It was captivating. I almost believed there was a Rembrandt out there. The story was really held your interest, and it was believable. Great job. I usually listen to my books in the mornings when I am taking my 5 mile walk. I found myself not being able to wait till the next morning... I had to listen as I worked around the house. The narriator, (Phil Gigante) was excellent as well. Bottom line.... I really enjoyed the book.
I found the first half repetitive and slow. I was waiting for something to happen. Finally the second half started getting interesting and finally the last quarter was intriguing.
Sorry... I finished it because I had to.
This is the one book I can say I would have listened to from start to finish. The naration was perfect nd the story was gripping. i loved it.
If you have a son, daughter, friend or colleague who is working or in a management or leadership role, Powell's words of his experiences are well worth listening to. He confirms some of the good things you have seen, and he offers tidbits you can use as a leader or follower. They are not individual snippits of leadership behaviors....they are snippits all tied together. I love the way he wrapped them around actual situations.
I couldn't stop listening. I walk in the morning and the book got me up and out anticipating what was going to happen next. You're gonna love the story.
The story was typical Baldacci: Intriguing, suspenseful, complex and it moved. I love the new character(s). I look forward to more.
Roby: A Balducci character
Julie: Hope he keeps her in the stories
Vance: She was straight and tough
That's unrealistic, but I walk 5 miles every morning and this motivated me to get out there.I have the books in my GPS so I listen to it every time I walk and every time get in the car...even if it is a short run to the grocery store.
Loved the book
The story was complex; the situation was current and believable and the performances were outsianding.
No favorite character. Their roles were all so importat and well described. Loved the main character and the relationship he had with his brother.. The female local cop was great..... It all fit together very well.
They read it so well, I didn't want to stop listening. Good for them that they had such a good book to read....but good for David that he had two readers who made his book come alive.
Read it...you'll see.
I am not good at that kind of thing.....
I listened to this on my 5-mile daily walks and in the car and while washing dishes.... I cpldn't wait to get up in the morning to start my walk....just so I could listen.Good bood...good readers
Yes. I could relax and hear parts that I missed because I was anticipating. However, I didn't like the ending, so maybe I wouldn't.
The person who was executed. She was a good person
Time. I listen to the books when I do my 5 mile walk in the morning and when I am driving and when I am washing dishes.
I thought passing it off to different authors was masterful. Did they end it the way it was outlined or did each take it where they wanted and the next person had to pick it up from there? Interesting...but I didn't like the ending. Too easy. I would have put a twist on it and had her come back...meaning she was never executed.
This was awful. I never finished it and I rarely put a book down. It was sooooo slow. It took 10 minutes of nonsense description for a person to enter a room and sit down. There were times I forgot why the person went somewhere because the minusha was so unnecessarially detailed that I got frustrated waiting for something to happen. I have no idea how it ended or what happened....I barely got past the middle of part I. Don't bother with this one. It was terrible. (At least the part I read was terrible)
I didn't want it to end. I was captivated by the story . The book moves from beginning to end. The courtroom scenes were so descriptive, you thought you were there. I highly recommend the book, especially if you like legal dramas.....and twists in storylines. Enjoy.
