This was a really fun story - when you thought you knew what was going on, Coben would throw a twist in. When you thought the story was wrapping up, there was another twist. Another excellent Coben book that will keep you guessing that I highly recommend.
The pointless, graphic details in this book turned my stomach. I couldn't even listen to the first part of this book. The narrator is terrible, but so is the story. Waste of a credit in my opinion.
Harlan Coben is a master story teller. I have listened to every one of his books from audible. Wether it is part of a series or stand alone like this one I have never been dissapointed. "Gone For Good" twists and it turns and actually stunned me at the end. Maybe I am gullible or maybe I just love a good story who knows. I don't think you will be dissapointed if you purchase this book.
It took some getting used to the readers voice but eventually I did and came to actually enjoy his voice. The story was interesting and took some real turns. Highly recommend it.
Harlan Coban is a masterful story teller...mystery, heart thumping, emotional, can't wait to "turn the page" with a great twist at the end. I have listened to two of his books so far and he has managed to very successfully reel me in for the surprise ending all the while sticking a little "sting" into the storyline. I intend on reading or listening to every one of his books.
This is an excellent story, full of intrigue and passion, that is unfortunately brought down by the narration. The narrator has a nice deep voice and would make a great news announcer or weatherman, but his uninterested, monotone delivery is not at all suited to this story. If the story itself had not been so good, I could not have made myself finish it. Please listen to the sample before you buy, and realize that the entire book will be read in that same tone, whether he is reading about the color of his socks or the death of a loved one. Do yourself a favor and read the book on this one. You'll love it.
I found the narrators voice to be quite intollerable. Seemed to "over-act" everything like a bad saturday night live skit.
The book itself not bad, but not one of Harlan's best in my opinion.
The critics' comments have this one dead on. I only have one negative opinion in agreement with several other customer reviews. The narrator was annoying. In my opinion he expressed seemingly deep emotions with little or no feeling. However, I also got used to it due to the excellence of the story. Don't miss out!
