When a book holds your interest by getting you to avoid attending to other pressing issues, you have to give credit to the writer. It's not a literary work for the ages. It's like attending a movie you found enjoyable.
One Man's Opinion
No stupid sound effects, there should be a warning label. Why do you need a woman to do the women's voice. I would have preferred a woman reading the entire book rather than having a women's voice pop up out of nowhere. It's not a movie or even a radio show. It's one person reading a book out loud as best they can. Made it very hard to loose myself in the story.
This was an excellent read and follow-up to the first Puller book. If you like Baldacci, you'll really like this book.
It is a pleasure to see that at least this Tier 1 author continues to write his own novels rather than get others to do them under his name and just editing their basic work.
Unless you're a Baldacci fan, skip this one. The story is predictable, the characters right off the shelf of action stories. Not much original. Read a David Baldacci that I liked a long time ago. Tried him again and swore off. Then I made the mistake of looking at the four star rating while looking for a page turner. Very disappointed. Looking for action? Try Lee Child's stuff.
Turned me off from David Baldacci.
McLarty was good. The story had to rely on sound effects to enhance it. Didn't help, though.
It was just another of this fine author's novels that flow well with an intriguing result.
John Puller, the main character.
Yes and this one was comparable to the others.
narration always plays a big part.
pretty edgy...had a few unexpected surprises
I can't remember.
no extreme reaction...laughing or crying was not applicable to this book.
Always like a Baldacci read, oops - listen
Yes, the book has a great story line, not very predictable and keeps you entertained
Lee Child's Jack Reacher is very similar to this style, story and plot
yes, other David Baldacci books and they are really great together
yes, but that would have been impossible
Well structured and wonderfully performed. If u like a book that is exciting and a page turner this is for u
YesKept me intrigued
Puller of course, ended up getting other books in the series
All equally good
The action when the gang came to Puller's hotel to seek revenge
Baldacci has another great book on his hands... it is a great pleasure reading an action packed book without being filled with foul language and sexual exploits! Only a talented writer can accomplish that and they are fewer and fewer of these types of writers.
Puller was my favorite character because he didn't go with the flow, and he respected his elders.
It was... but because of a busy lifestyle I was not able to do so.
Well worth the listen!
