This one took me by surprise. I read some of the reviews, and because they were so varied, I was hesitant to read it, but since I liked the sound of it I decided to give it a go. Well, I'm so glad I did because I ended up loving it!
Tom is in a rush and is texting while driving. Next thing he knows, while drifting out of his lane, he sees a car coming straight for him. With no chance to avoid collision, he braces for impact. Right before they crash though, he sees his daughter is in the other car!! He wakes up from the crash but something seems wrong. Everything looks frozen excaept for 2 people coming towards him. These 2 people tell him that they can rewind time to before the crash and save everyone, only thing is, in exchanges for saving the 4 lives, Tom has to kill 4 other people! Each month, one soul is due and if he doesn't pay, then the 4 lives that were saved will die!
While reading, the first thing that came to mid was, what would I do! Obviously I would do all I could to save my child, but could I actually murder someone by my own hand!! It's a hard decision but one Tom has to make! He knows that he will save his daughter but can he kill someone to do it? I actually really liked Toms character. He felt real in his emotions and thinking. He struggled with what had to be done! Initially he thought, how hard can it be to murder someone, people do it all the time, right? He soon finds out what's involved!!
The plot was really fast paced and quite unique! It's a thriller with a supernatural edge. It was nice to find this little gem!! Plus the action starts straight away and pretty much continues to whole way through!
Anyway, this was a fantastic read! I loved everything about it and am so happy I gave it a chance. Now, I will say that this is a book that defies disbelief. Go into it with your mind wide open, and you will love it!
Andrew Tell was great. He has a smooth, easy to listen to voice and kept my attention throughout. It's my first book narrated by him but I will definitely check out some more.

Would you consider the audio edition of One to Go to be better than the print version?
Great on audible, it was narrated very well.
What other book might you compare One to Go to and why?
None that I know of.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
There are multiple points in this book in which I was moved, especially the very beginning and the very end.
I will not give out any real details here, I encourage reading the book, definitely a good read.
Any additional comments?
Fast paced, sharp, keeps you guessing, and thoroughly enjoyable. Very well written.
Where does One to Go rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Definitely in my top 10. The pace of the story with great narration meant that I couldn't get enough!
What did you like best about this story?
The crime/thriller genre is full of a lot of books that are similar. The hero gets the bad guy having gone through a few twists and turns, usually a cop vs a killer. Mike Pace's One to Go is certainly not one of those books. Instead we see the crime/thriller genre brought together with a bit of the paranormal, and it's great! So I guess I'm saying the story overall feeling fresh, different and very entertaining.
What about Andrew Tell’s performance did you like?
The narration helped to keep me listening. It mixed well with the pace and kept the tempo moving. Andrew Tell has a voice that you can listen to easily which is essential for an audiobook.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
It made me think. As a parent what would I do to save my daughter and those close to her/me. Would I be prepared to kill or would I stop when I glimpsed their lives and children? In fact what would I do if everything was my fault to begin with?
Any additional comments?
If you enjoy Stephen King and Dean Koontz books, or even James Patterson, you will definitely enjoy this book.
