Not the best thriller I've read

Is there anything you would change about this book?

A lot less detail about the clothes everyone was wearing and the decor of their houses - it became tiresome after a while

Would you be willing to try another book from Jonathan Kellerman? Why or why not?

Yes, if I could be sure that there were not so many detailed descriptions of clothes and houses - quite distracting

Have you listened to any of Jeff Harding’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Excellent as always - I have listened to many books read by Jeff Harding and love the way he portrays male and female characters

Do you think Time Bomb needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I'd like to know if the relationship between Alex and the head teacher continued

Narrator

I really did not care for the naration of this story. I did not like the verbal portrayal of Milo, and found it 'grated' on my nerves.

Should have been a short story

The basic story was good... all the other "junk" thrown in was distracting, diluting and depleting to my patience. The narrator was horrendous, as was noted here by others. His pronounciations of some words were baffling. Pat Metheny (musician) pronounced Pat Methanee (as in methadone). There are several more, each painful and without logic.
