Unpredictable except to know that Baldacci is always going to be unpredictable as to where he's going.
I enjoyed getting to know Agent Will Robie. He showed not only his stone cold ability to be superhuman in sparring, but he also gave us an emotional image within his mind and heart.
There were so many scenes to choose from that were action packed and thought provoking in this entire story.
The narration was excellent and the sound effects where exciting.
None so far but I will keep listening. lol
They were both excellent, great narration.
No, but this book was exciting from the beginning, very suspenseful.
I liked how the characters weaved in and out. I was not surprised of the relationship the leads developed. I thought the addition of the sound effects made the story better as did using two narators.
Always pretty well done
No to either question but it did keep me interested and I finished it in two days which is unusual for me.
As many others have stated, Orlagh Cassidy's narration is irritating and lackluster. The female characters sounded similar and were delivered in a whiny monotone that detracted from an otherwise good story. Dual narration and sound effects aren't necessary when listening to a gifted storyteller.
Baldacci is going to lose readers if Cassidy becomes representative of the women in his books! I don't usually write reviews, but this one is so poor it warrants an exception.
The Hit is a big hit. It has great characters that are defined and developed to continue the Roby series. It captivates from beginning to the end, a must read. I couldn't put it down and I hated it to end. Roby's character is well defined and made more human without taking away his edge. The plot was different, intense and riveting.
Ron McLarty is vintage as Baldacci's reader and Cassidy is growing on me. The editor have gotten the sound effects to fit well with the authors intent without being overbearing.
I wasn't sure how he would close it but but he blindsided me and without giving anything away was justify fitting and unusual. While I'd like another dose of The Camel Club, I'll take Roby a few more times.
OK but not as good as his books usually are. Good narrator.
Nothing stands out.
Not that I would watch.
I have always been a big David Baldacci fan starting with Absolute Power and since have read everything he has written. Unfortunately he has strayed a long way from his earlier books and this last one was really nothing but a lot of shooting and blowing things up. There was very little actual story and consequently I felt very little if anything for the characters. Now I don't mind a bit of violence as long as there is a good story that goes with it but come on, give us someone to care about!
I do realize there are some that like that sort of thing and I guess DB has decided to appeal to those people but I for one long for the stories of Oliver Stone, Absolute Power, Wish You Well, etc, etc.
The readers were quite good and the sounds impressive sadly, that's about the only good thing I can say about the book.
Listening to books is the way I separate from the stress of being an attorney. I enjoy fiction, mystery thrillers, an occasional romance, and books about cutting edge medicine and science. I was a History major so that is always interesting too.
Yes, but I cannot explain. It lacked "umph."
Hard to say again, because their voices were not distinctive enough between characters.
Yes, but not by much.
This book is for people who like a lot of action and sound effects.
I guess there is a plot line but it's all about the weaponry. I'd like more of a story and less ammo talk. I didn't even finish the book. I don't care if they all die.
Narration was spot on. Great voices.
The best part was the narration.
