He could have written a more plausible story and not tried to build suspense where there wasn't any obvious reason to the reader.
Probably not. Too much of a drone/monotone as he read this novel.
Disappointment. Generally, Harlan Coben writes a better story.
I will try to return this book. I've been disappointed in several recent purchases of books by some of my favorite authors. It seems as if they are churning out books without giving enough thought to the plot development. I tried to listen to this book while on a long driving trip and finally just turned it off and listened to music.
No did not like the main character. He was to sappy. Ok you love the girl and she left. Six years of whinning about it. Get over it already
I normally like him but not this book. Maybe it was the story. Boring to dramatic.
Yes I'm returning this book and getting my credit back.
Another reliably entertaining audiobook from Harlan Coben. A stand alone mystery this time. I finished it quickly because I listened to it everywhere, including grocery shopping, driving, and gardening. The narrator, Scott Brick, was also pretty good, if a little overwrought at times but he enhanced my interest.
This is my granddaughter's picture! She is my love.
There is a hint at the beginning of the book that tells you what is going to happen, but I don't catch these things very often. There are so many things that Jake has to do in order to get his love back. She is not even a big part of the story. She is not a fully developed character. The twists were not predictable to me and I enjoyed each one. Jake is a good guy, caught up in a really deep secret and no one knows the answer.
Far too much narative. The story could have been much tighter.
Listening to Scott Brick was exceedingly painful. His narration was dramatic to the point that it sounded as though he were trying out for a role in a Shakesperian play.
Too many scenes to list.
The narrative of the characters in this book really annoyed me. I like a sensitive man, but honestly, what a sap! Some have complained about the narrator, but I think it was what he had to work with that made his performance less than stellar.
I did finish the book, just really wanted to see how it was going to all come together. However, I would not necessarily encourage others to spend their time listening.
Normally I like the Harlan Coben/Scott Brick combo, but this book was slow and boring - sorry Harlan, I cant finish it, I give up now with one hour or so to go...
Scott Brick is awesome as usual.
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.
