This book is one of those books that makes you think you should quit your job and become an author. I work with real life records managers and archivists and they are way more exciting and insightful than this main character. I had to stop listening after 3 hours, and I ALWAYS finish a book. I would have rated it zero stars if I could.
I found this book boring. I think this is one of the very few I did not bother to finish. I did not find the historic parts of the book all that interesting and the mystery part was not very interesting. The characters were not at all likeable. Don't waist your credits on this one.
I needed to finish the story so I immediately went to the next book in the series. Author did an excellent job of making us want more. Then after the first paragraph I was happy I did.
as a history buff, I loved the way Brad brought the Culper Ring into the 21st Century. a really fun read. Mr Meltzer has a gift, and whether it's his children's books or his novels, I highly recommend his work to anyone.
Better, more believable plot and characters.
His performances have always been very good.
Will avoid this author.
Writer seeking inspiration
I have nearly 400 books in my audible library and have listened to all cover to cover but one...this one. I've made two attempts and in both cases abandoned the effort, frustrated by the time wasted on this most ridiculous of main characters. His bad decisions are matched only by his inability to grasp the simplest problems. Supporting characters suffer similar issues. It is mind numbing that the author dwells on the simplest problems as grand revelations....and we must wait for the main character to "get it". An 8 year old child would be pages ahead of this author at every turn. Even Scott Bricks awesome narration couldn't keep me listening to this drivel. Would I try another book from BM....I bet you know the answer. :)
A fresh new set of characters!
The Camel Club by David Baldacci
Scott Brick performs this book like all his others-perfectly!He has us so spoiled, it's hard to listen to any other narrator.He is the best by far!!!
We immediately began the next book in the series of Culper Ring characters within 5 minutes of finishing The Inner Circle.Brad Meltzer- please keep writing.
