Like others before me, I found the reader impossible to listen to for any length of time. Some day I may try to listen to this book again beyond the 35 minutes already invested. Or at least to the point where I can figure out the mystery. As of today, however, I don't care enough to continue listening. I have listened to so many excellent narrators. Unfortunately for this book, the producers didn't use one.
I thought this was a great book! The plot kept you on your toes. I thought the narrator did a great job. Some people thought he had a nasal problem, but it's a suspense novel. He also did a great job sounding out the different voices. I have read other Ted Dekker books and as usual he keeps you wondering. Can't wait to listen to another Dekker story.
I really enjoyed this book! Not the canned bood guys and bad guys we come to expect. I had trouble turning this one off.
I noticed this story when it was the featured sale audio here. I had never read/listened to anything by Dekker before. But, when I learned this story had been made into a movie I got it that day and spent every possible moment listening to it. I thought the story was magnificent and well crafted. I'm pretty good at figuring things out, but I couldn't figure out who the "bad guy" was until just before it was revealed.
At first I thought this was just another good adventurous story that had some Christian characters in it. But, then by the end of it I felt Dekker had created an even more remarkable story about the sinful nature of all humans that made perfect sense without being preachy.
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!
