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.
I may try another Coben book but not if Scott Brick is narrating;unless, Brick gets over the overdramatization and matches his tone to what is appropriate in the story!
I would not recommend this book. The story is overall is not bad and the author often nicely interjects a little humor to balance more serious scenes. The main character is a little too stupid at times. I value more background and deeper understanding of setting than this story delivers. Scott Brick detracts from the flow intended by the author as he overly dramatizes and creates incongruent sinister tone to every line.
No opinon on who. I would choose a narrator that understands and delivers the intended story. Scott Brick was capable of that in the early Clive Cussler books. My opinion is that he now is more interested in himself and his voice than he is in using his voice to relay the author's intention.
Coben has gotten lazy with his writing. I have been reading or listening to his stuff since the first Bolitar book. This was horrible, barely got throu it
Brick is an all-star
I hope this is a one time fall for Coben, guy has done some great stuff but this is a piece of ....
A Perfect Thriller
Great and unpredictable plot
Great voice, well narrated
It moved me and had me on the edge of my seat!
This book was worth the listen. It had a unique plot and I enjoyed it.
I wondered if the main character was nuts and imagined his summer love. The least interesting was the ending.
The main character.
No. It's a bit ordinary and predictable.
Yes, I usually enjoy his books more.
No. It ended where it ended.
An avid reader who cherishes my time with a good book!
I'm not sure if it was my intense dislike of the narrator or that this story just didn't compel me, but I could not wait until this one was over. The narrator's voice seemed to be to be completely mismatched to the character. The overly dramatic reading make the dialogue sound very contrite and corny through most of the book. I have read Coben before and I have been a fan but I was wholly disappointed with this novel which seemed drab and drawn out. I felt myself rolling my eyes quite a bit throughout. Without giving too much away, the real reason for absence of Natalie for the last six years, hardly seemed worth all the effort in the end.
