What a mixed bag of an audiobook. While I enjoyed the storyline, the narration was awful! The narrator seemed to have all sorts of awkward pauses, and emphasis on the wrong part of the sentence, making listening tiring. Too bad Ron McLarty ruined a good story!
Don't you just love a great story well told?
This book takes a wicked turn when our hero winds up in seemingly the middle of nowhere to hide out. Well read (some may quibble about "not enough irony" in the narrator's tone but your own brain can and should be able to understand ironic comments read with the standard tension of this narrator. Excellent production (no mouth sounds for those who get annoyed by that.) A first rate thriller with excellent cliffhangers. As always the fifth star is saved for "required reading" (as opposed to just plain entertainment). Any book with true knowledge passed (such as a well written fictionalized history novel or non- fiction, or political book.) For good ear candy this listener is rapidly becoming a big Baldacci fan.
I downloaded Divine Justice to my MP3 as a trial run of the Audible Service. Besides the smooth download process, the story line was intriguing given my line of work. The outcome was unbelievable. This was an excellent story worth every minute of listening. TV can radio give you 5 maybe 15 minutes of uninterrupted entertainment. Audible and "Divine Justice" provided hours and hours of excellent seat clinching listening without one second of commercials, or advertisements. This story is perfect for long flights, waiting between flights or remote work places without access to tv, internet, or radio stations. I am now a dedicated customer of Audible and Fan of David Baldacci.
This book started out slowly. In fact, I almost stopped listening two hours into the book. But the pace picked up and at the end I could not put it down. I have enjoyed the previous Camel Club books more because they were more about the members and their idiosyncracies, but this book still was entertaining
The author wishes us to join him in an alternate universe where the most outrageous events can occur without a hiccup or hitch. The characters are 2-dimensional and the dialogue is 12th grade at best.
How they trap the chief villain is so childish that it is not worth the time getting there.
The reader, however, is excellent.
This book was good, maybe not as good as the other Camel Club books though. There are places where it sort of drags but all in all if you liked the others read this one.
Maybe the next one will be better.
