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.
You're Next definitely makes my top 5 list.
Scott Brick is an awesome narrator. He read each character in a distinctly different voice. His portrayal of each character really brought the story to life. I was completely drawn into the story.
You're Next is a great listen especially with Scott Brick's narration. It is written in true suspense/thriller form. The story has a lot of twists and turns to keep the listener captivated. As in most thrillers, murder is expected, but you will never guess why. The climax of the story did not disappoint. I was so drawn in that I actually chose listening to this book over watching my regular TV shows.
I would recommend you get this book it is a thriller until the end, and I won't tell the end for those who haven't listened to it yet, but it is well worth getting....
This was one of the best books I've read since joining audible this past summer.
It reminded me of a Harlan Coben book. It was fast paced with something always happening. It never stalled.
.....maybe it reminded me of a Harlan Coben book because Scott Brick preformed it. He could read the phone book and make it sound exciting.
Definitely made me wish I was on a long road trip and didn't have to stop listening.
It left me wanting more.
This is one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time. I had to stop it because it was too stressful to listen too. Amazing twists and turns and emotional roller coaster. I could not wait to listen to it but was a little hesitant to go back into this world. I hardly ever write reviews and I listen to about 3 books a month. This one, I felt I had to write about.
This is a very, very good story and an awesome plot. Scott Brick as always does a great job as narrator. I was especially impressed with The main character Mike's unbounded love for his wife and daughter, and his incredible ability to interact with his daughter--most notably at the very end of the book.
Suspensful, fast paced
Yes, there was always a new twist
I have always enjoyed Scott Brick's performances. This did not disappoint.
When life seems to be going to good, it is...
I'm going to be looking for more books by Gregg Hurwitz :)
For all of you reviewers out there, I want you to know how important you are to me. Reviews are very powerful. Thought you should know.
...and yet, you won't want it to end, either. This book, like most Gregg Hurwitz' books, grabs you by the throat, raises the hairs on the back of your neck, and you'll love every second of it. The plot is original, characters fascinating and multifaceted, and the action constant.
If you're a fan, as I am, of thrillers and suspense, Gregg Hurwitz will spoil you for just about every other author of this genre. The Survivor, The Crime Writer, and They're Watching are also top-notch thrillers by this author, and I highly recommend all of them.
Yes, it is so well narrated and a great story and characters.
Shep and the narrator and the plot.
He brings life to all the characters and is so good.
The whole book was riveting.
