One good narrator and no SFX
I will pay more attention to the production next time but will try.
Just him. No second voice. No sound effects.
I could not finish it, it irritated me too much.
Good story. Good characters. I have not read a lot of Baldacci's books. I read 2 camel club books and I am 50-50 on them. Okay, but not dying to read more as I am with some other authors.
I will definitely look for more John Puller stories, however.
They were great. I don't believe I have listened to others done by them.
Story was good. Reader was good. But the sounds effects were unnecessary and distracting. I listen while driving. The initial opening sound effects had me turning off my stereo wondering if my car of the neighborhood was having problems.
Sound effects in movies are appropriate - they are appropriate for audio books.
I am glad I did not accept the critical thoughts of others and bought this book. I liked the sound affects which were perfect in my opinion and in the proper places.
This is the fourth book I have read by author -David Baldacci and the narrating team of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy was absolutely superb.
This reading was so close to 5 star that I had to give it a five star rating ( the first time I have)
Definitely going to read more. He is starting to be one of my favorite authors.
yes. Engaging story line and good character development.
Ron McLarty has done a great job reading the books before with no sound effects or female reader. I found these distracting and wish that he could have just read the book as is, himself. The story has enough integrity in itself not to be "enhanced" in these ways.
Yes, well written and important topic.
The will of the individual seeking his sister.
I wish she were more vocally versatile.
No, just interested.
The ending...a great way to wrap up the hard to hear story and realize that it could possibly still be not just fiction.
Orlagh Cassidy, really hit the voice of the General! Spot ON!
Baldacci, is top of my list in his story lines. Makes you really look at the world around you with different eyes.
Say something about yourself!
Unique Plot Twist Synonymous With Previous Baldacci Instant Classics. Highly Recommended Audio Download. Sound Effects Were Appropriate And Timed Exceptionally Well.
The John Puller series is action packed and the narrators are awesome! The special effects are also a great addition. I hope another Puller book will be forthcoming.
These two narrators work seamlessly together and their voices are so well matched. I hope to find many more books of their work together. Fabulous narrators!
The book is too long for one sitting but it is very hard to put down.
Overall a good book..........will probably go back and read the first one in the series. A bit impausible in spots.............a General participating in a "breaking and entering" to help out a friend????
Sound effects were annoying but most of all, the female voices were beyond irritating. Each one was worse than the last one. I have heard other narrations by Orlagh Cassidy where she is using her natural voice and they are fine......obviously she has a problem with multiple characters.
The synopsis of this book does not do it justice. I was very pleased with the content of this book and how good trumps evil. The characters were interesting and there were many twists and turns and for me a surprise ending.
Another satisfied Baldacci book reader.
