I really enjoyed this book. I couldnt wait to read the next two and did over a matter of days after Play Dead. The author pulled together her charact..Show More »er histories and transitions very smoothly. The narrator had a pleasant voice; well done on switching from line to line, character to character.
This book could have earned 3 stars. There is an excessive amount of internal dialogue, especially by Elise, that does little to further the story lin..Show More »e. Most of it, at the end, is irrelevant. The plot twists are predictable. I felt no "gasp" when all the pieces fell into place.
Yet there are three reasons why I gave this book 4 stars. First, I loved Natalie Ross' narration. Second, even though it was predictable, it had its suspense and there were parts when I couldn't stop listening. Lastly, although I'm upset with Elise and David's personal relationship, I enjoyed all the characters. No one is perfect and they all lend both humor and darkness to the feel of the book. (Except for the aunt!)
I would recommend as long as the reader doesn't expect this to become the next block buster thriller movie.
