Patterson sets the bar high for audios everywhere . ~ Sheila
Over this past year I have had the opportunity to listen to some wonderful audios. I have really found a liking not only for James Patterson’s books, but for the very impressive readers that take on the character roles on his audios. This one, Run For Your Life, took my experience of audio to a whole new level.
In this read, Detective Mike Bennett finds himself in the middle of a case with bizarre random killings happening with increased frequency throughout New York. As Mike tries to put the clues together while putting in long hours on the job, he finds no rest at home as his ten (yes ten) kids all under the age of 12 have the flu. Told with fascinating scenes that take you from fear to laughter ( wait until the family cat scene!) in such a pace that you feel that you are trapped inside a fun house that you are not entirely sure you want out of.
With Dallas Roberts and Bobby Cannavale alternating the viewpoints of Detective Mike and of our killer…. this was an extreme audio that kept me on my toes. With the sound of gunshots bringing the read to life I was captivated from the start. When chapter 41 started, the readers voice was so intense and creepy my skin tingled with chills and anticipation.
By the time I had made it to the 5th CD, the audio had left my car and entered my home as I could no longer wait to hear what would happen next.
Highly recommended – if you have not tried audio before, this is a great place to start. If you have not read Patterson ever or even lately, I suggest you take a look at what this incredible author is doing. He is quickly making his way to the top of my favorite authors list.
