Corben is a terrific storyteller and Brick is a great performer. No Second Chance was riveting and impossible to put away. Well done!
Audiobooks are the perfect escape in a busy world. I enjoy well-written entertaining fiction & some engaging educational non-fiction.
Defies believability with over-done plot twists. Narrator is fabulous and makes it an ok listen.
Brit in Exile
No - I would recommend the printed or electronic book
Yes, the plot was very well engineered, though if I had one criticism it might be a little too convoluted with just a little too many twists.
I'm sorry as I know there are a lot of people who seem to like Scott's recordings. His narration is just way too melodramatic for my tastes. The almost excruciating introduction of over dramatic character portrayals is second only to the painful and irritating way in which everything that happens in this book sounds like a tragic event, even when it concerns the mundane. I wish this was not the case as I would dearly love to listen to the other books by this author, but i am going to have to give them a miss because this became almost unlistenable.
Many moments were moving, though the melodramatic delivery actually took away from those moments as they felt false.
Please get someone else to read these books.
I've been a Harlan Cobin fan for years but this one isn't his best, at least not for me. Not bad just not great. I listen to my books when I'm in the yard and when I'm really into one I continue once I get in. Not the case with this one. I hate that I missed the thrill of the intrigue but maybe next time. Doesn't throw me off and I'll listen to the next one.
I do hope he'll kick in with his warped sense of humor. At times he reminds me a bit of Nelson Demille who defines sarcastic, warped humor.
This book was well written. The author gave enough detail about the critical pieces that would eventually tie the story together without being to cliche or giving away the mystery. The narrator did a superb job, one of the best I've heard.
Probably in the top 25%.
It's a good mystery with a broad spectrum of characters and exciting twists.
Scott Brick is always a good narrator. Unlike several male narrators I've heard, his female characters are convincing, and he has a laid-back sense to his narration that lets you cruise undistracted through the story.
It was faced paced with well developed characters and intriguing plot. One of those books where you are wanting to finish and have all the puzzle pieces in place but also not ready to say goodbye to the characters.
Story took a really long time to tell. Some twists towards the end that I didn't like. Not the worst book of ever read but not the best Harlan Corbin I've ever read either
