Imagine DA VINCI CODE (not a well-written book, just a ripping story) written by a seventeen year old X BOX playing teenaged boy and you pretty much have this series. since i'm a sucker for any story with an archeologist protagonist, bought this for a nice escape. i had forgotten that i'd (tried) listening to a previous one in the series and when an absolutely laughable chase scene ensued i remembered that in the last one i stopped listening when a motorcycle/auto chase scene went on for TWENTY FOUR MINUTES...just chasing and crashing. i could hear the author telling his agent "i just wrote the chase scene to end all chase scenes!" unfortunately, it bored me to tears and ended my listening experience. the dialogue is too dopey for me and it's just...kind of silly.

Would you try another book from Andy McDermott and/or Gildart Jackson?
Sometimes I feel like I'm listening to a movie script, but the plot lines are pretty good.
What other book might you compare The Secret of Excalibur to and why?
What three words best describe Gildart Jackson’s performance?
He does a really good job of separating the voices so you know who's talking. He just pronounces some words very weird. He adds er onto any word that ends in a, i.e. Nina becomes 'Neener'.
Was The Secret of Excalibur worth the listening time?
I think so, I wasn't able to predict everything that was going to happen.
Any additional comments?
