    "Excellent read!"

    Liked the suspenseful plot, lots of twists and turns!! Couple of events were far-fetched, but not enough to matter much. Liked the ending. It was believable!

    Story
    "I never have been disappointed by D. Baldacci's writing."

    A challenge with excitement driving one to reach the denouement while still being loathe of missing anything . Thank you.
    J. Marosz is a worthy narrator.

    "Give Marosz a chance"

    I thoroughly enjoyed listening to Jonathan Marosz' narration of Total Control. I almost didn't purchase the book because of negative reviews about the narrator. I'm glad I purchased the book. As soon as I began listening to the story, I forgot the negative reviews and enjoyed Marosz' skilled performance. Also, David Baldacci consistently creates entertaining plots that intrigue and challenge the listener (reader).

    "Best story to date"

    Many a night I would sit in the driveway listening to the remaining chapter before I went into the house. Great story and enjoyed how you tied all the pieces together.

    "Not great"

    Not bad. Little far out. Somewhat disconnected. White horse was almost late. Not realistic but ok.

    "Riveting story!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found Sidney Archer to be intelligent, strong, & able to persevere with whatever she was thrown. I'm glad she wasn't a weeping willow who fell apart when the wind blew. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone. On to the next one.

    "Good story"

    The reader is a serious distraction. His style reminds one of Greg Gutfeld's sardonic reading of his monolog on Red Eye or his commentary on The Five. The Story itself is interesting, quite a few twists and turns.
