It took ten seconds for Web London to lose everything: his friends, his team, his reputation. Point man of the FBI's super-elite hostage rescue team, Web roared into a blind alley toward a drug dealer's lair, only to meet a high-tech, custom-designed ambush that killed everyone around him. Now coping with the blame-filled words of anguished widows and the suspicions of colleagues, Web tries to put his life back together with the help of his psychiatrist, Dr. Claire Daniels. To do so, he must discover why he was the one man who lived through the ambush and find the only other person who came out of that alley alive, a ten-year-old boy who has since disappeared.… (mais)

As always this is graded based on its genre and my expectations. I wanted to read an absorbing thriller that was accessible and this one hit on all my requirements. I knew I had a round trip train ride between DC and NYC and I would have around six hours of uninterrupted reading time, but I also knew my mood was kind of down and I didn’t think my concentration level would be very high. I initially thought this might be too focused on macho action behavior but most of the book was about unraveling the tangled threads of an intricate mystery and of understanding one’s last. I actually found the final action sequences worked for me and that is often not he case. This is a 550 page book but it never felt long and I genuinely enjoyed it. ( )

I was looking for a real thriller, and thought I would try one by David Baldacci. I had read a very favourable review a while back, and I have also seen and enjoyed the movie version of Absolute Power.

After reading reviews at Amazon, I picked Last Man Standing. However, I was really disappointed. For me it wasn't thrilling at all. Several times I had to force myself to pick it up again to continue reading. For me, a good thriller is a book you can't stop reading, even if it's getting late and you really, really should try to get some sleep instead of continue reading.

Examples of great thrillers I have read are: The Firm by John Grisham, The Day After Tomorrow by Allan Folsom (nothing to do with the weather-related movie of the same name) and Angels and Demons by Dan Brown.

But Last Man Standing was quite the opposite. Sure it had its moments where it got exciting for a while (the final shoot-out for example), but those times were quite rare.

I've been trying to figure out why I didn't like it, but I can't say I know why. I do think that a lot of what happens in the book is quite far-fetched (especially the reason the hero Web London froze during the ambush) and that the characters are pretty one-dimensional, but that's not enough of a reason. Both The Day After Tomorrow and Angels and Demons have plenty of far-fetch twists and one-dimensional characters, but they were still exciting reads. I can't come up with a definite answer as to why I didn't like Last Man Standing - I simply just didn't care for it.

Writing a negative review like this will probably earn me a few unhelpful votes, but I think it is important to also review books you didn't like. Otherwise you risk getting an unbalanced view. However, I do admit that it is much more fun to review books you really liked.

But to finish, if you are looking for a good thriller, skip this one and try one of the other three I mentioned above. ( )

Web London is an FBI agent in one of the 'special forces' called out in crisis situations. An inside informant led his team to such a situation and every member of his team was killed. He was the last man standing. Baldacci carves a great story into this nice, satisfying and delightfully fat book. ( )

This book was too long for me. The plot convoluted. Web London is the sole survivor of an FBI hostage rescue squad’s disastrous drug raid in Washington, DC. His survival is the result of “freezing” up--sorta. And, that's only one part of the plot. Strange that the FBI let a guy under investigation back to work???? Novel has a few interesting ideas, which if developed, could result in a decent story. ( )

The cast is engagingly fierce and Baldacci's brain-teasing plot leaves you wanting more. Bottom line : high-scoring shoot-'em-up.
