Mom to 3 boys, full time professional. Listen to 2 books a week in my car during a long commute. On the hunt for a good, gripping read.
I finished this book wanting to slap Ellen, the main character across the face! Talk about selfish and uncaring. She completely lacks empathy for anyone but herself. Has she completely lost sight of the fact that she adopted this child? That there are other people with feelings for this boy? Maybe his birth parents? The "twist" at the end just made me angry.
This was an excellent story, but unfortunately the narrator's voice was way too loud and expressed too much heavy drama.
I could not stop listening thanks to the riveting storyline and the excellent narration. I have read Lisa Scottoline's books in the past and liked it OK, but this was exceptional. Whether you have children of your own or not, you will be drawn in to Ellen's horrible search for the truth. Keep your tissues handy and be prepared for an emotional journey with lots of surprises.
I really enjoyed this book and the narrator did a fantastic job. I listen to loads of mysteries so it's nice when I find out that isn't formulaic. And if you're a parent, have a box of tissues handy!

I was a little disappointed that this was not a Rosato & Associates story, but Look Again is an excellent story. Lisa Scottoline has taken an extremely difficult topic and given it back the emotion it deserves. As usual her character development is outstanding and the reader really gets to know each person in the story through their respective roles.
One of my favorite things about listening to Lisa Scottoline books has always been the voice Barbara Rosenblat, so when I read that this was a different voice, I had concerns. I can tell listeners that Mary Stuart Masterson, a tremendously talented actress, did a fabulous job. She took to the story with ease and never let me down once.
I also enjoyed being able to listen to the interview with Lisa Scottoline at the end of the presentation. Ms. Scottoline is a not only a remarkable writer, but shows her talent as an advocate and a mother as well.
Look Again is a must for not just Scottoline fans, but also fans of a good suspense!
The narration is wonderful, but everything took too long as it is obvious what is being set up to happen. It's the kind of book I would have enjoyed reading fast, but you can't do that in audio format.
Very moving, and touching story about being a mother. The story became even more meaningful since i finished listening to it on Mother's Day.
