i loove great books especially mystery and suspense and gregg hurwitz
I really enjoyed this first book I can't wait to listen to the other two, I saw a lot of complaints on here about how it wasn't like patient zero but I think that's the beauty of it I don't want to read the same book
IT Knowledge Quest
Tom Weiner’s narration was great. You get pulled into the story quickly. The characters are interesting and are developed early on in the story. The darkness in the story is gradually revealed and is frightening. Try this book if you want a good solid horror story outside of the usual writers. It moves at a good pace and the characters are created fully with great narration.
The least helpful reviewer on audible.
The reason I got this title is because I kept seeing Jonathan Maberry books on audible so I looked him up on wikipedia and I decided to listen to his whole cannon in the order that he wrote them. This was the first book. So, I bought it without really reading the description or any of the reviews on it.
Then I listened to it.
I wasn't sure how to feel about this book once I finished it. So, I checked out some of the other reviews to see what they thought and it seems unanimous that the people who liked the Joe Ledger series hated this. One reviewer called it a train wreck. I have not read nor listened to the Joe Ledger series so I can't make the comparison, but I think calling this a train wreck is a little too much. To be Maberry's first novel I have to say he did a tremendous job. Yes, it's a little over ambitious, it gets a little cartoony at times and there's a few contradictions in the plot line, but none of that is so major that it takes away from the overall enjoyment. If Maberry's books only get better from here I'm excited about completing my goal.
There were a lot of people who hated Tom Weiner's narration. For the most part I thought he did fine, even better than fine in some scenes. However, there were parts of the book where the dialog was really bad and I am still not sure if it was the writing or the reading that made it so bad. The worst I can say about Weiner's performance is that it wasn't very consistent, but overall I think it was worthy of four stars.
Bottom line; This was a pretty good book, and considering it was the author's first novel it was really good.
there is no horror. when you buy a horror book you expect it to scare you if you are alone and you are reading at night. this predictable story does not cut it. won't waste my credits on the rest of the series.
Just this fox who plays export analyst by day and horror writer by night.
I liked the story but the performance didn't enhance it so much as reminded me there was a guy with a deep voice reading it. May the later books are more refined by I'm not ready to dive in to listen.
The story starts out slow, and The narrators voice doesn't change a whole lot which makes it kind of hard to follow. But by the end it was a great book and I became accustomed to the narrator's
Middle-aged, married dad of two, living in Northern Burbs of Chicago. Hard Sci Fi addict, and lover of great storytelling. Almost all of my reading is now in audio format.
Nerdy, mundane, cliche.
Maybe I'm just jaded, but it's really trite.
The author's voice is awkward and ...nerdy is the best way I can describe it. I just get really tired of being disappointed by hours of suspense for mediocre highlights.
As long as it wasn't as crude, gross, and dirty as this one. Tom Weiner does a good job at the narration, too bad it's a yuck story
I just don't like stories that everyone is sick in the mind---dirty thoughts, want to hurt people and enjoy hurting people, dirty sex, devious, lying shameful people. I like a good ghost story or murder story, it just has to have some redeeming qualities.
