Love this story! Some of his better work. I couldn't help being transported back to high school with this superb writing. Love the character spoon. Highly recommend this for any fan of this author.
I have read or listened to all of Coban's books and have enjoyed most of them. But this one is terrible. The Mickey Bolitar character is an unsympathetic sort, who I really do not want to know better. The story is so convoluted that it is just screwy. It reminds me of TV series that are fine for one season and in subsequent seasons the writers seem to invent stories that make little sense just to keep the series on the air. I really hope that Coben gives up this Micky series!
I enjoyed the story, as I enjoy all of Coben's work, but sometimes the drama gets a little silly. But in this case I think I am glad I listened to it rather than read it.
I have listened to many Harlan Coben books, and this is probably the best.
Podehl's voice characterizations are very well done, and seamless. I always know who is speaking, which is sometimes not always easy with male and female characters, especially since they are different ages.
Yes I will because it is a well written story what gives you a good time while listening to it.
I liked that this was a young man who seems mature far beyond his age. I can't wait for the next one.
I can't think of anything comparable.
I don't have time to read & he did a great job.
I did not read the book, however, I am enjoying the audible version.
There were one or two, but unable to recall the titles at this time.
I am enjoying his performance, easy to distinguish the characters without announcing each person with "he said" or "she said" in every sentence.
My schedule is very busy, and I'm unable to enjoy the extravagance of leisure listening.
The story line is good and worth purchasing.
I would try another book. In fact i have one of his paperbacks my nanny gave me that sounds better than both of the books in this series.
ive only read the first book in this series by him. So i havent not heard anything else or read anything else of his.
I think he did. There were a lot of young characters in the book that i think he tackled the attitudes just right on.
Not really lol
I LIKED it. I did not love it. Keep my interest though. I listen while i walk and jog. I never once found myself not connected to drifting into my own mind while listening. Which is so easy to do while running or walking. Esp bringing along you child. Just not as much excitement as i thought there would be. But i did like it.
I like how it picked up right where "Shelter " left off and yet, if had not listened to "Shelter first, you weren't really in the dark. The narrator is great!
The development of the characters
He was excellent! You knew exactly who was speaking.
Toward to end of the book with Mickey and Myron...don't want to give anything away, like some people do when they review...hint, hint!
To the person who gave this like 1 star...really? This is a book written for young adults, much like "The Hunger Games" or the "Twilight" series. Keep that in mind before you diss a book! I'm 59 and loved it!!
It is a nail biter. You think it is going to go one way and it goes the other.
I love Mickey. He knows what the right thing to do is and he does it.
I like the scenes between Mickey and his uncle. No matter what his uncle is there for him. It is a hard lesson for anybody.
It makes you laugh and cry and say OMG.
It is a great book for all ages.
Second's Away picks up right where Shelter leaves off. I think you'd get much more from the book if you read Shelter first. Generally I wouldn't read a Young Adult kind of genre but I had become so invested in the Myron Bolitar series (Mickey Bolitar's uncle) I couldn't miss this. It is a light read and sometimes I think the plot takes a back seat to the action but still it is very entertaining. What attracted me to the book is not Mickey but Uncle Myron, who plays only a minor role in the book and we see him through a new and less favorable point of few... seeing flaws that we never knew he had. All in all... Harlan Coben brought it again!!
