Another great Oliver Stone story...love that guy! I really like the fact that the story is read by a male and a female voice... Ron McLarty & Orlagh Cassidy add so much to the enjoyment of the listen!
I love Camel Club books, hands down. However, I really wish the narrators would leave accents and dialects to those who wield them effortlessly and correctly. I find the attempts to modify speech very distracting, which is too bad for such a great book!
I agree with some of the reviewers. I wish I had read the reviews before I wasted a credit on this book. I went off of past successes. The woman narrator was nothing but annoying, with her different voices and all of the women had very demeaning and made to look stupid roles. I struggled to finish the book. If it had been a library audiobook on loan I would have taken it back early.
Oh good grief. Sound effects. If I want sound effects I will watch tv or attend a play. When I listen to an Audiobook, I do so to be able to READ at times when I cannot look at the printed version. I do not need a play performed for me. It is bad enough to have to endure 2 readers, but Nod-able should disclose when one of its offerings includes sound effects.
I have to disagree with some of the purists that have previously reviewed the book-I'm glad that I went ahead and downloaded the book. I am a big Baldacci fan and Camel Club fan, and although the Club is not as involved as we have seen in the past, we get a great view of Oliver Stone. Several new characters were very well developed. Probably not the best in the series, which is why I gave it 4 stars, but very entertaining nontheless. I actually enjoyed the female voices being read separately-it added to the experience. Well worth it!
Another great book from Baldacci. He is one of my favorite writers and how could you not love Oliver Stone. Ron McLarty is a wonderful narrator. Keep them coming David and I'll keep listening!
Bad, bad, bad. Incredible plot, too many 'convenient' explanations without support. This author has gone steadily downhill, in my opinion. Skip it.
How many times can you go over the same material and say the exact same thing? They could have made this book much shorter by not constantly repeating the same thing! I have really liked his other books, but this was a drugery to get through!
I am a fan of David Baldacii???s GIFT, of be one of the best wordsmiths out there. I just finished Hell???s Corner. IT???S GREAT!!! I stared on the way home from work, but I could not stop listening. No TV for me, I had to stop for bed. The next day was my day off. I got up, and I finished listening to it. WOW!! Now! If you are not familiar with The Camel Club series... Maybe you should start with The Camel Club, then you will get to know who John Carr also know as Oliver Stone really is. It is a stand alone book, but I like to start at the beginning of a series.
I was very happy to see that David Baldacci continued on with the Camel Club books, I truly thought they ended with the last book and was very sad. This book was as great as the others and character development was as good as always. I look forward to the next.
