AUDIOBOOK REVIEW

i found the audio version of this book difficult to finish. In fact I would have sent it back for a refund if Audible had not changed the.rules.

Although the narrator gave reasonably different voices to the different characters her delivery became monotonous because of her pitch which seemed to follow the same pattern of rise and fall for every sentence.

When you are listening to a book over 11 and a half hours, rather than reading it yourself in maybe three to four hours, things that you might have skipped over or not noticed can destroy the credibility of the story,

For example the bulk of the book takes place over 24-48 hours. In that time the main female character, Beth, is subjected to a huge amount of stress including prophetic dreams, attempting to stop a hijacking, attempts on her life, and fearing for the lives of her best friends and their young son. In the midst of all this she keeps getting distracted by bouts overwhelming lust. In about a minute she goes from realising that her closest friend has been kidnapped and may be dead to passionately kissing the main male character whom she has known for a couple of hours. This is not the only example of such unbelievable behaviour.

Profanity also becomes much more noticeable when you are listening. There are f-bombs galore in this book, growing in frequency as the story progresses and ultimately adding blasphemy to it. I realise that some will argue that such language is ‘realistic’ and (sadly) commonplace. It is also commonplace for people to be inarticulate and to lack a wide vocabulary. A book written in that style would be tedious if not unreadable.

I received a copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review. The story begins with Beth having a rather detailed dream that she tries to cast off as just a dream, until she has moments of déjà vu. She tells someone about what she’s seen…the man she sees die in her dream, drop dead gorgeous Zane Winters! He has love at first sight; she’s attracted but fights it with everything she’s got. Will they fall in love or has Beth pushed too far? Will they survive the danger that they have now encountered? This book had me riveted from the very beginning. It’s filled with action and the sexual tension throughout the book pretty much has you screaming at Beth to see what is right before her. A fantastic read, very hard to put down.… (mais)
