    "Confusing"

    A very strange story line. I have always thoroughly loved Harlan Coben's books. This one, not so. Had the kind of ending I so dislike, leaving you wondering why you kept reading, too many unanswered questions. No completion to story. Would recommend people pass in this book.

    "Fun"

    I love this series and the narrator for them! Fun twist and I love Emma's character so much! And who couldn't love Spoon?

    "Reiteration of book one"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?


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

    not sure


    Any additional comments?

    Most of this book is reiterating book one. As you get further in this book it starts repeating bits and pieces of the beginning of the book.

    "Very enjoyable!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story had multiple sub plots all of which were interesting and added to the excitement. And there was lots of excitement.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Seconds Away?

    Too many to list. I could not stop listening.


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

    The voices were perfect! Brought the characters to life.


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

    Yes.

    "I want"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend people listening to this book, because it's exciting and fun.
    However, it doesn't feel "real", and compared to other books by Harlan, this falls short.


    Any additional comments?

    Something I don't like is all the "humble brag", that revolves around Mickey Bolitar.

    "Still loving this series!!"
    If you could sum up Seconds Away in three words, what would they be?

    Coben does not let me down in this next book of the Mickey Bolitar series! We get to know Ema and Spoon more in this book which is so enjoyable! The crime plot is much more simple in this book less twists and turns but I enjoyed that bc it seems more realistic after the craziness in the last book! Coben has be laugh out loud as usual for all his books. Mickey is so stinking likeable!! These are easy reads but only because they are extremely well written not bc they are YA. This series is fast paced each chapter keeps you enthralled and never bored!!

    ""Stop after 1""

    The first book in this series was "Shelter," and was a promising start to the series. This 2nd was a let down. The mystery and twists were still there, but the plot just felt far less believable. I'll end up reading the 3rd book to give the series another chance, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it goes better than this.

    Love this story! Some of his better work. I couldn't help being transported back to high school with this superb writing. Love the character spoon. Highly recommend this for any fan of this author.
