While a few specific details stretched beyond believable in an otherwise logical character, the book was a good read and held my interest. Nor is there any clear reason for the world to have humans and dogs but jabbits instead of whatever the heck jabbits are replacing.
Still wasn’t sold after the first chapter, but I kept on. Quotes from The Finisher. I loved this book and found it difficult to put down.
As much as I enjoyed The Finisher, a decent portion of this novel could have been edited better or better yet, Baldacci could have given readers at least some answers.
