The story isn't bad but OMG, I'd like to smack the crap out of the narrator. When he reads normally, like in the preview, it's great. Then he does the nasally teenage and woman's voice, or the fey British voice, or the gruff tough guy voice and grunts... Ummmm, no. This is not a bedtime story, I don't need make believe voice to make the story more interesting.
I love books!
I'd never heard of this author, probably only got it because Audible put it on the front page and it looked interesting. It was entertaining, it was interesting, was it the best book I've ever listened to, no, will I listen to another Finder, most likely.
A fast and entertaining read, not a great story and as one reviewer noted, it has some holes; but keeps moving. However I cannot recommend to friends in audio format. The nasal whining of the teenager almost fits, but he uses the same voice half the time for the wife and it just doesn't work, makes her into a sniveling stereotype of the vulnerable dependent female that does not fit the story line at all. Buy the book for a good beach read, but stay away from this version.
I listen to about 2 books every 10 days.I could NOT bring myself to hear this one out. The narrator was so boring I could not get into the book !
I give the narrator a 4.5 but the story is a 3. It had all the makings of a great read but the plot miss-fires a bit to much and is difficult to follow. It's just not very plausable and the author doesn't really explain how the villian tries to pull it off. Still a good read though.
This book was exciting, riveting and really kept my attention. It was a bit predictable but then had a few good twists and turns. I do agree with one of the others here, that the voice of the son was about as annoying as any I've heard in years. even when he was happy he sounded like he was whining and crying. The Mom's wasn't much better. If you can get past that, I thought it was a great read.
I was looking forward to the start of a new series by an author I like. I was hoping for the start of something comparable to the Myron Bolitar series (Coben) or the John Correy series(DeMille). This was nothing close - very dissapointing.
For a series how about start with a little character development - there was very little. Okay he's a cocky ex-special forces guy - got it, but not much else to say. Not a great sense of humor and how about a little romance - zero. He could have hooked up with the sister-in-law or at least started to. At least throw a girlfriend in there.
Not much else needs to be said about the reader different from the other reviews. He was just bad. I'm not giving up on Finder, but I think this series is DOA. Company Man was good. Killer Instinct was awesome (both read by Scott Brick). This just sucked. Don't waste a credit.
