Like action, adventures, war stories, militay happenings, historical readings-fiction, & mysteries. Unabridged only! Reader IMPORT!
There is ONLY one thing wrong with this book is that it ENDED!!!! It did end at good place but I wish it had gone on & on & on!
Great characters, great story, & and an excellent read by Scott Brick! No deed to say more BUT give it a try....!
Yes, Mr. Brick read this like a drama rather than a mystery/thriller. Really took away from the story for me.
George Guidall...actually even Mr. Brick if he wasn't so dramatic about everything.
This is a very good read and you will enjoy it from the beginning. It is typical of the writer but worth your time and money. Buy it.
The book is quite compelling. It is complex, absorbing, and really interesting. The problem is with the narration. Scott Brick does well enough when reading conversation. But ordinary descriptions of places, or weather, or people, or random activities - sound either mawkishly sentimental, or falsely dramatic and ridiculous. It is often nauseating to have to listen to him. I will never again listen to a book read by Scott Brick.
As are most of Baldacci's books, this is a good one and if you've seen the movie, it's interesting seeing how they extracted the movie from the book. It's not a great book, but it keeps your interest. It's well read too. A bit longer than it needs to be ... but that's a quibble. If you are looking for a fast paced novel with a high body count -- and at least one really evil bad guy at the center -- and you don't mind that the plot is predictable, it's a good read.
Great book! While we saw the movie years ago, this book captured your attention from moment one. The level of detail and intrigue made me anxious as to when I would have the opportunity to get back and listen again! I hated to stop! Sorry it is over, Baldacci never lets you down.
This is an excellent novel by David Baldacci. I read it many years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it; however, with the excellent narration by Scott Brick, I was able to enjoy it in a whole new way! This book is suspenseful from its opening chapter as it intricately combines sex, law, business, politics and murder! I highly recommend!
I loved the book. I could not listen to Scott Brick, He is my least favorite narrator. So I had to read the book the old fashioned way.
I listened to this book on tape, in my car, almost 20 years ago. I remember not wanting to check in to my hotel so I could keep listening. While the ending seems a bit far fetched, it brought back a lot of memories for me as this was one of the first audible books I ever listened to. I really liked Baldacci's comments at the beginning as he reflected on the writing of the book so many years ago. Great listen.
I've listened to so many of David Baldacci's books but I would rate this one the BEST of all his great books! It was so in depth with fascinating twists and turns, such great characters and in my opinion, capped with the best narrator of all times. So worth the credit!
