Not even Scott Brick can make dramatic a story as silly as this. Skip this one.
It was a great performance, so I believe the audiobook has its singular charms
The town whore was an interesting minor character
I've heard enough of this series that he IS Virgil Flowers
Without giving anything away, I enjoy the "regular guy" side of the main character
The interplay of this books main character and and the related series with Lucas Davenport is an added aspect that is for some reason quite enjoyable
Imagining the otherness of extraterrestrials along with the similarities
The explanation of how our sense of mathematics is related in part to our anatomy. Maybe not so much a great scene but a curious insight
God is real and not what you think
I applaud the effort. It is hard enough to try to make science fiction seems plausible. Trying to add god into the mix would seem wholly unworkable. I think this is well done in that regard.
The only thing that saved this performance was Scott Brick's reading. The author seems to have written a story of silly one dimensional idiots who eventually morph into two dimensional goofs. If the Secret Service, FBI, CIA and politicians are this stupid there is little hope for the country.
Love the genre, but I am embarrassed when the characters are this petty and silly.
Scott Brick is a welcome voice and an excellent narrator but there is only so much he can be expected to do with this flimsy tale
Stephen King can be trusted to take you to the edge of the chasm of hell and then drop you in. And then miraculously bring you home.
The sympathy I came to feel for the evil ones, The True Knot.
Typically I love Baldacci and McLarty but the story was so cliched. I imagined that Baldacci wrote it on a dare to be trite.
Yes, but my impression of him has gone way down. I would be very choosy.
Ron rocks, as always
It attempted to answer the question of how many bad guys would make the mistake of given our heroine one last word.
Goofy premise, absurd plot, ridiculous details.
I felt like I was allowed inside an amazing secret society.
Whether I loved these individuals or not, I had a new appreciation for the sheer terror the office of President must often present.
His reading brings a lyrical timing to the prose much like Sinatra did for a song.
Better character development of Jacob
Art of Fielding
Better for comedy
The legal thriller aspect had some minimal attraction for me. However, that is at the heart of my criticism. This book is not certain what it wants to be. Not a legal thriller. Not a love story. Not a coming of age saga. Basically, I did not think it was much of anything.
I enjoy Scott Brick and this author can occasionally turn a phrase, but overall I would have rather saved the credit.
I seriously wanted another Odd Tomas book. Unfortunately, I should have been willing to wait until Mr Koontz had the time to develop a more reasonable story. The character and the tale are stretched in ways rather unimaginable to the Odd Thomas we found in the first 3 books. Certainly the character and the narrator are enjoyable. However, if the first story of the series were this weak and uninspired I doubt there would be a reason to generate a follow up book.
