The Scott Brick was very monotone it was hard to stay awake while listening. I tried to get into this book and I could only make it to the third chapter
I really couldn't get into the story because of the reader. I am going to get the book from local library, then I'll tell you then.
Monotone and boring
The plot dragged out to frustration. If I heard the protagonist say "I felt my heart drop" one more time I thought I would pull my hair out. Scott Brick, who is usually such a delight, was just whiny here.
Beautiful Mystery by Louise Penny. Here is an author who knows how to weave a tale.
After listening to the audio version for 3 1/2 hours, I realized I didn't care about these characters and none of it was believable, so I deleted it from my ipod and listened to music instead.
I've read many Harlan Coben books and have thoroughly enjoyed them ALL. So I was extremely disappointed in his last offering. This is the first time his work has bored me. Based on his former work, I'll continue to purchase his books. But this book left me very unsatisfied.
The ending didn't feel right. The mystery is explained very quickly and it just felt off. I also couldn't' connect with the characters at the end.
The narrator reads very slowly and is over-dramatic. I wanted to love this book, but I couldn't.
I could not stop listening to this story. I carried my phone around with me to keep listening to see what would happen next. Scott Brick delivers a wonderful performance. The story is one twist after another. Why four stars? The ending. The epilogue. It was too easy. I really like this book and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys nail-biting suspense.
I did get annoyed with the main character for continuing in the quest even though he kept getting beat up and putting other's lives in danger. He was very selfish with his love and determination for Natalie. It got a bit annoying but, without it there would be no story from half-way through the book.
Not my favorite Harlan Coben story but I will continue to read/listen to his stuff because he is a great story teller.
Doubtfull if this is possible.
The story was ridiculously convoluted.
Anyone. Brick is agonizingly pretentious.
The combination of a weak story and pretentious narrator was poor enough that - try as I did - I didn't have the stomach to finish it.
a different narrator. and less over dramatic writing.
I have read his books before. Depends upon the choices.
wanted to put more let's get on with the story--
Really bad story and narration
The scenes were fine, but the descriptions were terrible
I did not like the stalker quality of the main character so I am not sure it had the ability to be a four or five star despite the horrible narrator.
Again---made the main character a little more manly and less needy.
The narrator was really awful. He had a petulant, haughty voice that really messed up the story. I don't hear Harlan Coben's work in the voice that this man used. He put emphasis in the wrong places and did not do women's voices well.
I will avoid anything narrated by Scott Brick ever, ever again.
