Yes. It gripped me from start to finish.
Nate. He was dealing with dying and still trying to make things right with his wife and child.
he was awesome narrating this book
I didnt want the story to end.
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
You're Next because each character was running for their life but for different reasons. Both a GREAT listen.
He brings the characters to life. A great performance.
The daughter's boyfriend would not leave her side no matter what!
A great writer with a great narrator.
I was shocked that the intro was so riveting and that the story managed to hold my attention throughout. A good book.
This is a story about a man, Nate, who is going to commit suicide due to only having a short while left to live. During his suicide attempt a bank robbery occurs right inside the window. Nate climbs in the window and saves the day... almost. What ensues is the cat and mouse game where Nate is battling with inner demons and real terrors threatening his family. This story made me laugh, cry, and cling to the next part of the story. What a roller coaster ride this was. Recommended to anyone wanting a good thrill ride.
I liked Nate. He genuinely wanted to do the right thing.
Since Charles stayed with him throughout, it reminded me of the show "Rescue Me" with Dennis Leary.
Yes, many. I like him in everything except the Lincoln Child books. I can't stand the superior southern gentleman accent. It's annoying.
Yes. I finished it immediately.
A well-written story can create many different emotions in the listener. I almost stopped listening to this book in the early chapters - not because the book was bad, but because it was too good. The author did such an amazing job of bringing the character, situations and emotions to life that I felt as if I was in Nate's shoes and suffering right along with him. And early on in the story that was almost too much to handle.
However, I overcame my "emotional turmoil" and finished this book and am glad I did. This story is top notch from beginning to end. If I have one critique it is that it drags a small bit in a few places, but nothing egregious.
This book is truly amazing and you know it is hard to go wrong with Scott Brick narrating. Don't hesitate to pick this one up.
My hearing will surely go out early in life due to all the audiobooks I listen to!
The tittle of the book does it justice. Nate Overbay is a survivor, but he survives more than mere mortal extinction (be it by his own hand or another). Nate is a professional crisis responder. This job entails that he deliver the unfortunate news of a persons death tot he family be it due to car crash, homicidal gunman, etc. But a certain experience he survives in war, defines his being and haunts/nags him in everyday life.
A story that will make you get goosebumps and bask in the good that humanity can do and what lengths a father/husband with a purpose and unyielding love will do to secure a safe future for his family. If that doesn't get you interested, the simple fact that Scott Brick narrates the story should. We all know he is one of the best.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen.
gut-wrenching, jaw-clenching suspense
Nate but Charlie and Casper were close seconds.....what can you say about a father and husband who would do anything to protect his family?
Fabulous....I loved him in You're Next....his narration adds so much to the characters, their emotions are evident as he speaks.............
The good guy wins or does he?????
This book takes a toll on the emotions much like You're Next, I had to stop half way through and listen to a more uplifting story before continuing on, so be prepared.
Born to read
it took me a while to get into the book-- am not sure why -- stop about 2 hours in . A friend told me how much they enjoyed it I went ahead and got back to listening.
it was good! a few parts that were a little unbelievable but it was a good story. I have now read all of this authors work and must say it brings to the table a very good read-- I mean listen!
It grabbed me the second I started it and never let me go...I love scott brick and am now a fan of Gregg Hurwitz.
I have listen to this twice!!!
