    "A little disappointing"

    A little disappointing. I love Linwood Barclay and have listened to and read everything he has written, so he is definitely one of my all time favorite authors. It's not a bad book, but this one falls a little short by his usual very high standards. Usually with a new Linwood Book/Audio, my life gets put on hold until I have got through the whole book, just wanting to know what is going to happen next. I really find myself getting pulled into the middle of the story.



    With this one, the plot didn't snowball and gather the usual momentum. I found myself having to keep replaying sections when I picked up listening to remind me of where I was in the story and what was happening. Some of the scenes were too long and drawn out and it took some listening and replaying to get past them and I found the ending a bit of a disappointment.



    The concept and idea is very good and there are parts that do really get going, but momentum is lost as that particular plot stops and your attention is turned to something else in the next chapter and everything slows down, and occasionally I got lost...that is a criticism I have of another well known thriller writer, but that isn't something I have attributed to Linwood Barclay before.



    The readers were fine, so no problems there and I wouldn't say don't get this book, especially for seasoned Linwood Barclay fans and those who like a good thriller. I don't feel I have wasted my time, it has been entertaining and enjoyable. However the problem for Mr Barclay is that he has set the bar si very high with his previous books and because of that my expectations are high, so I can't help feel disappointed when it doesn't quite hit the mark.

    "Disappointing"

    This was a most disappointing read, however I hung on as I had so enjoyed the author's previous books. It was slow, in fact it took ages to build up to anything like the usual excitement of his books. I would think twice about reading anything further by Linwood Barclay now. Pity.

    "Not at all disappointing"

    A bit slow to start but well worth the wait. Well written and nail-biting action - only criticism is that it ends in a rush!

    "fascinating the twists and turns this story takes."
    Would you listen to Trust Your Eyes again? Why?

    i would definately and will read this book again. thomas was so insistant that he had seen the head in the window, on his computer, and his brother must go and look for him. this is just the start of the mystery. could we in the future sit at home on our computer and see into other places in minute detail??? we nearly can already. the story is fast moving and full of twists with extra stories added to the plot. i wanted to carry on hearing about thomas,s future life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    thomas was my favorite because he was so obsessed and single minded.


    What does Ken Marks and Rick Holmes bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    i enjoy the experience of listening as it gives me a better picture in my mind when the narrators are good as ken and rick were.


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

    it made me laugh because thomas was so single minded but made me sad because of his autisum. your heart went out to his brother who tried so hard to cope with his father demise and understand what was going on with his brother.


    Any additional comments?

    a must read for all the twists and turns and unexpected happenings.

    "Disappointingly dull"

    I am a huge fan of Linwood Barclay and 'No Time for Goodbye' ranks amongst my all time favourite crime novels. The synopsis of this book didn't really appeal to me but as it's a Linwood Barclay I downloaded it anyway. Wish I hadn't wasted a credit on it though and I must admit I didn't even finish it. Barclay's books usually grip you from the start and take you on a real rollercoaster journey that puts everything else on hold for a few days. This did not grip or involve me in any way and regrettably there was no motivation to finish it.

    ""...tell me what you think it means...""

    Really enjoyed this read - great performances; the characterizations of brothers Ray and Thomas were superb. Loved the reference to the Grace Kelly line from Rear Window - "...tell me what you saw ,Thomas, and what you think it means...."

    "Much more than just a thriller!"

    Wow! What a satisfying read. I loved this book on so many levels. The detailed character portrayal of Thomas and his brother, Ray were intrinsic to the plot with 'savant' Thomas spending virtually every waking hour on Whirl360 (a program like Google Earth) where he can roam the street of the world memorising every detail without ever leaving his bedroom. It's only when he sees something in the window of a building on the program that the two brothers start a thrilling ride that nearly leads to their deaths. Trust your eyes is about compassion and caring but the plot is thrilling nonetheless. The narrator is perfect and I can't recommend this book more highly.
