Another Great novel from David Baldacci. The characters are compelling and the plot moves quickly. The action parts are exciting, but not overly drawn out.
The one thing that was frustrating at first was the narration. Particularly at the beginning, Jonathan Marosz draws out vowel sounds in random words for what seems like an eternity. It sounded as if he were a poet reading his own poetry rather than a thriller novel narrator reading prose. Fortunately, this was less noticeable as the story progressed. I was glad I hung in there because the story itself was well worth it.
I bought this book a long time ago and it sat in my library. Finally I started reading another Baldacci book and couldn't get enough I've enjoyed all of them and look forward to reading more in the future.
This book kept me interested from start to finish. With lots of different plot lines and possibilities, I couldn't wait to hear what would happen next and who was involved. The book was hard to stop listening to because I wanted badly to find the answers to all the questions hanging in the air.
And held my attention throughout the book. Definitely interesting and a roller coaster ride. Rufus Harms is a great character along with the "supporting cast". Pictures of The Green Mile popped in my head when I started but no flies on Harms.
I really enjoyed this and would definitely recommend it.
Kept me interested with a little bit of everything. Murder, Legal, political, and romance.
Slightly. I was worried about who might get murdered next. Also wanted to guess who might be the other bad guy.
Good solid narration. Not a distraction as some can be.
Like action, adventures, war stories, militay happenings, historical readings-fiction, & mysteries. Unabridged only! Reader IMPORT!
The story was very, very GOOD! The only thing lacking was a good reader!
It was very hard to discern when it was a female person talking or just the readers monotone voice just reading on as usual. However it is still a GREAT listen!!!!
David Baldacci is one one my favorite authors and I will buy anything he writes. So I was surprised when I was searching the library to see if there was a book I had not purchased and found this one. Early on I must have been swayed by the ratings but didn't pay attention when I finally purchased this book. It took 4 attempts of getting into this book before I forced myself to just listen for the story's sake. In typical Baldacci, the story was good, engaging and entertaining. But, the narrator certainly killed my overall enjoyment. If you really enjoy David Baldacci, then weather through the narration for the story's sake otherwise, save your credit
Suspenseful and well worth reading
Yes I liked him very much !!!! He puts emphasis in the right places
Yes I could have very well sat and listened to it all the way thru but due to work that isn't possible
I liked all the characters in this book !!!
Narration was decent, and had a reasonable flow, and I would have rated the story higher but it was to predictable.
Excellent story, excellent characters. It keeps you on the edge of your seat until the end. Very enjoyable!
Love the twists and turns. Very well written as are all of his books.
