Dividers is a stand-alone novel that pays homage to stories told by Stanley Kubrick. Billionaire Jacob Calbraw has just started a relationship with famed singer Celeste Marie. Their forbidden love affair has stirred the wrath of Jacob's father, Earl Calbraw. Since the two billionaires have been at war for years, and Earl still has Celeste under contract, the situation comes to a head in rapid fashion.
To further complicate things, Jacob awakens frequently in odd places, having lost several hours from his memory. He finds himself in a filthy Brooklyn, New York, bar bathroom and notices that his body is badly beaten. After a bit of reflection, he recalls kidnapping a little girl and locking her away somewhere...though he cannot put together all of the details.
As the story churns forward at a breakneck pace, Jacob begins to learn that things should not be taken at face value. It seems that something dark has overtaken his mind, and the source isn't clear. Has he been possessed by some malignant force, or succumbed to madness from 12 years of grieving for his missing mother? With each passing day, the young man must question whether events are taking place in the real world, or if he is just riding the demon. Is he experiencing these incredible things, or is someone systematically hijacking his mind?

It ranks #1, I'm not much of an audio book person, but this was great entertainment
Yes, it did. It is a nice thriller that doesn't let you down in terms of suspense
Well, so-so... honestly I preferred the book version still. But once I got used to his voice, I started liking the way he told the story.
Not laugh or cry, but it did have a lot of impact on my emotions. The story has a lot of drive, which kept me wanting to keep listening.
Just a genius piece of thriller - first time I hear it in audio version as I said. It was a great experience and I might definitely go on and listen to more audio books in the future. For all other readers out there: Dividers is a perfect mix of thriller, father-son relationship and mystery. It is a lot of fun to read or listen to - whichever version you prefer. Dividers is the perfect book to read, if you want to take a break and enjoy a good mystery-thriller.
Yes, I was very captivated by this story from the very beginning. I was always interested in the mystery surrounding Jacob, and couldn't wait to find out what was going on.
Jacob was my favorite, mainly because all the drama surrounded him. So many things were happening in his life and the main points of the story involved him. The others were very well developed and interesting as well, but he definitely held my attention the most.
Again, Jacob. The way Frank Frederick performed throughout was fantastic and added to the story in a wonderful way, but I especially loved his readings of Jacob.
The characters have been ovulated very intelligently. The story is full of surprises.
I do not read much book before. I do not found the similarity of this book with others
Its my first book Frank Frederick. But I want to listen more books by him.
Some event of this book make me lough loudly and some makes me cry. Its really a good combination in the story to attract the listeners.
The love between the children is what creates further hatred between the two families. Their love remains forbidden making the story even more interesting.
The starting of the relationship between Jacob Calbraw with the famed singer Celeste Marie.
Jacob who is the millionaire’s son has troubles of his own. He suffers memory loss due to the trauma of having lost his mum at an early age.
Is it racy or hatred?
This book will keep you hooked and interested. It is a must read.
Interesting, inspiring, motivating
Yes, the plot was excellent, and I couldn't put the book down!
It's hard to pick a favorite -- I really liked most of the scenes in the book.
I received this book as a gift. I enjoyed it thoroughly, and cannot wait to read more from this author!
I was really swept away into the world created by the novel. It is an intense story and being able to listen to it, especially with headphones, made the experience much deeper than just reading the book.
Without giving away a key plot scene, after several confrontations and constant disregard for human life, tensions build and something dark starts to take hold of one of the characters. What happens next really took a twist that I had not expected and suprised me in a very positive way. Also, one of the character's efforts to save his son is very powerful and emotional. It is a scene that I will long remember.
His performance is spot on. Not only does he narrate the book, but he acts it out most of the times, providing us with vivid images of the story.
Yes, it was, but although the novel was captivating and emotionally powerful, I listened to it over the course of 4 days, as I didn't have the time to do it in one sitting in a single day.
I was thrilled by the book and the narration. Whether you love or loathe the characters for what they are, the one thing that is sure is that you will feel deeply for them. It is indeed a rollercoaster emotional ride from start to finish.
Characters were easy to relate to, and the pace was steady. It's very rare that a book haunt me for a while after I've finished.
Jacob for the character and role on this story
This was unique, much appreciate his voice.
This book takes you on an unexpected emotional roller coaster and is one of those unique books that leave you feeling unsettled.
I am recommending this book to pass a great time for those who love books.
great book and the characters was created perfectly. audio quality was great
the excitment and the environment he created
very difficult need to thing deep for it
