My Opinion:
Since this was an audiobook, I'll start by telling you about the narrator, René Auberjonois. He has been on Boston Legal, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine and The Practice. He has a smooth sound that is clear and easy to listen to. He made a great narrator.
The story starts out in Africa, and it was exciting. A stalker lion... who wouldn't like that?! I was instantly reminded of the movie, Ghost in the Darkness.
Then years passed and we end up in New Orleans. The action is slow at first, but not for very long. Pendergrast has a no bullshit attitude that I really respect. He is a very interesting character indeed.
Plus I learned afterward that Pendergrast, the man character, is a bit of a literary celebrity. Already penned into 6 books.
Interesting twists happen throughout the story, so much so, I want to read it in print format. A truly fabulous read, and I can't wait to read more on this character.

4/5

  4. The only one of their books I have read is The Relic and I loved that one. Rene Auberjonois has a great voice which would make listening really easy.

But when her abusive ex suddenly dies, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia's sanity begins to unravel while she desperately tries to prove she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.  REVIEW: I sorta hated the beginning. Starts outs so dark that you can't really make anything out. Hard to know what's going on if you can't see. It doesn't take long to get light though. Thankfully. Man, does the story ever pick up after that. I don't remember much about the original but this one is intense. Right to the very last second too. Sydney is badass and shows it throughout. Can you imagine what it would

#Win 1917 (US/CDN)

AVAILABLE MARCH 24! RATED R 119 minutes AMAZON April 1917, the Western Front. Two British soldiers are sent to deliver an urgent message to an isolated regiment. If the message is not received in time the regiment will walk into a trap and be massacred. To get to the regiment they will need to cross through enemy territory. Time is of the essence and the journey will be fraught with danger. Starring Colin Firth. REVIEW: So it wasn't the best war movie I've ever seen, but it was still good. The cinematography is amazing! So rich and with so much detail. The story is just okay though. Two soliders sent to stop the front lines from walking into a trap. Not that interesting and often predictable. A few yelling at the screen moments happened, not gonna lie. How it was all brought together, mixed with a tug on the emotional heart strings is what is makes it good. Watched it with the hubby. He was engaged throughout, so that was good. He's n
