I was an avid reader of books before my work took most of my time so now I listen to Audible books when I'm exercising or walking my dog. I like mystery and thriller novels, particularly good serial killer novels. I'm a writer and a psychotherapist.
I hadn't listened to this author before and was pleasantly surprised to hear a very good mystery that didn't drag, kept the tension throughout, and had an excellent narrator. I'm getting my next Lia Gardner book right now!
A totally unexpected ending. All do not live happily ever after, but it satisfies.
Tulip! I love Tulip. She steels the stage in this one.
I don't follow this series per se, but this book makes me re-think that.
DD Warren softens.
Yes, but it took two days.
I like Kirsten reading. I got a bit confuse as to which character was which because the voices each sounded the same.
The story is great. I really enjoyed how in the beginning everything seems to be pointed out and then you start getting more details towards the right direction. Kirsten narration is very easy to follow and I liked her a lot.
There were multiple scenes when you describe running in Boston and how she felt that were truly great because I could feel myself doing it and imagining everything.
In the beginning no, but as I the story started developing, I found myself not wanting to stop listening.
Great thriller. I really recommend it.
This was my first novel that I read by Lisa Gardner so I wasn't sure what to expect. It was an entertaining read - but it was hard to read. The investigation seemed mediocre, especially to be representing Boston PD. Fictional mysteries need to seem plausible and actual in order for me to really appreciate them and this was not one of them. It was worse than watching CSI - highly predictable, which is astonishing because the author provided little to no evidence for the crimes that were committed. The story catches you in the background but in the actual investigation and layout of what happens it just crumbles somehow.
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
I enjoyed the audio edition of Catch Me.
Yes, because it has a nice catch at the conclusion.
When they proposed to each other.
Non-fiction, fiction--I read widely. Except bodice rippers. I'd rather pull my own eyelashes out than read romance. Avid, happy reader.
I tend to figure out what's going on too quickly when reading suspense thrillers and mysteries, but this one kept me guessing much longer than usual. --And without resorting to ridiculous red herrings, or at the expense of the plot. It's an enjoyable read, with unobtrusive narration (that's a good thing, in my book, where there isn't a natural platform for a great performance, like Shantaram, or The Help, for example), and nice character development. I like a guilty pleasure like this, but it can't be stupid or poorly-written. This isn't.
I love books! Fantasy, Science Fiction, Romance, or Thrillers...from JD Robb to Steven King! I <3 them ALL!!
The book was hard to keep up with until it was over half way thru.....half the time I caught myself listening but not paying attention because I was trying to figure out who was who constantly.....
I like that it was about a mentally disturbed person and the effects of that......and the effects of getting away.
Been a little more expressive with the characters....I could not tell which chapter was which they half the book.
It was worth listening to but I'm not excited to get another book by that author......it's ashamed too because the book could have been very interesting and intriguing!
Friend of God... Saved by grace... Mother of 3 gifts... Wife of one... Worship dancer.... Educated by God, Academia and Willy Wonka...
This book was intense - I cannot think of a better word. The characters were developed and the storyline realistic (a little too realistic). I did not want to keep reading (intensity at times) but I definitely did not want to put it down!
