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!”

    "Great performance, mostly great characters"
    Where does You're Next rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The performance was spectacular. I really enjoyed that part. The relationship between Shep and Mike is great and one I could readily identify with. What put me off was the tree hugger agenda pushed earlier in the story and the snotty little brat girl (Cat). I would never let an 8 year old dictate business decisions and her act of being upset and way too adult really grated after a while.


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

    Shep


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The absolute loyalty between Shep and Mike.

    "I can`t wait to read this authors NEXT book!"
    What made the experience of listening to You're Next the most enjoyable?

    I was captivated from the start- This book was written in such a way as to have me intrigued and trying to guess from the start! But don`t waste energy trying , cause the whole suspense, reason will surprise you! And the narrator brought to life the emotions involved in this intricate book. It is worth choosing. Happy reading


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

    More than once I stayed in the car not wanting to stop listening, in parking areas, near grocery stores, the garage at home, etc. More than once crying, or my heart beating fast wanting to know what will happen next...I was sorry when I finished this book- It was saying goodbye to a good friend, till NEXT time.

    "Great listen!!!"

    This is the first book I've "read" from Greg Hurwitz, and I'm hooked!! Great plot, interesting characters, and super action. I read a lot of these type books, and this one surprised me with the plot twists and turns - that doesn't happen often. Will definitely be looking for more of his books.
    I've been a fan of Scott Brick's narration for years - he can do no wrong with me :-))

    "Too Drawn Out...."
    Where does You're Next rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's amount the top - it starts out well, and the suspense keeps you listening... But it becomes too much of a good thing.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Gregg Hurwitz? Why or why not?

    Yes. I will try another or two before making a decision to add him to my favorite authors. He did well holding the suspense and some of the characters were impossible not to like.


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

    Shep! Not sure I would've loved him as much in the text version, but the narrators performance of him was endearing!


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

    Until about 3/4 of the way through! Then it became more and more of a stretch - and more effort to listen. I was becoming tired of the cat & mouse and wanted it to get to the point.


    Any additional comments?

    It was a good premise. The original issue of the problem with the main characters building dilemma got lost for a long while. The revelation of why Mike was being sought out was a bit far fetched, but it is just a story and overall - a good one. Nice listen.

    "MESMERIZING"
    Where does You're Next rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    You're Next definitely makes my top 5 list.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott Brick is an awesome narrator. He read each character in a distinctly different voice. His portrayal of each character really brought the story to life. I was completely drawn into the story.


    Any additional comments?

    You're Next is a great listen especially with Scott Brick's narration. It is written in true suspense/thriller form. The story has a lot of twists and turns to keep the listener captivated. As in most thrillers, murder is expected, but you will never guess why. The climax of the story did not disappoint. I was so drawn in that I actually chose listening to this book over watching my regular TV shows.

    "I was yelling at the character in my car."
    If you could sum up You're Next in three words, what would they be?

    What a ride!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot made you yell at, cheer for and talk to the character as in, "Don't do it, do it, don't do it, why did you do that? My six hour drive sped along. I loved the book.


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

    The main character


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

    Yes, but mostly anticipate.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't miss out on this.

    "OMG NonStop Thrill Ride is RIGHT! Great Book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of You're Next to be better than the print version?

    Did not read print version - audio version is better than a great suspense movie though.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Non stop suspense and thrills. Like the characters - like the narrator - it's just a great book.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes - and it is just as good - he's a great narrator.


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

    Um - it made me - tense and on the "edge of my seat" in a good way.


    Any additional comments?

    I will certainly be looking for more books by this author.

    "Loved it!"
    Where does You're Next rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This was one of the best books I've read since joining audible this past summer.


    What other book might you compare You're Next to and why?

    It reminded me of a Harlan Coben book. It was fast paced with something always happening. It never stalled.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    .....maybe it reminded me of a Harlan Coben book because Scott Brick preformed it. He could read the phone book and make it sound exciting.


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

    Definitely made me wish I was on a long road trip and didn't have to stop listening.


    Any additional comments?

    It left me wanting more.

    "So stressful I had to stop it sometimes"
    Where does You're Next rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the best thrillers I have read in a long time. I had to stop it because it was too stressful to listen too. Amazing twists and turns and emotional roller coaster. I could not wait to listen to it but was a little hesitant to go back into this world. I hardly ever write reviews and I listen to about 3 books a month. This one, I felt I had to write about.
