All the main characters had the same personality--arrogant and sarcastic with something to prove.
The plot was implausible and ridiculous--which means the ending was unsatisfying.
I will avoid all Scott Brick books. He amplified the sarcasm, perhaps adding some where it was not intended. His cadence dripped with disdain.
Well...it finally ended.
The audible version was poorly produced. The scene often shifted without the narrator taking a breath. If I lost focus for a split second (pun intended), I had to shake my head and scramble for the rewind button. Very annoying.
Changed my thoughts on this book since I've realized it's part one of a trilogy; story = 4 stars.Wish Audible made this clear on their site.
I liked the characters, and the story until it got too unbelievable; the last chapter gave me a headache trying to understand who was who and what each characters did or didn't do. It was unnecessarily convoluted.
The story was pretty good and the Narrator made it even better. As the story came to an ending, I don't know if it was just me, but I lost whose who and who did that before and why did this guy do that? A bit confusing, but maybe I was expecting a better ending.
I would recommend this one but keep the villians straight better than I did.
I couldn't wait to finish this book. Listening to it for a half hour or so at a time left me not remembering the characters or the myriad issues. Definitely the worst Baldacci I've listened to.
I lost a lot of sleep listening to the story. The plot and delivery of the story were very intertaining. I'll look for more Baldacci in the future.
No but I will now.
Don't Know but I would go to see it.
I don't think so. Maybe I wasn't in the right frame of mind. I'll give it another try at some point.....maybe.
I had no problem with the narration. It's the story that was confusing right from the beginning. One of those "we're going forward before we know the background."
Say something about yourself!
kept me guessing
maybe not the edge of my seat but I enjoyed the directional changes
I almost always enjoy his ability to give a little more depth to a story with his "performance style"
I would always want to listen at once, just like reading but its impossible of course.
Great set up
Yes. Unexpected twists.
The ideal presenter.
I love thrillers but this, like most of them, has a terrible time pulling it all together at the end. Entirely too contrived.
The of the book is well suited for listening. The storyline keeps moving with at good pace. No dead or boring sections of the story.
Ritter is a direct, hard nosed guy with an unassuming intellect and objective approach.
