This book is nothing to write home about. For one thing the murder plot gets repetitive & boring real fast & any avid reader, movie buff or TV guru could quickly figure out why the murders are happening & what the main plot is although nothing comes to light until the end. So to begin with so there is no challenge there. The main female character seems to have a lot of extraordinary talents but can’t seem to handle them when under real pressure. She is in constant self analysis & blame of herself & those around her to a point of becoming nauseating & repetitious. Even after nearly getting killed several times in this book she still plunders on in a cloud of resistance, confusion & inability to stop. (?) She waffles from always believing she is right, getting testy, to having a huge chip on her shoulder. The story line becomes too long & drawn out with the story based on mainly conversational which to me lacks a balanced with what could have been some interesting background narrative. And the relationship between the main female character & the FBI sounds just way too loose, unorganized & unbelievable.
The narrator was pretty good although I could still hear the female tone in the numerous male voices. So in a case where there is a lot of conversation I would prefer a male & female narrator.
She was overworked.
I have more than once. I lept loosing my place.
No clue so far...this must be a first
can't wait til the second book comes out
Full, modern, interesting
I liked them all
She nailed the part as narrator from beginning to end
The Charity Ball
How Sophie was always one step ahead of everyone.
I loved the language & words never heard in todays society. The men actually had something to say.
She brought the character alive in a very neat way.
Oh yea, I laughed everytime Sophie got the upper hand which was always.
Just about everything!
Absolutely, especially when you realize even the smallest comment from Reacher has a big meaning.
He is a wonderful narrator who makes Reacher the character he is.
Watch your back, then watch it again.
Nope, except read the book or listin to it.
How anger, emoitional & mental pain can be healed & love can reenter ones life.
Coudn't choose just one
It was a good thriller all the way through, & the bad guy gets it in the end
All the parts that described how two very unhappy people could stay the course to happiness.
Very, very high in writing style, believability & intrigue.
I can't answer that it would give the ending away, I will say this - Wow, this book had everything a great mystery thriller book called for. It was like a cross between Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde & Sherlock Holmes. I liked everything about this book, especially how cleverly the plot kept unravelling & unravelling. From a psychological viewpoint it was mind boggling & I kept finding myself slipping into the place of the main character “Jackie.” Although I do not think I would have been as courageous & determined as she was. What is so sad is there are evil people roaming the earth like that.
I only use aufible books but she was great.
Yepper, but I had to give my mind a break every once in a while as it was overwhelming.
This was the first book by this author i have heard, but i think i will be coming back for more.
The story line was very good. It was a fresh approach to what could be called the evil in this world with a very suprising ending
I can't recall, but I did like this one a lot. It also proves how perserverance & dedication plays an important part in life.
Nice Narration too.
Weirdos out there
The suspense & characters were so good & well balanced in a book so suspenseful it was fascinating. I liked the ending too.
Everything he is the best
Hide under my bed every once in a while
It kept me wanting to keep reading it.
Too hard to choose
He is one of my favorite narrators
Well, first of all if the story emphasis had not been on bad family realionships, alcholism. poverty, obesity, self pity, teen-age struggles. laziness, illness, self-centeredness, dirty houses, depression, people making poor choices all over the place, insecurities everywhere, broken marriages, poor parenting, who knows it may have flown as a decent book. But wait, maybe if the ending had come together in a way that was pleasing maybe, but the end only imploded in on itself. So no, nothing I can think of could have raised the rating on this book
They were the only saving grace I even finished listening to it.
I would suggest they start all over with a story that was entertaining & not so depressing
