Loved the characters and the story line. Lots of action and some romance...really enjoyed the book. My next credit will be used for another Baldacci.
This is a slower paced book by Baldacci. The story was interesting, enjoyable, and had some fun plot twists...but its pace was slow and the story didn't really hit its stride until late in the book.
A thick lawn, running water, and a tree to sit under. That's close to heaven!
John Puller Junior continues to amaze you throughout the story which is laced with mystery, humor, action and an ending to the case. I really loved the way this story was narrated.
John Puller Junior when he shows how much he wants to help the underdog while at the same time trying to solve his aunts murder, despite the fact that the police list her death as natural.
When he impressed the officer at Naval Intellagence with his steadfastness when the officer tries to call him on the mat.
I was especailly moved when he called the general for help and she said "Call Me Julie!"
You get into the mind of the main character quickly.
You don't want this guy thinking you are guilty of anything other than being stupid.
Keep the stories coming. I think this could go places.
Perhaps this deserves more than two stars for the story but --well, it's just a little over the top. I think the author got a little carried away. Even so, it was fun to listen to.
I'll buy a David Baldacci book without listening to the sample. The Forgotten was enjoyable and I had difficulty putting it down. If you enjoy Baldacci, you'll enjoy this story as well.
Made the characters not seem like superheroes
Did not care for characters
Asked what in the world Baldacci was thinking.
Can't believe I listened to book thinking it wouLd get better. It did not. Wasted my time.
Yes... Why? It is another great story by Baldacci.
The plot was pretty straightforward with only a few twists. It was the action that moved the story forward.
These two are so good that to pick a favorite is impossible they were all good.
A great book, a great story and great performances by McLarty and Cassidy!! The only thing that disturbed me and maybe it is just me, were the "sound effects" edited in to the narration. A goodly portion of the first chapter is immersed in some funky, quasi music (?) and then throughout there are annoying sound effects at the end of some chapters and even during the chapters. They were not bad enough to degrade the performance, again which was exceptional, but it was unnecessary. NOTE TO PRODUCER: Stop it already.
I am a big fan of Baldacci, and McLarty and Cassidy add great voices to this latest John Puller book. Puller is a typical Baldacci hero; strong, unbreakable, agile, smart and all-powerful. He is no nonsense and quick on his feet. Cassidy has plenty to do in this book, with two main female characters, both of whom are a match for John Puller. The story is action packed, complete with interesting and varied characters, and I am happy to plug in a Baldacci book and go along for the ride.
I am a retired high school computer teacher. After years of tech reading, I have given up reading for listening while I woodworking.
This is a great follow up to Zero Day. It will start fast and take you on a roller coaster ride with lots of curves and screams.
