I ordered this book as I enjoy Scott Brick's readings. However, the author Coben was a great surprise to me and I thoroughly enjoyed this exciting book. I certainly did not anticipate the ending.
The story was ok, not one of Coben's best, but the narration was a total snooze. Truly, I fell asleep every time I listened to this. Scott Brick droned on and on. I couldn't listen to it when I was driving! It did the trick for getting me to sleep each night, though.
Coben's characters had potential, but I had to suspend disbelief a bit. Could anyone get into college, yet alone become a university professor, with an assumed identity? Could a private investigative agency cause as much havoc as the one in this story? As with many of Coben's stories, logic was stretched in an entertaining and engaging way.
Pick up this listen if you are looking for the perfect replacement for sleeping pills. It works, and you won't be groggy in the morning!
The overall story was excellent - Suspenseful throughout.
What's not to like about Scott's performance? After more than a decade, I recently returned a book that I had bought because of its high rating, only to be disappointed with the reader. I have never been unhappy with a Scott Brick performance.
Laugh at times, and sigh with relief.
Coben & Brick make an unbeatable team.
Trite, cliche, overblown, predictable, egotistical, fill-in-the-blank, pompous, pale, dragged out, hashed, simplistic and juvenile drivel. Above all, utterly PREDICTABLE. I wasted my time.
The writing is bad and the narration style is unbearable. Scott Brick's t
reading is so overly dramatic that it only makes the terrible dialog more noticeable. I have listened to other books read by him, but this is the first time I considered deleting the partially read book because his style was unbearable. Overall, this writer and this reader are a lethal combination. Choose something else!
wow! amazing story line. I usually figure it out at some point and an rarely surprised. I was totally shocked by this one. great story and performance!
Enjoyed the story. It kept me listening until early in the morning. Narrator was OK, but most times I could not tell who was speaking from his intonation. I really had to pay more attention to the context of who was talking.
