    Story
    "repetitive and meandering"
    What disappointed you about The Finisher?

    The style of writing was laborious. The writer went over and over almost every point to the point of distraction.


    What was most disappointing about David Baldacci’s story?

    The story lacked any real pace and having read many different books by the same author (I did buy this book knowing it wasn't his usual genre) I wonder whether his style of writing had changed and he was aiming for a younger audience.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator tried hard but this only detracted from the story, in my opinion, making the character whiny.


    You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Sorry, none that I can think of other than maybe it will appeal to a younger reader.


    Any additional comments?

    I went in open eyed and having read many of David Baldacci's books, I knew that this was entirely different genre. I would say that, based on this, that if you have read any of this author's previous books don't expect this one to be anything like as good.

    Story
    "Great book for ages 10+"
    If you could sum up The Finisher in three words, what would they be?

    This a wild mixture of Fantasy, science fiction and myth.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I was surprised by the plot I would have expected an action packed adventure instead it was more of a dystopian type novel. One thing I found inconsistent was the use of made up names mixed in with real but once you get used to it it's ok. If you listen to this along with reading the book you may find some of the swear words used are different and a few extra words are added on occasion during discussions between characters, not sure why the differerences usually it's a difference between US and UK English but this didn't seem to be the case.
    I would of liked less swear words and while he tends to used the same ones throughout I do think its excessive. If the reader is younger than 10 you may want to check the use of words to ensure its suitable.


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The narrator gives a good representation of the character that captures her personality and so you feel sad when the character feels sad. She also makes a great attempt at distinguishing the voices of the other characters.
