Dangerous search to find the Amber room

Would you listen to Amber: A Dane and Bones Origins Story again? Why?

Yes. There is always a great deal of details to the story. And I know I'd pick up more with listening to the story again. There are a few moments I wasn't 100% sure how the characters knew where to go. But, they are getting information from an Admiral and you don't question your superiors. They did find a journal that helps back the information too. Even as this is a shorter read/listen, it's packed full of details of the mission and action.

What did you like best about this story?

From the beginning we see how Maddock, Bones, Professor, and Willis work as a team back when they were SEAL's in training. It's fun to listen to these men banter back and forth. They are a great pairing of friends and have great quick comments for each other, such a youthful feel to them as SEAL's in training.

What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jeffrey voices these men with ease. Jeffrey has been narrating this whole series and connected series's, from what I've listened to. With Jeffrey narrating and David and Rick's writing, I smile at the small quips from the four men working together. They have a quick sense of humor that keeps their situations light as they work through them, but also makes me smile and keep the story light. Jeffrey's voice brings this to life for me. I have grown fond of listening to Jeffrey. He's always clear and easy to listen to. There is no background disturbances or echos to his voice. Also there is no pops on letters as he speaks. Perfect recording and narration.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I found I was thinking I'd enjoy traveling in person with these men on their adventures. Their personalities and humor are ones I'd enjoy. Plus the addition of possible dangers (okay with them, yes danger) they find themselves fighting out of, sounds exciting!

Any additional comments?

This is book 7, do I need to read in order? I don't think so. We are introduced to the characters at the beginning and see the bond between them all is strong. Then we go on with the adventure they find themselves on in this story, it's not a carry over from previous books, it's a new one. Sure there are drops of other missions together, but that just fuels the want to listen/read the previous books.

I do enjoy these characters and dangerous adventures. I will be looking for more of them!

Fascinating piece of history revealed

What I love about books like this is they introduce you to a REAL piece of history, a true life mystery that the author has delved into and solved in their own fashion. The Amber Room was real. It existed, it was truly stolen by the nazis. It's story was one I was not familiar with though I am now reading up on it. The story was well written the characters were easy to connect with. The narrator delivered and executed the tale well. I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the piece of history that it brought to my attention. I received this audiobook from the author narrator or publisher for free via audiobookblast in exchange for an unbiased review
