Didn't keep me awake....

What did you like best about The Sleep Police? What did you like least?

I kind of liked the plot, but it wasn't really taken anywhere. The writing was passable but not fantastic. I didn't think the final scene between Frank & Dr Pope would ever end. It went on far too long and on the other hand he plot development lacked and comprised fragmented bits which for me never really came together that well.

If you’ve listened to books by Jay Bonansinga before, how does this one compare?

I doubt if I will invest in any more of his writings, unless I really become desperate.

What does Paul Heitsch bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Paul Heitch did an admirable job and possibly improved this book's readability overall.

Could you see The Sleep Police being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Theo James looks just perfect for the role of Frank, while Donald Sutherland would make an excellent Dr Pope.

Any additional comments?

If your looking for an average suspense novel that has some good and some ordinary moments then this is for you.

Loved It!

This story is brilliant from beginning to end. Author Jay Bonansinga has written a wonderful story, filled with mystery, suspense, danger, intrigue, and so much more. It had me guessing till the very end. I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire audio. I couldn't have stopped the story if I wanted to.

This wasn't the first audiobook I've listened to by narrator Paul Heitsch but I think this might be his newest story to date. I have noticed that he has improved a great deal since The Gates of Eden. His narrating skills improve with every audio he does. He does an exceptional job and his performance seem to get more enjoyable. His performance of Frank is superb, simply flawless. I think the author picked an amazing narrator when he chose Paul. I love when a narrator can connect me to the characters. Paul does an excellent job with distinguishing the characters and their accents. He brought the story to life and I find that unique for any narrator to be able to do.

The entire audiobook was an amazing rollercoaster ride. This is my first story I've listened to or read by author Jay Bonansinga . I'm extremely happy that I received this audio as a gift. The story was written to perfection. I loved the plot, the storyline, and all the amazing twists, and where this story took me. I highly recommend The Sleep Police. A great story, with a brilliant performer Paul Heitsch so you can't go wrong with this purchase. I know you'll love it as much as I have.
