    I finally got through “Long Road to Mercy,” and it is the worst book, of David Baldacci, that I have ever read! I have serious doubts that David wrote the book!!

    Finally read “Absolute Power” a couple of months ago; first time, I think, that I have ever liked the movie better than the book.🙍‍♀️

    Just read and struggled to finish ” Simple Genius”. A King & Maxwell book for which I have read the earlier books but, for me, this is rubbish. I realise it may annoy some of you but I found the plot confusing, mixed up and sections of the book…well, some parts of the plot are just dropped in and the reader is expected to accept and continue reading……not for me and he can do better

    The Winner, Absolute Power and Saving Faith are absolutely phenomenal, but I liked his books better before he got into the whole “series” thing.

    I’ve enjoyed the Oliver Stone books so much. Will there be another after Hell’s Corner?

    Reply

    • DealerDan: 10 years ago

      I’m sure there will be. It’s a very popular series – David just has other series of books as well as standalones he tends to like to write as well. Based on his publication schedule, I expect a new one to be out in the Fall, or early 2012.
