She fits the main character very nicely and rounds her out as a street-smart girl of the appropriate age. Only once in a while does she go over the top and make it a bit cheesy.
All in all I listened to this start to finish with few breaks in between. It definitely had me hooked.
I skipped the first book of the series and went into this one instead. As criminal mysteries go it was pretty good. The gruesome murder had me hooked right away and guessing all the time as to who had done it. The police work was mostly believable, though a few minor parts seemed unlikely to happen in the real world. There were some very interesting plot lines merging together to keep me hanging by every word, but in the end I was disappointed by the whole
I'm no kid, but I do live next to a cranberry bog.
The first line of Lisa Gardner’s “Hide” catches your attention right away. Definitely better than “It was a dark and stormy night.” No plot or character discussion here, but suffice to say that the first hour of the book after that first line hook keeps you careening along.
There are a few slower moments scattered about, but all-in-all this book is a real page turner, word listener, or a CD switcher (your choice). Much of the credit also goes to the reader, the aptly named Maggi-Meg Reed.
I’ve seen some criticism of the ending -- which may not be the book’s strongest point -- but by my standards the book hung together right through the slightly convoluted ending. Good book!
I’m going to squeak out five stars for this one.
I was hooked by this book at first -- a troubled young woman who has spent most of her life in hiding, a serial killer who may be stalking her, links between this case and another one from the detective's past. But I felt so cheated by the climax -- without spoiling the ending, it was bizarre that a case this complex, with an entire task force devoted to solving it, could almost go off the rails because of shoddy police work. They blow the budget on surveillance and travel and an ill-considered sting operation, but forget such minor details as background checks on suspects and remembering to guard the killer's target? Please! Also really bugged me that at least two people knew the identity of the serial killer years earlier but one of them is still portrayed as a hero. Very frustrating ending after such a promising premise.
Lisa Gardner did a great job in setting up the plot at first with the mysterious 6 wet mummies and the peculiar behavior of many of the characters. This constantly keeps the readers on the edge. But when it is time to reveal the whole story, Lisa leave it to a single character. This guy basically fill in all the blanks. Suddenly, the whole novel loses its shroud of mystery, and with it, its excitement. I was anticipating a much more of a grand plot, or at least a long hard adventure for the other characters to find out the truth. Apparently not the case here. Also, the final fight between the psychopath and the "good guys" is also disappointing with little suspense.
I get so excited sometimes about writing a review..good or bad...that why sometimes I misspell words..lol..
This is one of her best books yet! The ending was so surprising! I couldn't stop listening and finished in 3 days. Worth the credit!
This book caught my attention right from the start. The book is a very good mystery and keeps you guessing throughout.
I would greatly recommend this book.
I'm new to this author but I love how the secrets are being exposed all the way through the books. She had me thinking one way and then I'm surprised when the characters behavior meant someting completely different. Great series.
