I just finished Zero Day by David Baldacci. I lked thia one very well an started it on aTuesday evening and finished it a day later in the afternoon; so that should tell you that it kept me interested. If you where in the Military its even a better read. You will never be more suprised of the ending and it just doesn't drop it off on you like some books do.
When I write a review, it's fun for me but they are not considered very helpful.
All right, all right! I get it. They're the same but different. Pepsi vs Coke. So what? If you like this kind of stuff go ahead and enjoy.
Both my husband and I love this series. Waiting for more! Definitely worth a credit!
Great character development....good story telling. The only thing I have to comment on is that I prefer a single narrator.
Very strong story with wonderful characters. The book flowed seamlessly with lots of twists and turns. A very good read (oops) a really food listen!
I've liked other Baldacci books in the past so I will probably try another one.
Heck no, two readers with little chemistry killed the flow of what little plot there was.
I wanted to like this book,but the sound effects plus poor performance made it tough to get into.
I have always loved David Baldacci, and really looked forward to this book.
It was a huge disappointment.
The story line was not remotely believable (and I am usually pretty easy going on this score). The characters were not believable. I didn't like the quasi dramatization (the occasional use of sound, eg gunfire). Worst of all was the preachy tone - anti mining, anti smoking. I do understand that surface mining = bad environmentally, but I don't need to be preached about it when I'm "reading" a book for pleasure. And the smoking lectures were a real turn off to this non-smoker who hates smoking.
I'm down to the last few chapters, and honestly, I don't care how it turns out or if he gets the "bad guys". I may not finish it, and this after devoting 10 painful hours already.
Just not exciting location or characters.
Yes , all of David Balduccu's previous novels
If you were on a long drive it would be somewhat interesting.
No matter where you go, there you are.
I'm surprised the lawyers are not flying in from all over to impeach Mr. Baldacci for this blatant rip off of the Lee Child series. Reacher, Puller, Hitter, Shooter, has he no shame.
I have tried Baldacci several times and cannot for the life of me see what people see in his writing. Never been able to withstand more than a few chapters. It is mechanical and boring, and now felonious.
It is a very uninterestingly long way to go for a parody. The guy just does not write very well. Or the population has dumbed down to such a degree that this tripe passes for interesting.
Even Child's ability to keep it going at a high level has flagged in the last few books, but this is just too much. While Baldacci was killing off essentially the entire cast, he should have included Puller (sic) and perhaps considered backing away from this career.
