this book was the BEST book from David Baldacci I have listen too, the character called Robie, is a hitman I only wish the audio would Drop the sound effects of gun fire. I truly enjoyed this hit-man. I only hope Book 2 is just as good,
I had the hardest time watching TV, I would sit in front of the TV ( it was off) and listen to this book for hours, I could not put this down,,,
I could not figure out the the "whodoneit" til the very end
Great start to Will Robie book series
Will Robie is a professional killer working for an unnamed federal agency. Sounds familiar right, wrong. The story grabs you from the start and doesn't let go till the end. I became a reader of the author with his book "The Winner" but recently his story lines have been less than thrilling and his characters not so engrossing. The reader was good and the sound effects were not overwhelming. I have to admit that every once in a while I enjoy the distraction of a book with sound effects thrown in. It reminds me of the old radio shows.
I apparently did not read the reviews that made note of the sound effects. I just could not focus on story. I was driving when I first listened and literally could not believe the sounds were coming from the book I was listening to. I don't return many, but this one is going back on the shelf. I've read a fair amount of Baldacci and really enjoyed them. This was my first listen and I will be much more diligent in my selections from this author in the future. I was really looking forward to entering into a new series, so this was a major let down.
Not at all.
Possibly, but only if not accompanied by cheap sounding effects.
Honestly I did not get far enough to note any.
Thank goodness Audible has a return policy.
I loved the story line and the special affect.
I enjoyed all the characters.
Baldacci as usual does a great job of involving the reader . You try to figure out from the very beginning
who did it. as good as I am . I couldn't.
Loved the sound effects and everything about this book. Going to listen to The Hit now.
It did get better towards the end. I did want to keep listening as much as possible.
I thought the narrators did a good job. I did find the sound effects (gun shots, tires screeching, etc) to be kind of corny though. It wasn't annoying but they made me grin when I should have been gripped by suspense.
I really enjoyed this. Had a hard time getting into his books but listening works for me. A friend pushed me and now I select Baldacci as one of my favorites. This has interesting twists from the sniper refusing to take the shot and the run he must take.
OUTSTANDING NARRATION, BEARABLE SOUND EFFECTS. AND STORY REALLY ROLLS ALONG BUT CASSIDY FAILS AT TRYING TO PULL IT ALL TOGETHER AT THE END - JUST NOT POSSIBLE, ENDING UNBELIEVABLE IN A COUPLE OF MAJOR WAYS.
I DON'T THINK SO
EVERYTHING! EXCELLENT NARRATION AND PERFORMANCE. HE GETS 5 STARS.
YES. SEEMED LIKE A REALLY DECENT PRODUCTION UNTIL THE STORY LINE BIT THE DUST AT THE VERY END.
NO. WISH THAT IT COULD BE FIXED SOMEHOW, THAT'S ALL.
