Finally finished. I was down to the final hours on my hold. Just couldn‘t sink my teeth into this one. I think I‘m going to have to take a break from C.J. Box for a bit.

Started a new audio. This one is going a little slow but I think the narrator might have something to do with that.

tracey38 I've been enjoying audios more and more lately but the narrator can really make or break a book easily. 2w

This one was just ok for me. The ending seemed to drag on. I wasn‘t comfortable with the Lukas-Sylvie relationship and didn‘t understand the characters‘ reactions to it. I did like Amy. Her sensibility seemed to be the most realistic.

Started a new audiobook. A needed change of pace from my usual thriller/suspense. The story sounds compelling.

This one bothered me and I‘m not even sure why. The first part wore on but the second part really set me off. The delusion and obsession of the MC and the result of that was just really hard for me to listen to.

A little more than half way in and it‘s starting to get a little tedious. From the reviews I‘ve read it does pick up in the second half.

So, I‘m not even half way in and I‘m not sure I can take it anymore. Maybe it‘s the audio but...no, pretty sure it‘s just the story. The whole thing seems so ridiculous. The audio is pretty rough, too, though. Jess‘s POV narration I can take but Dr. Shields? Who even speaks like that?

mcipher OMG the Dr. Shields sections drove me CRAZY. I didn‘t do audio but I totally agree. 2mo
SanjanaGhosh OMG same here. Dr. Shields seemed to be a mind reader ...not the cool type, the extremely unrealistic type. It was kind of annoying 😂 2mo

Well, at least it‘s over. The first two in the series were pretty good but the last two - meh. Unrealistic police procedural action and mediocre dialogue aside, I think it was mostly the narration that brought me down.

This is one of my favorite books, so I had high hopes for the film adaptation. Sadly, I thought it was one of the worst adaptations I‘d ever seen. Now I‘m going to have to read this again to wipe all traces of the film from my mind.

litenthusiast I hate when that happens especially when it is a book you really love. 4mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego Agreed. That movie could of been amazing, but it was awful. 4mo
Clutterbucks_Queen I watched the film first but read the book twice after because of how good it was in comparison! If yhe film had half the detail in it that the book had then it would have been awesome! 4mo
Addison_Reads I wasn't a fan of this movie either, but the book is amazing. 💚 4mo

Do you ever get so into a book that you want to Google all the characters to find out more about them and then you realize they‘re not real? Helen Duff‘s narration is so good that I find myself wanting to do just that. Really enjoying this book.

MizDoniaBuding what app are you using for audiobooks 2mo
DHill @MizDoniaBuding I use the Libby app - audio and ebooks through my local library. I occasionally use Audible if there‘s a book I really want but isn‘t available through Libby. 2mo
