Audible Editor Reviews

Editors Select, March 2014 - While not my go-to genre, every now and then I like to sit back and take in a good mystery/thriller. So, when I saw that Harlan Coben was coming out with a new stand-alone novel, I felt it was the perfect time to try out something new from an author I knew well by reputation (through countless rave reviews from Audible members) but never read or listened to personally. Missing Youwas exactly what I was hoping for: a cleverly conceived, suspenseful thrill-ride with cops and bad guys. There's a taken-from-the-headlines sense to the story where 40-year-old NYPD detective, Kat Donovan, discovers an old love and stumbles upon a possible gateway into a mysterious crime world through an online dating site her friend signs her up for. If you are looking for some smart entertainment and the kind of book you just can't put down, I can highly recommend Missing You. For anyone who is already a Coben fan, Missing You offers something new in a strong female protagonist, and a strong female narrator in January LaVoy to boot! —Tricia, Audible Editor

    "Drawn out but good twists"

    Full of twists but at times drawn out. Everything wrapped up well just took forever to get there.

    "Warning: trite romance ahead"

    So disappointed in H Coben. Plot is mediocre, dialogue is trite, boring, simple. Narration is much too slow, especially considering how concrete and trite the words are. I listened to it at 1.5 speed just to see if it got any better. It didn't.

    "Enjoyable Suspense Novel"

    I enjoyed this story and seeing how everything tied together in the end. There was one part that I knew was coming from the beginning, but even though it took the characters in the book much longer to figure out, I still really enjoyed this book a lot. It was my first Harlan Coben book, but I will be checking out more of his books now.

    Story
    "Narration was Tedious"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Missing You to be better than the print version?

    No


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Somewhat.


    What didn’t you like about January LaVoy’s performance?

    Coben's prose about the passionate love affair between Kat & Jeff was repetive and took way too much of the story. Her rendition of this was so tedious in the beginning that I was about to can the book and get a refund. And by the time the "reunion" rolled around, I was too close to the end to chuck it. When she did the main parts of the book, she had a passable performance. However, she is considerably lacking in a talent to express most emotions. This detracted a lot from my enjoyment of Coben's real rtalent.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes - see the above commentary. No, I neither laughed nor cried

    "not a great narration/performance"

    Predictable story and the narration was really mediocre. First H.C. book I have read... unimpressed.

    "Best one yet!"

    Has to be Coven's best one yet. The story has one twist after another that are unexpected and beautifully woven together. So happy I picked this one up.

    Story
    "Disturbing on so many levels"

    I'm not sure where to start. It's so disturbing to think that someone created this story line. It was very complex to say the least. The key female character Kat Donovan's story intertwined into the line of fire of a very disturbed human who was scheming innocent people of their money and holding them hostage in unmanageable conditions until he stole all the money he wanted and then murdered them in horrific ways. It was interesting to see how the story of her fathers death played into the plot and outcome. The last 10 chapters I had to make myself finish because it was so disturbing.

    The narration was okay for the voice of Kat Donovan but not for the male characters. Not my favorite by far.

    I'm not sure I'll be able to listen to or think of the the John Waite song "Missing You" in the same way again.

    "Terrific Narration, Exciting Story"

    The narrator captured the different characters in an appealing way. I especially liked her voice for Brandon.

    The story was exciting, intriguing, fast-paced and even had some romance. One tiny thing I didn't like about the story: Stacey and Cat were too derisive toward the potential suitors who approached them. (Or maybe I should say 'random guys who approached them in the bar' instead of suitors.) I would not, right off the bat, label a guy who orders a "Dasani" instead of a bottled water as an irredeemable douche. Also, could they say they were not interested in a kinder way?

    It's been a while since I've read a Harlan Coben. I think I will start reading them again.
