Yes, this is my first by this author. Action-packed from start to finish.
Plenty of role characters that had you attempting to figure out the twisting and turning.
Never listened to this narrator. Did a very nice job with the separation of each character with distinct dialogue.
This book had a little bit of everything. It had the criminal element, the personal heart ache, corruption, and most importantly touching on abuse of our children and our society.
The author hit on many faucets that we face in society today. She touched on the need for undercover law-enforcement, the need to protect our children, the difficulties of losing your unborn child, along with the difficulties that our medical profession face in treating fallen heroes, victims, and a special care that our children need when they are abused.
I'd recommend most Karin Slaughter books but probably not this audio version.
IDK who specific narrators are but this one was awful!
The story was a typical Will Trent story, I wish the stories didn't always tie directly into the main characters lives. Is the town they live in really so small that every single crime revolves around one of the main characters? I also wish they would quit retelling how each character met, the personal issues [dyslexia, diabetes, death of Sarah's husband], etc. Then, this narrator had my teeth grinding the entire time. I have tried & stopped listening to this book about 5 times now. Finally I just decided to grit my teeth & get through it. Her accents & voices for the characters is irritating, she sounds like she has been running a marathon before she started reading b/c she is always out of breath & the dictation of some of her words is also nerve grinding. Other than the narrator the story was alright.
I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!
Yes, definately, but to start back to the beginning.. Love the way the charactors develop, I am rooting for Will and Sara.
Just don't want to see Will's life or Sara's come to an end.
I do enjoy Will, Sara, and Faith.
Yes, if you love the Will Trent Series, you will come to enjoy the story, and the small parts connecting their lives.
It's a bit lenghy on the direction that this mystery-thriller takes us on, covering a lot of details about Lena and her husband Jarod. I never noticed it before, but I dislike one-word titles... I would prefer the detective thrillers to have a longer title. I do wish there might have been more inclusion of Faith.. maybe next book!
I simply can't believe the positive reviews on this book! I have purchased, and enjoyed, several Karin Slaughter books so adding this to my collection was a no-brainer and I was looking forward to the read. It very quickly became apparent, however, that this was not of Slaughter's usual caliber and I've found myself alternating between zoning out completely, or gritting my teeth at the unbearably tedious dialogue that characterizes this novel. In all the years I've been an Audible platinum subscriber, I've only ever felt compelled to write one other review, but in this case I couldn't hold my tongue! You know when you keep checking how much time is left in the book - and not in a good way - it's probably time to ditch it for something more enjoyable.
I thought that listening to this book was time well spent, as I enjoy Karin Slaughter's books. I love all the characters in the Will Trent Series and enjoy understanding the methods and motivations the characters use to solve a case.
However, I found this book a bit far fetched and also not in line with the rest of the Will Trent Series. Will going under cover as a biker struck me as odd, as he has always been described as looking like an undertaker or an accountant, and yet he seemed to fit in under his cover just fine. I also did not like that Faith wasn't really part of it all. I also really disliked that Amanda Wagner - kick ass extraordinaire, takes no BS from no one - was suddenly depicted as a bumbling, computer illiterate fool.
I wouldn't want to change anyone's story ever.
The only suggestion I could make as a regular Audio Book listener and Karin Slaughter fan is that all her books should be narrated by Michael Kramer. The first Karin Slaughter book I ever listened to was Triptych, narrated by Michael Kramer, and he absolutely blew me away with his performance. His voice really captured the gritty and horrifically violent tone of the book, and his portrayal of all the characters - male and female - was flawless. I also liked how he managed to perfectly capture the Georgian Southern accent.
I have found that all the other narrators of Karin Slaughter's books, in comparison to Michael Kramer, really lack the right tone for these books that have such dark violence in them.
Expressive but boring.
No, I do not think Unseen needs a follow up books. For reasons stated above, I wasn't totally sold on this book.
Very good but just how lucky can one guy be. Will Trent must have 9 lives.
Again, start Karin Slaughter's series from the beginning and you will want to hear them all. I actually like to travel now since I can listen to her books. I opt to travel alone so I will not be interrupted with mindless chatter and can enjoy these books.
I love the Will Trent Story. Hope you do too. I listened to all of them in a two week time frame. Waiting for the next one. Narrator is great over time.
I have always loved to read. As a child my mom actually grounded me from books if I was in trouble. Noone can do that now. Yay!
One of the complaints I have seen from some about this series is that the mysteries aren't deep and gritty enough. And, it is true that many series are darker, more twisted, scarier. But this series is deeper in its exploration of the characters' personal lives. You will grow to know and love Will, Sarah, Faith and Amanda as you read the eight novels of this series.
Unseen offers the best of both worlds as its plot line is one of the strongest in the series. So, if you love character driven stories … you will love this series. And if you love more analysis of the crime this book in the series will likely please.
Love the Will Trent stories, and this one didn't disappoint. I almost didn't buy it, though, because I'm not a fan of Ms. Early's narrations, after gritting my teeth through a few of them. I can live with the monotone arc of her sentences, but I find it impossible not to be distracted by her over-emphasis of characters' names and by pronouns, even when they aren't the main ideas of the sentence, and I found it to be a major distraction in almost every sentence that wasn't dialog. I don't know why, but the over-emphasis problem doesn't happen when she's reading dialog lines. I felt as though I was tolerating the narration to get to the story.
