The Narration is awful; mumbling, whispering then verging on shouting; I never knew what volume to have the headphones at. I persevered because the story was good.
The plot/overall story.
One of the worst books it has been my misfortune to listen to! I doubt Patterson had any input writing it and the coauthor Maxine Paetro is responsible for this complete mess of a book. As if things couldn't get any worse, the narrator is absolutely painful to listen to as well!
I enjoyed the story of this book, but I'll be honest I had no idea who was talking, narrating or speaking. I got completely lost about 3rd of the way in and never recovered who the characters were or who was who. I didn't care about the characters and I was never clear who the protagonist was or who the characters where. I also seem to have missed the connection between the main plot and the subplot.. it's like two stories joined together for no real apparent reason. The two stories themselves are good and there is a good twist at the end that I didn't see coming. Perhaps I just missed something, but I still have no idea who all the cops were, who the journalists were and who I was listening to.
The narrator is good, although she pauses and goes so quiet sometimes that I couldn't always make out what she said!
So overall, it's average. Good story but confusing!
A good storyline, well narrated. I liked the characters and how they were portrayed. It's scary that this could be possible and is quite believable. A nice twist at the end!
Not a bad listen as the reader does an excellent job. I found the story rather slow and a bit predictable in all honesty but pleasant to listen to all the same.
Loved it though it took me some time to get used to a woman narrator. Found the epilogue ending a little rushed buy pleased they found the Night Walker - would have liked a bit more on "how" they found the Night Walker!
I am really enjoying this series and this book has a great story which is keeping me interested in completing the series.
I like Yuki Castillano. She is a smart confident young woman with a sense of humour and quirky ways.
In a few places she over dramatised but I liked her work.
Yuki mothers death.
really enjoy series!!
