Nesbo is such a superb writing that even his worse is better than most people's best. That said, this novel was not my favorite. I think Nesbo should take a break from the Harry Hole series and write some more stand alone books. This novel was a bit chaotic and a bit too much. There were too many threads going at once, and there was an evil character, who was too evil and too omnipotent.
Some of the characters acted incredibly stupidly.
As a mother and a women some of the scenes were very painful.
The rape scenario was a bit much...
I love the Hole series, but this didn't hold together. I think that Hole himself is such a big character, that if he isn't anchoring the novel, there isn't enough to hold it together.
evil and chaos
But it ended abruptly.
The narrator handles the characters well. She makes one loathe some characters by the tone of her voice and feel sorry for others.
But there was one character that I loved the most, very interesting, and intense. Interesting plot, but I liked the character development and back stories the best.
Very long winded, without an ending? Very strange. It's as if the author decided to write every detail that ever existed in the world, but then suddenly got tired and ended the story.
many were very long winded with way too much detail
huh? shaggy dog tail.
I think Grisham was an okay writer, and some of his writing is still okay, but the ending left me a little bit awestruck by it's ineptness.
It's better than his previous few which were unreadable.
Give up on Grisham
Grisham has run out of plot.
I don't think she wrote about Haver's brushing her teeth or using the toilet, but every other act was well-documented. And just as you think you are done, it goes on... and on... and on...
And all the characters are extremely stupido.
No, I think I am done
huh? Probably most of them
Long and boring, with very stupid characters.
I haven't finished it, and it's very well-written, but each hope seems to be crushed.... Over and over again.
Yes, and no. I kept wanting to go forward, because I want an okay ending
Karl is always my favorite
I realized that I dread having to listen it to the end. Since this is supposed to junk reading, I can't imagine why I am torturing myself. I hate the main character, and the creepy men lusting after her. I'm shocked that a mother could be thinking about anything but her daughter in this story. Sorry I can't imagine lusting after anyone, if my child were in danger. The story is confusing, which is okay, but I am not invested enough to want to figure it out. I think Deaver is going on my list of, wait for the reviews before investing a credit. Now I have to return it...
Better characters, better writing, and better plot... other than that it was a good book
I don't know, as I don't know the narrators' names, but January overacts the overwrought writing.
I feel like the author just got bored writing and stopped. This is my first and now my last Charles Todd book. He's a good writer, but no one should end a book the way he did. It really felt like it ended mid-thought. I've never read a book that ended this way. I wouldn't suggest this, unless you love Charles Todd.
Simon is a very good narrator.
bafflement, and disappointment.
Not worth the time.
WTF? I feel like I am being punked by Audible. I have never noticed a narrator, and this is the second book in a row that has a bad/horrible narrator. I can't listen to this. ARGH! Got to call and get a refund. But so disappointed in Audible, they are destroying my favorite authors.
Can't get passed the narration
Anger and disappointment
Why oh why? Don't you have anyone listen to these books before putting them out?
