Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
Not the best offering I have listened to, but it did have several redeeming qualities. Certainly the principal characters were very well developed. As that pertains to time well spent, most audiobook offerings are a good diversion and transit time occupier, and this offering is no exception.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Frankly, this story needed some editing and plot clarification. That said, I did get pulled along by the story, and it did resolve in a fascinating and creative way.
What about Corey M. Snow’s performance did you like?
The consistency and uniqueness of his characters , and his tone were outstanding. Very well done!
Did Human Resources inspire you to do anything?
Be thankful I work for an organization without an HR department !
Any additional comments?
This is a better than average offering, with some unique concepts and strongly written characters. Recommended.

I was given this book by the Author for free in return for an honest review through Audiobookblast dot com. OK, Legalese over. This book is not normally in my wheelhouse, being more of a horror/thriller hybrid, But I am so glad I expanded my horizons. This book was so good! The prologue starts with a guy who hooks up a relationship with a woman way out of his league. She's perfect. In fact, she's so perfect, she takes him on a vacation to a private resort off Fiji.Well, Whings go badly there, and we are left to wonder about his fate until later in the book. For the rest of the book, we follow the main protagonist, Lonnie , who is the IT guy at a small Menu cover company that is struggling. Lonnie's best friend at work is Hugh, who is somewhat autistic and very childlike, but very nice. The company brings in a consultant, Miranda, who calls off layoffs, and seems to be making lots of changes for the better, at least at first. She also seems to be inexplicably attracted to Hugh, and becomes very possessive. She and Lonnie clash, and it becomes a running theme of the book. Who is Miranda, and what is she up to. A Private investigator is hired by Lonnie to find out, only to be found dead in Lonnies driveway later. Is Miranda more than she seems, and if so, what are her plans for Hugh? Well, the only way to find out is to read this thrill packed book, and follow the twists and turns until the final, epic conclusion! Corey Snow's narration makes that a lot easier, since he does a great job bringing the characters to life, making sure the narration is never flat, giving life to each individual character. I would recommend this book to any fan of psychological thrillers.
