I was a big fan of his Camel Club series so I was excited. But nothing happens for the first two hours and then is just got stupid. By hour three I turned it off. Maybe the best of yet to come. Too bad.
Our main character had no character.
Narrator has fine.
Too plausible for comfort. Frightening in its potential reality. Well written and read. I would recommend this highly to anyone interested in covert operations and military stories.
Love all of Baldacci's books and this one is in the same class as the others.
I love audiobooks and now I am searching for any of his books that I haven't yet listened to or read and especially for the readers of this series
No, definitely wouldn't. It's a story, where you want to know the who-did-it, but it's not written in a way that makes you want to listen over and over
Ummm, nothing stood out. It was just a story. There is an irritating "know it all" factor about the main investigator, constantly referring to "in the army this" or in the army we ..." and it was a put off. I had read other reviews about the main character having the too perfect feel, and I totally got that.
The narrator couldn't do voices at ALL. The feeling of audio theatre was annoying at first, but once I realised that the narrator couldn't do voices, just read through like the text, it was obvious that a woman's voice was impossible. At times, you couldn't tell when it was the character talking, and when it was them thinking, or back into the story. That was really poor in my opinion. There was music at random times, which isn't really the narrators fault, but it wasn't an epic book, so seemed pretty stupid.
No, it's narrated in a clinical way, following process, etc, so emotion wasn't really involved.
It wasn't a bad book, and the narration wasn't so bad that I felt I had to return it out of frustration, it just feels adequate. I wouldn't bother reading any more about this character, if there are any follow up stories, and the narrator would be a no-go for me.
Very good and entertaining. I'm going to go out to the second book. Seems like it could've been a little better. The end was a little week I thought.
I love books with significance
Another great one. All his books are good. Good character development. The narrator is my favorite voice adding the female voice makes it even better.
I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!
Good narration, fast paced.. good listening book.
It kept you wanting to continue to find out how he solves the case. Least interesting is the comparison to Lee Child's "Jack Reacher". Having read Reacher, this feels like a rip off.
*Spoiler* Sad that Sam died. Some parts are really implausible.. like his backpack with all the stuff you need to defuse a nuke,, and surviving a nuclear blast, hurled 100 feet in the air.. really? Try doing that.. no shattered bones, or crushed skull? really..
I wish the other books go on sale. Then I will buy them, or recommend them.
