I really, really wanted to like this audiobook.
The premise is intriguing and Scott Brick is among my favorite narrators.
Alas, after a good start The Survivor slumps into a very predictable story line with stereotypical and, in the case of our hero's daughter and her boyfriend, almost cartoon-ish
Scott Brick delivers what might be his best performance to date but he just can't save The Survivor.
I am hesitant to recommend The Survivor even as a summer beach listen...try either Mr. Mercedes or Finders Keepers instead.
The story started out a bit slow for me, the backtracking anyway. The story took off tho and I was entertained
When i first bought the book i thought ok Die Hard meets Man on a ledge this might be fun but no idea how the plot and character devlopment would keep me glued to the book
Because he wasn't the classic hero he is but like the rest of us he just trying to save his family and he has nothing to loose
No sorry i haven't but i will look for him in the future
Die Hard meets Man on a Ledge
Hurwitz has joined my group of favorite authors. He does It all. Great story, interesting characters, and lots of fast paced action. His books are batting a thousand so far. Add Scott Brick as the narrator and you have a winner. Brick is one of my all time favorites. I have no doubt I'll read every one.
The book is extremely interesting because it battles issues that are sometimes hard to talk about and hard to deal with. My only complaint is that I wish the narrator would be more distinction vocally between the different characters in the family otherwise I have to say this is an excellent book and worthy of your time to listen to
This book takes U in from the start....U'll think U know where it's going but U don't....I can see it made into a movie....the reader really keeps U in & evolved. ...really enjoyed it....r
