Since I already paid for it at some time in the future I intend to finish it. I only made it about an hr into the story before I found myself another book, Anna Fields just kills the whole story. Her voice doesn't change depending on who is speaking so I keep finding myself lost on what character is saying what. Some how a character from the west coast has a southern accent.
I had listened to this book years ago when it first came out but I still got it again. The entire story is mesmerizing and so wondefully written. Richard North Patterson has been hit or miss over the last few times but Exile is an all time great.
I'm not a Stephen King fan in any way. I read "The Stand" when I was a teenager and nothing else he ever did really struck me like that book did. I listened to "The Dome" a while ago and I will still go back to it from time to time. No one else could have made the characters come alive like Raul Esparza did. The story goes a little into the twilight zone at the end, but all Stephen King novels usually take a trip into wierd zone at some point. I don't think going into the wierd took anything away from this book. The characters were so vivid and alive, you don't come away from this book feeling like you didn't get the whole story.
I kept finding excuses to sit with my Ipod and keep listening. It wasn't to hard to figure out what was going on early on in the story but there was a wonderful twist in the end. I love Harlan Coben and this is definitely on of my recent favorites.
I have never written a review for a book before but I think this one is worth it. It's not for everyone and can seem to draw out at points. I thinks it's realistic sci fi. I usually buy audio books to listen to while I drive to work or do boring tasks but I couldn't wait to keep listening to this one.
