Another great Baldacci story. He never disappoints. Looking forward to more stories centered on Will Robie. Enjoyed the narrators.
Baldacci is always a good listen for me. The Innocent delivers a fast-paced, interesting story that satisfies from beginning to end. He develops interesting characters, a mysterious plot, and well described setting. He does it all without boring the crap out of me for hours. This is important since my listening time and attention span is limited. Sorry though; five-star rating is reserved for "I can't wait to get back to my audiobook".
Compared to other spy or assassin stories this was just too unbelievable. I was tempted to give up on it within the first half hour but stuck through until the end.
I would. as usual in a Baldacci book there are several stories developing as the book progresses and i like to go back and see if I missed a turn, twist or theme.
Julie, just a lot of fun and a different character.
yes, however I cold not
Listen and get hocked on Baldacci
It was okay. There were too many plots intertwined and the core plot seemed to get lost. Then it picks up again and then loses steam. There was intrigue more because of the narrator.
Yes because I have read his books and he is good.
Initial interaction between the girl & Robie till they settle down. The akwardness and respect for each other and knowing that there is no third person to watch their backs was well performed.
No I do not see it as a movie or TV series
I liked "The Forgotten" better than "The Innocent"
Loved it...woulod love to hear parts I mkay have missed, and feel the excitment again...
A few of the "Jack Reacher" books.
The encounter on the Bus
It kept me on the edge of my seat...wherever I was at the time
The teenage character was a nice addition.
This is my 15th listen of books by Baldacci and this may be the best one yet. I hope this is the first in a new series for Robie, Julie, and perhaps Vance.
Would recommend to fans of Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp series as Will Robie is a similar character
I'll just say that because this adheres to Roger Ebert's Law of the Economy of Characters the ending was predictable to a great degree. Sometimes it is actually enjoyable though when you can predict the ending so some may not see this as a fault.
The actual voice performances by the two narrators were fine. The recording ambiance around the voices changed periodically which was a bit distracting. The use of sound effects and electro-music during the action scenes was especially distracting, though you learn to tune it out.
Even though it was predictable, I still found it a compelling listen and finished it only a few days.
I'll certainly listen to the 2nd Will Robie book "The Hit" expected in 2013.
The Innocent was my first David Baldacci and at first I was unsure however after listening a bit more I was hooked. I loved how the two main characters played off one another and just came to life.
The narrators were good but not great.
This was at times very intense and I really liked how it all came together overall. Won't go into detail so as not to spoil it for someone who may be purchasing the read. The level of violence was just enough for me.
