So there are similarities between Puller & Reacher, there are also differences. Both are extremely likable characters that I would love to have on my side and there is plenty of room in this messed up world for the both of them. I thought his book was excellent and Mr B NEVER disappoints. The characters were believable, likable or in the case of one, maybe not so much ... I will definitely read this one again and I would definitely recommend it to others. Narration ... par excellence as usual. I've already downloaded THE FORGOTTEN and am ready for my next good listen!
I read a lot of reviews about this book in relation to jack reacher. This book stands on its own and was good. It was similar to jack but who cares. The narration is probably the best I have heard so far. Excellent.
What is it with this company? It seems that every book of theirs that I purchase is filled with unnecessary sound effects. I don't need music to cue me that something exciting is happening. I don't need a soldier's battlefield dreams enhanced by the sounds of weapons firing. You have a decent pair of readers. Let them do their jobs without the cheap sound effects to distract and annoy the listener! I may buy one more Book in this series but if it is messed up like this one, it's the last I buy from this publisher.
Interesting book. Why sound effects and music? Poor choice. Distracting. Cartoonish characters, sometimes. Difficult to take seriously.
As usual David Baldacci gave us a book that makes you feel like you are on a roller coaster. A simple story that has so many twist and turns that you feel like you don't want it to end. I enjoyed the read very much.
