Publisher's Summary

From the 11th storey of a Los Angeles high-rise, Nate looks out on the city - the traffic, the trees, and the beach beyond. He breathes deeply. And then he moves one foot off the ledge and into thin air. But before he can jump, gunshots ring out from within the building. A robbery is in progress. And Nate, with nothing to lose but the life he was about to give up, decides to intervene. What happens next plunges Nate into mortal danger…and reunites him with the family he hasn't known for years - a family he will do anything to protect.

Packed with twists and suspense, hurtling forward at relentless speed, The Survivor is a gripping, unforgettable story of sacrifice, redemption, and heroism.

Dark Story

I usually fly through Greg Hurwitz's novels. But this one - just really really dark and I'd have to say way too dark for me.... The lead character is a vet with a terminal diagnosis of ALS, and he sees his dead best friend/fellow soldier in disturbing visions. While the story was interesting and the lead character sympathetic, I found the story mentally difficult to read ... As is the author's way, the story is filled with thrills and chills and horrific bad guys, but I found myself picking up and putting down the story several times before finally finishing it. I guess I wasn't in the mood for a dark and depressing storyline - so I had to give it 3 stars because I literally forced myself to finish the book... That said, I will still wait feverishly for all new books by this author - I'm a huge fan, but this one just didn't work for me.

Jeff Harding was good with the delivery of the story

I listened to it twice in two weeks

Where does The Survivor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I enjoyed it as much as the far fetched but action packed Matthew Reilly books most of which I own.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot was complicated and the characters believable.

Which scene was your favorite?

The beginning in the bank

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

Nope

Any additional comments?

The narrator did a great job of differenciating between the characters. I was never at a loss as to who was who.

A really good plot

I really enjoyed most of this book it was just the rather graphic explanations of truly gruesome torture that got to me. The plot was excellent and an interesting take on the way someone who knows they have little time left deals with some of the violence sent his way. A good listen if you are not squeamish. Interesting characters and fairly well read.

Only just discovered this author, if the rest of his books are as good as this one I can't wait to read them.

Gripping.

This was a really great listen and I kept wanting to come back to it as soon as possible. It is nothing ground breaking nor is it unpredictable; but you do want to keep it going to the bitter end!

Enjoyed this a lot

Very exciting, believable characterization and pulls no punches (The fight/torture scenes are very violent and gory)! As always, Jeff Harding's narration is awesome - at times I forgot that there was only one narrator. Wanted to listen to this in one go if I could!

Annoying characteristics

I really struggled to get through this book. While it started out fairly well, it fell apart with the annoying reactions of some characters and what I found to be an unpleasant performance by the narrator.

I've enjoyed other Hurwitz books, ie the orphan series, but this one really turned me off.
