First read the book when it came out and read it more then once - great summertime read. At the time I was a young mom of three and vowed that my little ones would never swim in the ocean, of course, that vow was broken many times over. Decided that it would be a great summertime Audible book and I was right - love it - it is like visiting with an old friend - bringing back good memories. Also Erik does a great job.
This is an excellent audible book a real thriller and not in a gross way. The reader is terrific and draws you into the story. I bought it because I had seen the movie with Will Smith but as always the book is so different then the movie - the book is better then the movie. Love it!
What great fun. Thank you Audible Books for the Christmas present - it was a joy!
Michael Crichton you were right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Unfortunately the truth has just been exposed in Climategate and you are not here to see it. God Bless you sir.
Just started listening to the book - I have not had any trouble with the narrator but I do take issue with Mr. King. Even though I do not consider this the proper forum I have to ask these questions. Why does he have such disdain towards Christians? Why do we tolerant this type of disdain? Isn't this bigotry? Mr. King your job is to entertain not to indoctrinate with your belief system. Unlike you sir, I have an open mind and I will finish your book because if I overlook the bigortry it is an interesting book and I am willing to see where this story is going.
I thought this was a beautiful book. It was a mystery - and it did in did dig deep into the characters past, present and maybe future. It was the old story good versus evil that live within us all. It was a story of forgiveness - of others an of oneself. The words were musical and the narrator's cadence was perfect. I could not stop listening to it. It gets an A from me - it has been a long time since I have heard such a good book.
This is a great book and a wonderful read. At first I did not think I was going to like the book but once I started to listen to the reader the more she drew me into the story. I haven't finished the book as of yet but like any good book I just can not get enough of it.
