Very slow paced. I am a true fan of Baldacci and was somewhat disappointed by this one book. I am not a writer. I am not sure what I would do to change the pace but it needed it badly.
Thank God it is over and I can pick up another book
Yes. Their performance was great.
Not at all.
Like action, adventures, war stories, militay happenings, historical readings-fiction, & mysteries. Unabridged only! Reader IMPORT!
It seemed to be a very good listen for the first 75% then went into an old western type movie! Where the hero defeats the bad guy’s the lovely school “marm” (female stare) is killed BUT not to fear --- the hero does his good deeds & rides (drives) off into the “western sunset” with his fond memories & his trusty cat in search of NEW ADVENTURES … the end!
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.
I have read every book Baldacci has published. This is not his best work but it is still a very good book. The plot lines are well thought out and the theme is constant. There is enough mystery in the finish to keep any reader interested. The characters are believable and energizing but it cannot stand up to John Carr.
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.
I read as often as I am able and listen as often as I please! If you like southern women raise your glass! If not, raise your standards!
As a fan, this early book is compelling. However, the author has greatly refined his style and improved his storytelling in later years.
I enjoyed this storyline.
I am not a fan of the female narrator... has been in several other books by Turrow, Patterson and David Baldacci's. She is smooth but seems to be more suited for another genre.
Mclary has done a superb job with some
I would like to see Puller revisted.
Superman in uniform... Always being superior, always the best in the room, always perfect... Small talk seems forced, dialogue trivial, over all story line mostly ridiculous.... I think I might rather have listened to golf on the radio!
I've listened to a lot of this writers books and generally consider him to be one of the better writers, but this book I had to force myself to finish...
I would not recommend this one to anyone.
This novel is among my top 20 favorites. I will probably listen more than once.
John Puller is a character I'm looking forward to in future novels. He has a strong resemblance to my favorite Lee Child's Jack Reacher.
This was my first and enjoyed the 2 narrators very much. ( 2 narrators is also a first for me).
Secrets in West Virginia.
