The Narrator Ruined This

Would you try another book from Lisa Jackson and/or Natalie Ross?

NO

What do you think your next listen will be?

James Patterson

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Natalie Ross?

Santino Fontana he's great at embodying the nuances in female speech

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Anger because of the narrator.

Any additional comments?

The narrator is just absolutely pathetic. I don't get all the rave reviews because I could not concentrate on the story being told because the narrators voice was overly dramatic. It was like listening to bad acting. I thought her "male" voice was absolutely laughable and ridiculous. It was like when the wife tries to impersonate her husband over the phone because she's not an authorized person on the account. You would never believe it. This narrator steals so much from this story that I can't believe they went with her. I mean her voice is like a wet blanket. It is a horrible monotone that makes my ears bleed. I didn't finish this book. I just couldn't listen to it.

Usually like Jackson

This was so contrived and predictable. Lisa Jackson's books aren't literary genius, but they're usually captivating and don't require total suspension of disbelief. This one was phoned in.

Great story

First of all I'd like to respond to an earlier review that claimed this was a romance novel without any real story. I just want to say Lisa Jackson once again has written a great book, Natalie Ross did a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. If you've read the rest of this series you won't be disappointed.

It's a "paint-by-numbers" Romance - awful

What disappointed you about Never Die Alone?

It sounded like the author took a "write a romance" course and followed the class notes step by step.

What was most disappointing about Lisa Jackson’s story?

It kept repeating, repeating, and repeating the same paragraphs over and over and over again in each chapter. How many times can you take pages and pages of running away naked through the woods from the same mad man? Ooops, she escaped again and he's risen from "dead" AGAIN, and here we go AGAIN with the same "run, trip, fall, almost escape, get caught" scene.

How could the performance have been better?

The plot line of twins being captured and killed had some merit, but the author just filled in the rest of the details with romance and drivel.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Never Die Alone?

All of the "escape, run, trip, get captured ......" scenes.

Any additional comments?

Audible used to label romances as romances. I wish they'd go back to that practice so those of us who can't stand this kind of "writing" can save our credits.

Slow and repeated

I think I would have preferred the abridged version and read the hard copy so I could skim over all the repeated dialog. I really do not like this narrator and wish I had paid attention to who was narrating before purchasing

EXCELLENT USE OF A CREDIT or pay full price!

It has been a VERY long time since I heard a book that makes my heart almost beat out of my chest with anticipation as the suspenseful scenes unfold! I was extremely hesitant about getting this book since I don't read perverse graphic sex stuff which a lot of psychological thrillers are about, fortunately not this one (it does have nudity).

If you enjoy a intense psychological thriller, this author and narrator combo create a REALLY heart pounding story. It's best not to drive while listening to this book as the driver will forget what they are doing!

Waste of my credit and time

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

Not sure who would enjoy reading this book.

What was most disappointing about Lisa Jackson’s story?

The story is too dragged out. There is too much time spent on what a character is thinking/feeling, when we got the point ten minutes ago. The villain is nearly choked to death and then stabbed in the neck, but still manages to regain ALL of his strength over and over. And, how many times can the victims be recaptured and escape. The narration is boring, with no voice inflection.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Natalie Ross?

Unsure

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointed, because I always look forward to a good book, but this book was so poor, it angered me that I used a credit on it.

Frustrating Listen

Several times while listening to this book I just turned it off. Some of the characters were just to dense to make it believable.
It could have been good if the character behaviors were believable, but they weren't.

"Scraping Her Hair Back In A Pony Tail"

Honestly Ms. Jackson...Why can't you find a THESAURUS to Look up Synonyms for the word "Scraped". Did this character brush her hair with a Pork Chop and leave Grease in it? Is that why she Scraped her hair back? ugh...that word, to me, seems to keep getting used in the wrong format. This Author used this word at least 3 times before the 2 part began. She gets hung up on words. She cannot or will not change or mix them up. There, my rant is over. I've read every book she's written for now. Usage of this and a few others so often has grated on me, so I'm sorry about the rants. Also, What's Wrong With A Person Who's Name Is Misty? Not A Bad Name...

Returned for Refund

Couldn't finish this, had to return it. Can't stand these books were women are incompetent flakes. The girl over powers the bad guy but doesn't (1) kill him, (2) tie him up, or (3) incapacitate him by stomping the side of his knee or slicing his achilles tendon. Then she doesn't take the cell phone she knows he has or her clothes that she saw. OH PLEASE!
