I've read two of Gregg Hurwitz's books and liked them very much so I didn't hesitate to snatch this one up. I just want him to get on with the story. Too much rambling, not enough action and I'm doubting I will ever finish listening to it.
With the other books being 9s, this would rate about a 4.
Yes, very slow.
No. I'm actually a little over 1/2 way through and will probably just give up.
I have read several others and loved them so I was excited to start a new one.This one is just so bad. WAYYYYYY too much description, I mean it must have been 20 minutes about LA. And the narrator, who I really like, was terrible. The character is so whiny. And the writing of his story was annoying when I had to re-listen to what I'd already read.
I haven't finished, I will finish because I'm on a trip and I don't have another book yet, and I'm mildly curious about the story, but I just wanted to warn Gregg Hurwitz/Scott Brick fans to be cautious of this one. Ugh.
Maybe he hated the story too.
Angela and Junior and Xena. Preston is supremely annoying!
I was really not that happy with this one He wrote?
I fell asleep every time I started listening to it!!
That's just my feelings about it
I am a retired school counselor (middle and elementary) and an avid reader. I am a lover of great mysteries, quirky protagonists, and medical/scientific non-fiction. I travel a lot and love the freedon audiobooks give me to drive, work, and relax while enjoying a good book. On my ipod I have eclectic musical selections as well as audiobooks. I will strive to never steer you wrong in a review.
I would have enjoyed the print version more just because I am not a fan of Scott Brick who has a very odd and off-putting delivery.
Not on the edge of my seat but there were some surprises.
Mr. Brick has a very odd delivery that did not fit the protagonist of the book. It was a bad fit.
It isn't that kind of book.
Love to get a book that I can't stop reading. I love page turners
Glad I bought it on sale. If it weren't for Scott Brick I may have given up on it. But it was worth finishing. I love anything Scott narrates
You can never get a cup of tea large enough or a book long enough to suit me.” ― C.S. Lewis
great book , perfect narrator. The use of Jesus's name as an explictive makes it unrereadble to me.
Loved it. A very well-written mystery. The narrator performed in such a way as to compel me to try and finish the story in two sittings. I would happily purchase any additional works featuring the author and the narrator.
Overall "convincing," to use the author's preferred yardstick, except perhaps for the fulcrum on which rests the story to begin with.
