This book started off being quite well observed, but it hit a point where it moves forward in time and after that it became a different book. It was repetitive and boring. Suspending belief only goes so far and then it hits the point where it loses tension and excitement as you stop caring about the characters. Very disappointing after it promises to explore an interesting idea but overdoes it on every front.
I've read all kinds of books which have been of varied quality, but have never come across a book where I have been shocked that it is able to be in print. This was truly awful and I can only assume that it got published in any form due to the TV series.
I've read this before, seen it many times, but listening to this was a pleasure. Characters are so good and the story is truly timeless. This was a good version with excellent narration (despite being a cheaper version).
Very easy to listen to. As long as you don't expect too much in terms of depth of plot and character. Main character is very likeable and i would listen to more by Parker. I enjoyed this.
Very easy to listen to, but I thought that it would have gone into more detail. I liked his perspective, which made me give this book four stars.
This was listenable, typical Stephen King. More like his early stuff, which I prefer. Would be nice to see him go back to this genre, perhaps even to this story which could be expanded on.
This was a great mystery, with very good characters. I had no idea who did it and was totally taken in by the story and lead down the garden path. Definitely a favourite Hercule Poirot story for me.
Aspects of this story were good, but overall it was very standard. I found that it was a bit insulting to mental illness - they just need a pat on the hand and to be told that they are pretty and they will be fine!
I have heard from others that Dekker can write better than this so I would try something else by him.
Story was very weak, characters were standard, but I felt that the author wrote the action scenes and survival aspects well. Very cool villains.
I liked all aspects of this book: characters, procedure, relationships. The main character is not really likeable, but I found that to be realistic and added to the story. Very well done and surprisingly enjoyable to listen to.
You can listen to this book even if you haven't seen the film (I hadn't ). The story really hooked me into wanting to see it and to find out more. The author (and narrator) is a little sanctimonious about the whole thing. I ended up thinking "good for him" - about the actor, director and financier of "The Room".
