This felt a little overly dramatic. The narrator was great, but it felt a little too complicated for a love story.
You can't go wrong with Harlan Coben, always a good and gripping story. I don't think this was his best book - supporting characters are better in other works - but the plot twists and the sense of humour remain brilliant.
I did not like Scott Brick's narration. He was too heavy on the cynical side of the main character, who seemed always too blasé, and failed to make a clear distiction among characters' voices. In certain dialogues, I could not know who was speaking.
Overall, an entertaining audiobook.
Couldn't stop listening!!
Jake-learns to break the rules and take chances, which pay off in the end
No, I haven't but I would like to in the future.
The ending was pleasing.
Harlan Coben hooks you right from the start with the twist and turns of Natalie and her life. What a great Author. I can't say enough good things about this book, except you will not be able to put it down.
I loved this book, but Scott Brick almost ruined it for me. I didn't like his version of story telling at all. He made the character seem week and not very appealing. If it wouldn't have been for already reading this book and knowing how great it was, he would have lost me at Hello.
To live, to love, to leave a legacy.
Very good suspense throughout.
The title of the book is wrong and never seemed to fit in my mind. Maybe Finding Natalie would have been better. As for the story the main character Jake Fischer seemed a bit obsessive.
**Spoiler** His escape from Fresh Start.
Book was only OK. I gave it four stars because I really liked Scott Brick as a narrator.
Listening to Scott Brick makes any book enjoyable, but I also loved the character of Jake. I love Mr. Coben's descriptions of locations, which are full without being annoying. It took me a long long time to figure a couple things out. I think this was a great mystery, romance.
Of course it would be Jake. He was likeable. He was honorable. He was maybe not the brightest when the book started, but his character grew in proportion to the crap he was going thru, I think. He made me smile.
Really? Everything. I'd listen to Scott Brick read me the alphabet.
The last 10 minutes.
I think I'll go look for another Harlan Coben book to download. I believe I have a new favorite author.
I have never been disapointed with Harlan Coben's book's. I have a few of them and plan on getting the rest of them. I especially liked this one, I couldn't put it down, and the ending could not have been any better...be sure to get it.
If I were asked to describe this novel, I would have to say this is about an OCD Poly Sci professor who gives into his whiney nature who also is skilled in fighting because he is an ex-bouncer. Jake has a "thing" for Natalie. Jake's feelings for Natalie are akin to self-flagellation. Jake, looking for her, gets into a pickle. I picture Jake looking into the distance, being confounded at each turn. After seven hours, I give up. I don't want to know the end. I don't like Jake or Natalie. He is a total wuss and the only person I like is Jakes Secretary Mrs whateverhername is.
Nurse, mom, loved to read....but now I love to listen.
Awesome book and narration. The story is unique with much mystery and suspense. This story is also a love story that anyone who listens would love to experience in life. Scott Brick is a favorite of mine so listening made it that much more heavenly! I highly recommend.
Seems as though the author had found a good plot, made a plan, sat down and started writing anything that came into his head to come up with the appropriate number of pages. When I get lectures on "don't text and drive" and descriptions of what characters are ordering for breakfast or how to make coffee using K-cups, I know I made a bad choice!
Get his editor to trim down the mess!
