A slow start, entertaining, Reader was great. Fun book
I don’t think I can get through this book. It is so slow and boring. I love the John puller, will Robbie and memory man books but this one is snoresville. Nothing against the narrator but I don’t like him either
DB often uses a female and male to offer a more clear perspective. I have listened to about 7 of his books and this is my least favorite.
Week, I have read these books but it was so enjoyable to be busy and just listen. In the 17 plus hours, I got a lot done and opened up a few Ears to the World of Audiobooks.
First Book was slow to get into and narrator was not dynamic. Second book is much better and narrators are better. Third book is good.
All three of the books were very good. The characters had great substance to them and all added to the theme of being on a team, each one had a unique characteristic that they brought to the table.
I must admit that I was a little overwhelmed in the beginning of the Camel Club because I felt that too may characters were being introduced all at once. It was a little difficult to figure out a character's significance or relevance to the story before another character was being introduced. It was name,occupation, personality quirks, physical tendencies and then all over again....Name,occupation, personality quirks, physical tendencies. By the third character introduction I was like who was the first guy again? But once I pushed through that part the story line started unfolding and the amount of characters didn't seem so cumbersome.
I realize that quite a bit of time goes between each book but if it is at all possible to have the same narrator do the additional book in the series that would be awesome. I just felt like from the Camel Club to the Collectors that the character Reuban changed ethnicities and from the Collectors to Stone Cold the character Caleb might have changed his sexual orientation. Listening to them back to back, one is able to pick up on little things like that.
Overall the three books were very entertaining. We listened on a road trip and now my husband is hooked, I don't ever think he'll question how much I am spending again! I look forward to listening to more of David Baldacci's writings.
I had read the Camel Club in hard cover some time ago. It was interesting to listen to it again. The story was great and moved quickly. There was a lot of "food for thought" about the working of government agencies. The characters were likeable. It was worth listening to and I enjoyed it.
