I've yet to be disappointed with a Coben novel and this is no different. I do prefer the Myron Bolitar books still but this one is a nice, easy read.
I wouldn't say edge of my seat, but definitely wanting more. There were times that I sat in my car to finish a scene before I could turn it off.
I'm a long-time fan of Harlan Coben and always get his books as soon as they come out. This is the first book of his that I haven't liked. It's not like one of his normal books. I quit listening halfway through, I just couldn't force myself to stay with it. The narrator is fine, but the book just didn't have the depth & plot that his books always have. This one seemed too rushed. I'm still a fan of Coben, just not of this book.
Definately, I love Scott Brick. He always does an excellent job with the narration. I could listen to anything that he reads.
Lots of twists and turns.
Yes, lots of danger and psychos
Clear voice. Each character unique voice.
Surprise ending and the creeps got what they deserved.
Outward appearances are deceptive but it's the heart that matters.
I don't think the plot line was epic or such a page turner as to stop daily activities but it was enjoyable. All in all, I wouldn't tell a friend to rush to the bookstore for it but its worthwhile if you have it.
You can learn as much from a terrible book as a brilliantly written one.
No, but i have heard he is brilliant, and he was. He has a way of keeping with the tension in the book, adding to Coben's already intense plot even.
This book was the first I read by Coben. I fell in love by the fast pace and intense moments. There never a dull moment. It is written so that you are always on the edge of your chair listening, thinking, even starting to attempt in solving the mystery yourself.
In short, definitely worth reading. If you like thrillers, you would love this one.
Yes - I always enjoy a Harlan Coben but this was not his best...or perhaps the seedy side of the characters was a bit depressing for me.
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!
