I had read a few Baldacci novels before this. I found them entertaining, but not overly intriguing. I had given up, deciding I just didn't 'get' the angle. An older friend of mine brought up Baldacci in conversation. I explained my experiences. They challenged me to read "The Camel Club." I bartered for him to read one of my favorite books and agreed to give this one a try.
I am SO happy I did. The characters are rich and intriguing. The mystery was elevated, complex, and captivating. Their development was sufficient to get me invested in them, but not over done. I know there's more to each character, and I'm excited about getting to know them.
Not as technical as Clancy, not as mythical as Meltzer, but every bit as entertaining and capturing - ENJOY!!

This is a story about a group of patriots who want to protect the country. They see the murder of a government agent and the perpetrators. From this point on, the tension rises as the perpetrators hunt down the witnesses and pursue their conspiracy to murder the president.
I liked it, but didn't love it, not because of any fault in the writing, but it just wasn't the type of book I'm usually interested in. Maybe because of the situation our world is in today, and the fear that something like this could really happen.
This was so well written and many interesting senerios and characters
Of course the four in the series, Charm School which by the way is not available on Audible, Word of Honor,
yes but I did not do that since I was reading the series
Greet Series and I loved the Change of Pace in the last book and showed depth to the Character.
I like David Baldacci's characters in this series, but had not read this one! It was a great "read". I enjoy having a voice to put to the character in my imagination.
The development of the relationships between the characters.
The Camel Club ranks in the middle of the audiobooks i've listened to.
Sure - it is a good book, and lead in to the other books in the series. It is a little detailed and intricate. I recommend this for a long road trip when you won't be listening in short intervals.
What can I say about this book? It is the worst book I have ever read or listened to. Banal does not even come close to describing this book. Do not waste your credits or more importantly your time. Sixteen hours of your life is a terrible thing to waste.
Considering that I have a reading disorder, the Audible compamy has quenched a great day of time with Audible as my greatest personal fre
I was lost through the whole first half. I found it too difficult to seperate the characters and there development as it pertained to the Camel Club.
The Second part brought most of it together, but still left me scratching my head.
I listened to this twice because I thought I had missed something the first time through and that was why I did not know who any of the characters were or what was going on in the story. I was wrong, it made no sense the second time around either. I have heard such good things about this author... maybe you have to read it not listen to it.
I have enjoyed so many books through audible and of course it is this one that pushed me to write a review.
I have invested 7 hrs into this book. I just kept telling myself it would get better. It did not. It is actually getting worse!
I just cant take it anymore.
If you like a good story that follows a logical order with strong characters and lots of well described action you will enjoy like this selection. The story keeps moving and descriptions take you to the place and allow you to see the plot unfold in front of you.
