I loved them all until they changed the narrator.
Not anymore of his if he narrates or Steven Weber narrates.
It was horrible! Completely changed the characters. I couldn't get past the first hour.
Excellent book. I love all the "Myron" books and wasn't dissappointed. However... the narrator is different from all the other audio books in this series. It definitely made a difference. This narrator lacks the personality and sarcasim you love with Win and Myron.
Kind of. The story wasn't Mr. Coben's best, but it wasn't awful, by any stretch.
No, not on the edge of my seat. It was pretty good, but not riveting.
No. As much as I appreciate his writing, I couldn't stand listening to him read. (Before I realized this was "narrated by the author" - about an hour in - I thought they got Colin Quinn's less literate brother to read it.) I didn't know what they had done with Jonathan Marosz, but I wanted him back.
Isn't this the same question as the 1st???
Apologies, Mr. Coben. I enjoy your work very much, in print. But please have someone else read it. Mr. Marosz's versatility lends itself well to your wonderful cast of characters.
I'm a big fan of the Myron Bolitar series, but this one had the smelly smell of something that smelled smelly. I understand that Mr. Coben is the real voice of all his characters, but he need not subject his public to his narration. Hire a professional for Pete's sake! I hope he never tries that again.
It would have if I hadn't been distracted by the narrator.
If you love this series, skip the audio version of this book. Get the dead tree version & use your eyes to read. This one almost completely ruined it for me.
I cannot listen to anymore Myron Bolitar books without Marosz
The book is OK but the narration is bad
It just didn't seem like a Myron Bolitar book without Marosz,
Harlan Coben is an amazing writer, but as an actor, he is challenged. I almost stopped listening to the book many times because the voices did not work for me, but the story was compelling.
I had to stop with an hour left. I couldn't handle the narration any longer. Horrific to listen to.
Not if he is narrating......
I love me some Myron Bolitar but this was just not a great book! I found it hard to listen to due to the narration...Harlan should stick to just writing!!
anyone who doesn't mind that the narrator is horrid. Harlan needs to stick to writing and not narrating. It is so awful
the absolute worst impersonations. His characters didn't even stay with the same accents in the same conversations. (RE: Esperanza has an accent and a slighter higher pitch in the first line but sounds exactly like Myron in the next few lines)
I plan on "returning" this book because it is so bad, i can't get through it. The story is great but OMG I can't complain enough about the narration.
Terrible narration. Don't know why they switched and the author read his own book but that is exactly what it sounds like, someone reading in a dull manner. The story is not as good as previous ones and it seems like he is searching for that "twist": at the end. You just has to stop 2/3 of the way through and think "who is the most unlikely person" and voila, you've got it.
