Terminated | [Simon Wood]

Terminated

For Gwen Farris, the nightmare commences with the flash of a knife in a darkened parking lot.… That’s where Stephen Tarbell begins to exact his revenge against her for giving him a poor performance evaluation, for getting the promotion he believed was rightly his, and for being the woman who finally drove him over the edge. The threat escalates to an onslaught of physical and psychological intimidation so relentless that it threatens to destroy everything Gwen holds dear. And with the authorities unable - or unwilling - to help, Gwen has to take on Tarbell herself. But how do you stop a madman whose hatred knows no limit?

    "Ever scream at a book cuz the hero is so stupid?"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Right from chapter one the heroin of this book does the stupidest thing. And a seasoned cop of 30 years does a stupid thing? I swear you will barely care when some of the characters get bumped off. Very predictable story twist.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Simon Wood again?

    Not unless it's free, or maybe you pay me...


    Did Emily Beresford do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    All but the youngest kid. Her "little girl" voice was grating


    Do you think Terminated needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Gods NO!!!


    Any additional comments?

    Do better Simon

    "Entertaining read, ridiculous plot"

    This was my first Simon Wood read. While the narrative was entertaining, it kept my interest only because of my curiosity. The action scenes were realistically written and got my adrenaline flowing. However, these postives are nowhere near adequate to counter the one very serious shortcoming, that of the basic premise of the plot stretching credulity to the point of complete disbelief: without spoiling the read for others, the number of characters who are too afraid to inform on the villain in the storyline - one of whom is a retired police officer who doesn't even carry a weapon - results in their complicity in the villainous events, merely by keeping quiet. The author would have been well advised to have modified the plot to eliminate this very serious shortcoming. I mostly blame his editor for not advising him to do so. Although not yet published myself, I would have been embarrassed had I written this particular plot, as it defies belief.

    While I might read/listen to another Simon Wood tale, it must stand in line behind the 1,500 or so books I have backlogged, and it will be only because it is a 99 cent special or a gift from someone. I certainly will not waste an Audible credit to purchase it.

    "Superb story, awful narration."

    This book had me from the minute it started till the very end.

    The only thing I would change about this audio book is the way the narrator does exactly the same silly gruff voice for the males of the book. I don't feel the narrator did the book justice by over exaggerating the speech. People just don't talk in that robotic way.

    Great story line, very exciting but narrator spoilt it immensely.
