Love Harlan Coben, starting long before he was was a best seller (check out the whole Myron Bolitar series). This book's story line doesn't hold together as well as normal, or generate strong interest in the characters (even with Scott Brick reading), but I am probably applying a very high stand because of my expectations from his other books.
Reader paid close attention the vvarious changes necessary to keep the tale alive. Voice changes were well done without being over done.
Probably not. There is a thread of cruelty that just does not interest me.
Gag would be response I have to the unnecessary cruelty.
This was my first Harlan Coben book. The narrator annoyed me a bit at first (he was a little breathy for me), but I got used to him and started to enjoy his performance. The story definitely kept me guessing - took me a while to figure out the ending, which had just enough twists and turns. Great suspense book!
Sure, it was an interesting story that was well told. Nothing spectacular, but was fun to listen to,
Once you get in to the flow of the book, he helps bring the excitement of the situations more to the fore front.
Yes, seems quite a bit like a book waiting to be made in to a movie.
I gave this 3 stars because I enjoyed it but there wasn't much out of the ordinary for me. It's the kind of thing that I specifically look to audio books for, so I was happy that I selected it.
I didn't know how I would feel about this audio book. I listened mainly because I wasn't due for two new books for a couple more weeks. But, I listened to this story and from the very first chapter, I knew I would enjoy it. The three main characters are brought together again after a murder(?) 17 years ago and as the story unfolded, I must have guessed four different people who could have done the deed and didn't really guess correctly until close to the end of the book. It was simply great. Scott Brick did an excellent narration. I will definitely listen to more stories by this author and narrator.
Yes. It's typical HB, but what he does, he does very well. Great story, suspense, character conflict and development.
Scott Brick reads a lot of HB books, and I generally enjoy him. He's a little melodramatic in his reading, but he's consistently good and knows how to distinguish between different character voices. He makes the listening experience easy.
Loved this book... I stayed up till 3 am to finish this book...
The book just dragged and dragged, it was hard to follow at times,but I love the author, and not just bolitar novels. This was my first real disappointment.
I am usually a fan of Harlan Coben but when he often gets on the subject of love or guilt he gets sappy, writes like a High School student, and sounds like a amatuer. The story is fun to a degree but the depressed characters and much of the sappy dialogue drags the story down. This same soap opera drama and guilt is also evident in Harlan's last few Mayron Bolitar novels. I hope this is a phase he moves pasts soon.
The story caught my attention from the beginning. Even though I guessed who the murderer was 1/2 way through the book, I still want ed to finish the story. I had to know why!
