I've had this one on my list for some time. I finally listened and was not disappointed. I'm not sure I could ever read the book after listening. Ackland did an excellent job narrating. His voice has a very dark, creepy quality to it. I could clearly picture both the writer and reader of the letters.
A friend recommended this book to me, and so I tried desperately to like it. I feel asleep listening and did not go back to hear the parts I missed. I just wanted to finish it. I swear it went on FOREVER! It was truly painful.
This was a little juvenile as the characters are high schoolers. So some sections were somewhat annoying. Having said that, it was still a touching story of the victims who are left behind after a loved-one's suicide.
I love how the author gives you a picture of all of the characters' view points, instead of just one. It really makes the story 3-dimensional. I don't know if she does that with all of her books, but I am definitely interested in finding out!
I've always been a mystery/thriller true crime reader, but I'm coming around to the science fiction side. Wil Wheaton deserves a good deal of credit for that. I became a Wheaton fan after listening to Ready Player One. I don't know how he performs other genres, but he does an excellent job with sci fy. Lock In is a good mix of sci fy and mystery.
Great story. Lots of plot twists. Somewhat predictable, but still a great listen and well worth the credit.
I couldn't get past the first hour, it was so dreadfully boring! I just refuse to waste my time anymore on a book that doesn't grab my attention from the start. There are too many great stories out there to bother listening to something so dull.
This book drags in some spots, picks up, then slows again, but the ending is the overall redeeming reason I have it 3 stars.
Definitely not what I usually listen to, but glad I read the reviews! It immediately grabs your attention. I couldn't stop listening!
SO FREAKING FUNNY! If you have children, you need to read/listen to this book. Certain parts of the book made me laugh so hard, I nearly peed my pants.
I can't really pinpoint why I disliked this book so much. I think because the overriding theme was so depressing. I am a big King fan, but just did not like this book. The best thing it had going for it is David Morse' performance. I believe he portrayed the idea a Stephen King wanted, it's just a really depressing story. I know his books don't generally tell “happy" stories, but this one was just different and sad.
