Review 1: Shelter audiobook by Michael

Got it by mistake!

Where does Shelter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I have been a huge Coben fan for years. I bought this on that basis, but almost sent it back to audible when I realized in the first two chapters that it was for teens. I kept saying I was going to shut it off, but before I knew it I was hooked and completed the book in a few days! Coben is BACK! Great stuff, looking forward to reading the next one in the series. I really like the character Spoon.

Review 2: Shelter audiobook by Tracy P.

“Shelter: A Mickey Bolitar Novel- IS for EVERYONE!

Where does Shelter rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
Shelter ranks in the top five among all audiobooks I’ve listened to so far.

What other book might you compare Shelter to and why?
I would compare Shelter to Variant, and the Maze Runner Series. Both of the above series had primo narration as well, and are seemingly directed towards the teenager. Yet, all were just as exciting and riveting as any “adult’ book I’ve listened to.

Have you listened to any of Nick Podehl’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes. He just has fantastic use of his voice and nails all his characters. I’m never thinking it’s him doing several characters. They ALL take on a unique life of their own.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
A thriller based on a boy coming of age, who will go to any length to protect the ones he loves!

Any additional comments?
I compare Nick Podehl to Holter Graham, who happens to be my one of my all time favorite male narrators’, and Nick is just as talented and multi-dimensional in his performances.

Review 3: Shelter audiobook by Wayne

What is a 70 year old man doing reading..

a book for young teens? I have 5 grandchildren in the young teen age group; and I suppose I’m in my second childhood. So I listen to the Audible versions while they read the same books. With Shelter Harlan Coben demonstrates his talent for the genre is as great as John Green. The book is excellent! The character development with Mickey, Ema and Spoon is superb. I recommend this book without reservation to all lovers of fiction regardless of age.
