Sintesi dell'editore

Meet Mulder and Scully, FBI: the agency maverick and the female agent assigned to keep him in line. Their job is to investigate the eerie unsolved mysteries the bureau wants handled quietly but quickly, before the public finds out what's really out there...and panics - the cases filed under "X".

In this ambitious and exciting X-Files adventure, Mulder and Scully fly to the Yucatán jungle to investigate a missing team of archaeologists. Their exploration leads to a strange electronic signal coming from beneath ancient ruins - a signal aimed upward, at the stars.

No, This is not a good X-Files Book

Three hours into the story and it is still totally boring. The narrator's overly present voice offers no feeling to the reading. It might not be entirely his fault because the story is so very, very, very slow.

Not the X-files "feel"

The story, to me at least, seems to never really take off. The bad-guys are presented extremely early in the story line and the commando-squad seems like they're only there to make the ending happen. The whole thing just feels forced, with no real story or development troughout. On top of that I question the narrator's pronunciation of a certain name in the cast, which is hard to get past. Just not my cup of tea I guess. :)

Best original run x-files narrated

Conditional praise! The story itself is pretty engaging and fun, even if the spectacle at the end pushes the bounds of the in-universe a bit. Also, the issues of narration rather than full cast are still present making what would be an excellent adventure into a story that takes a little patience at times but is worthwhile!

Awesome!!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

No, I loved it!!

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I loved to connection to the ancient Mayan culture. . The jungle descriptions were amazing.

Which character – as performed by Patrick Lawlor – was your favorite?

Mulder is always my favorite. I love his passion for weird stuff.

Could you see Ruins being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

YES!! This book would make an amazing movie!!

Any additional comments?

I really loved the tie in with one of my favorite TV shows "Ancient Aliens". It made for a fun story and drove Scully a little crazy. Great book!!

Stilted Dialog

The dialog between characters come off as stilted, partially from the writing, partially from the reading. It read like “…..comment comment… (gap)he said”.
I had been curious how well they’d do writing an X-Files book. Now I know.

Why does Anderson hate the US military?

Well, that’s two x files books fro Anderson now where the US military is the bad guy and inept. Weak ending on scully not seeing the ship.

it was boring

Sorry but the story was typical and predictable. Narrator was just so so. there was no change in characters and this needed some boost in the voice department to keep it interesting. Well it might have helped...

The next best thing!

I’ll try to keep this brief, to the point, and w/o spoilers. “Ruins” is a super fun story from the X-Files (let’s call it “X-Verse”). Many references are made to past episodes. The story itself isn’t as wild as their more other worldly stuff, but this makes it an easier pill to swallow. Also, the X-Files isn’t truly complete w/o a visit from the Lone Gunmen, who make a brief, yet great, cameo. W/o really telling anything about the story, I can only say, that this is the next best thing, when it comes to indulging in the “X-Verse”. I’m excited to listen to another book. If you’re am X-Files fan, this will not disappoint.

4.5/5 stars

4.5/5 Stars The X-Files, Book 4 Ruins by Kevin J. Anderson Narrated by Patrick Lawlor
Summary:
Cassandra Rubicon and her archaeology team disappear in Mexico while investigating a new and exciting dig through some ancient Mayan ruins.

Additional Comments:
- Several other groups have a keen interest in the dig, or at least the many priceless artifacts that it holds.
- Mulder and Scully draw the case to investigate the disappearances.
- The police chief seems unhelpful. The guide seems unreliable. Both might have their own agendas. A team of US commandos get assigned to destroy the ruins because evidence suggests that it’s a base of some sort.
- The young archaeologist’s father insists on going to search for her. As he’s an experienced archaeologist himself, it’s allowed.
- The plot’s not all that complex, but it is believable in an unbelievable sort of charming x-files way. I might have read the book ages and ages ago. Definitely forgot it.
- I enjoyed the performance. There weren’t all that many characters, so the narrator didn’t have to stretch his lexicon of voices too much. He kept a nice cadence and distinguished characters well.
- Content Warnings: no curse words or unnecessary adult scenes. Some violence.
- Mulder is right but can’t prove it, of course.
- This has the original flavor of the series from eons ago.

Conclusion:
Satisfying X-Files tale.

The best one so far

When I started reading this series because I loved X-Files, as a kid, I was disappointed at first but then this one happened and restored my faith in the series.
I liked it.

It’s ok

The story is quite good, and the narration does grow on you. I admit at first his voice did grate on me…but in fairness it just takes getting used too! Problem is the original version was read by Anderson ( from memory) and it was very good.

good story

I loved all these books when I was younger and read them in hard copy. the narrator has a voice that sends me to sleep tho, which to be fair is helpful with my overactive brain
