"Outstanding in every way. Hurwitz's previous books - great as they were - look like practice swings before this titanic blast." (Lee Child)
Good book once you get into it. The hero was a regular guy, under unusual circumstances - Nick grew on you after a while.
The first flashback almost made me stop. It was too long and right in the middle of the action. Really disrupted the flow and lost my interest.
Other than that great book - lots of intrigue and suspense.
First of all, let me say how much I hate the voice of this narrator. He has a high voice, and sounds like a 16-year old. And he runs his sentences together without a proper break. No talent at all at voices. I don't know how he got into audiobook narration, maybe he's related to a producer or something... this is a classic case of a bad narrator ruining a decent book.
The story is only decent. I loved The Crime Writer and The Program, both excellent. But this book seemed to be too similar to other thrillers I've read (e.g., Harlan Coben, etc). It just seemed formulaic, and it never grabbed my interest. It gave me the feeling that I'd read the same story somewhere before.
I will remain a Gregg Hurwitz fan, and will try to read all his books. I know he will write better books than this one. I just hope his future books aren't mutilated by the narrator as this one was.
This didn't mesh story and narrator for me. I kept getting distracted, going back then distracted again. It almost seemed like the book was a little too long. A young man going after the President (among other things) really taxed my imagination much less my sense of reason. Too little too late or too much something else.
I will of course continue to read Hurwitz but hopefully not along these lines.
Great characters, action and interesting tales. My only complaint is he needs to write more!
This was the second book from this author I listened to. I am in the process of listening to a third. Well written and with twists. But there is a consistency from book to book....plot to plot. Clever. Although each book has a new character, they sound the same and basically go through similar events throughout each book.
This book kept me on edge the whole time. In fact at one point I had to turn it off for a full day
As the tension was so intense. Loved the book.
I literally could not get through chapter 1. The narrator sounds like he should be reading children's books. I wish I'd listened to a sample before making the purchase.
It was a pretty interesting story so I kept hanging on.
For me, the voice just didn't match the character. Made it difficult to listen to and stay focused on the story.
I'm a stay at home mom in southeastern KY. I LOVE audio books....especially ANYTHING by Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb!
I haven't read the book...I'm an audio book junkie...so I really can't answer this question.
Nick, of course. He's literally led two completely different lives...actually, three. A clash of grief, responsibility and fear leads him to sacrifice what he loved most...a relationship with his own mother.
While I really enjoyed the book and the plot, I did find myself having to back up a chapter or two because with so many twists and characters coming in and out of the story, I often felt like I was missing something. But that is what I like about an action thriller. If it's very easy to follow, it's not very complex. Overall, I loved the story and the narration.
