Well done story, it was better than the first and for the lovers of zombie sci fi, it holds up will for zombie genre. It has good action, and follows smoothly.
I get the feeling that it was Jay that wrote this book with Kirkman's assistance.. it follows the walking dead storyline, but was missing something, a little drawn out to make the book longer. Maybe I am too much a fan, but R Kirkman refers to the undead as walkers and biters, while Bonansinga uses the term zombies, and too often uses the word,"supine".
Probably where Lily starts to put together things aren't safe in Woodbury, and she is realizing that her friends are disapearing. All I am going to say. read the book.
Yes. It shows a parallel storyline to Rick and the others at the Prison who are surviving following to the zombie virus. The characters are rich in thier developement, only disapointed to see many die off by end.
By about the third time they are caught unaware of walkers, and taken by surprise, I am wondering , if these are survivors, then how did they manage to outwit, and survive? I mean, how many were first taken, bitten, and caught in the armagedon, these survivors would definately be sharper, keener and skills honed to pre-awareness of walkers movement towards them.. noise, smell, etc.
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 was impressed with M Greaney's deep passion for well researched, action packed story. He doesn't over-define, but let's the reader feel like your looking over the gray man's shoulder through the story. I was impressed with his ability to escape being killed. I liked the least of his friend Ruth that was written out.
Yes, from Court's first assignment, to chapter after chapter of being chased.
Yes, I would like to see him get picked up by the Israeli's special intelligence agency.
Much more modern day action, as opposed to Jason Bourne series.
I was thoroughly disappointed that Ms. Collins let me down. She originally wrote about a resourceful, strong willed, brave young girl who was meant to survive in the district and become a leader of many districts. She made HG a page turner, or I hungered to keep listening to my audiobook! CF was good, but I expected more for the last book, instead it became a drag to finish. Katniss kept her family alive by hunting, with survival skills and raw energy. HG, Katniss was a selfless girl who saved her sisters' life by sacrificing herself. Instead by CF she starts to loose that control, to the third, MJ , what do we get? *(spoiler) A girl who's can't make up her mind who she loves, is just a pawn or puppet used by others, and becomes this spineless, whiney girl, who's drugged on morphfling, much way that Haymitch strayed in character as a drunk though out the trilogy. Just as the action gets exciting, she gets knocked out, and ends the buildup, the rebels won, we read or are told the Capitol fell, and no Katniss in it.. What a let-down. Prim is barely in the story, but yet we are supposed to feel remorse when she dies. Prim dying meant nothing, I don't know why Ms. Collins portrayed Katniss this way. It turned me off, and was left wishing the story would move on, and tired of people around her dying. . By the time the back third of the story was upon me, I just wanted it to end. I felt disattached. I felt no joy that the Capitol fell, or the rebels won.
She didn't choose Peeta, she ended up with him because he was the only one who stayed.
Just to have kids because Peeta wanted them, and raised them on the ashes of her people in the bombed district. I felt that Ms. Collins wrote this book just as if pushed to finish it for a big movie deal.
I need to read reviews.
If I ever write a book or trilogy, then I am going to make sure I have a prepared answers for why I chose to write it, or follow the direction of that book or series. I am not impressed with the let down of the trilogy.
I enjoy Kathleen Early's narration.
The final chapters were - wow... and opened the door.. the book does get mired down, spanning 40 yrs, between present day Will, and the first case that paird up Amanda and Evelyn Mitchell. I miss the lack of our favorites, Will, and Faith.. but it was interesting to see more of Amanda and Evelyn. The way women were treated on the force 40 yrs ago has me wondering, but the story was good and tied together at the end.
Her interpretation, mood of the main characters, like Will, Amanda, Angie, and Sara.
No... but it was very interesting to listen to on my commutes... sometimes I had to back up as I found myself thinking about something, and missed the next subject of data as it moves very fast.
I missed the lack , or want for more of the main characters I grew to love so much in this series.. meanwhile, I found the final chapters open the door to so much, in understanding Will's past, and his upbringing, and the relationship with his boss, Amanda. I have really gotten hooked on this series.. K Slaughters books have yet to disapoint me. Well worth the price.
The later books in the series get better. There is more details thrown in about the characters lives, the material is black as some say, but the books are pageturners, or the audible recordings make you want to continue to listen.
Just the repore amongst the characters, Will Trent is a very likable, yet different kind of detective.
Yes... but as recommended to me; start out reading or listening to "Undone" and "Broken" first!
I am loving the Grant County/ Will Trent series!
I think that it was so so... It could have been better.. the story dragged on in the final third.
It had me at my most in the beginning- and taking the artifacts to the museum.
It needed more counter plot - the final third of the book drudged on.. the only spark was the hint that one of the biochemist was synthetizing a new plant form.. and that could spark more monsters.
Sorry- nobody outstanding.. Dr. Margo Green? maybe.
Uh- daah... how old is this website? Who is running this ? Movie was made back in 1997!
IMDB gave it5.6 stars out of 10.. starring Penelepe A Miller and Tom Sizemore..
This is 2014!!! tsk tsk.
The characters have engaging personalities in which you want to read on, not just about the case, but to find out what happens next in their lives. Its true, written by others.. read these in order... and these books are ones you can't put down.. or want to keep listening to.. you get hooked and want to devour what happens next. Very well written.. very well narrated.. I like Shannon Cochran's voices of characters , and their personalities.
Dr. Sara Linton and Will Trent attraction to each other. I also enjoy how the author shows both their points of view in the story solving the case, along with Faith Mitchell.
S Cochran has a passionate way of becoming the characters, and you follow along in the story, whereas , her voice never gets on your nerve. She does an excellent job.
This book made me smile by the touching way that Sara went after Will. She finally caught on, his sad life, his miserable marriage... Meanwhile, the other characters like Faith, and Amanda were rooting for Will.. they knew what was going on.. before he even did.
Not only a good book but a great series. I have recommended them to my brother, and to my friends who like cop/suspense books. I was hooked after reading Unseen, and Broken. They are hard to put down and are to be enjoyed. I am so happy I found them. I encourage people who like detective novels, to join in and enjoy.
A good series.. good characters, strong audio narration and good tie in ending.
I had purchased Broken, and had read reviewers who had suggested reading Undone first as a tie in. I am very happy I did. Very good.
Finding out who the bad guy was near the end.. a bonus, where you sometimes guess it and have to wade thru chapters before the main characters find out. Enjoyed the multi-dimension personalities of the characters who keep you reading or listening.
Very graphic in describing the disgusting treatment of the women abducted. If your faint of heart, or bothered by this, then don't read it.
I love the audio- can't compare to print. But will say it just draws you in, and you cant stop. Long too.. so good value for the money.. you get your money's worth!!!
This was sci-fi, time travel, but A Prayer for Owen Meany, by John Irving, where the story draws you in.. and you can't stop listening, or reading, where you can't wait to find out what happens next. The story is incredible with rich discriptions of the past, and identify with the charactors actions and reactions.
The dialect, inflection, the action, the love between the two characters.. the feeling-when they dance... wow.
George's (Jake) love for Sadie, and the connection between the two. The memories of the past- wow- of being a little one, and remembering the Woolworths, the parking meters, the drive inns, the little changes we take for granted today.. it was fun reliving the past when I could relate, to the political environment that I lived thru, my parents, the impact of Kennedy's death, and the reactions by my own parents.. I lived thru it.. and later much more with Bobby Kennedy. Sure makes you think.. what if?
Just Read It! Its not a scare your pants off Stephen King... its the edge of sci-fi with time travel.. but along for the ride.. what a journey.. wow.
Well done story arc, good characters. However, there are a lot of frustrating errors.. No proofreaders available? Even listening to the audio, there are grammatical mistakes. Was the author saving money? It shows.
The set up for the main character owning a dog was a waste. Less buildup, and add more chapters to Lee doing his mission.
Capt. Lee and Jack.
Why waste my time answering this? (for a book review) It's being filmed in Wimingotn, N.C.We are seeing proof of how huge the internet is, with a book going from digital media, and then to movie rights to be on the big screen.
It follows the standard zombie apocalypse genre. I have read or listened to a dozen books. I give the narrator a high rating, he's very good to listen to. The story is very sound and well done descriptively by the author. I am disappointed that the book was short in length (8 hrs), and would have liked it doubled for the price.I don't want to own a trilogy of books for $50 that could end up as a $3.95 bargain day buy in a year.
