I have always felt that imagination is better and more frightening than descriptions, all the more so because each of us creates a personal scenario. Normally I like Baldacci, but I had to stop in the middle of this one because of the graphic torture description.Isn't there enough in reality? Is this really necessary to sell books? It certainly wasn't necessary to the plot or the story, in my opinion. I will have to really think about choosing another of his books.
Baldacci delivers again and this one might be my favorite or at least one of them. The narration is also excellent.
Give me a break! Starting out with a 95 year old Nazi... Talk about pandering, Geez!
It's puts Baldacci into the catagory of draging up old buaboos, Just lazy thinking.
He could have a lest tried a little originality IE the Japanese; were they honor these animals in war shrines
Normally I love Baldacci but this book was a bit disappointing. The violence in the torture scenes were painful to read. I almost couldn't make it through. And the relationships between characters never really got off the ground. It wasn't terrible but it wasn't great. Just okay....
I listened to this book a few weeks ago and now, for the life of me, I can't remember a thing about it. Guess that means it wasn't very good.
I have now lost track of how many Baldacci's books I've read. I was so looking forward to this one because the plot seemed very interesting at first. I confess that several times I thought about not even finishing the story, but I stuck until the end. Clearly I cannot recommend this book to anyone.
