King and Maxwell | [David Baldacci]

King and Maxwell

It seems at first like a simple, tragic story. Tyler Wingo, a teenage boy, learns the awful news that his father, a soldier, was killed in action in Afghanistan. Then the extraordinary happens: Tyler receives a communication from his father...after his supposed death. Tyler hires Sean and Michelle to solve the mystery surrounding his father. But their investigation quickly leads to deeper, more troubling questions. Could Tyler's father really still be alive? What was his true mission? Could Tyler be the next target? Sean and Michelle soon realize that they've stumbled on to something bigger and more treacherous than anyone could have imagined.

    Story
    "When did Siri start narrating audio books?"
    What aspect of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance would you have changed?

    Were they even in the same room together when they recorded this? There is no chemistry between the two. McLarty is fantastic but Cassidy has no range of emotion, she seriously sounds like my gps.

    Would you consider the audio edition of King and Maxwell to be better than the print version?

    Classic VBaldacci that held our interest from the first word through our 1250 mile, 2 and a half day dive to Florida.

    "Smash hit"
    What made the experience of listening to King and Maxwell the most enjoyable?

    It was like watching the TNT series. I loved the narration and sound effects.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. Every time I thought I had it figured out something new popped up. This was my first read and listen to a Baldacci novel and I plan on picking up more King & Maxwell.


    Which character – as performed by Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy – was your favorite?

    Edgar it was just like the actor on the show.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No just held me in suspense until the end.


    Any additional comments?

    I will be buying more.

    The story overall

    Story
    "Couldn't finish due to annoying narration"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Enjoyed this series in the past, so I will read the book. The male/female narration in the same conversation is horrible (forgot about that on the last book!) Ron McLarty and Scott Brick did fine with the earlier books on there own.


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

    Didn't get there


    Would you be willing to try another one of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performances?

    Not in tandem - performance was so stilted - like a high school play rehearsal - surely recorded separately - it undermined the close relationship depicted in previous reads. More like bickering teens in faux drama YA novels!


    Do you think King and Maxwell needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Will have to read to see.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm returning this one, and will remember to avoid male/female narration in the same conversation. (works in a Gone Girl, dual narrative, but not here).

    Story
    "Female voice is annoying"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Basic entertainment while driving was okay. Not as fine as other Baldacci Books


    What did you like best about this story?

    Familiarity with author and McLarty is what I enjoyed. Topic information was interesting and important to consider some underlying truths.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The woman was annoying


    Do you think King and Maxwell needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No. The interplay between their personalities is now bickering and mundane. Baldacci is really lacking the smart mix of tension and intelligent communication that mixed gender partners rely on for excellent story.


    Any additional comments?

    Give it up Orlagh Cassidy and get a day job!

    "Surprisingly pleased -"

    At the beginning I was unsure if I was going to like this but I was surprised overall. I really like both of the narrators, they have done many David Baldacci books that I have listened to from Audible. This story had many twist and turns, very intertwined. I listen on my daily commute and it was so good I didn't want the commute to end each day! King and Maxwell make a great pair. Their shared history adds many interesting aspects to the story. So as not to be a spoiler I will say the last few chapters were crazy good! I hope there are more adventures planned for K&M.

    "Meh."

    I always have high expectations when it comes to Baldacci. He's awesome almost always. This story was just ok for me. I may have liked it better if it were read by Scott Brick. Ron McLarty sounds different than a few years ago. I actually listened to most of it at double speed because he was reading so slow.

    "Ruined by the narration."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I would suggest they read it instead.


    Would you recommend King and Maxwell to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yes. Love the series in general and previous audible experiences with these books has been much more satisfactory.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A single narrator is much better. Different readers interacting is distracting and slows the narrative. It was more like listening to a TV show. Please leave the sound effects to the listeners imagination as well.


    Any additional comments?

    Go back to the single reader format and skip the sound effects! I want to feel as if I read the book, not listened to a show.
