Audible Editor Reviews

In Day of Doom, the legendary struggle between the Cahill family and the menacing Vespers finally comes to a head. A virtuoso performance from theater and voice actor David Pittu enhances the action, drama, and emotion as brave Cahill siblings Amy and Dan figure out Vesper One's terrifying endgame. It's up to Amy and Dan to stop the Vespers - or watch the world come to an end. Fast-paced and thrilling, the startling conclusion to this popular series is a must-listen.

    "GOOD ENDING"

    This last book of the Vespers vs Cahills was a surprise to me. New it had to end, but the ending, sort of floored me. Very good though The whole series was good.

    "Not as bad as I thought"
    Any additional comments?

    After reading other reviews I almost didn't get this book. To make the collection complete, I did. This isn't as bad as some of the reviews make it out. Baldacci doesn't kill off everybody. Dan is back to being Dan and I liked that. It is a good finish and the right prevails which is what is supposed to happen. It is worth the read.

    "Awesome"

    David Baldacci recovers the storyline from a disappointing book 5. Fantastic action, lots of unexpected twists and a truly mesmeric crescendo in a dramatic finale. As always David Pittu puts in another stunning performance. Bravo.

    Story
    "Mixed Feelings On This One"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    As a standalone book, no. As part of the series, yes. With reservations.


    What could David Baldacci have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    A bit more depth, less rush. The historical aspect that made the previous books so enjoyable was virtually absent. What there was felt like a token effort. I'm not sure what constraints Mr. Baldacci was working under and how they affected the end product, but I wouldn't have minded a longer story that took the time to develop things more. There were other events in the story that seemed either token or...well, convenient...but as I can't go into those without giving away plot details, I'll refrain.


    Which character – as performed by David Pittu – was your favorite?

    Amy. And David Pittu has done an outstanding job with both series. Each of his characters is distinct and original.


    Do you think Cahills vs. Vespers, Book 6: Day of Doom needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, I think reactions, emotions, and consequences need to be demonstrated. Perhaps more ebooks by Clifford Riley to bridge the gap between now and the start of the next series this fall.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm puzzled as to why Chapter 40--which is in the ebook version I have--is missing from the audio version. The narration goes directly from the end of Chapter 39 to bonus material and literally left me hanging. It was very jarring and disappointing. I thought I'd accidentally hit my player and advanced forward. Can or will a corrected version be made available?

    "Disappointing..."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Personally, I felt this book (especially where it is in the series) needed a different author, a different ending and better consistency of characters. Baldacci douldn't seem to effectively juggle the number of characters involved the series, so he either re-wrote them, killed them or created new ones to fit his whim. Did he even read the series before writing this book?.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I must be missing a chapter or or two... The ending, to me, felt rushed and left me scratching my head trying to figure out what Vesper kidnapped the author and wrote the final book! It failed in consistency of characters, continuity of storyline and lack of new character development. Too many unnecessary holes were created/left, not in anticipatory way either.


    Which character – as performed by David Pittu – was your favorite?

    David Pittu, was the saving grace of this book. He has been the one thing that remained most consistent through the series. Thankfully, he is gifted and brought the characters to the best light he could despite the author's limitations. For this book, I would have to say Pittu's performance best served Dan.


    Do you think Cahills vs. Vespers, Book 6: Day of Doom needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes, hopefully to correct the fallout of Baldacci's work. Scholoastic already announced another 39 Clues series later this year.


    Any additional comments?

    Also this book didn't seem to have nearly the depth of historic element as the rest of the series. The item used in this story contained less material than the Smithsonians page dedicated to it. That was one thing I always appreciated about the series, walking away with a greater appreciation/curiousity of history. No mystery for us to solve here... more like riding a train that stops in the tunnel... Leaving us in the dark ;-o

    "Ruined"
    If you could sum up Cahills vs. Vespers, Book 6: Day of Doom in three words, what would they be?

    A disappointment


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Baldacci again?

    Never


    Have you listened to any of David Pittu’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, everything Audible has in stock.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Baldacchino ruined a delightful series


    Any additional comments?

    Baldacci obviously had other things on his mind while writing this book. I am disappointed and frustrated scholastic employed him to write the final story of this wonderful series. It would give me great joy if a different writer rewrote a final book.
