Great characters and I love how Gregg writes women. I didn't want this book to end and I couldn;t put it down. It's fast paced and packed with emotion and nail-biting action! This is one of my favorites of Gregg.
I stayed up way too late reading this book, I just couldn't put it down from start to finish.
The main character of course but I love how Scott played the main characters love interest too. It's really hard to pick a favorite because all of the characters were awesome and so uniquely different.
I practically read this all in one sitting! Thanks you Gregg and Scott, you make my daily train commute painless.
I always enjoy Elvis however I am not enjoying the direction Thomas is headed. He is becoming way to preachy and harder and harder to relate to. I understand that he is going through a rough patch, but he doesn't act like a man in his early 20's.
Just make Thomas more human. I enjoyed all the characters in the first book, perhaps let his girlfriend visit more or let him get over her and find a new romantic interest.
Any Elvis scene.
Not this one, but I would see the first book for sure.
I enjoyed the first book in the series but the last two have been not so great. I'm waiting for the series to get better and it must. I liked Odd more when he was around normal people. he is just evolving into a character that is too preachy and too good at all times. I would like to see Odd live a little more. For a young character in his early 20's he acts like he is 90. I think Christ sinned more than Odd Thomas. I would still recommend the series though and I will still continue to read it and just hope it gets better.
Only if they read the first few.
He is always great and he is part of the reason I continue to listen. Thank you Dean Koontz for keeping David Aaron Baker as the continous voice, it definitely helps.
I enjoyed listening for the differences between the book and the movie. Doc was way more developed as a character in the book as well as Jack Torrance. The movie made him seem just cold and brewing yet the book let you into Jack's mind. The book really made me feel his decent into madness and all the way through I still held hope that his love for his family would help him overcome his demons. What a great book! I can't wait for "Doctor Sleep" later this month!
Jack was my favorite character. Even though I knew how it would end, I was still pulling for him. I also really enjoyed Doc, he really loved his daddy and I was dreading what was to come.
He had big shoes to fill with this book and Campbell Scott did an amazing job, he is a natural.
Madness Awaits with a Feverish Murky Embrace
I would change Maggie however this was published in 97' and Lisa Gardner is one of my favorite authors. Maggie made no sense to me. She is a mousy virgin yet a marriage counselor who had never been in a serious relationship. Really? A very naive and whiny character, Maggie just annoyed me. The characters were not very complex and I'm glad this book was written under Alicia Scott, Maggie is nothing like DD Warren and the other complex characters in her other series.
I would recommend this one to a teenager who has limited experiences, they would probably find Maggie more believable.
Never and I think Kate Rudd's narration added to the annoying qualities of Maggie and she reads men like they are cave men. errr.
As much as I complained throughout this review, I still managed to listen to the whole book in 24 hours so it couldn't have been that bad. As I mentioned I was entertained, the book was not very complex which gave me the ability to multi-task while listening. If it was a DD Warren book or any other Lisa Gardner book, I would have been more captivated and would have stopped the multi-tasking to listen closely.
Can't wait for Fear Nothing!
I have read most of the Greg Hurwitz books and this one was not only nail biting and intense but also moving. The characters in the story are lovable, well most of them anyhow. Redemption being a common theme, I just loved the characters and the relationships. How about a sequel? The main character could easily have a series where he continues to help the police detective. And narrator, Scott Brick never disappoints. He has narrated many of Greg's books and I have listened to all of them. More Scott Brick please, he could read the phone book and make it sound interesting.
Any Scott Brick narrated book but especially ones written by Greg Hurwitz, Harlan Coben and John Lutz.
He is the best! I actually look for Scott Brick narrated books when deciding what to listen to.
It made me cry in multiple areas as well as laugh. I went through the full gamete of emotions.
