Tell us about yourself! I am addicted to Audio Books I read them all the time in the car, doing dishes, ironing, What ever.
Coben is one of my favorites and I will always read his books. He is so much better now.
Pretty good for his first book. Many say that it's transparent, but it's still leaves enough doubt to keep you guessing. Brick delivers another good performance. The story takes place in the 1980's, and there's a reference to 'the latest hit single from Chaka Khan or Samantha Fox' ... woah, hot-tub time machine.
If I could trade this book back in, I would.
I'm sorry I didn't pay attention to who was reading it. I love Harlan Coben's work, however, I would happily pass reading this book with Scott Brick narrating the entire text. For some reason, Scott Brick makes the story seem like it is endless and there is suspense were none was intended.
Coben's Play Dead has a strong story line as is usual with Harlan Coben's work. Unfortunately, this is the only good comment I can make. The delivery of this tale is so fraught with hyperbole as to be burgeoning on satire. Coben's warning while appreciated was deficient in preparing the listener for the painful experience to ensue. The story line was worth the pain but just. If you choose to on this adventure I recommend you equip yourself with your best sense of humor.
Im new to Audible, and so far all my downloads have great choices. I kind of figured I'm bound to pick a bad one, but I really had no idea how bad. This book needs to be exposed, for soul purpose of preventing the next person from making the same mistake as I. I never got passed the six chapter, and it so boring I dont think I will. Things that should be obvious for the characters to figure out, and would make sense in other books, seems like an enigma to them. The narrator just prolongs the agony, and makes it even harder to get connected. Heck what do I know, I'm not a writer just a customer, but remember you've been warned.
This book is a early book of the author that is being re-released. It's not as good as later ones. The story runs to long, is repetetive, and the language is corny and lame. Finally the plot is so far fetched and unbelievable that on his true fans find can forgive him for it.
It is fun somewhat but it is way to long winded.

I enjoy Harlan Corben 's books...I have all of his Myron Bolitar books...In this one...it took me a long while to figure out "who dunnit"...This is a really good listen...! I couldn't put is down...!!
Harlan Coben doesn't disappoint in his first book despite his comments at the beginning. The plot twists and turns and keep you interested. This book is worth the credit!
I kept finding excuses to sit with my Ipod and keep listening. It wasn't to hard to figure out what was going on early on in the story but there was a wonderful twist in the end. I love Harlan Coben and this is definitely on of my recent favorites.
The forward to this book by the author said to return this book if this was your first time listening to me. I was dubious about the book and thought I might return it (if I don't like books from Audible, I return them). The story and narrator drew me in. This was one of my favorite books by this author. Kept me guessing till the end. Half way through, I was thinking this is a very good listen, but there is no way it can have a good ending.
I was surprised.
I've always liked to listen to books Scott Brick narrates.
No extreme reaction.
Do yourself a favor and get this book. It took me a week to listen to the 17+ hours. You will wish you could hear more.
