I love David Baldacci books and I think this may be my favorite. His heroes are tough as nails, but vulnerable and deep at the same time.
The story in The Innocent had me on the edge of my ear phones! By all means, dive in and enjoy!
Unnecessarily complicated plot, so farfetched that it needed to be explained at the end. There's no room for self discovery ie. opportunity for reader to guess at the direction the story is going or why certain things happened. The author jumps from one impossible coincidence and farfetched plot twist to the next... Average.
Narrator ok, as usual.
Long commutes need something to remove the boredom! Love history, mysteries/thrillers, scifi and bios, but read a little bit of everything.
And for me a new author. This is the first Baldacci book I have read and I couldn't be happier. Great plot line and characters. Excellent narrators. This story keeps you involved all the way through. My only complaint is that I figured out who the antagonists were relatively early in the storyline, but it didn't change my enjoyment of the book. Highly recommended.
This is first David Baldacci novel I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed book hating to pause when life demanded. Will definitely look for more books by this author.
I love a great story -- historical, science fiction, relationship, contemporary nonfiction. I'm a writer so look for great characters.
These novels are well-plotted and unpredictable. Baldacci builds in great twists and turns. He builds 3 dimensional characters and fills in colorful location and historical detail. The actors do agreat job of assuming their characters and varying heir voices and reads for different hats tee. Ron McLarty's pitch is perfect for Baldacxi's heroes. Read them all!
