Never have the words "This audiobook contains mature themes, and listener discretion is advised." ever been more true. This was like an Australian Sex and the City. They talked about anything and everything. I would love to listen to this again just to see how many times the F bomb is dropped.
This was different. It's like we were hiding in the closet listening in on someone's life. The kissing sounds were just a wee bit over the top. Let's not do that the next time we record one of these books. 😁
This is a hard review to write. i didn't really care for this book(?) at all at first. There just wasn't any substance to it. But then when they are all in the desert, it started getting interesting. I had to see how things turned out. I ended up thinking it was good. It just wasn't mind blowing.
I do recommend it though for a quick entertaining listen. I listened through Audible Escape.

Narrators: they all were great. Perfect for their own roles.

Classic Stephen King! I loved it!
I listened to it in two days. And for a 19 hour book, that's a lot of listening!
But anyway, i loved this book. I highly recommend it. You will love it! Especially if you are already a fan of Mr. King.

Narrator: Santino Fontana did a magnificent job!!
Magnificent I say!!

This book had more twists and turns than an amusement park roller coaster!!
I'm going to have to listen to this one again. When a book is all twisty like this one is, you want to listen again because you now know things.....
I love an original storyline!! And this one was definitely original.
I HIGHLY recommend this one! But get ready for a wild ride!

Narrator: I loved her!!! I looked her up to see what other books she had narrated and will definitely be listening to more with her reading!

What in the heck did I just listen to!!!???? An absolutely awesome book, that's what!!! Wow! Have i ever read anything else like it? Maybe but this is rare goodness!!! The kind of book you will be thinking about for a good long while. The kind of book that you want to listen to all over again just so you can view it in a different way, knowing what you know. 😈😈😈

Get it!!! But pencil in a 10 hour block of time in your calendar because you aren't going to want to stop listening!

Narrator: David Pittu is PERFECT for this book. I love when i listen to a book and it's almost like they wrote it with this particular narrator in mind. 😉

WOW!!! What a book!!! There were so many lies and angles to this book that i found myself lost a couple of times. Nothing wrong with the book, i am just not super quick sometimes 😉
This was one big roller coaster ride that i enjoyed tremendously! Twists, turns, up and down! The "bad guy" or "bad girl" rather, was one evil person! Just listen to it. Because i highly recommend it!
One negative thing...... Was it really necessary to have the F-bomb in almost every single sentence uttered in this book?

Narrators: PERFECT!!! You could not have picked two more perfect narrators for this book! Great job, ladies!

The writing in this book at times was absolutely beautiful. Very descriptive in the most positive way.

Ok, now the story. This was very different. I'm not sure what i expected. I'm not sure the genre this is listed as but it has some sci-fi/dystopian vibes. It was very good though. The only thing, and why i only gave this 4*s. The ending. Is there going to be a sequel? Because if not, i am very unsatisfied. If so, i look forward to the next book. If I had known ahead of time that there will be another book, i would have given it 5*s. Really good book. I do recommend but just be prepared for it ending on a cliffhanger(?)

Narrators: They did a really good job. I don't recall any distinctive voices though.

***Just to address this to start off, i have not read/listened to the two previous books in this series. I was assured by the publishers on a Facebook post that this can be read as a standalone. I never once felt like i was missing out on something.

This book was so good!!! What a clever bad guy this was! Very smart so that makes this book even better. I am definitely going to read the other two in this series because I like Eddie Flynn and I'd like to know more of his story! I have a feeling by the way it ended, that another book will be coming up.
I highly recommend this one! Whether you have read the previous two or not!

Narrator: Adam Sims was PERFECT for this book!!!!!! Great job!!

WOW!!!! This book!!!
I love it when I find a mystery/thriller that has an original story line! This would be one of those. But while I'm listening to this marvelous book, i am also worried. Do books like this put ideas in people's heads?? This is scary!!
I highly recommend this book!! I have never read anything quite like it! Never! And I read and listen to MANY MANY thrillers!

Narrator: It really goes without saying that January LaVoy does an absolutely wonderful job narrating this book! Terrific job, Ms. LaVoy!!

Ok....This was not a bad book. This was not a great book. This was just an ok book. But......I see potential. There are a lot of people that seem to really love this series so I'm hopeful that it gets better. There were some roll your eyes cliches, but it ended up being a fairly good story. I'll be honest, i was VERY surprised at who the bad guy was. Very surprised. I am going to continue to book #2 with my fingers crossed that it gets better. I just have a feeling that's what i need to do.

Narrator: Since this is book #1 of a 7 book series that has the same narrator throughout, it's not going to do me a bit of good complaining about the narrator. She wasn't awful. Well....she was actually pretty good except for one VERY ANNOYING thing....She had a whiny lilt to her voice at the end of EVERY SINGLE SENTENCE. but other than that, she was great. Her different character voices were spot on.
