    I like listening to audiobooks, and I don’t understand why Harlan Coben stopped making them available? It seems that all his latest books are in text form only. I especially liked the Myron Bolitar Series in audio format read by Jonathan Marosz, who really brings the characters to life.

      Hi Samee – I’m not sure what you mean. I just checked and his two most recent books were released in audiobook format. His upcoming book The Match is available in audio format too.

    I ordered Play Dead first and was thoroughly impressed. I have always had a tendency of reading women authors, only because I found out that most of the men authors have a hard time writing in a woman’s perspective.
    As soon as I got reading Play Dead, I knew I was hooked. Excellent writer.

    As for The Woods, I am thoroughly enjoying this book also. This is written in the perspective of a male main character. That being said though, I did find myself getting confused a few times about halfway through this book as to who was male and which characters were female. Some of this I think may be due to the cool names that they have!
    Some of the reason for this may be due to me listening to this book instead of just reading directly.
    I am so appreciative of having these be voice enabled as I get severe migraines and so I do not have to try and read them myself because I can have it read to me. Thank you!
    YOU HAVE FOUND YOURSELF A PERMANENT FAN AND CONSTANT LISTENER IF YOUR FABULOUS BOOKS! Blessings, lbkingboyle@gmail.com p

    REALLY enjoying his stand alone books, which I hadn’t read until now……read the Myron Bolitor books a long time ago, they’re also good but I think the standalone books are actually better.
