Where does Missing You rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Harlan Coben's books tend to follow a familiar formula but it's a good formula. I'd rate this book in the top 10% of audio thrillers I've heard.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Kat obviously. The whole story revolved around her.
Did the narration match the pace of the story?
The narration was very good generally apart from making many of the male characters sound like morons for some inexplicable reason.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. I would have were that possible. I ended up listening to it over about 3 days because of work commitments.
Any additional comments?
Great Story, Characters you cared about and heart pounding ending. The only drawback was the weird drawls some of the male characters were given.

I think this is my favourite Harlan Coben so far, I found myself glad I had a long drive so that I could listen uninterrupted. There were some gruesome bits that I didn't like, but happily for me not too many. The writer really jacked up the suspense and my heart was pounding in places and I had to make a conscious decision not to drive too fast!
The narrator's treatment of most of the male characters was weird though. They were generally portrayed as dumbass, deadbeat types, even when they weren't. There were some male characters that he got really well, so it's even stranger that he made the decision to go with those other portrayals in the way that he did. However, other than this he was a great reader.

Great Author. Great Story. Terrible narrator. Completely ruined it. I won't be able to listen to it again.
