Bla,bla, bla. This one was painful to listen to. Sorry, but she is just not for me.
This book was such a bore, I honestly cannot tell you what it was about. I did not hold my attention. I am an avid listener and this book did not live up to the hype. The only positive thing I can say is thankfully Audible will give me my credit back.
If you are looking for a book to put you to sleep, this one works great. I have hundreds of titles in my library and this is one of the worst books I've listened to. I could not finish the book; I simply do not care how it ends.
If you are a Grisham fan, you will not be disappointed with his latest release. I loved the return to Ford County and appearances of familiar characters. I don't care for his non-legal books, but he is my favorite legal thriller writer.
This book instantly captures your attention with such an original dramatic story. Although I didn't especially care for the narrator, I was blown away with the ending. I definitely didn't see it coming.
I've had this one on my list for some time. I finally listened and was not disappointed. I'm not sure I could ever read the book after listening. Ackland did an excellent job narrating. His voice has a very dark, creepy quality to it. I could clearly picture both the writer and reader of the letters.
I've listened to several other Hurwitz' books and was very happy, so I was excited to get started on this one. Unfortunately, it was a let down. The story line was interesting and original, but I kept figuring things out before it should have been apparent, leading me to be frustrated with the main character and lead detective. I like a challenge and this book was not one.
I am not a typical sci fi fan. I have ventured out of my mystery/thriller hole a few times. This was on one of the fan favorite lists, so I decided to give it a try. Even though I'm not a gamer, I still loved this book. I am an 80's baby, so I enjoyed all of the 80's references. If you're looking for something a little different, take a listen.
Sorry, I tried listening to 3 different stories and decided to stop punishing myself. Clearly, I did not listen to the same stories that some people did.
I guess I didn't listen to the same book that others did. I suffered through until the end. What a waste of my time. I can get my credit back, but not the hours I spent listening.
I'm always nervous when trying out a new author. Luckily, this one was a good one. Looking forward to more from Mitzner.
