Please go back to using Scott Brick. Many times I search for books that he narrates because I Know he reads only the best books. When I am troubled selecting a book I select based on the narrator. This guy was adequate but no one is better than Scott Brick
no but I allways buy uncensored books.
I wait for your books to come out but sorry I was disappointed.
not finished the book yet but if the guy was a big tech guy what was the deal with the floppy discs? what am I missing?
I've only listened to a couple of chapters so far but listening to Jonathan Marosz is driving me crazy. I love David Baldacci, in fact, I just finished Innocent and The Hit. It's just this narrator that I don't like
Good plot, compelling characters. Had it not been for these two things, I would have stopped listening after the first paragraph. The narrator seemed completely amaturish, pausing in the wrong places, inflection displaced throughout the entire reading. I felt like I was listening to my 10 year-old nephew read. I truly wish I had just purchased this one in print.
Really good plot and decent twists and story development. A little predictable and some of the characters were overdone.
NO, It was terrible all the way through. I will avoid his performances.
Fewer characters, less ridiculous premise and plot twists, better narrator
No - but, I'll be wary of buying more by Baldacci who has always been a favorite author of mine!
More inflection in the narrator's voice. It sounds as if he is reading a news report and drones on and on.
Definitely disappointed in this book and will attempt to return it, but I may have waited too long after purchasing it. Saved it for a vacation trip across the country before listening to it - big mistake!
I would recommend all Baldacci books but not with this narrator. The monotone is killing the story!
Using someone with no inflections in his voice
It was not time well spent. I had to listen to the entire first segment for it to even become interesting.
The most interesting aspect was what was the real reason for the plane crash; who did and why. The least interesting was Sydney's antagonists.
NO! It was one dimensional and uninspiring. Very wooden delivery.
Not really - well, maybe made for TV movie.
Baldacci has never disappointed until now. Granted, this was a a very outdated book. Technology described was state of the art in its day, but quite anachronistic today.
Not sure how to answer this...
No, and I have enjoyed other Baldacci books. This one just never connected for me.
Performance was fine
Looking at the time left, wondering if it would get any better.
I enjoy mysteries, science fiction, Stephen King, and some fantasy novels. Now and again I like a biography and a bit of history. No romance!
I would put Total Control in the top twenty audiobooks that I have listened to at this point. The author is one of my favorites and the story is exciting and well thought out.
There are many, but one that I can mention without spoiling the story for others is the moment when you begin to realize that one of the characters in the story is not who you have been led to believe they are. The reveal is very well done. The character's loyalty and their alliance is a nice twist.
There is a lot of action in this book and Jonathan Marosz is able to convey that with his reading. You feel like you are there rather than like someone is retelling it. He captures the excitement, suspense, emotion, and energy of what would be big action sequences if this were a film.
What lengths would you go to in order to secure a fortune and how many people would you consider expendable?
There is a character in this book who is entirely too self-sufficient, considering the description of their life prior to events in this story. While I enjoyed the action and the events in the story, I found it hard to believe that this particular character was able to do the things that he/she did during the course of the book. It made the story less entertaining once I realized that the author was going to allow this character to be so very kick-ass in spite of his/her background. It just didn't fit well with the events. Something in the character's background to make this possible for the read would have been nice, but it is still a very entertaining read.
This was a GREAT story but would have been MUCH better read by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy. I love Baldacci's stories but they really come to life with McLarty and Cassidy. I was Not at all impressed with Jonathan Marosz.
I really can't say
