this book had some twists I didnt see coming which actually made me gasp audibly.
Not necessarily a good thing when you ride mass transit.....
it was performed exceptionally well. I believe the reader/performer has as much to do with your enjoyment of a book as the story.
the story was fluid and with the alternating chapters by character, I thought it moved along at a quick pace. I did however, at the end figure it out before the characters. The product of too many thrillers I guess. At any rate, thoroughly enjoyed it and look forward to the next one!!!
I am going to download her other books as well.
Really liked Tessa and Wyatt as a team. They sort of complimented each other's thinking process.
I always enjoy a performer who gives each character their own personality, inflection and can make you visualize them in your mind. In this case, once the characters were introduced, you were able to immediately identify each one even if the book did not.
as mentioned before, several times, I gasped or made some other audible comment while on the train. got some looks from other passengers but if a book causes you to laugh, cry or some other emotion, it is awesome in my book.
My problems with this version of the story:
1.) I like the narrators voice, low and sultry... but the voices she does for the "bad guys" are so hilarious its distracting. Its like if u are reading a story about monsters to your kids.
2.) The woman who the story is about, is so emotional and weak its ridicules. If u are a Danielle Steel fan, this book may be right up your alley. If u are a capable, competent, strong woman... egh. For me, her fragility was beyond too far.
Things I liked:
1.) The action
2.) The twist (even if it was a bit predictable)
All in all, I got through it with mild enjoyment.
Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.
Excellent mystery/thriller story from Lisa Gardner . . . my second from her . . . and just as good as the first . . . Things are never as they seem, are they? And I didn't figure this one out up until the end . . . I got very attached to Libby and Ashlyn . . . and also like Tessa Leoni, from the first Lisa Gardner book that I listened to (Love You More). Lots of grit, stamina, and relationships that aren't what they seem . . . I finished in two days . . . I HAD to!!!
Nice start to the story, Story maintains good pace, performance is very good. Overall a good book, but not a great book. I have read 'Catch me' from Lisa Gardner and Touch and Go. I would rate 'Catch me' higher than 'Touch and Go'.
Certainly not a waste of credit. If you like 'Catch me' then Go for it.
I liked the twist and turns of this book.
The plot kept me interested from the beginning.
Her reading was acceptable.
I really do recommend this book. I listened to it on the beach for several days and hated to put it down.
As an entreprenuer, it is hard for me to shut off my brain! It is also hard for me to sit still! I love audibles! I can exercise, work on "chores" , travel and be entertained! Always looking for a good story!
This abduction mystery is unpredicatible. And it was surprising to find a code of ethics in the the very characters you'd last expected it. Very entertaining and interesting.
The narration was superb. Made it easy to follow the characters, the storyline and to really get engrossed in the book. It was hard to stop listening to this book! I finished it in record time. Couldn't wait to see "who dun nit!".
Interesting character development. Really got involved with the individuals and their strengths and shortcomings.
This was my first experience with an Elisabeth Rodger's book.
If you like mysteries, you should enjoy this book and performance.
It was a good overall, I saw the twist coming early in the book but that didn't make me stop listening as I hoped there would be another twist, but there was not. Entertaining enough to listen to or read on the beach or while on the treadmill.
Yes, I like her style and pace. I would try another of her books.
This is my first Lisa Gardner novel, and it won't be my last. While the plot has some inconsistencies, and I guessed the final twist, the entire venture is well done. The story has a heart-pounding kidnapping as the opening event, with sympathetic protagonists, and good character development. I have to say that the performance is a bit dragged out, with too much "fake" Boston accents to be entirely enjoyable.
