    "euw.Just yuck."
    Would you try another book from C.J. Box and/or Holter Graham?

    Want to masturbate to violent porn? Here is your chance.


    Has The Highway turned you off from other books in this genre?

    yUCK


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    YUCK.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Very sick. Ugh. Just ugh.

    "I wanted to like it more than I did"

    I like books set in Montana where place plays a prominent role. I thought the kidnapped girls might develop into detailed gross gore. That didn't happen. It must be part of a series but I'm not inspired to read the one that came before, nor do I want to read the next one.

    Authenticity demerits: the detour described over Beartooth Pass in the third week in November is highly improbably. That pass closes in mid October and to the best of my knowledge, has never been open in November. Global warming may change that sometime in the future but it has not yet happened. IF the pass were open, it has an elevation of almost 11,000 feet and has hair raising hairpin turns that would either scare the bejesus out of a high school driver or send her over the edge when she hit black ice. Even a teenage driver can't text and stay alive on that road.

    No native Montanan would route anyone over that pass in October much less November. I've seen it closed (for days) by snow in July.

    No trucker would detour over Beartooth Pass because, not only is it closed in November, I don't think large semi trucks are allowed.

    Authenticity points: the road through Yellowstone Park from Cooke City to Gardiner IS kept open all winter. There is a religious group that bought a lot of land near Gardiner.

    "What a GREAT Ride!"
    If you could sum up The Highway in three words, what would they be?

    Can't-stop-listening good, surprising, great audio performance.


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

    I was expecting the good and bad guys to predictably finish out the book. I was wrong! Lots of twists and turns.


    Have you listened to any of Holter Graham’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I LOVE this guy. Wish he had more books that I could listen to. I think this is one of the best audio books that I have listened to thanks in large part to his reading performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hang on -- it's going to be a bumpy ride!


    Any additional comments?

    The audio performance was great. The story line kept me on the edge of my seat -- so much so that I was looking for excuses to get to my study and listen to the book. I have had to rewind to catch up on previous Audible's that I have had lukewarm interest. Not in this case. I couldn't wait to hear what happened next. One of the best audio books that I have listened to.

    Story
    "Best hang on to something! What a ride"

    Definitely a story of dark and scary subject matter and a surprising twist that bummed me out - but with that said this story held my attention from beginning to end and the narrator was excellent. I'm not going to say much because this is one book a reader needs to go into without any preconceived ideas.Being a female who travels by herself and lives behind unlocked doors, I have to admit I think I need to sleep with my flare gun close at hand - or something. Makes one think about the creeps out there in or world. CJ Box is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers but I think the next thing I download needs to be some happy chic lit book. I'll need to beef up my "feel safe" attitude after this one. I would have give the book a 5 star across the board except the story took me a bit past my comfort level but it doesn't mean it will take you that close.

    "Best listen of the year!"
    What made the experience of listening to The Highway the most enjoyable?

    The narrator and the story were well matched. Many surprises some not to my liking but consistent within the story line. I don't want to spoil the story so I give no details but I listened non stop. Now I will listen again.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cody is my favorite. but.......


    What about Holter Graham’s performance did you like?

    I like his change in tone for various characters. strong females don't sound like guys in drag.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    yes
