I am really surprised that Baldacci wrote such a horrible unorganized confusing and silly book. I have read 4 other of his very good thrillers and they each hung together with good plots and character development. Whatever the ???Camel Club??? is, it surely was never explained other then that they were a bunch of semi-homeless guys who read alot in many different languages. I only finished it because I just like his other books so much. I hope this doesn???t forecast some weird change for Baldacci.
I really enjoyed the book until the last 4 chapters where it felt like a writing deadline slammed the book closed while he tried to shoehorn in all the rest of his ideas.
I would really like this book. I thought it was fairly well done, but my problem is that I really like this country and do not believe the Muslim extremists are all fluffy good and we are the big bad wolf. Too bad the author lets his political views blast through like he did in this book. It made for a tough listen at times.
If I had another book to listen to I would had skipped this one. I did start to enjoy the second half of it , but found the premise totally unrealistic. Entertaining and worth the wait for it to become a good book. Should not be included in any great works of fiction.
This is a good story with wonderful characters. I hope there are more to come so I can get to know them better. The plot keeps you guessing.
Qualifies as a book you are sad to hear it end. Would have liked to see a little bit more romance for the title character...Oliver Stone. What annoys me is someone his age could retain his killing edge but seems oblivious to the lady trying to seduce him in the next tent.
Was very pleased with the narrator and the book content however, dont get me wrong.
Love this author and his style of writing. This is consistent with his normal releases, and it was an entertaining listen.
No complaints. This is what I expect in an entertaining read.
I really enjoyed this book. It was nice to have a wide array of characters to keep track of and I learned quite a bit about middle-eastern thought.
