Audible Fan, Amazon Customer, Gardener, Quilter, Liberal and Activist. I'll read about anything!
Brick isn't my favorite narrator...he did a fair job in Harlan Cobens "No Second Chance".
I really felt what the writer was expressing in his exciting story of a man who loses his wife and daughter and doesn't know why.
Scott Brick was back to his "Jewish Mother Intonation", ending every sentence on a query. It gets irritating and looses it's impact after several hours of the same intonation.
The plot is tight and very exciting. I wanted to know how it ended.
Too bad about the narration-wish I'd have bought the book in paper form to read..I would have enjoyed it more.
If you actually LIKE Scott Brick, you'll be happy. If he irritates you, as he does me, buy the book instead of listening.
Harlan Coben is surely a favorite of mine and has not let me down with
No Second Chance kept me on the edge of my seat. It was an easy listen with awesome narration (Scott Brick) that sucked me in from the very start and kept me there till the end.
I did short this book 1 star and my reasoning for this was the few times throughout the book that I felt were either a bit predictable and/ or unrealistic. That said, I do find it fascinating that Coben can create an ordinary character and put them in extraordinary circumstances all while keeping the reader believing the unbelievable things that are happening. Not an easy thing to do:0)
I really thought Scott brick ruined this so so book. His characterization were over the top and generalized. I skipped though to the end just to get it over with. Don't waste a credit on this absurd performance.
This was the first book I have read/listened that Harlan Coben has written! I can't wait to listen to the others he has written!
I was so often who did this and why. What a tangled web of craziness and twisted loyalty. Do you move on? Do you live with the guilt? Do you decide to be happy for a second chance? Or do you forgive and forget? Really left me wondering what I would do. Would I ever be able to trust again?
Hard to stop listning.
Very easy to feel for Marc Seidman,
Excellent book, I'll have to try another of byHarlan Coben.
I love listening to the narrator Scott Brick. His performance keeps me on the edge of my seat.
