. I didn't do that once in this book. I really enjoyed Christian Baskous narration of the story.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The impact that something like this would have on not just one particular place, but the entire world made this book even more frightening.

Any additional comments?

If you have had issues with audiobooks before this is the audiobook to try.

Was there really a story?

It was all action no story to me. No plot, no plot twist, not much of anything. The action sequences were not believable - bad story by a good author.
