    The story is as "on the edge" as you can get in fiction book.... great fun


    What other book might you compare The Forgotten: John Puller, Book 2 to, and why?

    James bond 007 because he can do the impossible, that might just be possible..


    What about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance did you like?

    Ron has a strong convincing tone to his voice, Orlagh, has a great supporting role.


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

    It kept me awake, wanting to hear what happens next

    "Very good performance on a good to average book"
    What did you like most about The Forgotten: John Puller, Book 2?

    Good popcorn book, whilst not one of the authors better story it is definitely worth a listen when you want to be taken out of the humdrum, but do not want to engage your brain or emotions to any great extent - you will like it, but if you have any pretensions you'll probably hate yourself for doing so


    What other book might you compare The Forgotten: John Puller, Book 2 to, and why?

    As others have mentioned very similar in tone and texture to both vince Flynn and Lee Childs, not a bad thing in itself
    Characters can appear slightly one dimensional at times but the action is present, well thought out and scripted as with these other two authors
    The Undeafeatable hero, the nod to legality and the justice system, and then the complete disregard for both of the above, and then victory supplied at the end


    What about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance did you like?

    Initially the performance did seem slightly dry, but as the book progressed the use of the two person performance and the nature of the written word came together in an effective way which did help to raise the audiobook above what it could/should have been


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

    Not a book to be listened to for an emotional journey, a book to be heard when brain is turned off and you just want to be entertained


    Any additional comments?

    Worth a listen, and the author is definitely worth investigating esecially his earlier works, which to me are an improvemnt on his later stuff

    "A worthy successor"

    I enjoyed book 1 in the John Puller series and this one did not disappoint. You don't have to read them in order but it does help you understand the characters. David Baldacci writes a cracking thriller. The narration is excellent and I like the use of a female to voice the female characters

    "Kept me listening"
    Where does The Forgotten: John Puller, Book 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Up there near the top


    What other book might you compare The Forgotten: John Puller, Book 2 to, and why?

    Any Lee Child book but not quite as good


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Thought the narration was too American ..okay if you are American of course but a bit heavy for me...also not keen on the music effects that kept coming in


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

    Neither


    Any additional comments?

    Overall quite exciting, and I wanted to know how it ended. Glad I had listened to the first Puller book as it kept referring to things that happened in it

    "A typical American story"
    What did you like most about The Forgotten: John Puller, Book 2?

    My first Baldacci book, fairly well plotted


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

    It felt like a radio play


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No over a couple of weeks

    "Like Dirk Pitt but with too many weapons"

    Goof fast flowing tale, but though I can usually suspend belief the characters just had bullets bouncing off them all the way through. Fun, but I wont read it again, or any other of this author's books.

    "John Puller Rides Again!"

    If you like Action thrillers like Jack Reacher then you will enjoy these books. I read all sorts but find that books like this are best for me when running. As others have said John Puller is very much in the Jack Reacher mould, pretty indestructible and smart at taking out the bad guys. The two readers work really well and I enjoyed it.

    Whilst some snobs might say its not high brow fiction it isn't intended to be - its just really good escapism.

    "brilliant as usual"

    Love david baldacci. There is something special about his books. Ron mclarty makes this even better. His voice is very relaxing.



    Start from the beginning and work your way through his books im order. Some are linked to the next one. The maxwell and king series are brill!

    "Gripping"

    I love this books, great story, keeps me in tension and great narration. This story convinced me to buy two eBooks by Baldacci.

    The characters are full of life, interesting and link together very well.

    The story develops and is exiting along the way.

    A great book to listen if you enjoy action stories.
