One of the best. Funny, sad, depressing, poignant, heart- attacker good.
Nate had so many sides to his personality, that you were never sure what he was about to do.
The battle at the end was quickly over, but you waited for it throughout the book.
I laughed and cried. Just when you were almost too moved, something funny would usually happen.
I first thought that it was going to be a depressing, preachy story. Then it takes off and never stops--never.
Since I heard Gregg Hurwitz first novel, I've been hooked and I've listened to all of them. When I saw Survivor had been released, I bought it immediately. This is the best ever. I couldn't put it down, which is to say I listened straight through with only a few hours of sleep in the middle. It's an original, not like anything else I've read. Hurwitz combines elements I would never have believed could be in the same novel and does it brilliantly. I want so much to write about some of the things I felt as I listened and how many times I changed my mind about the ending but I don't want to give even a minute of this away. You deserve to take this adventure on your own. I recommend it without reservation. Yes there are some blood and guts, so if that bothers you and you can't force yourself to fast forward through those when they occur, then I guess it's not for you, but there's so very much more to it than that. I hope Hurwitz is well into his next book. I'm already in line to buy it.
But I can't end this without mentioning Scott Brick. I listen to 3-4 books every week and he is one of my absolute favorites. I think he is the perfect match for this book and give him 6 stars as well.
Interesting story line, good pace, I'm a fan of narrator, Brick always a great preformance. I thought the ending was a little predictable but well worth the listen.
It was a good story but the narration was typical Brick melodrama. He makes every character sound like he or she suffers from a very deep depression. Really, it's my fault. I completely missed the fact that he was the narrator. If I had seen that, I would not have bought the book.
The ending, because I didn't have to listen to Scott Brick anymore.
Find someone who understands the genre and have them narrate the book. Leave Mr. Brick to the Romance novels.
I'd watch it on cable.
Like action, adventures, war stories, militay happenings, historical readings-fiction, & mysteries. Unabridged only! Reader IMPORT!
Could not finish the story!! It is/was sooooo depressing to me that I had to stop listening...!
Perhaps it might have improved had I stayed with it longer. But I didn't have the "guts" --- to do so!!!!
Gregg Hurwitz is way too detailed for me
I like Scott Brick
Leave out about half of the details
No thoughts on that.
I have read several of Gregg Hurwitz's books. This is the first one I have not liked.
I found it depressing from start to finish..
Entertaining and enjoyable
The end !
Scott Brick changes his tones, shows excitement and keeps me on the edge of my seat.
If you could deciede when you die...
yes, it was a new and interesting story iine
The moment when he finds himself inside a dangerous situation which he can help people get out of.
I liked the emphasis on how important his family was and that he could repair the relationships which were broken.
