Didn't realize this was abriged... shame on me
There seemed to be sooooo much missing. The narrator is OK, but being used to Scott Brick for this series it was jarring to hear the familiar characters with odd voices.
yes... to check for the unabridged version, which to my surprise was already in my library. Imagine my chagrin to realize i'd paid twice for this. BUT I can say the story was unrecognizable from the longer version.

Cussler and Du Brul score again
While in my opinion a real book is always best, however, listening to a book is a great way to fill the time when driving or walking. The audio book is a great way to keep yourself entertained while doing mundane tasks.
Cussler and Du Brul work well together. They develop a story quickly introducing the characters and developing the plot. I find myself getting involved, and taking longer walks and driving further just to listen to the next section, a late night page turner addiction.
Tone or voice and timbre all excellent. His voice adds to the overall story and allows you to "get into" the story quickly. It allows you to identify with the characters and develop sympathy for the good guys while detesting the bad guys.
A story decades in the making, bringing history alive.
Cussler always begins his stories with a prolog that lays the foundation for future discover. A prolog that sets the stage and gives an incite into earlier mankinds adventures and follies. If Cussler's or Du Brul's name is on it you can bet it will be a good listen (read).
