I loved this books - seriously great series and I hope David Baldacci is planning on more. Michelle and Sean are a perfect balance for a partnership. In this one, you really can't decide who the good and bad are. Intruiging plot and a very satisfying ending. The new narrater was fine... but I really don't like change in narrators in a series after I have been through a few of the novels already.
Not one of Baldacci's best. The plot in itself has potential, but ridiculous plot twists and totally implausible situations prevent you from buying into the story.
The narrator is decent, but it's hard to like anyone telling this preposterous story. At one point the narrarator reverses his male and female voices during dialogue between characters.
While I've enjoyed other Baldacci novels, I found myself glad to be done with this book. I would not recommend it.
This was a GREAT book. It kept me glued to my Ipod. So many twists and turns and each one connecting to the other. This was my first David Baldacci listen and I'm off to get one more. If they are all as good as this one, I'll be his #1 fan!
I did not like this book at all. Way too unbelievable- too much fluff, and for the most part, boring. I couldn't wait for it to end.
It felt like listening to a bad 4-hour-long Lifetime movie- or bad soap opera.
I thought this was a book that could have been much shorter if he was going to bother to write it. I agree with the other review that this is an author who is churning out his books. He should slow down and go back to his older ways of writing.
Have no idea, haven't read the printed version
Unlike the last 2 of this series where only the end was interesting, this got me from the get go. I really like that both protagonist were much more likeable and did less stupid things; I can't stand when the main characters do things that get you screaming "Oh, don't be an idiot!"
But I especially LOVED how the bad guy was so for real that while the reader doesn't condone what he did, they do manage to love/hate him in the end. I even cried at the end because I completely got how much he loved his daughter--and how he could be angry with God.
His accents are pitch perfect; I really like how easy he makes the Southern drawl sound and kinda sexy. And his female voices are spot on, very believable!
Oh yes, when Tippy died. I felt a father's heart break.
I wish David had done as well with the 2nd and 3rd. Oh well, he did enough to keep me on the series. Normally if I have difficulty staying with a novel, I move on, even if I spent a credit.
You know a thriller is failing when its most vivid, interesting and sympathetic character is the villain, followed by the 12-year-old girl whose kidnapping he has orchestrated.
Everyone else here is boring, and the plot plods. The murder of Michelle's mother and its investigation - completely unrelated to the main plot - bogs the book down further.
The narrator is good, especially when giving voice to the villain. Not good enough to bring this novel up to a credit-worthy level.
This was a great book, but very long. I took a four hour trip to see my daughter and listened the whole way there (4 hours) and back (4 hours) and still had a lot of listening to do after I got home.
