By far the worst read I have ever purchased from Audible. After finishing a le Carr? novel, which I enjoyed tremendously, I thought I would continue in the spy genre so I purchased this New York Times bestseller. Suffice it to say that it read like the wet dream of a 15 year old video game aficionado undergoing a testosterone storm. However, the language and plot structure were far below the level of most 15 year-old authors. The icing on the cake was the narrator's childish sense of irony and his ridiculous repertoire of accents.
I was disappointed. The story was predictable and formulaic. The characters were one dimensional stereotypes with the depth of a cartoon. Although I understand the requirement for suspension of disbelief as it applies to a thriller, Baldacci goes too far with his septuagenarian hero tuning into a twenty something killing machine at will.
