Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Roger | 2/18/2014

    " 3 stars for complexity and scope (not to mention the famous side figures like Lord Byron etc.) ... but this book didn't match "The Eight" ... felt more forced. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Kathryn | 2/16/2014

    " Disappointing. The puzzles felt contrived and the ending was very disappointing. There was such poor character development that I didn't even care what happened to any of them. The plot line was very confusing. I had to force myself to finish this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Cherielyn Leong | 2/15/2014

    " Will not recommend this book. The plot is confusing and pointless. Too many stories cramped into the plot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rena | 2/3/2014

    " I really didn't enjoy this book. It was very much in the style of The Eight, but it seemed like nothing happened. After two hundred pages, the story was still being set-up. Boring. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 1/27/2014

    " Not As godd as The Eight "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Christel | 1/26/2014

    " Without giving too much of the plot away...I really missed spending time with one of my favorite characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Susannewilliamson | 1/9/2014

    " not quite as good as fire but still entertaining and interesting theories "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tasha | 1/7/2014

    " Finally a follow-up from the author of "The Eight" Ok if you like Dan Brown's type of books, but a disappointing follow-up to "The Eight" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emily | 12/14/2013

    " This would have gotten 5 stars but I felt like the ending was too abrupt. It feels like there may be a 3rd book to follow. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 12/6/2013

    " Agree with many other reviewers, The Eight is one of my favourite books, but was pretty disappointed with the sequel. It was pretty much a struggle to get through... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Deela Roe | 11/7/2013

    " A wonderful follow-up to Neville's "The Eight"! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chris Pierce | 9/6/2013

    " Poorly written with an ending that does not justify the effort needed to get there. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Harvie | 8/26/2013

    " I really wanted to like this book but it was terribly confusing... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Heather | 8/24/2013

    " This is a unconvincing and weak sequel; one of the few times I have genuinely wished that I hadn't read a book. I struggled to put The Eight down; The Fire I struggled to pick up. Disappointing. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie G. | 6/8/2013

    " It was hard to finish this book. It was just crap. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 9/21/2012

    " Overall a great continuation of the story from The Eight. At times the focus of the story jumped around a bit too much and it was difficult to understand who was narrating, or who the focus became, but enjoyable and a quick read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marisa | 7/11/2012

    " I was on the edge of my seat the entire time I was reading this book. I wasn't sure how it was going to pllay out as a sequel to The Eight, but the author did a great job. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gustavo Martinez | 2/13/2012

    " this book have the particular style of Katerine....I like "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jenny | 8/15/2011

    " This was disappointing compared to The Eight. I had to force myself to slog through the slow bits. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mark | 6/9/2011

    " Sequel to "The eight". Not as strong as the first book "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 6/2/2011

    " While, I found the switch between Haidee's time period and Alexandra's too be a literary effect for convenience, I really liked the mystery and the change in locations. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Julie | 5/12/2011

    " It was hard to finish this book. It was just crap. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Fan | 4/28/2011

    " The book started well with the father taking the daughter to a chess tournament. Along theway,the story begins to get a bit muddled with the storyline and plot. All in all a pretty good read but if the author had tighten the plot and weave a solid tale, it should be a fantastic read. Thanks. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tonya | 4/25/2011

    " Better than DaVinci Code! I loved this book and can't wait to dive in and research all the history it was infused with. If you like conspiracy theories interwoven with amazing historicals, you will love this book. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michelle | 4/1/2011

    " sequel to the eight is terrible, nonsensical, though original; instructions-basic rules given to mankind was cool "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marilyn | 3/27/2011

    " This continues the story started in The Eight and again there are many thought provoking sections especially about the puzzles and clues. I enjoyed the relationships of numbers and ways information was shared as well as an action filled story. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Angie | 2/26/2011

    " Definitely wasn't as good as "The Eight." I guess my expectations were too high. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michele | 2/21/2011

    " Very uneven. This book is a sequel to "The Eight," which I remember as excellent. This one meandered and had too many things going on. It was well-researched, but a lot of the historical detail was extraneous. Parts of it were verrry slow. The ending was too nebulous for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Caroline | 2/5/2011

    " Hard going at times but glad i stuck with it xx "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Joyce | 1/21/2011

    " I couldn't finish it. It bored me to death in the first 20 pages. Maybe some day I'll go back to it. But as many others have said, it is even less than a pale imitation of the first. I'm so disappointed it's not funny.

    Sigh. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 1/13/2011

    " way to complicated to follow satisfactorily "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Amanda | 1/5/2011

    " I loved the Eight, and boy do i wish i'd stopped with that one, which was a complete story in itself. This was confusing, convuluted, nonsensical, and any other synomyn you can think of. I stuck with it, hoping it'd be worth it in the end--nope, was awful. "
