What did you like best about Just One Look? What did you like least?
The story seems to be good. I'm still listening. I really don't like to criticize the readers as I always think they are doing the best that they can. Sadly, I feel compelled to comment on this as the female narrator made the book unbearable. She added an unnecessary syllable at the end of every sentence. So every single syllable word became two. And I mean every word. It was and still is horrible as I want to finish the book but I must continue to listen to this woman. I have never had a book ruined before because of a reader and I'm really sorry to say, this is the first.
Don't the directors listen to the readers before publishing? It would seem to me that there is an audition as in any production first. Is she related to someone? It just doesn't make sense as any person can hear her strange reading pattern. Anyway, I will finish the book as I'm enjoying the storyline. But I will make sure that I never listen to a book from this reader again.
What didn’t you like about Angela Dawe and Luke Daniels ’s performance?
I've said it previously.

Is there anything you would change about this book?
Without a doubt I would change the female narrator.She absolutely ruined the book. It grated on my nerves so badly that I had to listen in short bursts.
Would you recommend Just One Look to your friends? Why or why not?
I love Harlan Coben's standalone books - he is one of the greatest out there in my opinion, but I would not recommend this audio book to anyone. The female narration absolutely ruined the audiobook. I would have to recommend that one read the book on this occasion and that is rare for me. I'm a diehard audiobook lover - just have never experienced a read this bad.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Angela Dawe and Luke Daniels ?
Anyone at all instead of Angela Dawe and I really didn't care for Luke Daniels either. My favorite is Dick Hill and there are lots of wonderful female narrators out there.
Was Just One Look worth the listening time?
Not with the female narration. Read the book.
Any additional comments?
Great story from Coben - please improve the narration on subsequent books.
