Publisher's Summary

Mike Wingate had a rough childhood  —  he was abandoned at a playground at four years old and raised in foster care. No one ever came to claim him, and he has only a few, fragmented memories of his parents. Now, as an adult, Mike is finally living the life he had always wanted  —  he’s happily married to Annabel, the woman of his dreams; they have a precocious eight-year-old daughter, Kat; and his construction company is about to finish a “green” housing development that will secure a solid future for them all. Then the unimaginable happens: Something from Mike’s own past, a past he doesn’t even remember, comes back to visit terror upon him and his family. Menacing characters show up and begin threatening Mike, and when he reports them, the police seem more interested in Mike’s murky past than in investigating or protecting his young family. Now, with Mike, his wife, and their daughter suddenly under attack from all sides, Mike must turn to Shep, a truly dangerous man  —  and Mike’s only true friend  —  from their childhood days together in foster care. Together, the two of them will do whatever it takes to protect Mike’s family against the hidden men behind the terrifying warning “You’re Next!”

    "LOVED it!"

    This is a truly captivating story and fabulous narration! My Audible library is pretty extensive but this author/narrator combo is at the top!
    Why am I just hearing about Gregg Hurwitz? He's awesome - there's never a dull moment and the story is excellently written. 5 stars!

    "Outstanding and entertaining!"

    This is definitely worth reading/listening too. I could not turn it off, highly recommend it. It does have some gruesome creepy scenes..but they do add something to the story line.

    "Outstanding!!!!!"
    Would you listen to You're Next again? Why?

    I probably will listen to this book again, I was in such a rush to find out what happens next that I'm sure I missed some things.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of You're Next?

    I really liked when they finally got the safe open. I also liked when they pulled off the casinoheist and many others. it is such a good book and it really got my emotions stirred up. There were also some times when I just smiled.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Definetly Shep He just had a simple way about him that made you love him.


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

    I couldn't wait to get back to the book every time i put in down.


    Any additional comments?

    Scott Brick is my absolute favorite male narrator and he did not dissapoint. He kept me on the edge of my seat the whole book.

    "Not Bad"
    Any additional comments?

    Contrary to many other Audible listeners, I am not a fan of Scott Brick. His reading style and quavery voice annoy me, but I can deal with it if I really want to hear the book. This was a mediocre thriller, not bad, not the best I've read/listened. I found myself tuning out for long periods of time, then struggling to understand what happened later on the road. I did not feel the need to 'rewind' and listen to the missed parts. I'm left wondering if it's because Scott Brick was the narrator, or if the story just didn't keep me intrigued enough. I might pick this book up to read myself if I see it in the library, and give it another chance. In the meantime, I'll keep avoiding this narrator.

    Story
    "I think the title is appropriate for the content."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Umh, I think I would, well, maybe, well maybe not. I'm still grasping for a decision with this audiobook. Although I do mostly enjoy Scott Brick's narration's. Sometimes I feel it's either his reading or just what he has to read that seems to take sooooo long to get to the "meat and potatoes" of the story, I find myself "rewinding" through chapters, and saying to myself - "Self -What in the world is this book about" This would definitely be one of those - What????? I'm lost. There were so many characters, and back and forth, and will we ever get to the actual storyline. Whew, I'm tired just thinking about explaining it. Well, I'll just move on to my next audiobook...


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Interesting....finally - ok, I get it now


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Brick?

    Yes, I'm nervous though..


    Could you see You're Next being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yes, I think Tom Cruise and Charlize Theron would be a good collaboration.

    A very well-written suspense book, the narrator was great, and probably one of my favorite audible listens so far. Great character development and the pace of the story was perfect. An edge of your seat listen for sure.

    Story
    "I used to like Scott more"

    I remember liking Scott Brick more in other readings. It's odd, he did really well on the characterizations, but in the more narrative parts, he kept droning on with this weepy tone that detracted from the necessary or needed. I found myself relieved when he would go into character as the narrative voice really got painful.

    Now the book, the writing and mostly the story, kept me listening. It's a slow burn kind of plot. It does get better as it progresses. The reasons and motives at the end were not shocking, or thrilling, but interesting. You get very interested in the characters and their story. That is the core value here.

    The characters are almost laboriously developed, but I think a lot of the feeling of labor steamed more from the narration than other factors.

    Would I recommend this book as a worthwhile (read) listen? Sure. The writing is above average for sure. It's Scott that kinda' let me down this time, but mostly in the narrative. Characters "voices" were fine. Less weepy narrative would have made the book 4~5 stars.

    "A GREAT THRILLER/MYSTERY WRITER"
    What made the experience of listening to You're Next the most enjoyable?

    The prose, the story line, the fact that this writer does not telescope the plot/ending. An extremely good mystery/thriller that has me, now, a fan who will download all of Greg Hurwitz books. I must also mention the reader, Scott Brick, who is absolutely a perfectchoice.


    Any additional comments?

    After listening to many books, I have finally found a writer that is worthy! Great prose, incredible story line, that does not telescope the plot/ending. A thriller in the true sense of the word. Frankly, I wanted to go straight through to the end, however, as it is so very good, I also wanted to savour it, and am still listening. I just wanted to share this so that more listeners can enjoy a fine writer. I shall download the rest of his books, hopefully, they will all be unabridged. If not, could Audible make it so. Thank you Greg Hurwitz, you have restored my faith in the written word. An avid Los Angeles listener.
