I'm not sure how to rate this

‘Wood’s Relic’ is a well thought out and designed story but I felt as if it didn’t really grab my attention. The story has some action but not a lot nor does it have overly impressive descriptions of the keys to transport the reader there. The characters are likable but I felt as if the listener doesn’t get enough background on to feel a connection with them. Finally I’m not sure the book really resolves anything. What’s up with the relic? Is there something amazing that’s going to be discovered? I felt as if it left too much unresolved. That being said I enjoyed the author’s writing style and while I don’t have a whole lot of nice things to say about the book, while I was in the middle of it I didn’t feel as I disliked the book, but rather I wanted to keep going. Maybe I just need to go somewhere warm!

Mr. McSorley does a great job with the narration, his characters are great.

Bridge Repair and chaos

From The #1 best-selling author of Wood's Reef, Wood's Wall & Bonefish Blues comes a new Mac Travis Adventure If you like Clive Cussler's Dirk Pitt and John D McDonald's Travis McGee check it out. Mac Travis went to the Florida Keys to disappear, but his new commercial diving job turns out to be more than he planned.

This is a romp of a mystery, written with some of the same zany humor seen in such authors as Carl Hyacinth, and it is wonderful fun. The events make their own kind of sense, though logic has little to do with anything, and I found myself wondering if these sorts of things could only happen in the Florida Keys. The writing is straightforward, and even, sometimes, glib, which adds to the hilarity, and the characters are well, characters, indeed. However, even at their most absurd, these characters are believable, and always come across like real, if probably less than sane, people, some of whom were entirely likeable (even when not at their best), and some would have been villains in the grand style …if they weren’t so funny. How the narrator could read this book with a straight face is amazing, but he did and did an excellent job, too.

I might mention, in passing, that I never realized how interesting bridge repair can be, but the author has either done this job, or done some serious research. I give this fun read 4 stars, and 5 to the narrator, mostly for not laughing out loud.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for this unbiased review via AudioBookBlast dot com.
