    " Pretty disappointing effort from Rosenfelt, whose Andy Carpenter series usually keeps me quite entertained. This is so convoluted and illogical, and there are plot holes big enough through which to drive a truck. It's also written in a very simplistic manner, almost as though it was written by a high school student. I got through it and at least I didn't feel as though I had wasted 4 hours of my life I'd never get back. It's a quick enough read, with enough twists and turns to keep the reader somewhat involved, but there are so many better books out there that deserve to be read before this one. "

    " Not as good as Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter books, but it was still entertaining. To be honest, the story wasn't particularly original (I was constantly reminded of the movie Flight Plan), but it still had me wanting to know what happened next. While listening to this book, I frequently found excuses to listen longer--taking the long way home, for example. It was the perfect summer read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Melanie Liechty | 2/2/2014

    " Quick read, kind of predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Theresa | 2/1/2014

    " Excellent twists, interesting theory, good read all around. "

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

    " David Rosenfelt is a wonderful writer whose stories always capture my attention. On Borrowed Time is a stand alone (shucks--no Andy Carpenter band friends!) that is a really odd and implausible plot. Regardless I enjoyed the book because of the writing and the fact that I solved the mystery about fifty pages in. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joy (Thoughts of Joy) | 1/29/2014

    " You can read my thoughts here. (2.75/5) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dorie | 1/28/2014

    " This book had such a bizarre concept that I knew it couldn't possibly live up to my expectations. To my surprise, it partially succeeded. As the story starts out, Richard Kilmer is a freelance journalist who is crazy about his girlfriend Jennifer. He takes her home to meet her parents, a diamond engagement ring ready in his pocket. After sneaking out to have sex in the family gazebo, he impulsively asks Jennifer to marry him and is overjoyed when she accepts. The next day while they are out driving a freak storm throws their car off the road. When Richard comes to, Jennifer is nowhere to be found. Not only that, no one in the small town remembers her (or Richard). Returning to Jennifer's parents' house he is confronted with her mother who doesn't remember him, and a house that looks nothing like it did earlier. Her daughter, the woman says, died when she was three and her husband committed suicide in the gazebo that [i]used[/i] to be in their back yard. Fearing he is losing his mind, Richard returns home to find all traces of Jennifer gone from their home, and none of his friends her either. The more Richard searches for answers about what happened to him and where Jennifer is, the more questions he finds. Alright, with a premise like this there's only so many ways this story could be resolved. Even with that, the plot was interesting and this was a real page-turner of a book. Although there was obviously a conspiracy, I didn't guess who was involved. And the people I thought were involved weren't. So although this story was a bit predictable, it was still told well and held a few surprises. Three and a half stars. "

    " I thought this book had jumped the shark to the twilight zone early on, but it came back to this dimension in the way of a twisted mystery thriller. Who can you trust if you can't trust your own memory? ... Or is it your memory in the first place? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alice | 1/16/2014

    " Lots of twists and turns. Lots of action. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Denise | 1/13/2014

    " I enjoyed this book. It was a fast paced mystery/thriller type. I had bought it for my kindle about this time last year, but I just got around to reading it. Once I started I couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hope Thompson | 12/15/2013

    " loved it, very suspenseful making it a quick read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Albert Belcher | 12/7/2013

    " I really loved this book. I was not expecting anything less with Rosenfelt. I found a new favorite author, and, I am really picky!!!! I, however did guess the main bad guy at least by 3/4. This is no reflection on Rosenfelt, however, sinc I do that about 3/4 to 1/2 of the time. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dad | 11/28/2013

    " A real page turner. Very interesting from start to finish with many surprises. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barbara Bryan | 9/29/2013

    " Kept my interest and gave a few chuckles, but overall too far fetched "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathy | 9/29/2013

    " Not as "thrilling" as I like but it was ok. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lori | 9/20/2013

    " very convoluted and confusing, not worth the time "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nadeen | 9/20/2013

    " on disc 3 / 6 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 8/17/2013

    " An action filled thriller filled with twists and turns. I really liked it. This was my first one of Rosenfelt's books but it probably won't be my last. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 6/30/2013

    " Good. Interesting story line. Prefer Andy Carpenter series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Herzog | 5/4/2013

    " This sure wasn't Andy Carpenter... but, was a big change of pace for Rosenfelt. It reminded me some of Shutter Island (which I didn't like). The premise of the book is almost more science fiction than mystery. The pacing of the book was good and I was never bored, but it just wasn't gripping. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greg | 5/2/2013

    " Not really my speed, but not. Ad as Reading For Work books go, I guess. Airport book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 2/11/2013

    " A good book for the popular fiction mystery category. I was stumped until the end. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 1/29/2013

    " Quick read! I read this book in 1/2 a day. With that said, it was fast paced and exciting with a few surprises thrown in. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rose | 1/12/2013

    " This is the kind of book that I like; it got me interested in the mystery right away. I thought the ending was satisfying. I like for a book to leave me feeling satisfied. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Edb | 11/8/2012

    " A book about mind control with many, many twists. Overall a very entertaining story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Plainjane26 | 10/26/2012

    " This is the first book that I've read by Rosenfelt. I definitely want to read his other stand-alone novels! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Julie | 2/16/2012

    " I could not put this down. I was able to forgive some holes in the plot because I was captivated. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marcie | 11/30/2011

    " I had too much fun reading this book to give it 3 stars. Not great literature but a fast paced and entertainly tale that gets better as you read it. Would make a long plane ride fly by. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 April | 6/29/2011

    " Decent. I couldn't figure out how he was going to be able to realistically conclude the story but he did. A little too sci-fi for my taste though when I want to read a thriller. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dona | 6/24/2011

    " This was rated somewhere between it was OK and I liked it. "

    " I thought this book had jumped the shark to the twilight zone early on, but it came back to this dimension in the way of a twisted mystery thriller. Who can you trust if you can't trust your own memory? ... Or is it your memory in the first place? "
