I had this sitting in my Wish List for a long while. The cover looked "cheesy" to me, but the story and ratings interested me. One day I just downloaded it. It turned out to be a really good story. If you can get passed the first few chapters, the story really takes off from there. I was surprised and very glad I stuck with it.
I never read from this Author before, but because of reviews of this book, I made the purchase. I don't know what a "techno-thriller" is, and I'm really not into science fiction at all, but this was not that. It was really a good "thriller", which is what I was hoping for. I thought the narration was really good, and the story was easy to follow and a good amount of characters to be able to keep track of. I would recommend this one, and will look more into this Author for other books.
At first I didn't think I'd connect with this book. But I would say after the first 5 chapters, I was hooked! I enjoyed getting to know all the characters, the families, and as the story unfolded, how they all connected in some way or another, to come to form the plot of this well told story. I so enjoyed it, and the many unforeseen twists that kept unraveling. I recommend this book, and I'll probably listen to it again at some point.
I didn't realize this story would be based strongly on a reality show. That made me happy as I'm into those type of shows. But the story line was so stupid, so un-real, and the story line geared toward religions that became so boring. This had to be one of the dumbest plots of a story ever written - my opinion of course. I can't believe I finished this, but when I pay for something, I'm usually determined to do so. This was silly - stupid and hard to keep going. There was almost no thrill factor. I'd pass with this one!
I really enjoyed this story, as it had many twists, and many I did not see coming. I really liked the characters, and it was suspenseful, and kept me hanging throughout the story. It was very believable, and the story laid out easily enough to understand and follow. I think the narration was excellent as well.
I really enjoyed this story, and rarely put 5* for the story itself. Yet I believe this one is worth it in every way. There were no points in the story where it "dragged on", and this one was really hard to put away. I couldn't wait to get back to it.
Very interesting story, and how it twists along, and keeping you guessing. I enjoyed the characters, and how this story was smoothly laid out. I would highly recommend.
I really enjoyed this book. I've listened to several of Lisa Gardner's books, and this had a very different story line then most. She took this story full circle, and I really enjoyed the characters, the thought process the Writer had, and the way it ended.
I really enjoyed this book and realized that I had actually read it many years ago. I really liked all the main characters, the narration, and the concept of the story. It was laid out perfectly, and an easy 5* star for me.
I really enjoyed this book, as it was full of suspense, and so many things tied others together. I enjoyed all the main characters. I would recommend this book. The only thing that really annoyed me was there were dozens of characters that would come into play and gone. Some came back into the story, but with really no substance. I was annoyed because there were way to many characters to keep track of - seriously. But as a whole, this was an excellent suspense, with many other on-going stories in it.
Coming from y 9 year old daughter, she really enjoyed this book a lot! She hasn't stopped talking about the story, and the twists and turns it has. Please note I do my best to get her adventure books without killings and violence. So this was a keeper!
I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of action, suspense, and I enjoyed the characters. I would say its a good suspense for sure. Some the story content was occasionally a bit un-believable, so that is why I gave it a 4. But as a whole, I'd recommend this book and enjoyed the author's imagination and creativity.
