Suspenseful, kept interested, felt part of the story, could feel his pain and love for his family. Felt the freedom he had when it was over.
Sure, I'd love to hear your story....
I think I've concluded that Gregg Hurwitz's secret to success is not in writing great stories or great heroes, it's in writing truly fully fleshed out and sinister bad guys! The one in Survivor is perfect! Terrifying and human at the same time - - such a unique character. This book was pretty good at not being formulaic in all of its aspects - - not an easy accomplishment with thrillers. But, I've listed to three of the author's story in a row and I'm hooked. Excellent standalone titles that really keep you engaged and guessing. Just well done.
Dark, depressing, emotionally exhausting & worth it. One of best books I've read. Almost stopped after 1st. chp. but kept with it through every gut wrenching chp.
Enjoyable book, very well read. Character development was very good in the beginning, however the story lost luster for me in the middle. It just seemed like there was one violent encounter after another between the two main protagonists. I just do t know how many times two people can meet, go at each other, then escape, only to go back at it a few chapters later.
The beginning and the end were well developed, even if the end came up very quickly.
The writing is decent - draws out suspense too much but has good dialogue part of the time. If you are looking for something to pass the time, it should do the trick.
I like Scott Brick and his performances are always solid. However, the book was a big disappointment; the story was predictable and the plot was unbelievable. I had trouble buying into the reaction of many of the main characters to the primary conflict in the story. Definitely would not recommend this to others and wish that I had the time and money back that was spent on this book.
Better story that didn't jump back and forth so much.
Something with some movement...ahead.
I enjoy Scott Brick, typically it's the reason I purchase a book.
I can handle most books. The reader is typically the thing that makes or breaks a book. The book looked like a great story, until it dragged on and on going back then forward then back and then forward and then...
I liked the relationship between Janie and Nate
janie and notes first time again!
I was bummed when Although I knew it could only end one way found myself wishing it would be different!
I will read other books by this author!
I loved the fast pace suspense of this novel. The determination of the protagonist to change things was admirable. This was my second book by Gregg Hurwitz and I look forward to reading more. Scott Brick's a great narrator and is one of my favorites.
