The Web of the Golden Spider


Read by Roger Melin

(4.4 stars; 43 reviews)

The Web of the Golden Spider is a tale of mystery, intrigue and adventure that begins in the city, progresses to a mutinous open sea voyage, eventually leading to the remotest areas on the slopes of the Andes of South America. Wilson, our hero, finds himself in the midst of a battle between a deposed queen and revolutionists who have banded together in an effort to bring their country together as a republic. Wilson, although torn between helping mercenaries, freedom fighters and revolutionaries, is more concerned with the rescuing of the girl he has fallen in love with, but who has been snatched from him by a mysterious priest. That, and the finding of the famed treasure of El Dorado rumored to have been buried beneath Lake Guadiva. (Introduction by Roger Melin.) (10 hr 34 min)

Reviews

fun but too shallow for believability


(3 stars)

Like the other reviewer said, the unjust war in particular, but also other elements, make you disconnect from the characters and the storyline. it's a series of interesting events that don't really hang together. it starts better than it ends. it's entertaining though.


(4.5 stars)

This was a fun adventure. The book had love, war and a search for lost treasure. It reminded me of an Indiana Jones film. Roger is an excellent reader.

a great yarn
