    Identical, based loosely on the myth of Castor and Pollux, is the story of identical twins, Paul and Cass Giannis, and the complex relationships between their family and their former neighbors, the Kronons. The audiobook focuses principally on events in 2008, when Paul is a candidate for Mayor of Kindle County, and Cass is released from the penitentiary, 25 years after pleading guilty to the murder of his girlfriend, Athena Kronon.

    Jacqueline says: "Courtroom Drama Takes a Back Seat"
    "Identical is average.. at best"

    Story
    What would have made Identical better?

    The whole story lacked imagination. The Characters were cartoonish and lacked depth.


    What was most disappointing about Scott Turow’s story?

    Scott seemed to go out of his way to express his political leanings.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I thought the performance was okay provided the material.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really...

    (3006)

    The president knows it's a perilous, high-risk assignment. If he gives the order, he has the opportunity to take down a global menace, once and for all. If the mission fails, he would face certain impeachment, and the threats against the nation would multiply. So the president turns to the one team that can pull off the impossible: Will Robie and his partner, Jessica Reel. Together, Robie and Reel's talents as assassins are unmatched. But there are some in power who don't trust the pair.

    L.W. says: "Several Stories in One Book..So Good!"
    "Another page turner by Baldacci"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. The Target is the prefect summer read. Lots of action by Agents Robie and Reel makes for hours of fun and relaxation.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yep.Lots of twist and turns that keeps you guessing.


    What does Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hummm.. Not sure.. but the book was well narrated.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I listen to this on my daily talk. The time passed very quickly. Often I would walk an extra mile to see what happened next.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a fun audiobook. I recommend that anyone considering this book first listen to Baldacci's book The Hit.This book picks up where that one left off.
