This was one of her better ones. She's back! Like the other reviewers, I wish it was a longer story.
GREAT story line. Wonderful characters. . . loved them all! The narrator is wonderful. I loved this book. I am a huge fan of Baldacci and have been from the beginning. Only recently I have also gotten into Teen Fiction because it is about the only clean thing out there. I was pleased that as usual-- he hit it out of the park. If you don't like teen fiction or find it beneath you--this is not the book for you. Baldacci is an excellent author and of course it is not like his other books. But it is outstanding for its genre. Every bit as good as anything I've read by Orson Scott Card. I hope he continues and doesn't get discouraged by the comments of his loyal fans of his mystery genre.
The dueling scenes where Vega wins by sheer determination and being smarter than her opponent .
Love her voice. I enjoy her series of Molly Brown. However, at first I was afraid she was going to make every man sound like an idiot like she does in that series. But she did a better job as she went on.
Nah. It was just fun and kept me going and wanting more.
I didn't think I would enjoy an entire story told from the dark side, but it explained so much!! Can't hardly wait for Winter!!! Why can't authors as good as this write a 20 book collection . Instead of only 5??!! Best story I've read in years!!! Maybe ever!
I adore this series and having a short novella to keep me going between books is lovely! I hope she writes more back story shorts like this! If she could do one every month or so it would suit me fine.
I remember reading one of her books 20 years ago. Now I don't understand why I didn't read more! This was a delightful book. I loved each character! The story was a winner too! No swearing. No sex. I even liked the reader. . . though I am excited to listen to the next gal who has rave reviews. This one did not sound like a 32 year old woman. She sounded like a 62 year old woman. I'm glad I have a whole series to go through now!!
It was slow moving. I did not appreciate the cursing. I don't see any reason to include the Lord's name taken in vein. ever. If you are in to deep characterization this is the book for you. I didn't like any of them though. I started skipping chapters and listening in on the next to see if I had missed anything. I never did, so I gave up.
Story was entertaining. Not predictable. But I hate the steriotypical african-american who uses the "F" bomb as a noun, verb and over used adjective. He was not a main character showing up all the time , so I plowed through. This is another." NOT for the soccer mom" book.
Probably not. Not in to legal thriillers. I'll stick to Grisham who doesnt use foul language though.
Only if I have to. I realize Scott Brick cant read them all...
Like what???? Only check out my authors better
It was a good story--amazingly good; BUT the language was terrible. The "F" word was used way too much for my taste. You would not want kids in the car when listening to this. I really hated that part. I am the mom-taxi service and I started listening to audio books in the car because I spend so much time there. But this one was something the kids could not ignore. I bought it because of the story and the length of time it takes to read/listen. I didn't want it to end too fast like Patterson's books do. but it is taking me forever to get through it just because I have to turn it off as soon as anyone else gets into the car. It really isn't worth it. I wish they would invent "Clear Play" for audiobooks and then it would be a perfect book in everyway!!
Probably not because of his language. I LOVE Baldacci for that very reason. He tells a great story and not so much bad language and not so much steamy sex.
any. He made the characters come alive. Scott Brick is excellent!!!!
Yes. Make it PG-13 though
