      Ok, this one is weird What I really like about the series is the personality building of the MCs.What I strongly dislike is the fact that most of the plotlines are between the POTUS and some villainous person of either Muslim or Slavic ethnicity And the actions is basically either POTUS ordering unsanctioned killing of the said villain or the reverse is underway It makes me think euphemistic much It makes me wonder, what the hell, is there some shortage in original thriller story ideas I think I [...]

      The two previous Robie and Reel novels were a step above much of what Baldacci had done in the past, but this one took a step back My thought is that Baldacci put too much into the book, one separate crisis after another fighting their superiors, fighting the North Koreans, fighting neo Nazis, back to fighting the North Koreans, and on top of all of that spending a lot of time inside the workings of North Korea While all of it was interesting it was just too much for one book We learned so much [...]

      Will Robie Jessica Reel, master assassins, are backon a super secret mission together The Target, the 3rd book in David Baldacci s Will Robie Series begins with Will Robie, back in Washington DC and receiving a medal for his successful mission in Syria.Will and Jessica have been given a new and very secret mission but before they receiving the details of it, both are sent to The Burner Box, a CIA training facility in North Carolina to be tested if they are capable of carrying it out But they bel [...]

      Yet another established writer fails This is puerile rubbish, cliche riddled, clumsy, amateurish If it was the first effort of a self published teen it still wouldn t be excusable or acceptable The characters are unbelievable, the dialogue and responses ludicrous, the stuff of comics, not mature writers The writer has his protagonists doing things not realistically possible in the first few pages Disarming and pulling down the pants of experienced street thugs before any of them can react or res [...]

      I m not giving any of the Will Robie books 5 stars until he gets laid by someone he doesn t later have to assassinate

    6. Rizwan says:

      I don t remember the last time a book almost brought me to tears, and an espionage action thriller no less, that s saying something The book had quite a few problems storywise, but in the end the perfect characterization and hearttouching, heartwrenching developments and ending covered all of that and then some Just that hollowness I m feeling right now after finishing a great book and departing from even greater characters.

    7. Mike (the Paladin) says:

      Okay, book 3 of the so called Will Robie books I say so called because Jessica Reel is becoming pretty much a co protagonist The way this one plays out it s set up as a series of adventures This can get a little disjointed as we follow different characters and different situations but in the end Mr Baldacci ties it all together well.I ve been following this series from it s beginning and I like it While i can t say that I like everything Mr Baldacci has written I do like many of his books While [...]

    8. Jon Kurtz says:

      The Robie Reel dynamic is one of the most intriguing in popular thillers CIA assassins, once deadly enemies, become partners, friends, and Though the transition to the phase seems painfully slow at times, the tension adds to the intrigue In this story, Baldacci utilizes multiple plot lines to maintain pace and the reader s interest While action is the foundation, complicated relationships, between the protagonists and with friends and enemies, provide the mortar which strengthens the structure [...]

    9. David says:

      As I start to write this I haven t put a rating above yet I m a little conflicted about this one There is no question that I like the characters in this book, but this time around I think David had them doing too much in way to short of a time span Even Superman and Superwoman would have trouble keeping up with Will and Jessica The action really never stops and that is not always a good thing I think that applies in this case David had a really good idea when he put Will Robie and Oliver Stone t [...]

      Audiobook Review3 StarsWhy I even rated this three stars is perplexing perhaps because Baldacci s writing is tight and consistent, and he is generally a superb writer But this story is a mess, with 1 core plot that is remodeled every few chapters Plus there is a sub plot with Jessica s father, her past and her consideration of the future There is also a sub theme relating to mothers and their children Baldacci smashed far too many plots into one story This is not a Mission Impossible movie it s [...]

    11. Jan Dunlap says:

      Either Baldacci has passed his peak or I m just tired of international thrillers that stretch a little too far to be believable I ve always looked forward to Baldacci s next book, but no The plot here took half the book to really kick in, and it read like several episodes strung together, rather than one coherent story Also, I felt the emphasis on what Robie and Reel were struggling with in their emotional lives began to dominate the story if I wanted to read a family drama, I d read someone e [...]

      Whew The Target is the best Will Robie book yet The pacing is excellent for the first time in this series, I did not put down the book even once The characters are strong and we get to see new ones which are nuanced The plot is also something quite different Overall, this is a great action thriller.More reviews are available at Digital Amrit

    13. Skip says:

      Baldacci is writing exciting thrillers Jessica Reel and Will Robie are still in the crosshairs of the CIA s DDI When the President decides to work with a dissident North Korean general, they are recruited for an assassination, but the dissident s handler is killed by a North Korean superagent, Chung Cha, a survivor of a North Korean prison camp, and the dissident commits suicide after damning the President for his treachery and demanding protection for his family To assuage his guilty conscience [...]

    14. Steven Walle says:

      David Baldacci wrote a very compelling book in The Target whereby he follows the careers of two intelligence agents They have many hair raising experiences in many foreign lands as well as here at home protecting the first family.Enjoy and Be Blessed.Diamond

    15. ChopinFC says:

      Gotta say The Target had its good moments but it certainly also had its share of bad moments This is the third novel following special agent Will Robie and his partner CIA operative Jessica Reed There are lots of good moments and good story plot developments We see both Will and Jessica go through an enduring CIA re training camp in the beginning of the book Lots of ugly torture scenes hereyikes No spoilers, but eventually the story introduces radical extremists in North Korea plotting against U [...]

    16. Ware says:

      A plot trick often used in the thriller writing game is to string three or four separate threads together with only the most tenuous connect It delivers that roller coaster ride that makes thrillers thrill In The Target featuring Will Robie and Jessica Reel, CIA fixers which is to say at times they kill for America.The Target opens on Alabama s death row and hurls us to Paris, Pyongyang, rural Alabama, New York City and Nantucket Robie and Reel prove almost invincible, which is to say they need [...]

      After my last book, and not being able to finish The Stuart MacBride book.Great to get back to a author that I know I am going to be happy with and I was.Knowing that I enjoy this type of book, with assassins, international travelling and plots and of course the great characters Will Robie and Jessica Reel.This book has you hooked from the beginning with the return of Will Robie and Jessica Reel but now with the added bonus of a North Korean assassin, and a good one.David Baldacci seems to know [...]

    18. Matt says:

      Baldacci returns with a high thrills adventure, featuring both Will Robie and Jessica Reel After the CIA tries to deal with the fallout of Robie s last mission, they struggle with a plot that could leave the President of the United States in international hot water Putting Robie and Reel through their paces, the Agency sends them off to handle a mission with complete deniability and dire consequences When the mission takes a turn, Robie and Reel find themselves free to handle some personal busin [...]

    19. Monnie says:

      They re baaaaack the government sanctioned assassination team of Will Robie and Jessica Reel And I couldn t be happier.Well, maybe a little happier this latest installment didn t impress me quite as much as its predecessor, The Hit But the difference wasn t enough to knock my rating down a whole star, so 5 it is.This one puts the dynamic duo in the crosshairs of a high ranking U.S official who s convinced they should be thrown in jail for straying from the script on a previous mission fact is, t [...]

    20. Pamela says:

      Love reading Baldacci.ually Love the characters in the Will Robbie series, but this installment was a bit over the top I love a complex storyline, but there were just TOO many plots and subplots, not all of them intertwined There was an extra 100 pages or so in a subplot that added NOTHING to THE TARGET That was a disappointing , if not frustrating, non essential Since Will and Jessica are government sanctioned CIA assassins, and have earned a debt of gratitude from the sitting President, it see [...]

    21. Nilesh says:

      This is about the most disappointing Baldacci for this fan The main story is senseless time and again starting with the traitor s unbelievable approach from the supposedly iron tight nation to his adopted kids that no one and then everyone knew about to the ruthless killer developing a new and almost everything fortuitous in the climax including the First Lady s selection of cohorts The sub stories involving a snatching of kids from N Korea or Reel s father provide even headache than relief A l [...]

    22. Mike says:

      Robie, Jessica, Julie are all here and just as good as ever The plot did not agree, too scatterbrained and erratic I thought Yie Chung Cha could have been a great new character for the future but that doesn t look likely 3Stars.

    23. Paul says:

      3.5 starsI really like Robie and reel they are at least tied if not ahead of king and maxwell as my fav baldacci protagonistsThe plot of this novel is a little too busy but still a solid book

    24. Terence M says:

      3.5 stars out of 5.0

    25. Joe says:

      The mission will be the most important one for the CIA in the past fifty years, maybe in the history of the agency, and the only team good enough to see it through is plagued with personnel conflicts, black smudges on their professional record that could cost them their life If they pass a rigorous training program, if personal nightmares can be put to rest, and if the top brass can relent, Will Robie and Jessica Reel just might be able to successfully meet each objective of a complex and danger [...]

    26. Scott says:

      Why Why do I do this to myself I like to read thrillers if I m stressed out or busy If you re feeling overwhelmed, it s satisfying to read about near superhuman operatives who can handle any situation But then I wind up reading books like The Target which feature two of the WORST secret agents of all time The two main characters are supposed to be the world s deadliest assassins, but as far as I can tell they couldn t assassinate their way out of a paper bag To make things even trying, there ar [...]

    27. Luffy says:

      I wish I was versed enough to do justice to this story that is the Target The title is as usual very minimalist All three books from the Will Robie series are different from one another Here, the titular hero shares the stage with a diverse and supportive cast The amount of detail packed into 400 pages was pretty daunting.The narration and characterization in multiple settings around the world could have not worked well The small amount of time given for the reader to bond with or hate this or t [...]

    28. Corey says:

      Will Robie returns in the 3rd installment of the series, along with Jessica Reel, for another awesome thriller We are introduced to a deadly Korean Assassin who is ordered by North Korea to carry out a mission that will send a violent message to the US We find out about Jessica Reel s past and what made her become known for what she does The book was a little slow and hard to follow to start out with because they kept jumping back and fourth between Robie and the North Koreans, and I didn t kno [...]

    29. Nancy Ellis says:

      I should know by now not to start a Baldacci book unless I can stay up all night reading it straight through I love all of his heroes, especially Will Robie, who stars in this adventure along with Jessica Reel His bold move to center the plot around North Korea was fresh and exciting to me anyway , as well as the subplots along the way dealing with Jessica s past One of the best writers of the day as far as I m concerned

    30. Toni FGMAMTC says:

      4.5 starsI finished this a few days ago and should have written my review while it was fresh I m still blown away by this series The way it talked of the prison camps is freaking scary Robie and Reel are as awesome as ever, but Chung Cha stole the show really and my heart I m looking forward to reading from the series.
