Ambiguously Intriguing Suspense
I would compare Catch Me to Carnal Innocence (Nora Roberts) because both are pleasing mystery novels that had me fully engaged and dubious till the end.
I have a very active imagination, so I can't say definitively that the story was better due to solely Kirsten's performance. However, that isn't to say that I didn't enjoy her acting skills. Out of my audio books listens, she is one of my favorite voice artists thus far.
My eyes slightly started to water during the climax. I was just sadden by the muddledness of it all. Side note: I am purposely watching my words, because I don't want to give anything away.
Lisa Gardner has gained a new fan...I plan to listen and/or read all of her books now!!! I also will look for other books narrated by Kirsten Potter, since her voice and differentiation amongst the characters' voices were very pleasant and discernable.
This is one of the best mysteries I have heard. It kept me wondering for most of the story.
The Cuckoos Calling because both are exceptional mysteries.
Yes I have and I am impressed with her performance in this one.
Yes. I almost did! I had to go to bed with 3 hours left.
I like mysteries, classics, and good non-fiction. Much of my audible listening takes place when I am working out and sweaty, so I like good plot-driven thrillers.
This was an intricate mystery that captured and sustained my interest. It was sufficiently plausible that I did not feel that the author cut corners or courted incredulity.
I think that the idea that it seems inevitable that you will die on a certain date -- by murder -- is intriguing. How does one cope? How does one gain credibility with the police?
She has a very effective voice.
It enthralled me.
I plan to listen to the other books in this series; this is the first one I heard but it's not the first in the series.
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.
