    What did you love best about Rain Storm?

    Well written and researched. Odd how someone could kill for a living and actually have true feelings and unquestionable ethics.

    Story
    (244)

    Not far from Washington, D.C., in a wooded area of Northern Virginia, a small house at the end of a gravel road serves a secret purpose. With its sophisticated security apparatus and hidden miniaturized cameras, it is being used by the FBI to interview one of the most important witnesses the agency has ever had, a young woman with an incredible story to tell. But a few people know about the secret meeting. And for them, a violent drama is about to begin.

    ABC says: "Missleading"
    "Not his best work"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Less faulty dialog. The childish back and forth wording during arguments between several lead characters was unrealistic


    What was most disappointing about David Baldacci’s story?

    The back ground story was good.


    What three words best describe Michael Kramer’s voice?

    He did well with what he had to work with.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Hesitation about trying another from the same Author. Most Baldacci's I have listened to or read have been solid. I had to look to see if it was a possibly ghost writer.

  • Sleepless: A Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 35 mins)

    Story
    (55)

    The world is in the grip of an epidemic of sleeplessness and one man will risk everything to find out what caused it. In his signature style of fast-paced action, outrageous violence, and graphically described scenes, we are tossed into a dramatic turbulence unlike anything you've ever read or heard.

    Pamela says: "an intriguing plot"
    "Really?"

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Nothing


    Has Sleepless turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes


    What about Ray Porter and Mark Bramhall ’s performance did you like?

    They were fine


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Waste of time


    Any additional comments?

    I bought this based on a couple good reviews by others. I like books of most styles but could never get into this story in any way. My rule is to stay at least 5 chapters just in case my interest picks up. I have only booted a book once after 5 in the last couple years and I listen to two books a month on average when I travel for work. I made it all the way through this book and wish I hadn't.
