    "Total Control"
    Where does Total Control rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Best book I have read in a long time. Could not put book down. Great job David.


    What did you like best about this story?

    You did not know who was the guilty person until the end. Kept suspense going in every chapter.

    Story
    "This is not narrated, but poorly read--ruins it"

    I was so looking forward to this Baldacci book--they are almost always so entertaining and engrossingly narrated. I don't know where they found this "narrator", but he is so monotonous and downright unbearable, I'm not sure I will finish the book--or if I do, I won't remember, as he certainly doesn't hold your attention. He reads as though faced with the daunting and boring task of reading a long book out loud quickly. His voice intonation seems always the same, and begins each sentence with a higher pitch and ends with a lower pitch. The story does not deserve this, as it would be worth listening to with a decent narrator. Scott Brick would have the reader totally engaged, but this guy is a great remedy for insomnia--puts you to sleep even if you're not sleepy. He also fails to characterize voices well, or at all, and it is difficult to distinguish between them, so they all run together. It is infuriating to wait list a book and eagerly look forward to it, then have it mind-numbingly presented.

    Th e story COULD be engaging, as it is a decent plot. Plane crash, industrial espionage, survivor struggle to uncover the plot. I haven't finished it, and don't know that I will--it doesn't hold my attention. It reminds me of someone being forced to read a very long book to a child, and just going through the motions, making it as uninteresting as possible, so the child will go to sleep. He succeeds--the monotony and lack of any discernible talent or characterization will definitely make you tune out.

    A lesser author maybe--but Baldacci? What were they thinking???

    I will probably prefer to read the written version of this, and not subject myself to the discomfort of trying to concentrate on this awful reading.

    I would NOT recommend it, even though I adore Baldacci. This reader does his work a terrible injustice.

    I do my gardening listening to Audible books and, at times, end up sitting on my gardening cart sobbing away, while hoping no one's looking

    "Can't finish"

    The performance is so-o-o boring I can't stand to keep listening. I don't know if story is dragging or if it's the narrator. Where's Ron or Scott?
