I didn't read the print version, so I can't make a comparison. But I feel in almost all cases, the audio version of a book is superior because you get to feel the characters. Their fear. Their suspicion. Their strength.
Caitlin was my favorite character because of her doggedness, conviction, and search for justice.
My favorite scene was when Henry proves to be a true hero.
This book will never make you laugh. I did find myself tearing up quite frequently. I had such an extreme emotional reaction to Natchez Burning - it gripped my heart, no, it gripped my whole soul. I don't see how anyone could read this book and not be moved. 35 hours went like lightning for me. Pure suspense, utter terror, and wondering all the while, will justice be done?
This was my favorite book ever. And I'm pretty old, and have read a lot of books. I saw that many people didn't like the narration. I thought it was perfect. He performed with such raw emotion that I felt I could have been there with the characters. My advice? Use your credit on Natchez Burning. It will do things to your insides.
This has got to be Tami Hoag's best book ever. From the very first page, I couldn't listen fast enough. The main character, Dana Nolan, has escaped from her serial killer captor by killing him, remembering nothing, but left with scars on her face and the number 9 carved on her chest. She has a traumatic brain injury and PTSD. She comes home after rehab only to experience more stress....and dangers anew. 5 out of 5. Yes. Read this.
I wish Teddy had had just an ounce of humanity in him. But he was a pure psycho.
The depravity of Teddy. And the ending was unsatisfying. I usually adore Ruth Rendell's books, but this one, not so much. The whole story just made me feel very sick and sad inside.
She was actually very good.
I wish I hadn't read it. It was so disturbing to me.
I loved Francine. If there was anyone who could've been Teddy's polar opposite, it was she.
Libby, of course. She was narrated just right, with just exactly the right amount of hopelessness, desperation, and then determination.
I wanted to but couldn't. I would sit in my car an extra several minutes after arriving at work, though, just listening and trying to figure out who done it.
I've never written a review before. Never felt compelled. But after finishing this book tonight, felt I had to. This book kept me hopping from one suspect to the next, and just when I thought I had it figured out...I didn't. I've never given a book 5 stars before, even in my head. This one deserved every last little bit of stars.
