Didn't want to stop listening! Spellbinding.
OMG - the trip to Jamaica and the final outcome made me gasp, even though I suspected what was going to happen it still made chills run up my spine.
I was fascinated by Jacob, his secrets and behaviors were compelling.
Don't Have Children!
I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday.
This is a tale that's been told before (in at least one classic film) but rarely as well as this book tells it. It's going to be hard to discuss this without throwing spoilers out there. The author hooks the reader from the start and slowly reveals puzzle pieces as the book progresses in a skillfully written peek-a-boo fan dance of clues and emotional revelations. Echoes with elements of one recent true crime story in particular - I can say no more! Very well done.
The ending was completely unpredictable. I also liked that we could not see into Jacob's mind any more than his parents could.
The description of the car ride Jacob takes with his mother.
Yes I feel this story could happen to anyone, and it creates good discussions. It keeps you on the edge of the sit.
This is an enjoyable experience because it truly mimics what our teenagers lives have become in 2012. The use of social media and the internet has totally impacted how we can allow ourselves to live in room with only one view which totally destroys who we were made to be.
The best part if this story is that it has several climatic episidoes that you can not see coming.
I loved his voice for this type of book. He developed each character through his voice.
What the mother did to save her community from Jacob.
Cant wait to hear more from the author.
I love the way Grover reads to me. I didn't like this book
tragic. terrible. well written. well read.
I really loved this book! The unexpected twists and turns will make it hard to remove the headphones.
The vacation experience took me by surprise.
The twists & turns
All of them! Grover was excellent!
Book kept me hooked so it is difficult to select one, At one point, I would have gladly shot the wife!
narration was ok
I think the author wanted to go home early after running out of ideas on how to end the story or was he thinking of a sequel ? either way I felt cheated
