Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Arctic Event

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: James H. Cobb, Robert Ludlum

Narrated By: Jeff Woodman

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Date: September 2007

Duration: 13 hours 0 minutes

Summary:

On a remote island in the Canadian Arctic, researchers discover the wreckage of a mysterious World War II-era aircraft, a discovery that forces the Russian Federation into a shocking admission. The unmarked plane is a Soviet strategic bomber that disappeared with its crew more than fifty years ago while carrying two metric tons of weaponized anthrax.
Desperate to prevent a political and diplomatic firestorm, the U.S. president dispatches a Covert-One team led by Lieutenant Colonel Jon Smith to the crash site. But others have reached the frigid, windswept island first, including an international arms dealer and his crew of vicious mercenaries. As for the Russians, they are lying: a second, even deadlier secret rests within the hulk of the lost bomber, a secret the Russians are willing to kill to protect. Trapped in a polar wilderness, Smith and his team find themselves fighting a savage war on two front--against an enemy they can see and another hiding within their own ranks.

    I really enjoyed this book. And to listen to it while I walk my nightly 4 mile walk made it even better. Thank you Audiobooks!

    This book was so exciting that I couldn't wait to hear more. I usually listen to these books on my way to and from work. Last night I took the last three discs inside and listened to the end of the book. I could wait no longer!!!!

    Great as in long. Not sure what Ludlum had to do with it, but probably he jotted down a two page outline and Cobb filled it in - getting paid by the word. It was friggin cold, ok? There was a lot of snow and ice and it was really really really hard to move around in. Did I mention it was friggin cold. Oh yeah and there were bad guys. Not just one; a group. No, not just a group, two groups. Holy crap it was cold.

    This was a fast paced action story. It had been a while since a I read a book by Ludlum. Was great read up to his usual standards. I will make a point of looking for some more of his books. He had some strong women in the story which was great.

    The book itself was interesting and enjoyable. The narrator however made it a pain to immerse myself in the story. I fell asleep numerous times listening to his almost monotone performance. His lackluster Russian accent made the Russian characters almost indistinguishable from the American characters. I guess I was spoiled after had just listened to the narrator of The Noble House by James Clavell. Now there was a narrator who could do accents!

    This is an excellent read. Robert Ludlum is the master story-teller. The vivid description and information made the listening experience pretty much like seeing a movie with the added bonus of knowing the thoughts of the characters. The twists and turns of the story made this audiobook the best of my listening experience to date. Five stars to the narrator as well.

    I truly enjoyed this book. If you like this genre it simply does not get any better than this. An engaging story from start to finish. A very plausible story line told with the right blend of facts and the necessary literary license afforded to all writers. Character development was perfect. Not too detailed but enough to make the main characters real and believable. The narrator was spot on in all aspects doing a great job with the female voices and accents adding a touch of realism I have come to appreciate from the very best. I cannot think of one negative comment to make about this book. I looked forward to my drives to and from work. This was my first book by the authors and will not be my last. The ending leads me to believe there will be more to come with these characters and I hope I have not been misled. A definite must read.
