One of my favourite Grisham's. I had read this a few years ago & like the "ethical dilemma" posed - an interesting ponder. Narrated well & an easy listen.
Up there with Water for Elephants & The Time Travellers Wife. Compelling, I loved it and this is one of the few books I will listen to again.
This character is too self-absorbed for me and I found much of this tale tedious & boring. However, there were some great moments as well - some of the narrative really makes you think - YES!! I also laughed out loud many times. If you like self-help books, you'll love it. It would be hard to say this is not worth a listen, but I wish I had waited for the abridged version.
I nearly gave up! I am a Coben fan and love his style, however he defintely improved on this earlier work. An OK tale, but I got how much the characters loved each other after 10mins - I didn't need many hours of reiteration. So wait for the abridged version.
I am loving this author and this has to one of the best. Great pace, great story & an excellent end. If you're already a Harlan fan, you won't be disappointed, if you're looking for a new author, you've found him.
If you are a Kinsey fan, then you will love this one. True, the subplots are gone into with some detail & a bit more editing could have been done, but I enjoyed the way everything came together & concluded. I wasn't bothered that Kinsey's personal life was light on detail, as we know her so well & other books have focused on this, actually quite a lot of "gaps" are filled in about her past in this one. Narrator's voice didn't fit with how I have imagined Kinsey, but I got used to her.
If you have never read/listened to these before then you may well be disappointed with U as you do need to really know Kinsey as a character. Start with A and go from there, the abridged versions will be fine.
I read this book a few years ago and only because it was lent too me, it had never appealed each time I considered it off the shelf. I loved it, the characters are very compelling and although the story/plot can be complex (the time darting), you can only admire the clever way the author keeps it all together. The audio was just as good and the narration excellent. A really lovely listen.
