I would absolutely recommend this book. I rarely leave reviews, but I enjoyed this one so much that I have to. Very well written, great narration, and a really interesting twist. One of the best, if not the best book I have listened to thus far.
I like stories that have a twist, that are a little outside the box. I don't care for fantasy, but very much enjoy science fiction. This fit my style very well. Some parts felt slow, but, overall, it was an enjoyable experience.
I really enjoyed the part of the escape and the cliffs, trying to escape the creatures.
Good, simple fun. Not an overwhelmingly sophisticated read, but very entertaining. I definitely enjoyed it.
To me a story is an adventure, taking me some place and time I could not otherwise experience. You know, that place just over the horizon.
Absolutely. Peter Crouch created a world that is so vivid and unexpected that just one experience of it is not enough. It would be like never going back to Disneyland.
I was particularly smitten by the mysterious waitress. She was like the white rabbit for Alice in Wonderland. She took the hero ever deeper into a labyrinth that left your mind reeling.
As any good narrator should, Paul brought not only the characters to life, but he sucked you in to the time and place of the story. Brilliant performance.
It is really hard to find a good new thriller writer to follow. This story not only introduced me to Peter Crouch, but it made me an instant fan.
If you like obsessively descriptive authors then you would love this book. I hate it when writers are trying to add words for the sake of filling the book. It takes at least 4 hours for the book to take off. Now if it were a 25 hour book I would be ok with that, but it is an 8 and half hour book. The book is extremely dark and disparaging. I hated it! The only good thing about the listen was the narrator he did a great job!
The writing starts out as a great adventure and ends with a satisfying plot which makes the performance and story well worth it. Just don't give up when setting the stage becomes a little tedious. Once he moves into the plot points the story kept my attention, mystery and intrigue going right to the end.
I would recommend this book. It grabs you from the beginning.
Paul Michael Garcia is a great narrator. He makes the story come alive.
Yes, because I want to hear the next book, Wayward Pines.
The narration is a bit stiff and he has a slight stuffy accent that is tolerable but annoying.
Yes, but sadly life interrupts.
I do not know?
It was just a series of strange occurrences that did not suck me into the story. The character did not behave in a fashion that would be expected given his circumstances. The end was a total blind side that came from nowhere.
Performance was acceptable
It started out strong and then quickly became like a broken record. Repeated "wierdness" with no advancement in plot or character development.
This book was not for me, although from the other reviews it seems that many people enjoyed it.
