    "Great Autheor and Narrator Discovery..."

    Bought this on the recommendation of a Sunday New York Times book review as a great "summer read". Strong storyline, believeable characters, contemporary theme (Iraq, Wall Street), punchy yet believeable dialogue, well paced, and one terrific narrator in Sean Barrett! Kudos all around.

    "TOP NOTCH THRILLER"
    Would you listen to The Wreckage again? Why?

    ABSOLUTELY. I think Michael Robotham is one of our BEST mystery writers. Impossible for me to understand any reviews that were not outstanding....he is a master of unpredictable intrigue and endings. I literally had to force myself to take a break from this spellbinding read. After reading Suspect, narrated by Simon Prebble, I suspected it would be difficult to listen to another narrator....I was wrong, Sean Barrett was unbeatable. I'm looking forward to Robotham's 'LOST" as my next book....I can't get enough of him.

    "Mediocre"

    The publisher’s dust jacket blurb about “The Wreckage: A Thriller,” by Michael Robotham, was more thrilling than the book itself. The premise of the story was good enough, but the author’s technique of telling separate stories in London and Baghdad, which took way too long to coalesce, made the book mediocre at best. By the time Robotham got to the point, I had ceased to care. The reader was okay.

    "Wreckage is a Wreck"

    I've listened to 5 other Robotham's audiobook and they were fine but this was a wreck. Don't waste your time and money.
