Kept you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.
The tenderness shown at Nate's father's cabin between the once estranged family members.....in sharp contrast to the other horrific scenes.
He is my favorite reader. He made a powerful and suspenseful book even more powerful and suspenseful.
Be prepared to be on a roller coaster ride of thrills.
Like mainly mystery and suspense with a bit of chick lit and non-fiction thrown in. Severe addiction going on 10 years to Audiobooks.
So I thought the book started out strong and that the main character's illness was an interesting twist. I was really enjoying it. Somewhere in the middle, it would be on and I wouldn't even be paying attention. It was dragging for me. All of a sudden it picked up in a whirlwind and I found myself eager to listen. All in all, a really good listen. It is hard to go wrong with Scott Brick as a narrator. He always delivers a solid performance.
I thoroughly enjoyed “Survivor” by Gregg Hurwitz.
It was quite a fast paced, exciting thriller. I liked the development of the characters, especially Nate Overbay. A very enjoyable read.
I have learned that Gregg Hurwitz has several really good books out there so I am definitely going to read more by him.
Scott Brick did a wonderful job narrating.
This was the second Gregg Hurwitz book and I liked it very much. Scott Brick is a fave narrator and he always lends credibility to a book in my estimation. Fast moving intricate unusual themed story.... so well read that you forget about the narrator.
As I sit here, still wiping away the tears, I had to write this review. I loved this book! I could not put it down! One of my favorites ... though, admittedly, emotionally and suspensefully draining by the end. I felt so much for the main character, Nate. Excellent book.
I read/listened to "The Program" by Mr. Hurwitz, but Mr. Brick's cadence as he is reading is annoying.
Not if Scott Brick is the narrator.
His reading style and cadence is not for me. The up and then down of every paragraph is too one-dimensional and doesn't indicate more subtle meaning like irony or dark humor.
I kept getting all the Russian names confused and ultimately didn't really care about any of the characters except maybe the dog. :-)
Despite the melancholy manner of the narrator, this story is a grabber. A man on a ledge about to commit suicide for all the wrong reasons, with too many loose ends left dangling in the breeze, suddenly, something happens that forces all choice to come into focus and be dealt with. I couldn't wait to continue listening between times.
I could not finish the book. It had the makings of an interesting book but Scott Brick totally ruined it. His narration ends every sentence as a dramatic statement. Every sentence is whispered. His ability to alter voices is non existence.
Choose anyone other than Scott Brick as the narrator.
Scott Brick must learn to read a book and let it flow. Believe it or not a statement such as "The Sun Was Shining" does not need a dramatic upturn at the end. It also does not require reading in a whispered voice. This guy is awful and I will never download another book read by Scott Brick.
Fire Scott Brick
Loved this book. Great plot twists. Great action. What a ride. I am now going to listen to every book this author has on Audible. I hope my heart can take it.
Too much contrived detail. No one thinks as detailed as this author pours out. It makes the actual narrative seem contrived. Simply too over verbalized.
