The sound effects and the off/on music under. This is supposed to be an audio book not a dramatization movie without visuals. I haven't even gotten to the addition of the second reader. I doubt I'll make it that far. I love Baldacci. But this book is ruined from the start.
An audiobook that has reviews to warn me if it is over-engineered so I can save my money and time.
Can't comment on Orlagh - probably won't make it that far into the book.
Anger and disappointment. I was expecting another riveting Baldacci story and received a dramatization that is so over-engineered as to be rendered un-listenable.
To David Baldacci - Don't let the producers do this to your audiobooks in the future. I enjoy your writing, enjoy your books, and only have time to listen to audiobooks, not to sit down and read. I would love it if you could get someone to reproduce this book with one reader and no extra sound-effects, music or other distractions.
I loved this book and am looking forward to the next two. Yes, it is predictable, very much like the Three Sisters Trilogy. But I like predictable in our constantly changing world. It took me a while to get used to the reader, and another reader with more variation would probably make it better.
But it has what I love, rediscovery of magic, horses, and a little formula romance on the side. And horses, did I mention horses? And magic. For me - a great read - er listen.
