I love this action series by Christopher Cartwright! Sam Reilly is an endearing character with a panache for adventure and treasure hunting. The premise of searching for a Nostradamus artifact and figuring out the code is thought provoking. This adventure has so much going for it. Original story, vivid imagery, near death situations, mystery and suspense are all woven in the story. I was pulled into the book from the very beginning. David Gilmore added to the enjoyment with his distinguishable voices for the various characters. This book is a standalone listen and part of a series. I thought this was time well spent, and look forward to the next adventure.
NostradamusThe Nostradamus Equation
Sam Reilly, Book 6
By: Christopher Cartwright
Narrated by: David Gilmore
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary.
I love books looking for artifacts but this one is about Nostradamus, prophecy, and of course the usual action, adventure, suspense, and near death multiple times. Never dull in Sam Reilly's life! These books are like chips, you really can't read just one! They are addictive! I am hooked.
The narrator is awesome at keeping the emotions running fast and hard. That is how the book runs. He also is great at all the voices that is like family to me now. Great job!
I love these books.
To me, the style these books are written in is reminiscent of the old style adventure novelists like H. Rider Haggard - who wrote King Solomons Mines and its sequel plus many other novels.
The author kindly gave me a free copy of book three and I was only halfway through listening to it when I knew I had to stop and read the first two before I finished it and was very happy to find this compilation.
If you want an adventure story that is just that without the gory bits that often are added to modern novels just to colour it but don't actually add to the story.
I have now listened to all six available on Audible and am sad the rest of the series so far is not available via Audible. I hope they read this review and consider adding them as listening via Kindle is just not the same.
