It gripped me from the beginning and didn't let go. At times it was almost upsetting, it was so suspenseful. I often listen to books to fall asleep, but this one kept me awake. While the story line was pretty improbable, I didn't really care. What I did care about is that the characters were true and had depth. I think they were all true to themselves and their choices rang true to me. I totally didn't see the resolution coming and I liked that too. Highly recommend this book if you like the thriller genre.
Not your usual. I had this on my wish list for a long time, finally took a chance and downloaded it. I was very glad for a story that kept my attention and kept me guessing.
The Woodcutter perhaps. The character's backstory is as riveting as the present threat.
The introduction of the main character's childhood friend.
No extreme reaction. Just a good, solid, well-told tale.
The author does a very good job of weaving events and characters into focus. No wasted effort, everything ties neatly here and there. The result is a satisfying story with characters you slowly get to know and like, or not, as the case may be with the heavies. Even then, you are confronted with a sympathetic thread or two.
Love books, all kinds, all shapes, all formats! Audiobooks have made my daily commute so much less stressful! Major fan of Audible.
Stayed on the edge of my seat througout. Would never have guessed who was after this man or his daughter or why.
Shep - the safe cracker - whose motto of "the only things that matter in life are stamina & loyalty".
I think Scott Brick could read me the back of a cereal box and I would stay interested!
A strong case for the fact that life does not necessarily have to "repeat itself"!
Loved the book. Am going to download more Gregg Hurwitz as soon as I have credits!
Although some people didn't like Scott Brick, I didn't mind him as an narrator. I have listened to other books he has done and like his calm style. I think the main character in the book has been working hard, most of his adult life, to keep his life looking as average as possible. I think the restrained narration brings those feelings to the character. I liked the suspense in this book. You are surprised in many of the plot twist and most of them feel believable. It is one of those books you can see easily turning into a movie. The only thing I found annoying was the daughter character. She was way too precocious for 8. Over all, I think it was a credit well spent. Not the best book I've ever read but a good read none the less.
Lots of times I start a book in the car and can go weeks before I am traveling again and pick it up. Sometimes I can't even remember what the book was about and have to rewind it. "You're Next" was the type of thriller I couldn't put down. I listened to it on walks, doing dishes and any chance I got.
Gripping, I loved listening to it but I never listen to a book twice
Excellent thriller- john hart novel
yes- he is a great storyteller
Just when you thought the story could not get more exciting - it did!
I truly felt like I was on a long jog - and then was forced to jog further. In fact, this is the first audio book I felt compelled to listen to during my daily workout - could not put it down.
Definitely worth listening to again. The first listen is too full of tension on the listener's end. Want to hear it again and pick up even more threads of this great plot.
Shep: Loyal, dependable, forgiving, brings solutions to the situations - not more problems. Forges ahead despite the many strikes already against him.
Shep: Scott Brick portrays this person so very realistically. Having worked with hearing impaired individuals, Scott Brick performs Shep's speech in a realistic, believable manner, leaving the listener with a clear
Looking forward to more books by this author.
Mr. Brick nailed the character Shep's voice. This was a suspenseful novel, yet I found myself with a tiny grin every time Shep spoke--because he was just so well done.
