This book is definitely in my top 10 audio books. I couldn't stop listening until the end. I loved the narrators and wow what a great story!
This book is not one of his series books and the freshness of new characters make it a great listen.
This is a hard one as I liked both of the main characters.
When you "read" a book you have to imagine what the characters sound like. Having Ron and Orlagh's voices brings the book to life.
Assassin with a heart of gold
Baldacci is a great story teller. His thrillers are fast paced and entertaining and this was no different.
The reason I gave it only 3 stars is because the story did not make a lot of sense to me. We have to believe the a ruthless assasin will drop everything to take care of a 14-year old smart aleck he accidently runs unto and whose story just happens to intertwine perfectly with his own difficulties. The performance was amped up with soud effects and music to try and bring something extra (I'm noticing this more often lately). It ends up being too distracting and a little annoying.
Plus, why do bad guys make their plans so complicated? Don't they know that the more they do the more likely the other guys will stop them?
Twists, Turns and captivating
Will, Julie and Vance
Nothing as extreme as crying, but some tension and some smiles
The performance by the narrators was excellent.
Exciting plot with many unexpected turns.
First time that I have heard the narrators.
Great book. A bit gory but plenty of exciting plots/subplots.
A tricky story with four characters you want to know more about. Clever plot and surprise ending. Baldacci, Turow, Grisham in that order in my opinion.
When main guy meets adolescent. Both act like adolescents, perfect!
Cassidy has a great accent used in this. Easy to differentiate the characters just from the voice. Well done.
Chuckle at some of the dialogue.
Great fun read. I listen while I drive, cook, and work out.
This book is fast paced. It will hold your attention right to the end of the book.
Yes. Very interesting and always action packed
I liked the plot and the narration, but could have done with out the sound effects. (i.e. gun shots)
Change of pace from some of his previous books. I always like his characters, but was really charmed by these.
I've listened to it twice already.
Another of his books that I find hard to "put down". Intriguing!! Fast moving.
I liked the complexity of the plot.
This is the first read by these two. I really liked the way the female parts became alive and meaningful.
Held my interest all the way through.
