I only listen to audio books so I wouldn't know.
They are all my favorite characters. It's the cast of characters that make the novels so interesting, many of them are regulars.
I haven't listened to him before. I was just happy that he didn't annoy me.
Yes, it was. It was a terrific book and I didn't want it to end.
This is Jeffrey Deaver at his best with an excellent narrator. There are so many turns and twists that you can't figure out and don't see coming that I began to wonder how Jeffrey Deaver could even have such a complex imagination. I'm sorry that his series isn't narrated all by the same person. I don't like going from one narrator to another when I'm listening to a series.
Or I wouldn't have been able to listen to the narrator. His voice was fine but he was either pausing to sip drinks of water or turning pages or doing something that made an intrusive sound throughout the book every twenty or so seconds and it was almost enough to make me return the book.
However, I became so engrossed in the story that I actually forgot about the narrator from time to time and didn't want to stop listening in spite of whatever the narrator was doing.
I couldn't figure out who the bad guys were until the very end and even then I didn't figure it out. There were twists and turns frequently enough that, just about the time I thought I had it figured out, something different would happen.
It's well worth the credit. Dan Brown doesn't disappoint.
I've loved every one of his novels even though I pretty know what the basic plot is going to be. This one just didn't hold up like the others. I was very disappointed. It went on too long and didn't have the kind of suspense I'm used to with this author.
It's a good story with plenty of twists and I certainly wouldn't downgrade it to a three but nothing gets developed enough to make this a five star, not the characters, the story, or the ending, which just ends when there are a lot more things that could be answered instead of left hanging. What happens to the good guy for instance and his relationship with the girl? It's a longer story condensed into a fairly long story. Also, the bad guy deserves a lot more bad instead of the abrupt ending.
This novel has so many twists and turns I couldn't figure it out. The suspense lasted right up to the very end. Even as far fetched as some of it seemed I didn't care because it was fast paced and I was always guessing. I haven't cared for a couple of the Rhyme books but this one is a winner!
I really didn't want this book to end. It was interesting every step of the way. I couldn't ever figure out what was coming next, the narrator was great.
I haven't been listening to much of Coben because I listened to a couple of disappointing books but he hit a home run with this one.
I highly recommend it!
Hurwitz wrote a winner with this one. I couldn't figure it out at all and was intrigued the entire time. There is no down time, it's fast paced and full of suspense. Scott Brick does an excellent job narrating it.
description and not enough action. It's worth listening to but then again, someone needs to teach Dick Hill how to read women's parts so they don't all sound like lispy air heads, especially when White's female characters are anything but. The book is interesting. It's worth purchasing but I've listened to other authors that hold my attention better.
Gardner is fairly new to me so I was unsure as to the quality of her writing overall. This book kept me interested every moment! I couldn't believe it. I've also been listening to some Steven White and Lee Child and am very tired of having to listen through the dull, tear my hair out, boring parts to get to the good parts. I couldn't figure this book out at all. It kept me guessing right up to the last twelve minutes. The readers were very good and didn't detract from the novel. I highly recommend this listen.
I have one more novel to listen to by Lutz and then I won't have anymore serial killer novels. Lutz manages to write about the same subject in the same city every single time and every single time I just don't want to stop listening. I have no idea how he manages it but he does and every one is a very good listen. Scott Brick is an excellent reader.
I love the Jack Reacher series but they are uneven. Some are riveting and some, like this one, have me wishing that a good editor had gone through the novel and done a lot of cutting. There was just too much time spent on what people are thinking or on descriptions that just didn't add to the story. Even Dick Hill, one of my favorite readers, couldn't pull it along.
