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.
A few must reads: Mr. Mercedes, Narrows Gate, Cop Town, Bomb Proof, Wayfaring Stranger, The Son (Nesbo), Dept Q series...
This is my favorite of all of Baldacci's works. The movie is excellent, but the book is much better, the plot is different as are the characters. Its a must listen!
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.
Really liked this book. Author does not waste time talking about obvious conflicts the main is likely having.
Reading of the book was quite slow-
Be cautious, this book is very pornographic through the first chapters. Too bad such a good story teller couldn't follow the Grisham style of good clean suspense without the tawdry details of sexual exploitation.
So when I first joined audible I purchased a book based on the 'recommendation' of David Baldacci I believe - a book by Thomas Greanias, Raising Atlantis which I hated so I decided to never read anything from Baldacci. Then I read some really glowing reviews for this book and decided to try my first Baldacci. I actually enjoyed the pace of the story. However, too often there seemed to be implausible events or characters did stupid things which bothered me. I also felt that the stereotyping of women's behaviour became a bit grating -- although I suppose that women might be more likely to suffer from a breakdown or to cry or to exhibit signs of emotional frailty. Finally, the tone of Scott Brick's narration for some reason was a bit flat and a little annoying and he seemed to be reading a little differently than usual. I usually enjoy his narrations. Overall though, this book is engrossing and it's relatively long which is nice too so I would recommend it.
As an active / outdoor guy, I love listening to audiobooks while trail running, hiking, etc.
Scott Brick - the reader. Great story line
Murder / who-done-it. The main character is terrible.
Generally I like Scott Brick
Again, the main character is a baby - not because of any particular decision, but overall he whines quite a bit and makes shallow, impetueous decisions. I did not like his character.
