This was a good story. It had just enough factual information to make it believable and worth the listen.
Good story.I love a good storm but the idea that they can be manufactured is chilling.
Janus (the Roman god of doorways) was mispronounced throughout the story and it made it annoying each time she said it.
I listened to this book on a long drive and I wanted to hear how it ended.
Narrator should ask how to pronounce something if she is not sure...she pronounced Janus ya-noose---I wan't even sure what she was saying at first.
This is one of the best books I have listened to---along with other Dan Brown novels.
No, but it carried you along and you wanted to see what was going to happen next. Made me want to visit Italy again.
The moral questions and conversations this book inspired.
Great conversation sparker with family and friends. Good book discussion offering.
I did not like the stalker quality of the main character so I am not sure it had the ability to be a four or five star despite the horrible narrator.
Again---made the main character a little more manly and less needy.
The narrator was really awful. He had a petulant, haughty voice that really messed up the story. I don't hear Harlan Coben's work in the voice that this man used. He put emphasis in the wrong places and did not do women's voices well.
I will avoid anything narrated by Scott Brick ever, ever again.
The narrator of this book was either Irish or had the best Irish accent I have ever heard. The story, as read by her, was very compelling. The story itself was engaging and I found myself trying to carve out time to listen.
I felt the story was believable and interesting.
I enjoyed the manner in which the main character learned how to "play" a different person. She and her mentor's work together seemed very realistic. The author did not try to tie everything in at the end and I found the ending appropriate to the story.
I also liked the manner in which the deceased character seemed like a living character.
Everyone has a double.
I have one of those faces that make people tell me that I look just like their sister, ex-girlfriend, etc. One wonders about this kind of thing.
I did not like the narrator. He seemed to used a hushed uneven tone that ruined my enjoyment of the story. When he spoke at introduction and the end he was fine. But not during the narration of the story.
Different narrator or if the narrator would have used his normal tone of voice.
I am sorry, but I did not like his performance at all. He reminded me of Phil Dumfy when he was pretending to be Clive Bixby (Modern Family).
No. The book tied up the loose ends.
I would have enjoyed the story more with a different narrator. I am not really able to tell how much was not liking the story and how much was just the narration.
The story itself and the setting of the 80s was good and seemed to have been well thought out.
It was maybe a little heavy on character development. The author could have tied the two events together more succinctly.
Excellent job with narration. I loved listening to his portrayal of females voices and inflections. He did a wonderful job with the narration and I would put him up with Jim Dale.
Yes, because there were loose ends that seemed to have been dropped and I would have given it 5 stars if she had done that.
I enjoyed the story quite a bit. I just felt that the ends could have been at least addressed.
