I am addicted to listening to books on my MP3 player. I have even taken a chance on books by authors I have never heard of and have yet to be disappointed, until now. I thought I couldn't lose with a Jonathan Kellerman book but I did, I lost a download credit. It is confusing, over descriptive about things that don't matter and boring.
When the book first stared, I was a bit confused about all the fuss, but it quickly unfolded. So stick with it as it will quickly become apparent why this book is receiving such great reviews. Not quite Gone Girl but it will make you want to keep listening even while vacuuming!
I have been hemming and hawing about getting this books for months because of the mixed reviews. If you like a good mystery, get this book! It was a well told and well narrated book...end of story. I suppose everyone is entitled to their opinion, and this one is mine.
I love this series. Kind of Stephanie Plum-ish but at least heading in a direction. I read the reviews on this book and I was not surprised by the ending as there were small clues along the way but I was delighted that I was right - for a change. I would recommend reading this series in order but this book was entertaining enough to stand alone. So, if you like levity meets the grim-reaper, then this will be right up your alley!
I generally don't take the time to write reviews but am taking the time now. If you have enjoyed all of Liane Moriarty's other books, then you will enjoy this one too! It will definitely not be rated the "feel good" story of the year but very brilliantly crafted and inter-woven. I found the narrator very likable and believable and enjoyed listening to her accent. I was concerned a bit based on another review I had read as I cherish my credits and am very careful what I use them on, but am delighted to report that this book was very credit worthy!
What a great and unique story line. I did not want this book to end but when it did I thought it ended very well. I have listened to hundreds of books. This one is right up there with Gone Girl in the sense that it is so well written and well worth the credit. I have subsequently listened to all of this Author's audio books available and have thoroughly enjoyed them all!
I have listened to hundreds of books, this is by far my favorite. The story line is so different from most typical Thrillers and the Narrator is phenomenal. If you want to be enthralled download this book, you won't be sorry! In my book (no pun intended) It's right up there with Gone Girl.
I have thoroughly enjoyed this entire series, but this was my favorite listen.. As another reviewer eloquently put it, Abby is all grown up and the story line was more edge of your seat then most of the others in the series.. You don't have to read the entire series to enjoy this book, but the characters will make more sense if you do.
I was skeptical about even starting this series. I read some of the reviews on this particular book and saw that someone had posted a review saying that this book was Erotica. I have no idea what book they read but there was no "erotica" feel for me. It has a sex trafficing scenario so what else would you expect?. Looking forward to listening to the final book with a heavy heart.
