I love James Rollins books and have read or listened to most of them. Rollins always provides an interesting ride, and I appreciate the research that is evident in his novels. The Seventh Plague is a good example of that. The debate over whether or not the biblical plagues actually occurred and the Egyptian cultural/history are evidently well researched. The characters are also developed well. However, the narrator seemed to either not understand or not be interested in the story. In my 40+ audio books, I have listened to some extremely talented narrators. I wish I could say that this one is among them because this is a very good, fascinating book. However, life is too short to listen to boring narrators.

What did you love best about The Seventh Plague?
The science, as always is intriguing.
Action is intense and compelling.
What other book might you compare The Seventh Plague to and why?
Most any other James Rollins novel...The man has a formula for his writing and it works very well.
Would you be willing to try another one of Christian Baskous’s performances?
Not by choice, no. The accents were off-putting. Kind a Texas by way of London vibe to a lot of them and it distracted from the story a great deal at points.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
The last time the plagues were set loose - a nation fell. This time it may be the world.
Any additional comments?
Loved the author, writing and series characters.
The narration though...it distracted from the enjoyment of the story.

I really struggled with this narrator. The voice is monotone and makes it so difficult to get engaged.

I should have read this book not listened to it. I found it difficult to follow the narrator even at high volume. I need crisp syllables, not whispery voices. Also, when he did different charactet voices, they were inconsistent. However, clearly a story with a lot of effort by James Rollins once again.
