Publisher's Summary

Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat; and his construction company is about to finish a “green” housing development that will secure a solid future for them all. Then the unimaginable happens: Something from Mike’s own past, a past he doesn’t even remember, comes back to visit terror upon him and his family. Menacing characters show up and begin threatening Mike, and when he reports them, the police seem more interested in Mike’s murky past than in investigating or protecting his young family. Now, with Mike, his wife, and their daughter suddenly under attack from all sides, Mike must turn to Shep, a truly dangerous man  —  and Mike’s only true friend  —  from their childhood days together in foster care. Together, the two of them will do whatever it takes to protect Mike’s family against the hidden men behind the terrifying warning “You’re Next!”

    "Slow start but worth the ride."
    Where does You're Next rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It would be in the top 5.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked Kat. I have a sister about that age so I could relate to her actions. She was really grown up and mature for her age.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Mike


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he finally learned why he was being targeted.


    Any additional comments?

    Ok, I won't lie I almost didn't make it through this book. The first couple of chapters just drag and I couldn't get myself into it. While driving one night I finally got to the part where it started picking up speed and it just quickly escalates from there. You can't put it down because you are dying to know about his past and why people are after him. There are a couple of parts that are a little slow but it just helps to put the storyline together. The narrator does a great job and really makes the book come to life. If I had to sum everthing up I would say this book is like a train going up a steep hill and once it reaches the top it just takes off steam from there. Give this one a chance.

    "Loved this book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Next to be better than the print version?

    I don't know becuase I haven't read the print version.


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

    The plot has some very interesting turns. It made me want to keep listening even when I should have been doing other things!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I can't say because that would spoil the book for others.


    Any additional comments?

    Get this audiobook. You won't be disappointed!

    Story
    "Written for telling"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I truly enjoyed this book. The narrator brought it to life for me. I read reviews on other books about how the narrator distracted from their stories. This book is quite the opposite. I can not imagine this book without hearing the narrator.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The story was ok and in some places predictable and in others it felt like it dragged. Don't get me wrong, it was a good story with great characters but it suffers from what most other books suffer from, how to give enough backstory while keeping you interested. This one had parts that felt slow to me.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    The narrator made this book great. I am looking for other books narrated by Scott Brick!

    "Decent whodunit"

    I find that, as my mind wanders, I often need to re-listen to parts of audiobooks to get what's happening. But this story kept me interested and involved. It's an easy listen. Not the most original story or with the most compelling characters, but decent enough.

    "BEST book I've listened to in a LONG time!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Next to be better than the print version?

    Actually, I think with this book I would. Being able to hear Shep speak was probably better than what he'd have sounded like in my head if I'd read the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You're Next?

    I think every second of it was memorable. It is a very fast-paced book and if I'd have had the time, I would have listened to it all at once. It, for me, was one of those you just don't want to put down.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    It took me just a few minutes to get used to his portrayal of the female character(s). (I'm not a fan of men trying to sound like females. Most of the time it just doesn't work, in my opinion.) But after I got used to him, I enjoyed everything about his performance.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    How much and what all Mike did to protect his little girl and how patient he was with her.


    Any additional comments?

    Get this book! I don't think you'll be disappointed. I've already recommended it to a lot of my friends, and can't wait to pick out my next Hurwitz book!

    "No, thank you"

    Scott Brick is a wonderful narrator, but even his skills couldn't entice me to finish this book. I thought it was boring, predictable writing, it didn't capture my interest in the slightest.

    I'm glad that other people seem to be enjoying it. It's just not at all my cup of tea.
