From the first 5 minutes of listening you knew this was going to be a good book. The story took you to the next level with the club members. You saw new depth with each as they try to save their friend. I listened to the entire book in one 11 hour setting. This is truly worth a second or third playing.
This is at the top of my recommendation list of audiobooks to have a friend listen to.
When Tessa realized where her daughter had to be.
some parts made me cry.
I take chances listening to new authors only when read my favorite narrator. This story grabbed your ear phones and would not let you take them off until the last words were uttered. Lippman is now on my list of authors I listen to. I like stories about areas I am familiar with and Baltimore was a great place for this story to take place in. After hearing the book I actually road through several of the areas mentioned in the book. Maryland is truly a beautiful state and I enjoyed hearing about it in this fantastic book.
20 years ago I was introduced to Ross McDonald and have read every book he wrote. It is a great pleasure to listen to his fine work. The reader does a fantastic job getting all of the emotions through to you. This book is one you can't stop listing to until it over.
I have either read or listened to everything written by the author -- although the story was worth listening to I don't think it was up to the standards of his other work.
This was a fast pace well written book. I listened without a break. Barbara Rosenblat keep you on edge the entire time.
Well worth the time to listen.
