Intriguing, captivating, suspenseful
Brian Freeman's books always grab my attention and are the kinds of stories I find it difficult to walk away from. I have to admit that being a Minnesotan I like the fact that his stories take place in Minnesota locales that I am familiar with.
Joe Barrett is probably one of my favorite narrators. His voice is so easy to listen to, soothing rather than grating. He distinguishes between different characters without over doing it.
It grabbed my attention from the very beginning and never let it go.
Jonathan McClain does an excellent job of narration! Characters are defined with different voices, but not overdone. His narration is very easy to listen to and even though the story had a somewhat slower start than usual, I didn't want to stop listening to it.
When the guilty party was revealed, I don't want to say any more because I don't want to give away the plot.
He is one of my favorite narrators for all of the reasons I mentioned above.
I'm never disappointed with the Jack Reacher books, they keep me sucked in until the very last page.
There were many twists, I never really new exactly who all of the "bad guys" were. The story took place in two locations, one part told in first-person by the main character and the other part in third person. The switch in locations was handled very smoothly.
There were many memorable moments, but I wont be specific because I don't want to give any of the plot away.
The final scene when the guilty got what they deserved.
Yes, I always wanted to get back to it. I listened to part of it while working out and felt guilty because I didn't want to stop when my friends joined me.
I already owned the third book in the series, but decided I wanted to read them in order so I purchased this. I'm glad I did because I understand the background of the mean characters. I'm going to get the 2nd book before listening to the 3rd. Ray Porter does an excellent job with the narration. He's very easy to listen to.
The story had a good plot and lots of interesting twists and turns. It kept me guessing right up to the very end.The only thing that made the entire 11 hours and 40 minutes excruciating was the narration.
There was nothing I liked about Franette Liebow's performance except when it ended! The entire book was read in the voice of a damsel in distress from a bad romance movie. The men were either high pitched and screechy or so overdone with the fake accent they weren't believable. I'd dreaded the romance scene that I felt was in the offing and it was even worse than I'd feared, because of those voices.
I will definitely read more of Karen Robards's books, but I will never again listen to anything narrated by Franette Liebow.
I didn't feel there was 12 hours of story to the book. Lots of twists and turns, but I wish a few of the loose ends had been tied up.
No. It just want as thrilling as many of the other books I've read/listened to.
Yes, he did different voices and was consistent with them. I've listened to others that are better.
For me, not really.
