If you were a fan of books like Absolute Power and Split Second....move on an continue being a Baldacci fan. I started it, stopped, started again, and finally gave up about halfway through.
The story is weak, the characters are cliched, and on top of that the narration is awful. Good audiobooks hook you and make you look forward to your next chance to listen. This book irritated me and made me turn it off several times to enjoy the silence.
True Blue was an average listen. I didn't find the characters compelling or believable. The sisters are just plain illogical in most of their actions. If they were a bit more eccentric, I could understand. Baldacci should get back to writing Camel Club books and stop with these poor diversions.
I'm a Baldacci fan period. If he writes it, I buy it. This was not in my normal great job book section. Plot OK, Theme OK, just never grabbed me.
I am amazed this book ever got published. It is so predictable it is almost laughable until I realize that I paid for this! One new thing I did learn, however, was to start reading the reviews of future purchases.
this book started out great, went along fine, but fizzled at the end... i enjoy his books as a rule, so all in all worth the read...
Baldacci- It was hard for me to remember I was reading one of his books. The plot was slow and not really interesting -I finish the book only because I always do -hoping it will get better. This book did get alittle more interesting but was not a good book that held your interest. Do not buy this book thinking it is going to be one you cannot put down. In fact it is one very easy to put down and then pick up hoping it will improve. It did get better but not good. I was most disappointed and the reviews were overrated.
I read some of the reviews that stated that this was not a good example of Baldacci's work . I strongly disagree - I really enjoyed the characters - I hope to see the sisters in future books. I enjoyed the story and did not have ANY trouble following the various sub plots. While the Camel Club series remains my favorite- I really enjoyed this one too. Ron McLarty continues to do justice to the writing.
I love David Baldacci's books! I bought this one as soon as it came out, then kept it for later when I knew I would really enjoy it. Unfortunately, I was disappointed. It is another conspiracy book, but it lacks the charm of the Camel Club series. I found myself not really caring if Mace and Roy came out alive. I think that this is the first of a series because it leaves you hanging. I hope the next one is better.
Audible .com has really brightened my life. My macular degeneration continues to degenerate and Audible has opened new doors for me. Thanks. Kids gave me a Victor Reader and am wearing it out!
