I read all of Baldacci's books and always enjoy Ron McLarty's narration (Orlagh-not so much). As a long time Audible listener, I rarely listen to a sample; I read the book's reviews and decide on that. Going forward, however, I will listen to samples before purchasing because the sound effects in this book were too distracting to finish. A couple times I paused the book, pulled out my earbud and looked around, thinking the noise was something going on around me. I will borrow my friend's hard copy to finish the story; and I won't listen to another Audible book with sound effects.
I would have preferred McLarty narrating the entire book.
No, only the second time in many years I didn't finish an Audible book. Not the story and not Ron McClarty's narration, but the the distracting sound effects.
