I really like how believable this story is. The main character is very real and easy to identify with. A missing child is everyone's worse nightmare! Coben makes you stop and consider how you would handle similar situations if life presented them.
Coben is well known for his plot twists and he certainly did not disappoint in 'No Second Chance.' I think I actually said 'you have got to be kidding!' out load on more than one occasion when reading this book.
I enjoy Scott Brick's voice. He is a consistent narrator who definitely adds to the story.
I found this book to be very well thought out and completely captivating! She convincingly handled the mental issues felt by the main characters. She makes one think of how the anguish of one generation can have consequences upon the next. Very good listen.
I liked the main character, Camile. I found myself hoping she would survive and thrive the events as they unfolded. I thought it was interesting that she manifested her pain in a secretive, yet outwardly way, while her half sister carried her pain more on the inside.
I think Ann Marie Lee did a good job of portraying Camile's mother. Her voice seemed to take on completely different qualities during the mother's dialogue.
It was definitely well performed. A couple of times I had to start a chapter over because the author travels to different times and places in the story. Suddenly a character would come in....like Bronte, and you'd think "wait! Isn't she dead???" I had to back track a bit to establish that one of the characters was having a flashback. Overall, the story flowed, but it had a moment or two that were fuzzy like this. The overall story was very good and well researched.
I have not listened to these narrators before. I will definitely seek them out in the future!
I liked the stubborness and ingenuity of the main character, Emily. She started with a very challenging set of circumstances and her survival instincts help her to skirt danger over and over again.
I have read the whole series several times in my life. This is just one of those books that you return to once in awhile. I was very hesitant about listening to this book versus reading it, but I took the plunge and there are no regrets!
Are you kidding? Tolkien is a master who had the imagination to create a whole world in his mind and share it with the rest of us.
I particularly like how he changes his voices for the different characters. This would be a very had book to read aloud, especially since there are so very many characters. He represents the individual characters well.
No, this is more of a book you listen to in your peaceful moments.
This would be best suited for a 20 something male who is into action adventure.
This is my first book by Weber and Pete. I think this story just lacked suspence. The killing was so very frequent that it was completely unbelievable. I think they just need to start over. Sorry.
I like how Junior sought out the prostitute Ruby. It was interesting to see him explore his feelings about his 'rules' of life.
The twist at the end of the case. We discovered elements of Jose's involvement that was not anticipated.
I would definitely take Patrick out to dinner. We have all played the role of a person who has been bullied.
