The first book in this series, Zero Day, was good background but not necessary to enjoy this story, #2. Yet again,as in other books, I find the sound effects unnecessary. If Baldacci continues this series, I hope he elaborates on the story of John's brother.
I will not continue the series. Odd is an intriguing, likeable character, but i do not lean towards the supernatural. Usually I am a serial reader but Odd's story is complete for me.
and those who like the old ways."IF not one of these, then you might find this story a little pointless.
While the narrators fit the story, it was hard to understand them at times, especially the woman. Was it "t-shirt" or "teacher, " for example. Usually the meaning is apparent, but sometimes there is confusion because you "hear" the wrong word.
The first part of the story was exquisite, but then too many characters were introduced making me wish for more about the original characters.
Once you start this one, do not plan to take a break for about 10 hours!
After I had gone to bed for the night I had to get up to listen to the last 20 minutes of the story....couldn't sleep until I knew the ending. I love Maggie's story. I am recommending this book to everyone I know. What a pleasure!
and Liz is a superhero. But she was believable. I was interested from beginning to end. An exciting listen.
ans I do not mean "lost" as in "fascinated."I mean "lost " as in couldn't follow the story.The writing style is rich with good character development, but I didn't connect with the main character. Not a book for someone looking for thrills and action.
Don't know why this isn't D.D. Warren #7. Probably because she is such a minor character, but it does fit in chronologically.However, it should be Tessa Leone #2.Too much happens to Tessa in that book that you should know about before reading this one.
I walked an extra 2 miles listening to the end of the story.....couldn't stop.
The narrator's voices are spot on.
you miss a dimension to Renko's character.
I picture the author writing at the computer with a paint brush stuck behind his ear. Smith paints with words!
I look at the fish counter in the store a whole new way after listening to this story.
An awful lot of this story happens BEFORE the beginning of this book.
or with his father.
I couldn't get past the strange feeling that the narrator sounded at times like George Burns.
Some aspects of the story are hard to buy into.
