I've always enjoyed Rollins' writing . The stories are adventurous and thought provoking. The Bone Labyrinth is no exception. As I always do with Sigma novels, I stopped often to research the science, I love how muck I learn about current science when reading Rollins.
The narrator tells the story wonderfully. The only reason I didn't give the performance a 5 is for the editing. This story switches POV often yet the editing didn't take any breaks when switching. This meant I was frequently lousy for a few moments when an event was happening in one POV and then, as if in a single break, the story would be somewhere else. Reading this in print there would have been a paragraph or section break that would have made it a little less confusing. I often had to rewind a minute to figure out where I was.
But don't let that put you off, it's definitely worth a read.

I haven't even finished listening, but felt the need to strongly recommend this book. The plot is exciting, evenly-paced and avoids the cheesy, schmarmy tropes that these sort of books often fall victim to. Rollins seems back on track with this one.
More importantly, the narrator is incredible. I'm picky. Sometimes when I hear a bad accent or a narrator poorly fleshing out a character's voice, it pulls me out of the story and detracts from the overall experience. Christian Baskous effortlessly switches from accent to accent -- Italian, French, Eastern European, British, subtle American regional dialects -- and gives each character their own rich flavor that I haven't come across in another audiobook yet.
10/10 would recommend taking a listen to see for yourself.

Really enjoyed listening to the book. loved the way the mystery built up and was looking forward to what they might find but sadly the end of the adventure didn't live up to the build up. So for me it ended on a dissapointing note. I did however like the epilogue.
Enjoyed the narrators voice but thought he read to quick at times not enough pauses before next chapter.
I quite enjoyed this. I spend a lot of time on the road and listen to books as I travel. This passed the time nicely, which is all I ask for.
Loved the aspect of discovery and the great feeling of wonder and 'what if'.
