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.
Not only was this not suspenseful, but the narrator is HORRID. I had high hopes for Dekker, but I will not be buying any more by this author--or narrator.
I downloaded this book, expecting a good thriller, and am sad to say that I can't stand listening. The narrator sounds as though he has two blocked nostrils, congestion, and post-nasal drip. You can actually hear him snarfing and swallowing as he speaks. This is making me crazy! It's worse than hearing someone slurp or smack their food!
I have no idea how the book will ultimately be; I deleted it after 45 minutes. From what I have heard, however, the main character is an idiot; he is given a riddle that an eighth-grader could solve, and we, the audience are supposed to belive that the protagonist, who, according to the author "tested in the top 1 percent," can't figure it out?
I can't waste my precious commute time listening to idiocy in action, narrated by a wet-mouthed man suffering from adenoids.
If I wanted to be irritated, I would stay home and read Ann Coulter.
