The darting back and forth lost my interest. The problem could be the subject matter, the narrative or me. I can't recommend this one on audible.
This is a very well written book, and quite enjoyable!
I am not a fan of books about "EVIL" and the darkside, but I heard the book was worth it, so I gave it a shot.
My only knock on the audiobook is the reading. Due to the way the book was written, it was difficult to determine who was speaking until you were a few minutes into the persona. The book should have had multiple readers. Plus, her Boston accent is atrocious. The only thing worse than a Boston accent is a bad impression of a Boston accent :)
Overall; however, a very enjoyable audiobook!
I was disappointed in this novel. There were no plot twists of any significance and the ending was a yawn. Time was wasted on details that could have been presented in 1/3 the time without sacrifice to story line. Might I call it padding? I found the references and uses of ancient symbology interesting although they turned out to have precious little impact on the plot. I smell a series coming but I won't be reading.
The characters are not believable. Story lines get started and never get finished. The narrator does an aweful job with the voices. Other than that, how was the play Mrs. Lincoln?
I was definitely enveloped by this story, loved the way it was written. You get to experience the perspectives of the various characters. You'll get to know them so well that their actions will seem so natural to you, not fake and fiction. The suspense will keep you listening! I must admit that I did double check my door/window locks every night while I was listening to this book!
Predictable characters. Silly story-line. After the 30 minute explanation of the substance of chalk, where it came from, what's in it and what it's used for, I gave up.
Should have been titled: overly dramatic super women in a world of bumbing men
I liked the story idea, but don't feel that it was very well thought out, or put together. Also, I found it very difficult to understand the characters. I felt that they were all over simplified and not very believable/realistic. As the book wore on, I found myself hoping that the killer would get to them all. This book came highly reccomended to me, but I can not pass that reccomendation along as I found it to be a fairly poor listen.
This was a nice little thriller with good characters. The plot was typical with the sadistic, deviant bad guy whose acts are bit too heinous to be believable. You won't be convinced this could actually happen, but it's an entertaining read.
This is a very good book, which I thoroughly enjoyed. However, if this is your first Gerritson book, I advise you read the surgeon and body double first, as these stories lend themselves to this story. I didn't do that and now wish I would have. Regrettably, I know the conclusions of those two books, and would have enjoyed listening to those 2 prior to this.
