I'm not a big Harlan Coben fan and I don't often write reviews, but I LOVED this book! Extremely suspenseful with lots of twists and twists on twists. Book had me from page one.
Oh the pain
Conversations where secrets are revealed drag on and on, the hero fails to call the police (or run away) when he ought to, and there's a substantial amount of soap-opera level hand-wringing over lost romance. But the reader does an absolutely amazing job given the material. There were a few unpredictable plot twists, and I did listen until the end. A decent piece of escapism, as long as you can make it through the long speeches of love lamentations, delivered with an admirable level of commitment by Scott Brick.
This was a good story, kept me guessing who was good and who was bad.
The ending is so cliche
Some hearts stop
This was our first experience of Harlan Coben. His descriptive power is innovative and colorful and the story is engaging from the start.
Unfortunately the narrator, Scott Brick, spoiled the book for me with a breathy, self-absorbed and pretentious delivery. Actually the narration was curiously uneven. At times his characterizations were spot on but then even lines written with a wry touch of humor got a heavy handed treatment of tedious overacting.
Maybe Brick was having an off book because I see that he has narrated hundreds of them.
Couldn't wait to download latest Harlan Coben... Now wished I hadn't acted so quickly. Boring, dragging and nearly ridiculous.
Performance was too dramatic for a far-fetched storyline.
It ranks up at the top. I love mysteries and read/listen to many.
Funeral of the gangster.
One thing that is important about character construction is creating a character that you can relate with, and that is not quite the case with Pr. Fisher, the idea of man who cannot get over a girl for six years kept nagging me the whole story. He can sometimes become way too much melancholic to my taste, ans sometimes I could understand some decisons that made some situations much worst.
I must say that the main plot is interesting enough if not somewhat cliche in some parts.
The narrative is quite good and the author has a good flow. He can make the action scenes quite plausible for the situations and some quite remarkable characters, specially the supporting ones, but sometimes he could invest more in personality.
The narrator in competent and knows his business, he could just give little bit mote life to some characters.
I have been a Harlan Coben fan for many years but this book doesn't measure up. The story is a stretch and the tone "soapy".
He did but there were too many characters with only minor roles so at times I was confused.
The performance was over acted, the plot wasn't bad but it was over written. Many parts were repeated unnecessarily.
Yes, I really couldn't put it down and it kept me guessing and coming back for more.
yes, there were constant twists and turns, things to leave you hanging and questioning
His preformance, truly brought some realism to the events
When his best friend didn't shoot him despite his oath.
This book is really worth using a credit on or buying. In my oppinion.
