Listener Opinions

    " This would have been a 3 except for Dick Hill reading the audiobook. Especially the upper midwest accent for Sam Purdy. Maybe my attention lagged at the end, but I couldn't make sense of how the killings were carried out. Now that I write this, should have been a 3. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eileen Dilbeck | 2/12/2014

    " Dr. Alan Gregory is treating a woman who accuses her husband of murdering several women. Now Alan has to help police capture him and he is now missing. "

    " Excellent mystery. Psychologist has patient tell him her husband is a murderer. Nothing is as it seems. "

    " I really enjoy Stephen White's psychological thrillers--though this particular book wasn't so much a thriller as some of his others have been. He also usually starts out slow, building the plot, and then has a fast, startling ending, but not so much this time. It seemed that White was trying out some new writing techniques, perhaps to shake up his normal pattern. He switched between two points of view--the main character, Dr. Alan Gregory, and his best friend, detective Sam Purdy. We basically had two stories side by side with each point of view. First we have Alan Gregory's concerns both with an exacerbation of his wife's multiple sclerosis and a potentially disastrous problem with his clinical psychology practice. Then we have Sam Purdy dealing with a heart attack, self-esteem issues, and marital problems. It is almost as if the attempt to catch a serial murderer is peripheral to the real issues of the book. I also figured out the mystery angle without too much trouble this time; usually White's plots are more convoluted. Perhaps he was spending more of his creative energies on the personal issues of Alan and Sam. There were more clinical psychology aspects in this book, which I have always been intrigued with--delving into psychology, the relationship of truth and lies, the lies we keep from each other and ourselves. And there was a lot of discussion about marriage and love and what makes it work. White really does know how to create a complex, believable character. Blinded is a better book than many on the market but not his best and not really a psychological suspense thriller this time. Oh, the story was set at Thanksgiving time, and they talked about Thanksgiving feasts, deep frying turkeys, and cooking a turduken. I was tickled since I read this novel during the Thanksgiving holiday and those cooking treats were discussed in our family conversations. "

    " Several seemingly unrelated threads to this story do not come together until the very end. I'm usually good at figuring out "whodunit", but could not do so with this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jodi | 1/29/2014

    " While I enjoyed this book, I thought it was a little too easy to figure out what was happening. I also didn't feel that Alan or Sam were really in character. Alan has several patients that are causing more than the usual headaches. One, a former patient just returned to Boulder, wants Alan's help in bringing her husband to justice for the murder of the women he had had affairs with. Several others had revealed intimate secrets to Alan that suddenly found their way to the press or the cops. Meanwhile, Sam has had a heart attack and found that it isn't just his heart under attack but his whole life. It's more deeply psychological than some of the other books but in other ways it's more surface. Good, but not as mesmerizing as the last few. On the other hand, the last few books have all tried different narrative styles which has allowed White to bring more three dimensionality to characters. That's always a good thing. "

    " This book was loaned by a friend. I wasn't expecting much, but I actually enjoyed it quite a bit. A psychologist receives a call from a patient he'd seen many years before, and she confides in him that she believes her husband is responsible for the deaths of as many as 5 women - one of them her close friend. I was so into this book that I even read it while my boyfriend was TV. Good stuff. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marsha | 1/20/2014

    " Another in the Alan Gregory series. Interestingly though, books in this series use different narrative formats; sometimes Gregory is at the center, sometimes not. But White is always compulsively readable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/20/2014

    " Fun to read, good suspense. Looks are usually deceiving. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kitty | 1/9/2014

    " When a patient tells the psychologist her husband is a serial killer, just what is he allowed to reveal? His patient won't let him tell everything and his ethics are definitely tried. I really liked this. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol | 12/27/2013

    " This really should be rated 3 1/2. It's kind of a suspense story, but not scary. Will definitely read more by the same author. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 12/19/2013

    " I really like the continuing character of Alan Gregory. Keeps me reading Stephen Whites books. "

    " Not as good as the previous books in this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Janette | 2/10/2012

    " good pace all the way through characters you can connect with have read a few of his books just keep getting better "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jill Bell | 1/19/2012

    " Slow, slow read . . . couldn't really get into it, but I will not have a book beat me. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bob M. | 11/27/2011

    " I gotta stop reading this guy. I'm not one who needs non-stop action or lurid details. But I DO like suspense! And I never get any from this guy! Alan Gregory is just too talky & cerebral for a so-called 'thriller'. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate | 11/4/2011

    " Another great by Stephen White... although slightly predictable, which is disappointing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carla | 6/24/2011

    " The characters are unique and endearing. The plot was captivating but the twist could have been better played. If you like a good murder mystery this would be a good pick. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Zach M | 6/21/2011

    " I read about one hundred pages of this book and i had no idea what was going on. There were a lot of things going on at one time. The book is supposed to be about murder and mystery but from what i read that wasnt what was going on. I didnt like this book but maybe someone else will. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jake | 5/6/2011

    " Audio Book. I hate abridged books. This was a horrible abridgement. The story may or may not have been good but too much was left out and then mentioned later. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elizabeth | 2/26/2011

    " Damning with faint praise--predictable enough, but with sympathetic characters, interesting observations on living with MS, being a psychologist, married life, life in general, light sarcastic humor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenna | 11/3/2010

    " The ending wasn't that surprising. I think figuring out the "who" and the "why" is pretty simple. But even though I knew what was going on... I still really enjoyed reading this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy | 8/31/2010

    " An exciting and clever story. A good plot that had me fooled until near the end! "

    " Predictable follow-through in the plot, but I really enjoyed White's writing style and will be definitely reading more by him in the future. "
