This book seems disjointed at first, but stick it out, it has all of the parts of a classic who-done-it.
Michelle slips into and out of suicidal depression rather magically, which is my only problem with the characterization. Otherwise, it's a great listen.
I have to classify Simple Genius as another BBB--Boring Baldacci Book. This book was a disappointment to me and I found myself fast forwarding to the end. His Oliver Stone books are better.
The narrator's slow and tedious voice caused me to give this a lower rating than the actual book deserves. It did enjoy the plot and loved the two main characters, Sean and Michelle. The hospital "mystery" was distracting and the book as a whole took too long. On balance a pretty good selection.
one side of the river is CIA and the other just happens to be code breakers? umm what a coincidence, and i am not going to read again about some so called martial arts expert female agent always beating up huge males, give me a break, having been involved with martial arts for years, let me tell you, horsepower counts for alot, there were large gaps where the agents employer was just completely forgotten about also
Fascinating, author has incredible imagination, perhaps exceeding the limits of believability at times, but neverthess very entertaning.
I was very impressed with the author's imperfect characters and our hero's realizations of each other.
The story is fluffy action and a plot that holds up and isn't predictable nor ridiculous.
First book I read of this author..... will read another.
This is my 3rd Sean and Michelle book, 1st by audio and I will definitely buy the next one (anyone know it is coming out) if the reader is the same. This gentleman was excellent! The book itself is great as this writer just gets better and better!
Lover of good ideas
This was not just another Michelle and Sean triller. It is another example of David Baldacci's ability to present ever greater depths to his characters, their lives and how it all weaves into an engrossing thriller and mystery.
I find myself looking forward to Mr Baldacci's next book with great anticipation.
