Maybe not because the ending was so climatic.
The love Jacob's father had for his wife and his insight into her personality and that the book always kept you guessing but never knowing what was really going on.
He made vivid and real the personality of the main character.
Maybe "How far would you go to protect your child?"
I really enjoyed the mix of a lovely love story and a mystery, right to the very end.
Yes! Keeps u on your toes
Not sure maybe sharp objects by Gylan Flynn
I found the familial relationships interesting. Even though you see evidence against your son a parent has to believe in this son. Makes you think, "what would I do in a similar situation". What happens between the parents and child, the husband and wife, and even between old friends and neighbors is heart wrenching. But then you think how would I feel if this was my son, my neighbor, my friend. Even if you win, you don't.
The relationship issues and how you don't see the ending coming.
I found his voice easy to listen to and I liked his interpretation of the various characters. I have even looked for other books that he has narrated because I appreciated his narration of this story so much.
Worth the credit. Kept my interest.
I liked the concept of defending someone close to you even though you might have doubts about their innocense. This has to be a heart wrenching ordeal. I did not, however like any of the characters. There was no one that I could root for. They were all weak, both in character and ther inability to prosecute or defend Jacob. Jacob is a mealy mouthed teen age brat/loser. There is nothing about Jacob that is endearing.
This was my first Landay and have no great feelings one way or the other.
The narrations was ok, not great.
No, because I just couldn't get into any of the characters.
I could see the appeal for buying this book, but mostly I was disappointed...
Top of my list.
Made me laugh then shook my head. Parents can be very naive.
My favorite audiobook thus far. Great to see both sides of an attorney as a prosecutor and parent.
The story kept me wondering who really did it up until the end. I didn't want the story to end.
Mom for accepting the truth
I wouldn't change it
I enjoyed the fact that the book was not predictable and that the characters were not just your run of the mill characters. The author and narrator brought life to them.
The main character, Andy Barber. He was a character that was complex, all of his secrets and the story of his past did not come out too quickly, so you "learned" about the character throughout the book.
Mr. Lajudas, the prosecutor. I would want to ask him what were the real motives for prosecuting the case? Did he really believe in the guilt of the suspect or was he trying to get a big win to boost his career?
This was my first audible book and I enjoyed both the book and the narrator. I have purchased more books, made a wish list and really gotten in to audible books because of my first experience with this book, author and narrator.
The narrator does a good job, but this story is just dull. There's an an awful lot of tedious back-and-forth courtroom dialogue near the end of the book and I felt like it didn't cover any new territory that wasn't already familiar to the listener.
It's a relatively short audiobook, so I didn't give up, although I had no feeling of investment in the outcome of the story (not a ringing endorsement for a murder mystery!)
It was a well written book with a fantastic story that has you second guessing yourself along the way.
Did not care for the flashback device of a grand jury hearing on which to hang the narrative. I found it to be intrusive and artificially strained.
No, just not good enough for the "recommend to friends" category. Last book that fit that category was "Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter."
