The Woods was a good listen! I would love it if it were read by a different narrator. Brick sort of reminds me of the cheesy sitcom detective from New York or somewhere. It can be hard to listen to it. The story line redeems it and the story travels well.
The ending, although somewhat incomplete, was satisfying. I like that I can decide how I wanted the story to end. That may irritate others but I think the typical ending would have somehow ruined the story for me.
I will definitely listen to this author again... and cringe through it if the narration is always from Brick.
I usually listen to audio books in the car or while I'm going for a walk. This one grabbed me for the last 2 hours. I sat an listened to the ending without break. I found it appropriately predictable for a mystery. When I made a guess at what was going to happen, I was right most of the time because the author set up the clues well.
There was no way to figure this one out until the end!
I'm now a big fan of Halan Coben novels.
Yes, for me, but I do want to read it later in print.
Always love Scott Brick's performance. Look for him every time I am searching for a book to listen to.
yojne efil look at everything
Did not read the book. I use audible more frequently so that I can listen on my way to work, work breaks, doing laundry etc.
If I had time that would have been great.
This is the first Harlan Corbin book I have listened to. I was about to return the book after listening to the first 4 chapters, then my husband, who is a big fan of Corbin said I should try at least one more chapter.I'm so glad I did. The book was great.the story line picked up and I could not wait to finish it.
All the characters were well done, I especially liked the phone calls! Mr Corbin has a wonderful style and plays on our human emotions. Scott brick, who I had a hard time getting use to became very easy to listen too. I think I was just so used too another narrator that I wasnt ready to clear my mind.
If you haven't given Harlan Corbin a listen I highly recommend his books and Scott brick is an AWESOME narrator.
I felt that the characters were getting all jumbled. We had police, lovers, spies, and all. I listened to the end but I was disappointed.
Better sound quality from the narrator. Seemed to be an echo or something in the microphone.
Yes, It was a good story and was told well. Very articulate and detailed.
Good read and would have gotten higher marks from me if the echo in the microphone wasn't through the whole book. To be honest I had tuned out the echo half way through but still...
Everybody needed a dose of maturity.
Nearly every character at some point said, "you don't understand." I felt like I was listening to a bunch of 12-13 year olds. Too much emotional reaction and self absorption by all the characters. There were also a few continuity problems with the story.
Some of the scenes with the 6 year old daughter were charming but that was spoiled by the fact that there were several time spans in the book when the daughter was totally ignored by the author.
Scott Brick did his usual great job of narration...probably the only reason I finished the book. His pacing was a bit unusual but it fit.
Coben could take 10 minutes describing putting on his shirt. There are to-to many segues into lines that have no relationship to the story.
The plot was great
He is a bit sing-song but overall a good reader
The story line was excellent and riveting so I struggled to the end.
His last book had the same problem. I'm done.
I guess I'm a baby...I just love to be read to.
Lots of twists and turns but I didn't find myself completely lost in a sea of characters like I sometimes do with Coben novels. I liked all the characters in the book and the plot was good and unpredictable so I recommend it.
