THE HIDDEN MAN

Author:  David Ellis
Genre:  Legal Thriller,
Jason Kolarich Series #1
Published:  2009
Personal Rating:  3.5/5 (good)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Luke Daniels
Yearly Count:  35


Lawyer Jason Kolarich is hired by "Mr. Smith" to defend a childhood friend who is charged with murdering the man he believes kidnapped and murdered his sister when she was two-years-old.  

This was my first introduction to this series, and I hope to listen to more -- despite my dislike of the narrator.  I thought his voice was a bit robotic or maybe a step up from monotone, so I just tried to accept that that was Jason.  That helped, but it didn't solve the problem.  However, I don't have time to literally read this series, so if I want to move forward, I have to listen to them.  We'll see how it goes the next time around.

In regard to the plot, it was good.  My interest level was up, and I went along with Jason as he tried to sort things out.  In general, there were quite a few subplots causing me to lose a little bit of interest at times, but overall I thought it was a good storyline.  It was enough to entice me to put the second book on hold.

  1. Narrators make or break books for me. I'm not sure that I would be able to get past his voice!!

  2. Yeah, the narrator would probably ruin it for me too.

    1. Stacybuckeye ~ I received the second from the library, and it is the same narrator. EEK! I think I'll wait a bit before I listen to him again. I'm hoping he changed his tune. :)
