Fun Story Wasted
What did you like best about Lafitte's Treasure? What did you like least?
The plot was interesting enough to keep me listening. The narration was horribly distracting.
What do you think your next listen will be?
Not sure; I may need to re-listen to Dan Brown or Steve Berry.
What didn’t you like about A. T. Al Benelli’s performance?
The narrator made the two protagonists sound like a couple of imbeciles. I kept expecting Eddie to say "Tell me 'bout the rabbits, George", and the female protagonist sounded like a really bad impersonation of a 7 year girl that's never left the house. The cadence was more suited for a first grade teacher reading Curious George to her class.
Did Lafitte's Treasure inspire you to do anything?
Yes, to never again buy Corso book.
Any additional comments?
The story was interesting enough; Dan Brown would've had a field day with this plot, but this story seemed rushed and almost insultingly simple. There are also blatant inconsistencies and highly improbable legal interpretations that make the story hard to swallow.

Great treasure hunting adventure.
What made the experience of listening to Lafitte's Treasure the most enjoyable?
This story, for me, it has all the vital ingredients, action, adventure, murder, mystery, and romance. This author’s attention to detail has meant that he has also added a lot of fascinating history about New Orleans and the famous pirate Jean Lafitte. The icing on the cake was the brilliant narration of A. T. Al Benelli.
Have you listened to any of A. T. Al Benelli’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have now listened to three of A. T. Benelli's narrations and think he is very talented, he is one narrator who I will be looking out for in the future.
Any additional comments?
The legacies, left to Eddie, and Julianna, bond them as they embark on their exciting and dangerous adventure. Following clues left in the past, they travel to New Orleans on their quest to discover the lost treasure, however, they are not the only ones who know about it, other’s want it too, and will do anything to procure it.
