No need for the F word CONSTANTLY. NONE!
Not from other books int he genre, but definitely from this author. This was my last time to purchase her books.
ANYONE WITHOUT A LISP! Who hires these PEOPLE who have lispssssss????? HOW STUPID. The woman has a LISP!
I have no answer for this question.
There are times when the F word is appropriate, but 90% of this could have been left out or used another word. They even had the dogs thinking the F word. SERIOUSLY?! The male character used it constantly in just every day speak ... it had no place whatsoever. The sex scenes were just too harsh, unloving and disgusting. Many have complained about all the dog training info, but I found that interesting ... the rest of the book, not so much. This will be my last purchase from this author. I did just finish WITNESS from this author and it was very good, but I won't buy any more of hers due to the language. It's just not necessary to use that language CONSTANTLY.
The story is very good and the narrator made it so enjoyable! I could not stop listening.
You don't know how it all ties together until the end of the book. This author is excellent and although toward the end, I was able to put together two and two, there were still aspects that I did not know until the very end.
I can't possibly name a favorite. The author does an exceptional job with description and I can see the scenes in my mind with no problem. I am hooked on this writer.
I have listened to two of the books by this author. The Husband's Secret was a little better than this one, but completely different. The narrator bought both of these books to life. I'm going to try another one by this author, but the narrator is different ... I hope it is as good!
Fascinating. Gripping. Shocking.
This is by far the best true crime book I have ever read. I don't know of any book that compares. You won't be disappointed.
At first I though Kevin Pierce's reading was not going to be to my liking, but I adjusted to his rhythm quickly and enjoyed his voice. Laural had very little reading, but what she did was good.
ABSOLUTELY! I would get to my destination and sit in my car and listen to three more chapters before MAKING myself stop! It's a long book, but I didn't want it to end. I plan to listen to it again.
Although this book is a true story and contained some sexual portions, it was told in a way that was not vulgar with basically no profanity. I sat shaking my head many, many times as I listened, wondering why this woman stayed with him and also shocked that such evil exists in our world? It was a well-written book and I'm now looking for others from this author.
The narrator was the first disappointment. I will never buy another book that he reads. He is FAR too dramatic and he did not take a break when scenes changed. Left you wondering what was going on? You finally realize he has started talking about other people and other places. Just a little break would have helped make that transition.
Leave out at least 10 of the characters. At least.
Scott Brick has a good voice, but he is overly dramatic and I can't believe the police speak to suspects with such distain/hatred ESPECIALLY when they are interviewing a doctor. At the first of the book he was so overacting ... it got better, but it was still so over the top ... about 3/4 of the way through I wasn't sure I could finish it. His over enunciation and "attitude" just drove me to distraction ... made it hard to concentrate on the words he was reading.
There are so many, I don't know where to start. Moe would be one. He had a small part, so why have him? Honestly it would not matter who you cut out, the story was still so unbelievable. This was my first Harlan Coban book ... and probably my last.
Before I bought, I read the reviews ... "You'll be sitting in your garage listening to this one." No, you won't. Save your credit.
Absolutely! The narrator somehow knows exactly how the book is to be read.
I don't want to say without spoiling it for others.
Everything! He is a master at changing his voice for each character! How he does it is a mystery! Beautiful jog!
I have read others by Greg Iles and will again.
This book was SO SLOW ... NOTHING HAPPENS. NOTHING. I just kept listening thinking surely something was going to happen. If you are a tech geek, you might like hearing about how computers operated in the 80's because that is ALL THEY TALK ABOUT, except sex chat on line ... all of which is just un-interesting. There is also a lot of "poor taste" comments and dialogue. I have read two others by Greg Iles, Black Cross (which was excellent) and Devil's Punchbowl (which was mediocre). I have another one by him ready to load ... I hope it's good ... if not, this will be my last Greg Iles book. I was very disappointed in this book ... so much so that I deleted it from my library with about 14 hours left to listen. I just couldn't do it ...
Do not waste your credit on this one. You will wish you hadn't.
I will never get another book by Gillian Flynn. The narrators were fine, in fact, excellent, but the book was SUCH a disappointment.
This could have been an excellent book, but there was no justice. The idea was a good one and the layout of the book was good. In fact, I was enjoying it up to near the end and then it just fell flat. I was SO disappointed.
Both were excellent! I would be happy to listen to either of them again.
The last several chapters. They needed to be rewritten with an ENDING. Just left me hanging ... I hate that.
Don't waste your time. I was left feeling completely disappointed and unsatisfied.
Having a clue who actually killed the people.
It has only turned me off on this author.
No, but the narration was fine, it was the story that was pitiful.
It was a good book up to a point, but you were left not knowing anything.
Skip this ... it was just pitiful.
