My first by this author and not my last . Excellent suspense and not easy to figure out the "bad guy". Highly recommended.
i am an avid reader have been since i was young.Since discovering Audible i consider myself an avid listener now. I tend to skim read and well you can't skim listen so i get much more from a book
I haven't read the print version but i love audio readings as much or more than the print version
Any of her books she is one of a kind in these type of books
I really thought i was not going to like this book but it was so well written and performed that it pulled me in till i had trouble turning it off. Stayed up later several times because i had to see what happened next. Love the way she writes.
Definitely. She is one of my favorite authors. This is the first novel of hers that disappointed me.
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.
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
