Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was my first Baldacci book, and it is still my favorite. It is a very exciting book and the information you get on Hostage Rescue Team and FBI in general is fun to read about. Baldacci does a good job of putting you in the shoes of Web London. The plot has many twists and turns and each one keeps you hooked. Through the descriptions of his environment, you can feel like you are there better than some of his other books. This book is exciting and more believeable than other fiction out there. Although 4 stars may be overdoing it a bit, 3 stars would definately not do it justice. This is my favorite fiction book in this genre.

This is the first book I've read by this author. I'm currently obsessively craving "thriller" mysteries, and this one "hit the spot". I really enjoyed the character, Web London, because mentally he was so damaged and messy on one level in sharp contrast with how competent and efficient he was on another level. To me, it seemed to be a truer depiction of the way people really are, rather than all one way or another. I especially appreciated that there was no neat, easy resolution between Web and Claire Daniels at the end of the book. I will definitely read another by this author.

i've been reading this one to the page 241 now, it's getting better and better. baldacci actually did lot of good and thorough researches before putting them together and into a novel. the dialogues between the shrink and web london were all top-nothed and very well put. the dialogues? well, they are one of the bests that i've ever read. the only bad thing about this book is the typesetting. it's too tight and congested, making the pages only in heavy blocks of paragraphs, while making the dialogues not so easy to catch on. this is the worst typesetting book that i ever encountered, and i might hold the full responsibility to the editor that did not and simply overlooked such a burden that might hurt the eyes of the readers, shame on him/her! the plot and scenario might be too complicated to some readers but really are eye-candy to a reader like me. i love it. i just don't know why some of the readers have to judge a book's value by not too believable or sometimes gave a low rating due to some of their moral standard or the limits of their nerves. when reading a book, you have to evaluate how much the hardworks and his heart of a writer has put into it. by comparison to some horrible writers like higgings and patterson who just cash in with their old format to produce similar books one after another and produced them three to four books a year once they hit the jackpot of getting a best seller and become famous. these are actually the worst writers who we should shun away. baldacci definitely is not one of them, because so far he's writing books that were so differently each time, even sometimes the plots were a bit impossible to some readers.Read more ›

By Kris on Feb. 23 2004
Format: Mass Market Paperback
There were too many odd coincidences in this book to make it entirely enjoyable. It seemed too contrived, like the author had trouble creating a concise plot and had to draw so many unlikely connections to finally end the thing.
Further, there's not really any surprises, because "the last man standing" is just who you would expect it to be: the hero, the only one consistently referred to by his first name, "Web." The villains (the male villains, that is) are always identified by their last names or entire names (e.g., Nemo Strait, got that?)
On the other hand, until the last 50 pages or so, when the plot unravels in an orgy of violence and unlikely coincidences, it does make for interesting reading. Web's psychiatric experience is different, and the insights into the operations of the FBI were interesting.
The goings-on of a horse farm were entirely uninteresting to me, but if you like horses, you may get a "kick" out of the fact that Web and his "sidekick" spend a lot of time on a horse farm.
What I learned was this: if you read Balducci, you'll got a lot of interesting detail and some character study, but a contrived plot that could be improved upon by a ten-year old.
By the way there's a prominent 10-year old character in this book. He survives, with Web and a few other heroes and heroines. Diximus.

To finish up my troika of weekend reading, I completed the book Last Man Standing by David Baldacci. This was recommended to me by Chris Miller, and he was right... I liked it.
Web London is a member of the FBI's Hostage Rescue Team. During an operation to take out a drug house, something happens to cause London to freeze at the point where they were supposed to rush the location. The operation turns out to be a setup, and the entire team is killed except for him. He has to deal with the guilt over being the "last man standing", along with trying to figure out what happened that caused him to freeze. The deeper he digs, the more he finds that points towards a cover-up or a leak within the bureau.
Pretty good pacing for a book that's over 500 pages. Good character development, and a number of plot twists that you don't see coming. Definitely a time commitment due to the size, but a good psychological crime thriller.
