Most audiobooks do not have sound effects. This has great ones. Hear the train going down the track and lots more I can't remember. Good plot with (mostly) nice characters. Good twist at the end, when we learn the true identity of one interesting character.
This is the only Baldacci I have read. The others sound too scary, based on the bookjacket text. This one is sweet and definitely not scary.
This is a story with HEART. I started to listen to it while I was painting a room. My husband joined me sometime after the first CD. When we stopped for lunch and then resumed painting, my husband asked "where is the story about the train?" So we both ended up listening to the story and we both liked it a lot.
I read some reviews from other sources that complained the story was not like the others that David Baldacci had written but since I haven't read any of his other books I really couldn't comment on that. All I know is that the book kept my interest and my husband's, and I will probably listen to the story again. I definitely would recomend this audiobook to anyone looking for a good story ....
