Great story, great characters, well read, couldn't put this book down. Couldn't figure out where the story was headed for the longest time but instead of getting frustrated I was totally engaged. Stayed up all night to hear the plot unfold… it actually unfolds a couple of times … loved this book.
I have always loved to read but I never realized how enjoyable listening to a good story could be! I am addicted!
I normally like a softer read, but I really got caught up in this story. I will definitely try another from this author when I am ready for something more high risk again.
Yes, this story definitely keeps you on the edge of your seat. It didn't start out that way, but after about 3 or 4 hours the story really ramped up.
Some of the images described were disturbing to me, but they are well written and the story has a good ending.
First Gregg hurwitz book - it has you wanting to know more with each chapter
Yes, I would get home from work and sit in the car and continue to listen
This great book made such an impression on me that I've already started reading "The Survivor". The characters are beautifully developed and the story pulls you along on a tight thread of suspense, mystery and emotion. The story was complex and unexpected....I can see why it was recommended by David Baldacci.
Yes. Great twists and turns. Kept me guessing.
Yes. Great story with some very interesting characters.
A little melodramatic at times, but as the book went on, I came to appreciate his ability to bring the characters to life.
Yes, but that would have been a very long sitting...
I'll be checking out some of this author's other books soon.
Difficult to get through. Not much good happens, no joy, little humor.
Rewrite the story.
No problem with the narrator.
Disappointment. I've enjoyed other books by Mr. Hurwitz but struggled to finish this one.
The performance was spectacular. I really enjoyed that part. The relationship between Shep and Mike is great and one I could readily identify with. What put me off was the tree hugger agenda pushed earlier in the story and the snotty little brat girl (Cat). I would never let an 8 year old dictate business decisions and her act of being upset and way too adult really grated after a while.
The absolute loyalty between Shep and Mike.
I was captivated from the start- This book was written in such a way as to have me intrigued and trying to guess from the start! But don`t waste energy trying , cause the whole suspense, reason will surprise you! And the narrator brought to life the emotions involved in this intricate book. It is worth choosing. Happy reading
More than once I stayed in the car not wanting to stop listening, in parking areas, near grocery stores, the garage at home, etc. More than once crying, or my heart beating fast wanting to know what will happen next...I was sorry when I finished this book- It was saying goodbye to a good friend, till NEXT time.
This is the first book I've "read" from Greg Hurwitz, and I'm hooked!! Great plot, interesting characters, and super action. I read a lot of these type books, and this one surprised me with the plot twists and turns - that doesn't happen often. Will definitely be looking for more of his books.
I've been a fan of Scott Brick's narration for years - he can do no wrong with me :-))
Married "mom" of 3 crazy dogs and 1 cat! I developed a love for reading just after college & only recently for audio. Loving it so far!
It's amount the top - it starts out well, and the suspense keeps you listening... But it becomes too much of a good thing.
Yes. I will try another or two before making a decision to add him to my favorite authors. He did well holding the suspense and some of the characters were impossible not to like.
Shep! Not sure I would've loved him as much in the text version, but the narrators performance of him was endearing!
Until about 3/4 of the way through! Then it became more and more of a stretch - and more effort to listen. I was becoming tired of the cat & mouse and wanted it to get to the point.
It was a good premise. The original issue of the problem with the main characters building dilemma got lost for a long while. The revelation of why Mike was being sought out was a bit far fetched, but it is just a story and overall - a good one. Nice listen.
