I love David Baldacci, I am often on the wish list for one the minute I hear it is coming out and normally I devour it in a day or two. This one was different. I gave it 150 pages, but I couldn't give it anymore. I was bored. The action packed chapters were not here. It was cumbersome on its governmental jargon and I really did not care what happened. John Puller is not my favorite. It could have gotten better, but I think it would have sat for months in order for me to pick it up for more than one chapter at time.
This was an incredible read! I normally really dont care for military books but Mr. Baldacci has written one that I truly believe everyone would enjoy --- It took me a couple of days for really solid reading to get through it but, it was well worth it. Theres enough detail in the whole story to just grab you interest and hold your attention throughout the whole story! Ive read other books about John Puller by Baldacci and what I really, truly like is that each one can be read by itself, dont have to be read in order and theyre GREAT reads!
