Baldacci was on form with this one. I am a fan.
Yes. Ron McLarty was wonderful as usual. Orlagh Cassidy was new to me, but did a nice job.
No extreme emotions.
This is a very nice listen.
Margaret in the Mountains
Having more than one narrator, both of whom were great. Also liked having a sprinkling of sound effects.
The general. She was smart, assertive, thoughtful.
I don't know if I've listened to these narrators in the past.
I don't know.
Great Puller story didn't wan to get out of the car at the end of the day, would find things to drive to for I could listen longer
Used a different female narrator......or just one
Ron's only problem was having to read sappy lines. Cassidy is consistently bad.
The female general
Would like to trade this book for another, but have read many Baldacci books - actually liked some. My bad.
I thought the story was too far fetched and the story probably couldn't have worked without suspending one's belief that it could happen.
This is my second one of Baldacci and I doubt that I would try another
The narration was done well with the material they had to work with.
I've only listened to five books so far but I really liked this book and I can't wait till the movie comes out!
I found the female reader, Orlaugh Cassidy. to be annoying, at best. This is the second in the Puller series, and if she is going to stay on, I'll be taking a break from Baldacci!
Yes, I generally have liked his books.
Not listen to Orlaugh Cassidy again.
In my top 25.
Baldacci has written some other sterling books.
I am used to their voices. They add to the build up.
The big question.
ABSOLUTELY! John Puller is a great character. You learn more about him in this second installment. The story-line is good and very well delivered by McLarty and Cassidy. Puller is a combination of Jack Reacher, Oliver Stone, and Sean King; Tough, analytic, but has a side that actually cares about people he comes in contact with. Be sure to read Zero Day first to understand some of the references .
I like the continued interaction between Puller and the continuing characters, like his father, brother, and a certain 1 star General.
McLarty and Cassidy do a marvelous job in this presentation as well as others. They add a level of realism that is not found when one narrator attempts to do all characters.
After reading Zero Day, I was very happy to pick back up with John Puller and see that he was ok, but still trying to work through the issues from the previous story. This 2nd outing with John has made him very real for me.
I'm a big Baldacci fan, having read nearly all his books. I was very excited to see this new character and share his journey. I still like his older characters like Stone and King and Maxwell, but it's always good to to meet new heroes.
In his captivating style Baldacci again writes a novel filled with excitement and the need to continue reading/listening until its final words.
