Too slow, too boring, too many words. And the narration I just can't enjoy. Didn't finish the book.
Too many words and descriptions about what the characters were thinking.
I would have enjoyed this, and other CJ Box books, with a different narrator. I can't help but get the feeling he's condescending in his approach and that the characters are all sniveling twits, at least that's how I feel while listening. I have the book in Whispersync and enjoy reading on the Kindle and then I groan through the Audible.
Simply a remake of "Lord of the Flies" with the F Bomb and sex thrown in for good measure. Too long and too predictable. Don't bother.
This book is just too long. Can I put too many "too's" in a reveiw? Too long, too many characters, too much detail, too many thoughts, too many....
I very much enjoy modern detective novels. I enjoy listening to Scott Brick as the narrator of many of the books available on Audible. This is the first time in probably 200 books that I've enjoyed that I turned it off within the first hour of the book. Too graphic of sex, murder, thoughts of the characters, etc. In my opinion it was too much.
I enjoyed the book; I really did. However, it's like Hollywood where they take an enjoyable story and then they just have to throw in the graffic sex, body part descriptions, and strange sexual fantacies. I wish that these writers would just stick to what they are good at; writing stories. I don't like to skip fast forward through these types of descriptions. Expecially when they have nothing to do with the overall flow of the story.
