Although the author's talent is evident and there were some good spots in the story I got to a point where I just could listen no longer. I kept asking myself, where is this going. Answer, nowhere.
I kept listening thinking it was going to come together but it never did.This book has no purpose, the characters are uninteresting and the writer has you in each charaters head and they think and say the same things over and over and over again.
What I especially didn't like was the little sound effect that was used everytime a person was supposed to be speaking on a phone, or calling from outside, or listening to a tape. It was ridiculous to have the reader suddenly sound like he was reading into a voice changer so we would know that the conversation was taking place on the telephone.
I did not like anything about this book.
Beautifully written and beautifully read completely engrossing tale of 4 lives that become intertwined for one year of their lives.
I highly recommend this listen, the story is poignantl and heartfelt and the narration is superb.
I loved listening to this book, the narrator was wonderful and I look forward to listening to the rest of the trilogy.
I have never read or listened to Coben. I thought the story was dull and I hated the narration. He read as if he was reading a five year old a bedtime story.
Pages and pages of descriptions and similes. No matter what the object, i.e., snow, it was snow like .................... on and on. The story line itself could have been written in 20 pages however the premise of this story is preposterous, there was not one person I cared about in this book except for the little girl M.E. Don't waste the credits
I loved White Tiger. I do not know if I love the Last Man in Tower because I could not stand the narration of this book. The voices were so exagerrated and unpleasant that I gave up listening. I will have to
I did not enjoy the narration of this book, it seemed more like a radio show, with sound effects and the readers acting out their parts. Not for me!
This story went nowhere. It was completely dull and long winded.
I could not get through this. I am not sure if it was the reader, the story, or my mood but I finally had to turn it off.
