If you have read one Standford book, you have read them all.This writer is among those writers which are "commerical" writers, same characters almost the same plot in all his Prey books.and is a genius in putting 'filler' in his books.she was eating a cheese sandwich, he was putting in to a cup, nothing to do with the plot,nothing to do with the characters.only makes the book longer.This book is full of the 'F' word,which gives it no help.Even at $9.95 this should be a pass.I would no waste any money on Standford books.He needs to get some new characters and a realy new plot.
I like all of John Sandord's books, but this is the first book I just couldn't get into. I listened to the first 3 chapters twice, I found the story to be all over the place and I just couldn't get into it. I liked the narrator and that is about it.
I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.
Right up there with the ones that hold my attention and also make me feel like I've gotten my money's worth.
Yes. Sanford at his best. I never knew what was going to happen next.
It has been some time since I listened to my last Lucas Davenport book and this one just didn't keep my interest. Not sure if the time between the prior book and this one caused me to lose interest in the characters or not. I did finish it because I have enjoyed all the past Davenport books and this will not change my opinion on the overall series.
Absolutely loved this one! Typical twists and turns with multiple characters. Just when you think you are ahead of the plot, another turn trips you up. A great read....the unabridged version is super.
I am a little more than 45 min into this audible book and I am having trouble staying focused. I read the reviews and many love this narrator. I think the book would be more tolerable, should the narrator be one with a clearer voice. I find that his voice is hard to listen to. Sanford had introduced so many characters within the first 15 min of the book that it is hard to keep track of them. His writing style inserts a lot of "_____ said"... "______ said" and "______ asked" that it really breaks up the conversation between the two characters. So far neither of the two story lines have captured me and with almost an hour into the book, I would think at least of one of them makes me want to know more. Unfortunately, I think I will remove this one from my iphone and move on to my next book.
I just couldn't get more than 45 minutes into this listen. I don't know what it is...too many characters to keep track of. It didn't capture my interest at all.
If you like John Sandford you will love this book. If you have never read Sandford you will be caught in his books and read alot of them. He is a neat author and I love his book!!Never a boring minute.
Initially I gave the book a 3-star rating but then changed it to 4. The story was very good, the plot was very good but the language started to unravel closer to the end. I really don't mind strong language when it is part of a situation, but it is gratuitous to the later part of the book.
I thought about the 3-star rating and realized that it might be an unfair punishment for a smaller literary sin. Back to the story, I would definitely recommend this book!
