I used to read John Saul and all I remember are ghostly stories about children. Been quite a while obviously. Since this was written in 1997 I believe I'll have to see what's happening with him now. This one reminded me of the early James Rollins for some reason. It does have that element of "Don't open that door!" When I read only I had to creep through those pages but now I've incororated the thrill of vocalizing, "DON'T!!!" Scared my family to death in the beginning but now they just ignore me with an occasional "Duh, Mom."
This is my first Alex Berenson book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Have to get into the following John Wells stories to see if this is consistent. At this point I'd recommend it. Good narration.
I love Baldacci's books and do enjoy Oliver but this was a bit sad. Oliver Stone has had so much gusto but seems almost needy in this one. I'd listen again but think I'd still feel sorry for John Carr.
Weird, strange, demented, warped. I enjoyed it even thought it did creep me out in spots. Not my normal read but who wants to be normal?
I think everyone addicted to audiobooks agrees that the narration can make or break a book. At least that's my call. Peter Hermann is amazing. He's German, Russian, American, Iranian, you name it. I am no linguist but I get the picture regardless of language. Coe provides the story, Hermann brings it to life.
Can't wait for the next Coe. There has to be a #5, right?
Once in a while this wandered a tad but as much as I enjoyed the book (spooky), hat's off to the narrator. It was a fun, creepy, piece of art. This is one of those books you take a chance on since few of your favorites are available. Good choice for me and if you're up for something out of left field, I say give it a try.
I'm hooked on King and Maxwell and although this was a little slow on the uptake for me, once it got going it was hard to re-charge. My two mandatory listen spots are working in the yard and in the car. As dirt covered and insect repellant drenched as I am when I come in, if the book is good I hate unloading my phone, Kleenex, etc., and especially my MP3. But with this one I found a way to shed all and continue listening. That for me ... is a dadburned good book!
I enjoyed the book but there were a couple of stretches. That however, is true of plenty of authors. I still enjoyed the book but the thing that caught my attention was Armand Schultz. He has a wonderful range. I was so caught up in the story until I realized how authentic he sounded. Never lost the story line but enjoyed it more once I realized what I was missing.
Harlan Coben is one of my favorites between serious to Myron Bolitar. I enjoyed it so much I had a time with the transition to my next book. But I imagine if you listen a great deal you'll know exactly what I mean. For me, this was one of those stories I wanted to go on and on.
Sometimes time seems to stretch while waiting for favorite authors to publish the next book. So this gives us another character to follow which is great in my opinion.
