buy it now
absolutely, I was thinking one way next thing you know I was llike oh my gosh your kidding.
Honestly everything was my favorite.
This was my first Audible book and my first for Kenra Ellliot, I have now purchased 2 more of hers. And I don't think I will read a book without being in Audio, i'm hooked and I love it!
As a psychiatrist addiction is important to me. I am addicted to audible books, kindle books, my husband, and my thirteen cats.
Take a good plot, good guy vs. bad bad guy. Then add in great setting, cleaver characters and unknown upcoming events. WOW should have been great right?
Well ruin it with poor narrator, very slow pace in places, one to many helicopter crashes, names to close to the same to understand while narrating. Oh, and don't forget to include shallow characters with little depth, unrealistic events and most importantly, no buildup, no drama just plan, yeah it happened duh. returning this one.
I would like to see some of the reflection on the past as action scenes. I continued to read thinking it would eventually improve and grab my attention
No, not at all. When I finished all I could think of was-why???
I finished it but only just. I think it's amateurish and badly written. Too much of what is important to the story -- even who the "bad guy" is -- is revealed in the characters' thoughts rather than through action, i.e. something happening. And at the same time there are long scenes with sighing, looking, touching -- certainly part of developing the story, but, perhaps, not as deserving of "action" as advancing the plot. I'm sure I've said it badly. This is a big yawner -- in spite of love at first site, plane crash, escaped mass murderer, avalanche, etc.
I was so glad when it was over and I could go on to John Sandford's latest.
Hmm...I'm not sure. I had high hopes, as we met the hero in book 1. He seemed like a more Alpha hero. I wasn't a fan of how he lied to insert himself into the search & rescue from the get go in this story, and can't say that my opinion of his character built from there. The writing wasn't bad, I just could NOT warm up to the this hero...
The hero...I really wanted to like him, but the more I learned about him, above and beyond the fact that he lied from the start, I really didn't like. He'd chosen his wife over his brother with special needs, and she didn't even come across as anything but cold. And how could he accidentally stab a friend & co worker? Why was he pacing & ranting w/ a letter opener anyway? In my eyes he came across borderline baddie.
She did. I liked her much better than the narrator from book 1 ~ and it's too bad I just could NOT bring myself like this book.
Ha. Alex, the hero.
I really enjoyed book 1, and like the authors writing style. I just didn't like the path she took Alex down...,and that's totally my opinion, but I couldn't even finishe this one. I got tot the part where they'd dug him out of the avalanche, and to be honest? I didn't like Alex enough to stick with it. And I really wanted to! The premise was a good one...the set up was good, but that one character killed it for me.
When I read the premise for this book I was not immediately sold on it. I decided to give it a chance because the author is amazing. The story sucked me in as with all of the previous books I have read by Kendra Elliot and kept me thoroughly entertained until the end. However, I am a nurse and felt that the main female role was under shadowed as a broken woman in need of emotional rescue when I feel her character could have been a bit stronger in this story. Other than that I was very satisfied with the love story underlying the suspense. Another wonderful job done by Kendra Elliot and I cannot wait to continue reading her works.
Even though I was sort of expecting this book to be a continuation of the previous book & character, I got into it pretty easily. I liked that Alex was a fairly restrained character & "in his head", but felt that the characterization of the team members needed more depth. The descriptions of the serial killer in this story made him very creepy. Kept me engaged for the entire book.
