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!”

    "Loved the suspense. Great Narration."

    It started a little slow but when it got going, I loved the story and the way it exploded towards the end. The narrator did a fantastic job, especially with Shep's character. I find myself mimicking him now. A great listen !! I will look up another Gregg Hurwitz book now.

    "Entertaining but implausible!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is a recommended listen for sure, with the caveat that the listener needs to be prepared to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the ride. The author is a great storyteller, and this is an action-packed tale which unfolds at breakneck speed, captivating the listener.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick is one of my favorite narrators, bringing characters to life!

    "Good suspense, but not the best"

    A very vanilla story. Not the best suspense novel out there but not the worst. I listen to audiobooks when I run and while it got me through the run I didn't listen to it between runs and I had a tough time remembering it just now for this review.

    "OMG"

    There were parts where I would have covered my eyes if it were a movie or taken a break if it were a book. I'll for sure try another.

    Story
    "Exciting from start to finish"
    Where does You're Next rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Hurwitz has mastered the fast-paced thriller, though the end is a little weak in my opinion.


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

    Hurwitz has a great imagination; I couldn't predict where the story was going.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Brick puts just the right amount of emotion into the narrative, though he mispronounces some words. That's irritating to an English teacher.

    Story
    "Couldn't put it down."
    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Next to be better than the print version?

    Haven't read the print version.


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

    Revealing of the why Mike and his family were targeted. Shep was an excellent supporting character. I would love to read stories based on his life.


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

    Scott Brick is one of my favourite narrators.


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

    Don't under estimate a father's love.


    Any additional comments?

    I highly recommend this book.

    "Engrossing, yet predictable"
    Any additional comments?

    I love listening to Scott Brick; excellant narrator. This was also a very good book. I figured out why the lead character was being chased long before the end of the book, but I did not figure out all the twists and turns. Lots of character development and details. I really enjoyed this book. I have to say that at the end of it all, Shep was my favorite character.

    "Very suspenseful, kept you guessing the whole time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definetely recommend this book. It kept me on the edge of my seat and I couldn't put it down. The ending was a total surprise to me. Very entertaining!


    What did you like best about this story?

    As the reader, you only got to hear bits and pieces of the history of the main character so you really had no idea what was going to happen to him next.


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

    Shep. I think Scott Brick did a wonderful job on him.


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

    Yes

    "Good story, but too dragged out"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    We listened this in the car on a a long trip. If I would have had other books available, I probably would have switched to another. It is a good story, but so long and dragged out -- we found ourselves saying "come on already!"


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes, because the movie would cut out the long dragged out parts.
