I was really disappointed at how thick headed the main character was. I started rooting for the bad guys to take him out and end his suffering. There were too many little story lines going on in this book, it was disconnected. I didn't really care at all for this and will really have to debate whether or not I would listen to another one by this author.
I like the narrator, I have listened to several books that he has done so I know the problem here was all storyline.
The story was entertaining and had lots of twist, liked how I couldn't figure it out, the detectives weren't very good though...lol They should have looked into the wife more or at least her phone records especially her call right after the shooting??
I'll be looking forward to reading more books by this author!
I'm relatively new to audio books, so I'm no expert, but I enjoyed this book! Never read anything by Coben before, but I will again in the future. Good purchase!
Couldn't wait to see what curve ball was coming next. Absolutely one of my favorites, start listening and it will grab you and keep you guessing as to how it all plays out. Great entertainment
This was a disappointing book. Too many unecessary details. The story went into tangents that were inexplicable. Not worth the price.
I was listening to 11/22/63 but it was kind of dragging. I needed a sure thing and turned to Coben. He does not disappoint. This is my second Coben book. These are not great literary novels but they are definitely entertaining, face paced and edge of your seat reads. I loved the Vern character in this book.
I spend a lot of time seeking out the perfect story worthy of my credit. I enjoy suspense thrillers w/ a kick of satire. I'm a picky listener.
So, my secret's out, I'm new to books. Yes, read in college and on all palm tree, sun basking vacations. But, now that I'm an 80 hour/week executive that travels a lot, I have wandered into Harlan Coben. He peaked me, perked me and shocked me. I'm his newest virgin fan. The plot twisted and turned. Similar to many books others have experienced I'm sure but, this one, well, I'm pleasantly satisfied.
The natural evolution of one's imagination will run into a multitude of directions in order to crack the case and prove oneself smarter than the writer. Every time I thought I guessed the plot, or had one up on the author's course, I was shocked to find myself at the edge of my car seat for another fantastic change of events in the story line.
This novel, complete with it's multitude of climaxes left me smiling. Satisfied so much that yes, I will enjoy another Coben experience on my way to work tomorrow. However, I'm not sure it can top the quality of characters or the final lawyer twist this novel threw at me this evening.
Thank you Mr. Coben, thank you very much.
This was my first Harlan Coben. In the beginning I found it almost too exciting. As the reading continued, though, my interest waned and doubts about the story began to creep in. They grew. As I neared the two-thirds mark, I was impatient for the story to wrap up, irritated at the needless complexity of the plot, the introduction of new characters, the gaping holes, the implausibility of everything--story, characters, and their motivation. I finished by concluding that there will be no second chance for Harlan Coben.
This book was awesome, as always with Harlan Coben. There are always great twists in his books and this one is no different. Although, some are predictable a lot of them are not. I highly recommend this book to anyone.
