kept me glued to my ear phones. Great characters and interesting story lines which keep you guessing
Detective Broome is relentless!
Scott keeps you engaged in the story by his magnificent story telling.
loved the ending, never saw it coming!
It seemed very disjointed---no good transition between character's stories and I normally like Coben's books...
I love Brick's voice and presentation, but again, found the story difficult to follow
One of the best books I have listened to. I love Scott Brick, but didn't know the author. The book is well written, characters deep and believable. I certainly recommend this to anyone, the story is great, you get lost in it, will defo get more of his books.
Scott Brick brings out the emotions of the characters, he does it with so effortlessness that I cannot imagine anyone else reading this book.
I heard it in three sittings - and that was only because my phones battery ran out one of the times.
Lot a hoopla about this one, but I have no idea why. Even Scott Brick couldn't save this story. It wandered around, to and fro, this and that, to the point one no one longer cared. Not really. Enjoyed Scott's reading, but not too much else.
Major conclusions drawn on thin evidence. A corrupt cop that gets away with it. and a killer that confesses for no reason. Got through most of it at double speed. I love Brick, but he didn't fit here.
Definitely among the top 20 (I really do listen to a lot of books)... an entertaining "read", the type that makes you think about choices you make, people's pasts.
it is similar to other Harlan Coben books -- you can tell it's his for certain -- but not an overplayed story. I felt like the suspense was close to a David Baldacci in a way!
Harlan Coben is one of those authors that consistently delivers. If you like one of his novels, you'll like the others. Stay Close has a flow that lends itself well to audiobook format. It's exciting enough to keep you guessing, but doesn't overdo it with so many details that you lose track of the characters, key clues and or plot elements if you're listening while driving or doing chores. It does become a bit annoying in sections where Coben falls into repetitive allusions as he tries to hammer home certain characters' motivations, flaws or histories. You feel like saying "yeah, yeah, I get it already...."
I usually figure out "who done it," but this one had me right up until just before the reveal. Good surprise.
You feel like he is a cop from Atlantic City telling you the story even though it's third-person narrative.
Not really an inspirational kind of book. Just entertaining.
Worth a credit for sure.
As in his earlier novels, things from the past come back to haunt the protagonists. "Stay Close" lacks the realism of prior works like "Tell No One", though. Killing couple Ken & Barbie were just a bit over the top, I thought.
Another brilliant performance by - in my opinion - the best male reader in audio books. Hats off to Scott Brick - again.
I am a Harlan Coben fan although I have not read anything of his is quite awhile ( actually read!), his writing going into another direction than what I was interested in. At the begiining of this book, I had a hard time getting into it. I found it too 'wordy', too descriptive and made me wonder if I had missed a book. I didn't give up on it. I was tired of wasting credits. I stuck with it because I am a Scott Brick fan. I'm glad I did. It was a good listen. Kept you going after awhile wanting to know more about the lives of the characters. The desciptions that I had thought too much, became necessary to know the people involved, the story in itself.. Detective Broome is an extremely likeable character. I'm glad I kept listening and glad I picked a Harlan Coben book again. This audio is well worth it.
