I'm so glad to see some of these amazing teachings translated into audiobooks. With all of the names and lineage, many times It can become a big word soup. Hearing the pronunciations and having the luxury of being able to drive and listen to teachings at the same time is simply amazing. Learning about the teachers that brought these teachings to us is the first step in understanding how to tame our mind. What a wonderful book and a wonderful teacher! Thank you!

I was skeptical when I read some of the other reviews, however the narrator is absolutely incredible and the storyline is so intensely suspenseful that I actually had to pull over on the side of the road a couple of times just to catch my breath! The Author is so incredibly clever! She was always one step ahead of me when I was trying to figure out what I might do in the same situation. No cursing, very little violence, and no sex. It was quite refreshing to listen to a psychological thriller that I didn't have to press pause when someone else walked into the room. Absolutely wonderful and I cannot wait for her next book!

What would have made Just One Look better?

I have never given any product a bad review before but I couldn't get through more then 45 minutes before having to turn it off. I love Harlan Coben and it is not his fault that Audible chose this particular female narrator. She ended every sentence like it was a question. Siri from iPhone would have had better voice inflection... I really wish I could get my money back on this one :(

What do you think your next listen will be?

I love Harlan Coben so this is not reflection on his writing. He is a great storyteller.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Angela Dawe and Luke Daniels ?

Anyone but Angela. Maybe she has improved overtime?? Lord, I hope so!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I really don't know. I am sure it is a good story because Harlan never has disappointed me. I'll have to get the kindle version one day instead.

Any additional comments?

Any way I can get my money back?? I am an faithful Audible customer.
