Not my favorite but really good
How the second part of the book became really interesting and fast pace
If there was another narrator for this book, I might have been able to finish it. But the narrator was so bad, that I couldn't even finish chapter 2.
I love David Baldacci, but I will definitely pay attention to the listener reviews before I purchase again.
It would have been better if the narrator wasn't reading it like it was his first time seeing the book. It was very monitone, and the same tempo no matter what was happening. The narrator needed to put some feeling into it.
I don't know. Like I said before, I couldn't even finish chapter 2.
I greatly enjoy audio books and have been more than pleased with Audible, but if this would have been the first book I have ever purchased, it would have also been my last. Thankfully, I know that Audible has way better to offer.
Please go back to using Scott Brick. Many times I search for books that he narrates because I Know he reads only the best books. When I am troubled selecting a book I select based on the narrator. This guy was adequate but no one is better than Scott Brick
no but I allways buy uncensored books.
I wait for your books to come out but sorry I was disappointed.
not finished the book yet but if the guy was a big tech guy what was the deal with the floppy discs? what am I missing?
I've only listened to a couple of chapters so far but listening to Jonathan Marosz is driving me crazy. I love David Baldacci, in fact, I just finished Innocent and The Hit. It's just this narrator that I don't like
Good plot, compelling characters. Had it not been for these two things, I would have stopped listening after the first paragraph. The narrator seemed completely amaturish, pausing in the wrong places, inflection displaced throughout the entire reading. I felt like I was listening to my 10 year-old nephew read. I truly wish I had just purchased this one in print.
Really good plot and decent twists and story development. A little predictable and some of the characters were overdone.
NO, It was terrible all the way through. I will avoid his performances.
Fewer characters, less ridiculous premise and plot twists, better narrator
No - but, I'll be wary of buying more by Baldacci who has always been a favorite author of mine!
More inflection in the narrator's voice. It sounds as if he is reading a news report and drones on and on.
Definitely disappointed in this book and will attempt to return it, but I may have waited too long after purchasing it. Saved it for a vacation trip across the country before listening to it - big mistake!
I would recommend all Baldacci books but not with this narrator. The monotone is killing the story!
Using someone with no inflections in his voice
It was not time well spent. I had to listen to the entire first segment for it to even become interesting.
The most interesting aspect was what was the real reason for the plane crash; who did and why. The least interesting was Sydney's antagonists.
NO! It was one dimensional and uninspiring. Very wooden delivery.
Not really - well, maybe made for TV movie.
Baldacci has never disappointed until now. Granted, this was a a very outdated book. Technology described was state of the art in its day, but quite anachronistic today.
Not sure how to answer this...
No, and I have enjoyed other Baldacci books. This one just never connected for me.
Performance was fine
Looking at the time left, wondering if it would get any better.
