The reader was too overdramatic...awful. Storyline nice with lots of potential if the reader dis his job right
The story got off to a very slow start but started to improve about half way through. It also didn't help that the reader was very monotone. The story line was descent. Not one of my favorites but I didn't return it either.
It wasn't a bad read, and I would recommend it depending on what they were looking for. I did like the story and where it went, but at times the protagonist just seemed to be over doing it with his emotions to find Natalie. Also sometimes the book got a little outside plausibility but overall I did enjoy it, however I'm not sure if I would give it a second listen.
Yes I would.
This is the first time I have not give a 5 star review on a Harlan Coben novel. It was boring and slow. I will definitely be asking audible for my credit back on this one for sure.
I can't figure Harlan Coben out. His last book I tried was excellent. This book seemed like hours of fill with no logical story. Then there is Scott Brick. I think Mr. Brick was absent from class when they taught the difference between periods and exclamations. Read the book as written. When you see "she walked into the room.", do not read it as
"She, walked into, the room!" Every sentence does not require you indicating drama. I told myself to ignore any book with Scott Brick but I wanted to try the Coben book. I returned the book to Audible. It was a painful listen and a story lacking any realism.
Second only to Gone Girl at least. This guy was so selfish and unlikeable. The story isn't bad but I found myself rooting for the mobsters.
Great story - had to be to make me finish this one. I did not care for narration. I think he was too dramatic in his inflection. But my opinion only.
Everything works in This story: the love obscession gives good motivation and decorate the story; the character are well developed; the rhythm allows hooks the reader and allows him to understand the story as well . Scott Bricks acted very well too.
Loved it. Clear and easy to understand the story. suspense, suspense and more suspense. Wanted to keep listening had to force myself to stop.
It was a story I wanted to get through w/out stopping, but it was so hard to listen to the narrator... he's slow and his voice is way to mature for the character. It's hard to imagine a character that's in his 30's when the voice sounds like it's 60.....
Great story - wish I would've read it in lieu of listening just because the narrator is not good. He should only narrate books where the character is 'older' or it's a documentary or something. If the story itself wouldn't have been so good, I would have not finished it. I'm missing out on some of my favorite authors because I cannot listen to Scott Brick - if he's narrating, I'm not listening.
