Thrilling and entertaining

This book was such a great read. The characters were so developed and interesting and the story was full of twists and turns. David Baldacci never disappoints with his writing. "The Camel Club" was an 'edge-of-your-seat' novel. It was great for an escape.

Poliitcal correctness gone wild

An absolutely unbelievable plot with characters more thinly cartoonish than Disney's Cars. I actually like conspiracy theory books whether they're destined to paint the left or the right as nutbars. This book, which clearly puts the neocons in the crosshairs, rings so hollow that it may have broken bells for miles around. Painting the Secret Service as a collective group of inattentive and incompetent morons just doesn't work. Throw in a crew of Islamic idealists (not terrorists) with the skills of the Mossad, technology of the US, and precision execution of timetables that would make Mussolini proud and you have one very silly book. BUT THERE'S MORE (as they say on TV)....a group of lefty DC-perma-protesters who turn out to be the brightest and the bravest of the bunch. Get outta here! You want GOOD political spy/conspiracy from the left-hand viewpoint? Read anything by John LeCarre. Baldacci should be ashamed of this effort.

    Okay, But About 100 Pages Too Long

    This story of a high-level terrorist plot moves along pretty slowly until the last quarter of the book, when the tale's adrenalin finally kicks in. That's too long a wait, though, with so many characters it can be confusing, and all of it very talky. I confess I skipped entire sections of dialogue between two characters in a completely superfluous love story. I really began to wonder if Mr. Baldacci's editor had been sleeping on the job! The premise of the story is intriguing, though - it lends itself to a faster-paced, slicker novel, and it was disappointing that much of the story seemed to sink under its own weight of words.

    Mixed feelings

    After 2/3 through the book, I finally couldn't put it down. Too many main characters and not enough character development. Overall all, the book left me wanting more, but only because it didn't give quite enough. Still a decent read.

    Purgatory

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. However, it took too long to get things moving. The first 100 pages seemed to contain nothing but the character's introductions. Once past this, the book starts to pick up and the last couple hundred pages were reasonably exciting.
