This is a great story, but to appreciate the book you must read "Say Goodbye" first... I enjoy Lisa Gardner's books, as they are a good mix of unique characters, not so perfect D D Warren, romance, and mystery with twists and surprises. The narrators are excellent and do a great job with the story and characters. To me this is an enjoyable story and listening experience. Literature it is not, but a good read/listen it is!!! Highly recommended...
I am an avid fan of Lisa Gardner. While I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it was a little less at the edge of your seat than the previous ones. However it did keep you guessing. Definitely read "Say Goodbye" first. It seems way out of sequence but it does make a lot of references to Say Goodbye. I wish that the order was with "Say Goodbye" was before "The Neighbor."
Jason. Loved his cool, intense, intelligent, demeanor. Not to mention handsome by all accounts. hahaha.
None in Particular. They were all very well done.
The hotel scene.
Great book, easy listening.
Different timelines with different scary scenarios comprise The Neighbor. Anyone could of "DONE IT:.....it was fun to see the plot unfold to a surprise ending.
Fantastic book. As usual, there are many twists . Need to read Say Goodbye first, to understand one of the main characters.
I was not a fan of mysteries, until I discovered Lisa Gardner .. now I am addicted to her books.
I really enjoyed all of the "who did its" ....you never knew what part each person played until the end. The narration was great. If you enjoy suspenseful , plot thickening books you will love this. Those who wrote about the wife's infidelity and so forth. This is fiction...if you want predictable happy tales listen to a regency romance. Hey it's nothing you haven't heard about on NCIS or Law and Order before, or the news for that matter.
Great book, I really enjoyed it...now I'm downloading the next one in the series. I started at the first one and I'm just going down the list. Can't wait to listen to the next one!
The ending. How all of the peices of the puzzle came together
I wasn't sure about 3 narrators at first, but they really helped you relate and follow who was speaking.
I was wanting to fast forward to the end so I could see who did what, I was so into it!
I no longer live in Worcester. I now live in Brooklyn, NY.
I am a "serial reader." That means start with #1 and so not skip any in a series.A review of Gardner's D.D. Warren series suggested that one should listen to Say Goodbye ( not in the series) before reading The Neighbor. I would have felt cheated if I had not done that...I hate when references are made to a prior story that I missed reading.This book is better if the background is there from Say Goodbye. I will finish out the series and hope there are no other books "missing."
I like Science Fiction, Post Apocalypse, mysteries, and good romance. If you can mix it all in together, I am one happy camper.
Yes. This was an amazing story with such twists and turns that I'm certain I missed things.
Yes. This is a well crafted story and you really don't know what's going to happen until it happens.
I loved the narration. Having different voices for different characters really added to the richness of the story.
I didn't think it was her best, but I will continue to listen to more.
#1 This was extremely good to listen to at work. Just like listening to radio. Voices were very easy to listen to, could have done without some of the language.
The plot and the ending.
I listened to the 1st download completely, it was a potentially interesting story, but it was dull and devoid of any humor what-so-ever, that might have helped this completely unthrilling but stress filled story. A woman goes missing her husband of course is the primary suspect true to life there, there is a sex offender in the neighborhood, who becomes a target of violence that could have gotten interesting but he was 19 and had a 14 year old girlfriend who he had sex with and he has been completely on the trait and narrow after serving an entire prison sentence. The sex offenders probably had the most interesting inner dialog, they use three different narrators so you know which person is telling each part of the tale as they switch around. It didn't help it was still a drone to me. THEN the cops find out that the suspect husband has 4 million dollars in the bank, finally something intreguing, unfortunately it moved into the incredibly impossible bin at the end where they hadn't made me feel an obligation to suspend reality that much. There is so much dialog that is slow and made me want to turn it off. Then the story would throw in an interesting clue or deviation and I had to listen for another long boring series of conversations. So I skipped to the last two hours, I had missed nothing and got the wrap up. This one wouldn't be bad abridged.
