From the start, this audio book sounded promissing and as the mysteries unfolded I found myself looking forward to my exercise sessions so I could find out what was happening next. The narrator was excellent and the suspense kept me interested nearly all the way. The plot lost it a little right at the end but not too much.
I love reading books but have used sudiobooks for the last 18 months as an incentive to do exercise (it works!) but had been dissapointed with the experience of listening to some of the books either because they are not really suitable for audio or because of the narrator. This book restored my faith. Happy listening !
I started this audiobook with a level of skepticism but was pleasantly surprised by it. The plot keeps surprising you till the end. Something I look forward to in my selections. The narrators also give credibility to the characters.
I am a fan of Harlan Coben and typically enjoy his books but this audiobook was thoroughly spoiled by its narrator who uses a monotone style that becomes terribly grating. I was looking forward to finishing the listen so I would not have to suffer the voice any longer. I will make sure to avoid any other books with the same narrator.
The underlying story is good but it was totally spoiled by two of the main characters: the FBI agents - male and female come across as totally unreal and following a police soap opera cliche specially when compared with the portrayal of the character of the terrorist which is credible and interesting.
If you like the type of novels that have a cynical wise-xss NY cop as the lead character then go for it but if you are looking for something more interesting I would not recommend it.
At the end I found myself fast forwarding all the inane banter passages to get to the end. A total waste of a few listening hours.
I enjoyed this book. It had enough unpredictable moments to keep you engaged and is very well read. I would recommend it for people that enjoy detective and courtroom plots.
