I haven't listened to a book by Sandford in quite a while, but if I hadn't gotten this book for $7.95 I would have demanded my money back! Aside from the gratuitous foul language, the plot lacked cohesion and too many characters had similar names, making it difficult to keep up in an audiobook! I didn't even finish the book, something I've never done.
Maybe this is why I haven't chosen a Sanford book in so long!
I barely made it through this book. Generally I'm a fan of small details when they lend authenticity & add a visual element to the story. This book did neither.
Overall, the book was funny in the alternate reality sense of funny. In the beginning I thought Koontz might be reviving an earlier writing style we saw in Seize the Night and Fear Nothing. Not so. What a let down!
I didn't find it suspenseful or thrilling, just flat. Sadly I gave one of my favorite authors 2 stars.
As much as I enjoyed this book, I will never listen to another audiobook read by Scott Sowers. After a short time his narration was like nails on a chalkboard. It was all I could do to finish. Fortunately John Hart wrote a great book despite the horrid narration.
Without a doubt, one of Coben's best. With more twists & turns than the road to Hana, it's fast paced and keeps the listener thoroughly entertained. Highly recommend.
What a disappointment! The Women's Murder Club series is a favorite but The 6th Target is not of the same caliber. I prefer unabridged audiobooks because much of a book's flavor is edited out in abridged versions. This audiobook felt like it was abridged...flat and tasteless.
