Say something about yourself!
I was very surprised
they worked well together and made the characters come alive for me
no extreme reaction at all.
The premise of this book is a serious problem that has gotten nearly no widespread media coverage. Having it put in a novel of this quality will at least get those who follow Baldacci informed and perhaps that can make all of us more aware.
It was frightening to hear the thought that there was no problem getting more of this "product" as there would always be a glut of the poor.
Aside from that, this was a well written book with a plot that kept me wanting to continue reading.
The Story and plot lines
I'm starting to like the Female General
They played off each other, Orlagh used the same voice as the WV story, she should consider changing it a little
No, but as usual a great story line from Baldacci
The style, that makes baldacci unique - the attention to detail.
The second "hero", who is not american and not in the army.
They live among us but we barely notice.
Yes, I will listen to it again. Captivating.
John Puller, another great action hero.
Ron McLarty has a great voice.
This book started out as a teriffic book in part one. When part two rolled around it introduced useless characters who brought such an unrealistic story line I wanted to stop listening. I like the main character but Baldacci needs to work on a more believeable plot for him.
Cut the One Star General character. That story line is totally unbelieveable. No one with one minute of Military Service would believe this story line. This character along with the Columbian police lady totally ruined the story for me. Puller should be investigating military crimes not civilian crimes where he has no jurisdiction.
Puller rescue of the girl and her brothers from the 4 attackers.
Only the first half. Had I not invested so much time I would have stopped listening after the introduction of the General into the story. What a farce!
The book was great and Ron McLarty is the reason why.
Orlagh Cassidy SUCKS as a narrator. She takes a great book and makes it a so so book.
Baldacci uses her in most of his books and she SUCKS in all of them. She makes it a painfull listen.
All of the Balacci books are entertainning but Orlagh Cassidy performance make them medicore.
Mc Larty, Great, Orlagh Cassidy,painful
I no longer live in Worcester. I now live in Brooklyn, NY.
The first book in this series, Zero Day, was good background but not necessary to enjoy this story, #2. Yet again,as in other books, I find the sound effects unnecessary. If Baldacci continues this series, I hope he elaborates on the story of John's brother.
What a ride!!!
The foursome trying to get on the structure during a storm... I kept picturing One Star to slip off the edge when she slipped off...
Landry shooting blanks at Puller... busted!
When Diaz died in the battle...
Both Landry's and One Star's voice sounded too alike... if I missed the name, I had to rewind it to see which one he was performing... Great book... fast ride all along. Curious to know more about the brother in military prison...
I really would like to know why Bobby Puller is spending the rest of his life in Fort Leavenworth - no details in this book either. But John Puller Jr is the next Jack Reacher (the REAL Jack Reacher, not the pitiful substitute currently in the movies). Strong, tough, smart - and learning to live with his father, finally. Let's have more.
