Baldacci is an inconsistent writer. Some books are great and others are poor. This was poor... a slow and boring pace with too much "filler".
Usually like all Baldacci writes but this one was not as good as his usual. Hung in and read it all wasn't one of my favorites
I love David Baldacci books although this wasn't one of his best. It was a little drawn out but it still had some good twists and turns that kept you reading to the end.
Read pages 1-10 then skip to 20 pages till the end. Nothing happens in between. Very long book.
Decker is an unlikeable idiot savant as portrayed in this book. The plot is a bit convoluted and contrived and the likable characters are given little to do but be amazed at Decker and his lack of social skills. The ineptitude of all government agencies is the recurring theme of Baldacci yet he gets all these geniuses to work for these inept agencies
The Fix is the third in David Baldacci's "Amos Decker" series. While I would not say this is Decker at his best, I would have to agree that Baldacci has spun a fine tale. The novel starts with two deaths - a murder and a suicide and proceeds on with more violence. As in the previous two books in this series, Decker does most of the figuring out. There are some loose ends which left me wondering if Baldacci has lost his touch but all in all a readable and enjoyable book.
A good story...especially for those familiar with DC landmarks. A bit drawn out...but a good surprise at the end. Skip a few chapters and go there.
A seemingly good plot, made less interesting by the author's frequent summation of what happened, his frequent referral to Amos's unfortunate past experiences, his use of inappropriate slang and banal dialogue, and his many explorations of possible reasons for what happened. It's like reading the author's stream of consciousness trying to figure out, as he writes, how to solve the mystery he has created, explain the relationships between characters, and provide explanations for their actions. Each chapter ends with the prospect of new information coming into light so you want to keep reading despite his irritating writing style. The action finally comes towards the end when the author has figured out how to end the story.
As a great fan of Baldacci, I felt let down by this book. Too drawn out with details and filler.
Lots of plot twists and turns. Amos Decker is an unlikely hero of this series. He brings a dimension of human frailty and sharp analysis to the FBI cases he traces. A fun read.
