Between work , kids , school and everything that life shoves at us I need a GOOD Book
I hadn't expected to enjoy this listen , it was a nice surprise. it left me feeling sorry for being so judgmental
This story was very intriguing because I did not expect the twists and turns of the plots as the story unfolded. It was very sad -and it could actually happen. If we knew more of the stories of missing teens, I think we would be horrified at what they may have had to endure. It is just so hard to believe...
I also enjoy his books
I downloaded this ages ago but was so upset by the premise of the good guy being "caught" that I stopped listening. I tried again and finished the book in a day. The story was pretty engrossing and I enjoyed trying to figure out "whodunnit." Having said that, though, there were parts of the story that I just didn't follow - in particular, the part where the tv judge/attorney stymies the police with superior logic that completely lost me. I also wasn't sure I bought how closely the police were willing to work with a reporter but, ok, suspend disbelief. In the end, I couldn't stop listening. As for the performer(s), they didn't bother me. That said, my husband finds almost all my audiobook narrators irritating so maybe I have a high tolerance.
I enjoyed this book, and really appreciate when an author can give you twists that you can't see coming, or figure out as they are coming. Good job!
Now I will admit, this book sat on my iPod for more than 6 months. But once I got into it, wow! I could kid that it has everything people seem to want, should you watch the entertainment media (while cynical I believe an evening viewing would prove me true). But this has so many twists that you can't help but start to reflect on your own values and presumptions. And if a book of fiction can provoke that, what more can be asked of a novel.
If you believe that there has been a dangerous turn over the years away from news and toward the scandalous, but still love mysteries, this book is, or should be, a prime choice for you.
Just when you think you've figured out where Coben is going, he's got another chapter--and another--and another!
It is a best seller and it was good. Not great but you will enjoy it.
