Never, ever, ever. He practically whispered the entire book and failed to bring any suspense to what should have been a thrilling novel.
I liked this book. My husband and I listened to it in the car while on vacation. I like a book with some twists and turns without being overly complicated. This was a good balance. Narration was good, story was good, ending WAS GOOD!!
Harlan Coben-Only if there were no other books to choose from and I was going on a road trip and really really needed a book to listen to Scott Brick-I spent the credit because I do like his narrations and thought that I might enjoy the book.
I don't think so
It has just enough suspense to keep you wondering where the story might be going....maybe next chapter will get to the point and the drek will end.....I held on to end because my curiosity got the better of me...all the while rolling my eyes at the endless wandering of the story
Love addiction gone WAY BAD! Complex thriller, brilliant writing and outstanding narration.
Anxious for the revelation of the truth.

Jake Fisher's fight and flight scenes.
Jake Fisher because he was tough and smart. But a bit too obsessed with Natalie.
Have a different reader. I find Scott Brick too slow and dramatic. I had to listen to the book at 1.25 or 1.5 speed most of the time.
The fight scenes were very exciting.
It seemed like the author had to add a lot of unnecessary detail to make the story book length.
Someone that has a vivid imagination and is not concerned with details.

The reader was simply annoying. If the reader had been more realistic like George Guidall or Richard Feronne may the story line would have been more believable.
The main character, Professor Jake whats his name. Really? a professor who works in academia daily can beat up hardened mob muscle. A 30+ professor who's only altercations were his experiences as a bouncer in college.
The ending was good enough. Even parts of the story line and getting to the truth was sort of interesting. But it would have been better if the professor was into boxing or some sort of martial arts which made it slightly believable that he would not fear dangerous men with guns.
I may avoid the narrator entirely after this book. If I cared enough to read it, or hear another version, I might find that the book was mildly entertaining. It certainly had a great many twists and turns, mostly improbable and many foreseeable, but the narrator got so annoying that it became difficult to actually keep up with the plot.
I have listened to several books narrated by Brick in the past, and, though he has never been my first choice of narrators, he was not an impediment. This time, however, he was so overly dramatic that it was very distracting. I found myself laughing at his dramatic narration and not paying attention to the book itself.
Not by this author. This book was like a bad movie that keeps getting more implausible and melodramatic. I have no desire to listen to another book by Coben.
Something not written by Coben.
The book was my larger issue, but his performance only added to the overly dramatic nature of this book.
Disappointment. The subject of the book was right in my wheelhouse. However, I hated everything about it. I kept listening just to see how much more ridiculous it could possibly get. It didn't disappoint in that regard! Every time I didn't think it could be more dumb, Coben would take the story in an even more implausible direction.
This book is just bad. Download something else. Like anything else.
The main character of this book is way too dumb to be a college professor - come on, give me a break!! Hated this book and stopped listening several times. Finally quit for good before it was over. Kept thinking it would get better and it never did - UGH!! Bitter disappointment from Harlan Coben - read others of his I really liked.
Not really - perhaps the mystery was catching - I would like to know what happened to Natalie! But no way am I subjecting myself to the continuing stupidity of the main character!
Doesn't merit being in your inventory - I'm shocked it was published!
