I don't know whether it was the way the work was abridged, or the way the book was written, but I saw the principal plot twists in this book coming from about a mile away. I found the resolution of the book unbelievable.
It was well narrated, and I was interested, but I simply could not suspend disbelief.
Wait till this one hits the bargain bin.

I liked the concept but the action just doesn't reach the level of stories by Thor, Flynn, or even Coes or Cussler. Maybe those authors have spoiled me. This story was more like a B movie. More guilty pleasure than thrilling experience.
Maybe Ron Perlman's performance got in the way of my enjoyment. I was really looking forward to hearing him perform this book. But there was NO PERFORMING. It was read in a rather lackluster style with no accents or other voice characterization, and really not much emotion either. He could have been reading a textbook. Great book reading isn't just enunciation. It's supposed to be voice acting.
I am going to try another book by Green but only if it has a different reader.
