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.
I hate this book. Note the present tense. For the second time in over 20 yrs of listening to audio books, I quit a book. Stopped at four LONG hrs. Too much simplistic pontificating from philosophical and psychological points of view. Coben does this in his other books but the plots make his diversions a little more palatable. The book is full of filler too. The narrator is not believable. Too much inflection in her voice. Bad singing. Yes, there is even rap in this terrible book!
