I could not finish this book. The narrator sounded like Daniel Schorr with Paul Bunyan's adenoids. I kept wanting him to blow his nose and gargle. He actually gurgled a few times when inhaling. I couldn't listen.
I had the plot figured out very early on and found the writing somewhat juvenile. I've read Dekker before and liked him, but this book just seemed silly from the word go.
I only paid the $6.97 price for it and still overpaid by about $6.96.
Next time this guy reads a book, he needs Vicks VapoRub on his chest the night before.
With so many positive reviews, I'm surprised how terrible the reader is. He reads like a fuddy duddy grandfather with a head cold reading to an eight-year-old. There's nothing suspenseful about his tone and some of the voices he uses are inexplicably rushed and embarrassing. After listening to excellent readers like Len Cariou (he read Michael Connely's "Echo Park"), this was a major disappointment. Perhaps the story is good, but it's hard to tell. I really gave it a fair shot, too (I listened for a good 1.5 hours). I don't know what this guy got for reading this story . . . he should have gotten life. Who auditions these guys? Sorry I'm so harsh, but I'm trying to save some time and money for other unsuspecting readers who believe the 4.5 star (Huh??!) audible.com rating. I love audible.com and recorded books in general, but ouch!!
Its been a while since I found a good thriller on Audible that left an impression on me. After going through great books Ludlum, Finder, Coben, and others, I felt stranded. There seemed to be nothing worth reading. After combing the through about ten pages of listings, I finally found this one. It was crisp and entertaining with some extra points for originality. A very satisfying read. Although not my favorite narrator, he is perfect for the voice of the villain.
Dekker is an amazing author that takes his readers on twists and turns that make you dizzy. "Three" is just that - a nail biter that glues you to your CD player till the thank you and if you are like me - you put the first CD back in and listen to it again. "Three" is one of those books that inspires spontaneous book reviews with your friends. Any excuse to talk about the plot. Don't buy another book until you have tried "Three". Dekker will not disappoint you.
I usually prefer less tense books, but this one is brilliant. The narrator, Rob Lamont, did an excellent job, and I can't understand why he would be accused of being "nasal".
Other reviews have said that the plot was too obvious. Again, I disagree. It was only as I got to the final few chapters did I understand why the book's title is "Thr3e".
I found it difficult to stop listening to the book. It has pace, excitement, suspense, drama, human interaction, and plenty of twists and turns. Excellent!
I loved this book! I could not stop listen to it! It was a GREAT listen from begining to end. The narator I loved. He had different voices for each character! THe end will throw you for a loop!!! I love the way Ted writes with open-ended questions that pulls you through the book!!!
The voice is muffled and very hard to understand. Ted Dekker is a fabulous gifted and commited writer. I am so sad that the audio of his reading is terrible. I tried a few more witht he test and will not buy any more until the problem is resolved. We own Three. I would love to own all of his. We have the books but wanted to listen to another reading to us.
