I usually try not to write reviews for a good book with a bad reader, but I had to give a review on this one. Overall the reader's voice is fine. I struggled with his voices for different people in the book. Many of his voices sounded exactly the same as other voices. Many of his voices kind of sounded like he was doing an impersonation of Kip from Napoleon Dynamite. The story took a little while to get going but overall I did enjoy the story.
I'm not sure about the negative reviews for this book. I really enjoyed it. Two of my favorite Coben books were Tell No One and No Second Chance. I felt like this book was more in line with both of those books. I also enjoyed the fact that the language and violence were minimal.
I listened to about three hours worth. The language was so bad- I just could not take it. I know the drug scene is rough, but I don't need the f-word in every sentence.
Stay Close is on par with Harlan Coben's other stand alone novels. It was engaging and the story line continued to move through out the entire book. I'm not sure why there are some reviewers who seemed to hate Scott Brick's narration. I have listened to probably 30 books narrated by Scott and he does a great job through all of them.
If you are a parent of a teenager, or even a younger child- this book is a must read. Rob does a great job discussing sexuality and the dangers of making your child an 'angel' or letting your child be an 'animal.'
