I kept finding excuses to sit with my Ipod and keep listening. It wasn't to hard to figure out what was going on early on in the story but there was a wonderful twist in the end. I love Harlan Coben and this is definitely on of my recent favorites.
The forward to this book by the author said to return this book if this was your first time listening to me. I was dubious about the book and thought I might return it (if I don't like books from Audible, I return them). The story and narrator drew me in. This was one of my favorite books by this author. Kept me guessing till the end. Half way through, I was thinking this is a very good listen, but there is no way it can have a good ending.
I was surprised.
I've always liked to listen to books Scott Brick narrates.
No extreme reaction.
Do yourself a favor and get this book. It took me a week to listen to the 17+ hours. You will wish you could hear more.
There were lots of people who said this book wasn't up to snuff.
Even the author makes note that it was his first book and that if you haven't read any of his others you should before reading this.... I don't get it....
I LOVED THIS BOOK!
It's been a long time since I was kept guessing right to the bitter end and this book just sucked me in and wouldn't let me go. Each time I thought I had figured out one small piece of the puzzle, it just proved that there were so many others that I had yet to even consider.
And, of course, the story is read by the one and only Scott Brick - a selling point for me on just about any book!
If you are looking for a great story that pulls you in, makes you think and keeps you guessing - this is it!
I don't follow to many authors. I stick with the tried and true that I have read and listened to for a long time. That being said I am running out of book for those authors so I have been searching for authors that will keep me interested and listening/reading. I bought Play Dead after a recommendation from a trusted friend and I loved it. It has so many twists and turns and kept me guessing all along. When ever I thought I knew what was coming, I discovered that I had no idea. Some books are very predictable but this one caught me off guard a couple times. This is a great listen for any mystery/adventure lovers. I think I have found a new author that I can enjoy.
There are many twists and surprises
I have always enjoyed Scott Brick. He reads for many of the authors that I listen to. He is one of the best
I laughed and cried. Many times I was surprised. This whole book put a smile on my face.
Harlan Coben is one of my favorite authors. Everything I have read by him has been fascinating. This book is one of his best. Coben never disappoints me.
Laura, she was so in love that nothing was going to stand in her way untill she found the truth to all of her questions.
I love to listen to Scott Brick he has a very soothing voice and really tells the story well.
Love, lies deceit & betrayal . When you think you have the answer you really don't.
This is an older Harlan Coben story but its really very good. I enjoyed this more than some of the lastest ones. Not formated or predictible. And anything read by Scott Brick is a plus!He makes the any story sexy and seductive.
The performance was above average. Easy to listen to Scott Brick; he does a good job bringing the characters to life.
Yes. Anybody who hasn't read a Coben book in the past will love it. People who have will recognize the style and catch the somewhat predictable plot lines, but still well worth listening.
Actually, I always prefer reading a book first, but Scott Brick is as good as anybody in the genre.
It was typically entertaining, but no extreme reactions.
Get the book. You won't be dissapointed.
Personally, I cant get past the narrator. I feel bad saying that because someone else may like him just fine but I couldn't even get thru the book because I dislike his narration so much. Too over dramatic and I wish a female narrated since the main character is a female.
I do like the plot. Maybe I'll try it again and see if I can get thru it.
For me in every way!!!!
Thought this was very good. Once I started could not put down. I thought I had it figured out early on, but could not figure out how it all fit together. I didn't fully put it together until allmost the end. This was the authors first book, don't know why he was so hard on it. I thought it every bit as good as some of his later works. Read it in 2 days, very quick read.
