The reader was too expressive, and I thought the
book was far too long for the story. Just too many words. The story was not bad but all of the thougts and tears included cobbled it up far too much.
The plot sounds interesting, but once you actually get into the story you find it all a bit unlikely. I think he really could have made this a good book without going so over-the-top with the story. And of all the audio books I have "read" I liked this narrator the least! He tries so hard and over does it so much that I think that contributed to the absurdity of the story. Even with the authors signature move "tie up all the loose ends at the end",this book left me unsatisfied.
The story was a real good one with lots of twists and turns. Worth a 'read' if you can stand to listen to the narrator. He definitely took away from the book. He made me want to scream with his sorrow-filled, monotone voice whenever he was in the main character - which was a good portion of time. I was going to download another Harlan Cobin but saw Scott Brick was also the narrator for that one and I instantly decided to pass.
I have listened to other audio books from this author. This was very difficult to stay interested in fully. The narrator (male) tries to employ a female (and sometimes w/ accent) voice which was interuptive of the book's plot. I could not wait for the book to end.
Okay, true confessions, I prefer the books that aren't Myron. Somehow I missed this one when it first came out and I read a later one that briefly references the main character of this book. I was so thrilled to finally learn what his story was!
It is full of typical Coben devices some I find more eye rolling than others. However, it's a fun ride. It's also longer than your average Myron novel. I consider that an added bonus!
This was my first audio book by Harlan Cobin and I loved it. The storyline was first rate and kept me guessing as to who did what. A great read. I highly recommend it.
the story has several problems...none of them solvable. the dialogue is so bad that i found myself actually embarrased to be listening to it.
plus,the narration is awful.
