It would have been better to have not bothered to write this at all.
A good writer, good prose, great story, something I normally do. This was an extremely bad choice. I have no doubt that the original movie, The Devil Wears Prada, was far superior to the written word.
The narrator was fine, however, a lesson or two in pronunciation would have been a good idea.
None I didn't even bother to finish it. It was too painful to listen to.
Don't waste money buying it.
The prose, the story line, the fact that this writer does not telescope the plot/ending. An extremely good mystery/thriller that has me, now, a fan who will download all of Greg Hurwitz books. I must also mention the reader, Scott Brick, who is absolutely a perfectchoice.
After listening to many books, I have finally found a writer that is worthy! Great prose, incredible story line, that does not telescope the plot/ending. A thriller in the true sense of the word. Frankly, I wanted to go straight through to the end, however, as it is so very good, I also wanted to savour it, and am still listening. I just wanted to share this so that more listeners can enjoy a fine writer. I shall download the rest of his books, hopefully, they will all be unabridged. If not, could Audible make it so. Thank you Greg Hurwitz, you have restored my faith in the written word. An avid Los Angeles listener.
I HAVE NOT FINISHED THIS BOOK YET, HOWEVER, THE STORY, SO FAR, IS WONDERFUL, BUT THE READER NEEDS LESSONS IN PRONUNCIATION. IT IS UNDERSTANDABLE THAT A FEW FOUR SYLLABLE WORDS MIGHT BE INCORRECTLY PRONOUNCED. HOWEVER, THE WORD DOGE, USED OVER AND OVER, AS IT NEEDS TO BE, AND PRONOUNCED DOUGHJAY GETS REALLY ANNOYING. I JUST WONDER WHY THIS SUBJECT WOULD NOT BE CHECKED BEFORE THE FINAL RECORDING! SORRY TO COMPLAIN ABOUT SOMETHING THAT MIGHT SEEM MINOR TO MOST. I SHALL REVIEW THE STORY WHEN FINISHED, I JUST NEEDED TO RANT.
