Radio and TV boy.... And loves to listen to Audible
Puller once again gets himself tied up in a situation that seems impossible to find a way out of alive.
The first of the John Puller series.
Intense suspense, and a vivid feeling of exactly what these characters should sound like.
I couldn't stop listening... It's 4am, and now I can finally sleep!
I barely made it thruogh thhis book.. The sound effects drove me crazy. guns banging, bodys splashing, etc. Not only were the sound effects annoying but they were very poor also.
The story and descriptions had so many loopholes that I wanted to hang myself in one of them.
Definitely a close second
There are too many memorable moments to pick just one.
The narrators are superb. I have enjoyed many books and if the narrator is boring it makes the novel boring. I have been having a terrible time listening to the lastest Patricia Cornwell books because of the reader.
Some parts brought a few tears to my eyes.
Worth a listen!!! Can't wait for another John Puller novel.
This may be my own personal taste, but I think special effects (noises and sounds simulating gunshots and blunt trauma, among others) is simply distracting. This was an over-produced book. More is not better. Just read the book please. Also, I prefer one good narrator rather than trying to cobble together two. Again, over-produced. The story was rather simple, the dialogue mundane and the characters unidimensional, but I did listen to the entire book.
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.
