Very disappointed. Why choose a man to read this story? Why choose a man with no emotion to read this story? Never got "into" the characters -- didn't really care what happened to them.
I am BIG Harlan Coben fan but I will avoid Angela Dawe. . . every sentence sounds like a question or a demand. . . . enjoyable.
better story, fewer twists and turns (too many coincidences makes it unbelievable).
Was this really a Patterson story -- had to remind myself that this isn't Brad Metzler.
Collins handled the principle character (Ben Casper) very well. He does a good job with the Russian characters. Sometimes in conversations, it becomes difficult to follow who is saying what.
This character (Ben) could easily lead to a series -- stories need to be stronger, less convoluted.
more Lazarus. . . . less Decker.
One can count the number of words "spoken" by Rina Lazarus . . . too much cop stuff, not enough about the family.
I have listened to every one of Faye Kellerman's Lazarus-Decker books. . . up until now I have enjoyed them. Rina is sappy; Gabriel is unbelievable; Marge Dunne has become more of a southern belle as she gets older.
I would (and have) recommend this book (both audible and print) to many friends. I listen to it annually -- usually at the beginning of summer -- and fall in love with it all over again.
Having the author read to story is wonderful!
It feels like sitting with a friend and listening to her tell you a story about her life.
My favorite character is Lusa!
Gretchen, why didn't you read this yourself? This is YOUR story and should be in your voice. Kathe Mazur is a good narrator, but not for this story. This was distracting.
As a Happiness Project devotee, I found this book somewhat repetitive . . . perhaps this should be Gretchen's last happiness project.
As a dog owner I was prepared to like this book. . . . I more than liked it. Couldn't stop listening! Real characters, believable story, touched my heart.
couldn't finish it. didn't care about these characters. I may give it another try in the future.
the author created characters about whom the reader can relate -- I cared about these people! beautiful, believable story -- well written.
this timely story -- kids and elders with addictions -- makes one think about their own families. Psychology of hoarding makes one think about what is important -- and what are we teaching our children.
