    "the narrator wrecks the story"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    hard to follow the dialoque between two people when the narrator gives them the same voice

    "Fast paced and exciting"

    It is so thrilling that I found myself sitting in my car in the garage, after my long commute, listening to the next chapter! I am not a Jeff Abbott fan.

    Story
    "Has been on the wish list, forever,"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Minute to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the print. The job I have and the life I lead, I need someone to read to me while I get stuff done. I love love having some one reading to me.


    What other book might you compare The Last Minute to and why?

    Can not think of any. I don't compare books. I'm such an addict for books. I've listened to other Jeff Abbott books and I love Kevin T's narration. They had me at "this is audible" I love these guys. Jeff gives me what I need in a thriller.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love Mina, she is a gritty lady, just love her. Any scene she's in.


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

    Yes I did,. The love of family. Sister for sister then father for son. Friend for friend.


    Any additional comments?

    I will listen to this one a couple more times. There are suddle remarks made that could be missed.

    Story
    "better editing would have helped"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    the anxiety of the book did not evolve with the plot; therefore it was a little repetitive


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    because of who the characters were, I was really satisfied with the ending...a great twist


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked when mila gets her revenge


    Do you think The Last Minute needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    it seems open for a follow-up; if there were a little more editing (beefing up the characters, not have so much repetitive emotional statements, etc.) it could be an really great book.

    "Read the book but dont listen to the audiobook"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I had to give up at 6 hours into the book, just couldnt take the narrator for one more minute


    How could the performance have been better?

    A narrator who was a bit faster, less breathy, with a less emotionally laden voice

    Story
    "Took a while to get into this one...but worth it."

    I honestly stopped listening to this book about three or four times. The words "I have to get back my son!" started to grate on me during the first couple of chapters. However, I gave it another chance and kept listening. Once I made it over the hump (about an hour or two in) it really picked up and became quite exciting. Mr. Collins, really disappears into each character whether it is Sam (clearly American with no discernible accent) or Milla (a woman from Moldova). I would sometimes forget it was the same person doing both voices.

    It was suspenseful at times, witty and funny in odd moments. The story was predictable at times, but there are only a few options of how things can resolve in any thriller, so perhaps "predictability" is always a possibility depending how you are guessing at the next progression of the story. Overall, I am glad I purchased it and powered through some of the earlier moments that just became repetitive and didn't quite gel.

    From the middle of the book on, I really did find myself excited about the next time I would be able to sneak some time in to have a listen.
