  • The Camel Club

    Story

    It exists at the fringes of Washington, D.C., has no power, and consists solely of four eccentric and downtrodden members whom society has forgotten. Their simple goal is to find the "truth" behind their country's actions.

    Alex says: "The Good, Bad, and the So-So"
    "Not up to Standard"
    Overall

    Camel Club isn't nearly as good as others by Baldacci. Narration was excellent. Political speeches became a little hard to take and seemed repetitious. If this is the only Baldacci you have read/listened, don't give up on other - many are much, much better.

    Story

    When scholars write the history of the world 20 years from now, and they come to the chapter "Y2K to March 2004", what will they say was the most crucial development? The attacks on the World Trade Center on 9/11 and the Iraq war? Or the convergence of technology and events that allowed India, China, and so many other countries to become part of the global supply chain for services and manufacturing?

    Patrick says: "Facinating, Scary and Repetitive"
    "Stick with the abridged version"
    Overall

    The first part of the book was an interesting summary of globalization but the latter part of the book became very preachy and opinionated. Grew quite tedious and repetitive.

    Story

    Peter Novak, one of the world's greatest men, has been kidnapped! Running out of time and hope, Novak's people turn to Paul Janson, legendary covert operative and assassin. Janson is retired, and nothing could lure him back - nothing except Peter Novak, who once saved Janson's life. "Ludlum's best since The Bourne Identity," raves Kirkus Reviews.

    Grady says: "Captivated me from the beginning"
    "Predictable Ludlum - but fun"
    Overall

    The plot was predictable and in Ludlum fashion lots of extraneous observations and material included which dilute the action and slow down the pace of the book. Despite that, a good listen and very well done narration. An abridged version might be even better.
