Synopsis

Welcome to THE CAMEL CLUB. Existing at the fringes of Washington, D.C., the Club consists of four eccentric members. Led by a mysterious man known as "Oliver Stone," they study conspiracy theories, current events, and the machinations of government to discover the "truth" behind the country's actions. Their efforts bear little fruit-until the group witnesses a shocking murder...and become embroiled in an astounding, far-reaching conspiracy. Now the Club must join forces with a Secret Service agent to confront one of the most chilling spectacles ever to take place on American soil-an event that may trigger the ultimate war between two different worlds. And all that stands in the way of this apocalypse is five unexpected heroes.

About the Author

He then turned to writing a novel where he spent three years writing Absolute Powers in 1996, which proved to be a bestseller. He has published 29 bestselling adult novels and 4 children's novels.

Baldacci and his wife live in Vienna, VA where they are the founders of "Wish You Well Foundation". (named after one of his novels, "Wish You Well" which was also a screenplay for the movie starring Ellen Burstyn.) The Foundation works to combat illiteracy in the United States. Baldacci has over 110 million copies of his book in print.

AudiobooksNow review by Angelita on 2007-04-24 09:44:32

I found this book a little confusing with the refernces to arab culture and the names a little hard to remember who was who. Near the end it picked up with lots of action and predictable conclusions.

I have read Baldaccci's previous books starting with Absolute Power and while his plots were always clever, his characters seemed more mechanical than real. The Camel Club was every bit as well plotted as the earlier novels, but here is characters actually did spring to life and. addition to the high tension that made me turn the pages faster and faster as the threatened doomsday finish aproached, there was a good bit of sly humor. I highly recomend it.

The only good thing that I can say about this book is that the narrator, Jonathan Davis, did a decent job with moronic dialog and sophmoric descriptions. Camel Club could have been much, much shorter. If you must listen to or read this book, do yourself a favor and get the abridged version. My best advice though, is that if you have a highschool education or higher, avoid this book. This is the first and last Baldacci book that I will every read/listen to. His research and therefore understanding of the subject he writes about in this book is sub-par. Baldacci, for instance, doesn't know the difference between Agent and Officer. A simple distincion if you've done ample research. The dialog between the characters is hammy and misguided. I struggled through this book until the last CD, hoping that the end would do some sort of justice to having listened to this trife. But I was not so fortunate, Baldacci's ending to Camel Club was just as horrible as the reast of the book. I couldn't even listen to the last 2 or 3 tracks.If you like this book and think that it is well done, and/or smart, please rethink this because Baldacci does a serious disservice to those who protect this country. Bottom line, this book is terrible.
