An avid reader, demanding of the story, characters and narrator. Mysteries and historical fiction are my favorites.
Great characters, twists and turns, a complex mystery, love story ... this book has it all. The narration was just average.
My first discovery of Harlen Coben. Stands out from many mystery writers, and I have read hundreds. I will definitely look for more work from this author. Even the parts I thought were predictable turned out to have great twists. And it all tied together logically.
I enjoy listening to audiobooks while woking in my shop or around the house -sort of mental multitasking.
This is a pretty good story. However, the authors style is very melodramatic - too much so for my taste. i did not hate this book, however, I will not download another by this author soon.
I wish they would retire Scott Brick -- his wildly melodramatic readings are quite a problem considering I have entirely too many unheard audiobooks that I see are read by him ---- aaaaack. I won't buy anymore by him now that I know about his over-acting. He causes the characters to lack dignity, and that is too bad with The Woods because Cope, the main character, has a lot of dignity. I eventually switched to reading it as an ebook, and that worked better. Great thriller, I thought, gasping surprises and a complex but very clear plot. One of Coben's best standalone thrillers.
I am a retired Court Reporter and I LOVE books. All kinds of books but my favorites are mysteries and period books. I like civil war books and some biographies.
It's pretty good. I love mysteries and it held my attention. I would probably recommend it. And I might get another book by this author.
This is a good human interest mystery, and when it is read by Scott Brick, it was very enjoyable. I like Iles books, in general and this one was one of the best.
In my opinion the story was well written, the narrator was very good, and if you lived in the 60's & 70's during the cold war and wide drug use it is all very feasible.
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.
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 story was pretty good. I like Coben because his stories are not predictable. The Woods was no exception!
I like how the main character, Paul, struggles with various moral dilemmas throughout this story.
I typically LOVE Scott Brick's voice. I was a little put off in this story because there were a few characters with Russian accents. Mr. Brick needs to work on his Russian accent. I felt like I was listening to Count Chocula at times.
