I’ve noticed that I tend to lean towards mystery, thrillers and fantasy when it comes to audiobooks. I’m not 100% sure why I can’t just sit and read the books but I enjoy listening to them.
A Patient Man began pretty decent. I was intrigued to see how the story was going to unfold. I felt like in the beginning there was a lot of information being dumped to build up the story. I found myself not reaching to finish the audiobook; I could go days without listening to it because I felt like I didn’t really need to know what was going on.
Towards the beginning, I had predictions about where the story was going. Unfortunately all my predictions came true, I wanted something that didn’t turn into a classic cliché that I had seen in the movies, on TV shows. I wanted something completely different. I thought the author had good ideas, it could’ve been an original story with the way he had initially set things up but he then went to the straight way and it ended up being pretty cliché.
I was pretty happy with how the story was wrapped up. At first, I was thinking this was going to be a cliffhanger type of story but that didn’t turn out to be the case. He really did tie up lose ends and left everything answered and I really liked that.
The narrator was really good. I felt like his voice added to the story were some areas where lacking. I would listen to more books narrated by him.
I received the audiobook in exchange for a fair review.
