Scott Brick is excellent as usual. I gave him and the story 5 stars but the overall score only 4. Perhaps not logical but while I enjoyed my first foray into Harlan Coben's work and even recommended it to others, I have one minor quibble: The main character's heart breaks, turns to dust, shatters or whatever just a little too much.
That being said, it is still a fun ride that will keep you guessing to the very end. It is a unique thriller that won't disappoint.
It did not hold my interest. I am not sure if that is because it was audio. Normally I love Coben's books, especially the Myron Bolitar series. I came away from this book seriously disappointed in purchasing it. I am listening to another book right now and its very different. My attention does not wander from the narrators. Just not a thrilling story for me, and not thrilling narration. Not what I expected from Coben.
Diana Gabaldon's an Echo in the Bone, narrated by Davina Porter. LOVE her narration.
I really might have enjoyed this one more reading it. I am just not sure.
Odd question, but possibly. I thought it was performed well and played out like a movie in my head.
Yes. I went through the book very quickly because I didn't want to put it down. The plot thickened constantly and just as I thought I had it figured out, I learned quickly I didn't.
I have not.
An extreme reaction? Nope. It was just entertaining read.
The writing was weak - full of terrible dialogue and silly phrases. This sounds as if Cobin's teenage child wrote it for Daddy.
Write it as if real people were talking and get rid of the cliches.
Everything - his performance was quite good
No - it needs a re-write
I'm a Cobin fan. This book had Decent suspends but weak writing.
I would definitely listen to this story again. It was an amazing story. I was hooked from the very beginning.
The moment the main character finally accomplished what he had set out to do.
Mr. Brick's performance was simply amazing. His voice, the emotion the intensity...it was what helped the story come to life.
The moment when even the main character's best friend was connected to all of the drama.
People that find Harlequin Romances too intellectual.
No Harlan Coben can write a reasonable book but this certainly was not it.
Scott did a reasonable job but the material was soppy.
Removing Jake Fisher would have significantly improved the book.
Unexpected awesome twists
The main character, of course. Hugely likable and relatable
I liked how believable Scott was.
I loved the ending. No extreme reactions though
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.
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.
