Definitely. She is one of my favorite authors. This is the first novel of hers that disappointed me.
Kept me guessing!
Not really sure but I really enjoyed it and will buy more Lisa Gardner books.
Really did not care for the narrators attempt at Boston accents. The accent came and went from sentence to sentence and at times it was difficult to know who was supposed to be speaking. Would've enjoyed it more without the terrible accents!
Made me hold my breath several times and had me gripping the steering wheel extra tight while driving!
Great story if you can get past the narration!
Yes. There were several twists I did not expect.
She managed a New England accent without overpowering the story with it.
I really wanted to know what happened next, even after the book ended.
This could have been a great story. It starts well enough where a man, his wife and teenaged daughter are kidnapped from their Boston brownstone luxury apartment. However, once they are settled into their new "digs" the story really gets bogged down. We're subjected to the tedium of an hour-by-hour reflection of their family values. We also have to listen to Libby drone on and on about her feelings, and emotions, and betrayal, and addiction....yawn. It just didn't seem to end. It's one of those stories where I was starting to like the bad guys more than the family. The story picks up towards the end when many questions are finally answered and the action picks up, but it was too little and too late to help this clunker.
As far as the narration - Elisabeth Rodgers does OK, but sometimes she seemed to struggle with the male parts as well as overact (shriek) some of her lines.
Yes, I listened to it over a long solo road trip and it was great company!
Enjoyed how this story line took twist and turns so I never knew the ending...until the very end.
Very enjoyable listening.
Say something about yourself!
My first Lisa Gardner novel, i'm impressed. Definitely not see through, meaning -kept me intrigued throughout the entire story even when I figured out the who, but not the why. Elisabeth Rodgers gave great narration, very dynamic. The writing isn't enough to fall in love or hate with any of the characters, but the story has enough depth to make it a good read/listen.
Love Audible :)
Do you Really Know your Family?
Good Book from Begining to End!
I liked thecharacter of the kidnapper, but did not like the family, and did not understand them.
No, because it was kind of a scattered story. Not enough character development
The narrator was OK
No, I usually dont read books over again. but if I ever did, this would be the one!
The Best book I've read or listened to in my recent memory. Edge of your seat suspense, so to speak, suspense and real life family and human problems. The different twists and turns Ms. Gardner takes are so complex but make sense when you get the whole picture. they are ripples from events I wouldn't have thought of. This is not the same old, same old.
Excellent narrator. One of my very favorites also.
