I began this book because my wife raved about this series, and she never raves about anything--including about me. The story line is completely ridiculous except it draws you in immediately and entertains with every word written. This book will put the reader/listener in a great mood. Also, it is a terrific murder mystery, that has wonderful plot twists.
Don't know what I want to be when I grow up. Trip's cool though. Use Audible to make gym-training sane... And rip my imagination.
I just liked this. Jonathan Marosz is an actor(s) who creates a compelling ensemble. But Harlan Coben... Whoa! This is the first of his stuff I've read. I'm going off to buy more. this story is fine... energy filled story arc. Lots of nifty (nifty? did I write nifty?) twists. the dialogues OTH – internal and external – are crisp. For what you want in a mystery... you get here. Oh... BTW... I almost didn't buy it when I saw that Myron Bolitar was a sports agent, and since I'm not mesmerized by sports, thought it would be a cultural reach.
But... but... it wasn't. Coben uses Myron Bolitar's profession as a device to cement together a zany group of characters. And.. and.. you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll like it. Enjoy.
I like the appeal of the type of hero cast in Myron. Complex, conflicted, but strong of purpose and a web of supporting characters that are also admirable. I like Harlan Coben anyway for a great read, but am especially looking forward to more stories that include Myron.
I really enjoyed the story and liked the narration. This was my first Coben book. I definately want to read more Myron. The writing is witty and had me laughing. I didn't like the ending though. It seems as if there are a few better ones out there.
I didn't expect much from this book but it was surprisingly ineteresting, humorous and entertaining.
I liked the way it all came together at the end, once it started picking up I couldn't stop listening to it. I didn't enjoy the overly sarcastic or slight arrogance of Myron which is the only reason it's not 5 stars. Tends to be a theme for many of Cobens books but this kind of arrogance was very juvenile, maybe because it is once of his earlier books. I wasn't sure how much longer I could take Myron's pompous attitude even though he lived in his parents basement. I probably won't read the next in this series of Myron, but definitely I will be reading more of Cobens books. Deal breaker was still a great read and I enjoyed the voice of the narrator. Coben is my favorite fiction writer by far!
50 something, retired professional, mother, grandmother, wife.
I love Myron Bolitar. well crafted mystery. good character development. a good sense of humor. love it that Myron doesn't take himself too seriously.
I found Coben through a daily deal for The Stranger and while that is quite different the quality of the writing is there. This book is set in the world of sports agent Myron Bolitar. Myron is a great character and there is a excellent support cast. There are enough twists and turns and it is relatively short and fast paced. I will definitely be looking at the next book in the series.
