YOU'RE NEXT

Author:  Gregg Hurwitz
Genre:  Thriller?, Standalone
Published:  2011
Personal Rating:  2.25/5
(not enjoyable +)
Format:  Audiobook
Yearly Count:  7


Mike Wingate was abandoned on a playground at the age of four; therefore, he was raised in foster care.  He had no memory or understanding of the reason why, but forges ahead with his life and becomes a loving and devoted husband and father.  Out of the blue, someone threatens Mike and his family.  Again, he doesn't understand the reason why.

I should not have spent 14 hours listening to this book!  The tiny bit I knew about it intrigued me, but ultimately it never captivated me by its plot or characters.  I considered giving up at Disk 3, but plodded on because I thought for sure I would end up liking it.  I would have been better off following my gut!  Even with Scott Brick as the narrator, who usually is a favorite of mine, annoyed me.  So, I'm chalking this one up to not good timing.  However, this is the first Hurwitz book I've read, so sad to say, I'm fairly certain I won't be picking up another one by him any time soon.

  3. I've heard good things about this one so it's nice to get a different perspective. I hate when I get to the end of a very long audio and feel like I've wasted my time.
