Publisher's Summary

Kate Bishop is in a world of trouble. In the wake of several inexplicable and brutal murders, Kate is thrust into a police inquiry that reveals shocking family secrets. Suddenly exposed to a shadowy network of global evil, her life takes a dramatic turn with the arrival of Jack Raines, an author with a mysterious past who says he has the answers to her questions. What's more, he suggests that Kate herself might be the solution.

But hot on their heels are a force of superpredators, vicious and bloodthirsty killers who will stop at nothing until Kate and Jack are eliminated. Like Jack, they've realized just how special Kate is, and now she's marked for death.

An explosive mix of action and suspense, Nest is a landmark new novel from worldwide best-selling author Terry Goodkind and a complete reinvention of the paranormal thriller. Travel with Goodkind on a dangerous journey to the back alleys of the darknet, to the darkest corners of our minds, and to the very origins of what it is to be human, a place few have ventured to and fewer still have survived.

    "Terrible"

    This was the worst book I've ever read to the end. The story was nonsense, repetitive, with. needless technical passages (you don't have to describe how to use the internet, we know).

    The narration was also painful. She would use the same voice for all the "bad guy" characters, obviously had no idea what some of the accents were supposed to sound like, and pronounced some words incorrectly.

    I really wanted to like this book, as I've read all Goodkind's others, but it was really terrible.

    "Could someone get to the point please!"
    Would you try another book from Terry Goodkind and/or Elisabeth Rodgers?

    Not sure.


    What was most disappointing about Terry Goodkind’s story?

    Too much of the content is repeated over and over and seems like every conversation throughout this book goes round and round and round and round until finally after a forever someone finally gets to the point. Then that point is repeated at least three times before the conversation moves on. One of the rare times I will not finish listening to an audiobook.


    Any additional comments?

    Although pretty dark subject, the book was a bit on the juvenile side.

    "Awful"

    Such a bad book. The characters emotions are completely confused from scene to scene, and the ending is remarkably predictable.

    "Nest: A Terrible Dialogue"
    Would you try another book from Terry Goodkind and/or Elisabeth Rodgers?

    Since Terry Goodkind typically writes in a different genre, I'd probably try out one of his other books since I've heard they might be okay, and yes Elisabeth Rodgers did a fine job as a narrator, an excellent job in fact, I just can't stand how this book was written.


    Has Nest turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I've read/listened to other books in this genre that are quite interesting.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Well, there are like 3 scenes in the book, all of which are 2-4 hour dialogues between two characters explaining how the world is a terrible place and becoming more infested with evil and bad guys...except studies show that crime is at an all time low unless you are speaking about very specific areas of the world. Good grief.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Nest?

    Let me count the ways...


    Any additional comments?

    This book is just too black and white for my taste. Sometimes black and white works for sci-fi or fantasy, but when you are talking about the present day, it's just hard to swallow. He writes as if everyone hates the police, crime is on the rise, and you are either evil or not. Also, apparently you can't explain to the police that some guy was trying to murder you so in self defense you attacked and they died. Nope, they wouldn't understand that at all. You'd get caught up too long in the system, more people are coming after you. The majority of the book is two characters at any given time discussing the world becoming more infested with evil. Hardly anything happens at any given moment.

    This book just felt like Terry Goodkind ranting about how the world is falling apart, and it definitely did not resonate with me. I couldn't finish it. I just couldn't it was too poorly written for me deal with.

    "Empty story"

    I have read most books by the author and I usually love the way he describes people, feelings and motivations. In this story I do not believe in the people. I am constantly thinking that the author did not care when writing the story.

    Story
    "Goodkind had forgotten how to show rather than tell"

    The idea behind the book is interesting. I think the book was well conceived, but poorly executed. The are several scenes which span chapters and are simply information dumps where the side characters deliver all of the plot information to the lead character. The action scenes read well, but they are too few and to far between.

    "Thou Doth Reapeat thyself too much"
    Would you try another book from Terry Goodkind and/or Elisabeth Rodgers?

    Elisabeth Rodgers is cool.
    However this book may have been written by a parrot.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Terry Goodkind? Why or why not?

    No, no, and again no. Mr. Goodkind is consistent however when I say consistent I mean repetitive I could literally sum of this disgusting book in about 1 chapter. And too top it off I don't like books where people get there eye balls dug out of their skull or where people gnaw off fingers ewwwwwwww.


    What three words best describe Elisabeth Rodgers’s performance?

    Too the point.


    Was Nest worth the listening time?

    Listen to the first 15 min and you heard it all so errrm no.


    Any additional comments?

    I really knew I shouldn't get this book but I thought what the hay look at all the positive reviews I thought wrong👀

    "THIS IS A BOOK THAT YOU MUST...MUST...MUST HEAR!"
    What made the experience of listening to Nest the most enjoyable?

    I could not put NEST down...not even for a second. I listened to it at work, at play, in a bar, in the bathroom, while eating, and every other moment of the day. It drew me in
    from the first page to the last. The characters were real, and the story was real. One could call it fiction, non-fiction...I DON'T CARE. It not only scared the crap out of me but made me aware of the unbelievable point that no one on earth is safe. TERRY GOODKIND is not good but a GREAT AUTHOR. STOP RIGHT NOW AND DOWNLOAD IT. I could not stop listening!!!


    What other book might you compare Nest to and why?

    So far I haven't found one!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Every part of this book was GREAT!


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    THE FUTURE IS HERE NOW

    Story
    "Do You See Evil?"

    A fantastic thriller that grabs your attention from page 1 and keeps it, ramping up the tension and anxiety... At first you're not sure if the devil is real, or a delusion, or maybe metaphor?? All of the above and then some;). Some social context weaves in via surveillance, cyber crime/terrorism, identity theft, etc... Really does put a unique twist on the idea of profiling and eye of the beholder... Great pace, but it's not an action filled suspense story, but rather psychological w/ punctuating events that keep you turning pages... I appreciated the mood, which felt somber, and almost a little rainy... The central idea is interesting and the evolutionary theory is fascinating... There's some philosophizing, but it's barely noticeable, and anchors the plot well... Some real nice turnarounds and gotchas throughout, some surprising, some not, but all vividly done... A pretty clear examination of how human cruelty/ depravity permeates and percolates, and often in the most visceral of ways... Characters, major and minor, are natural and easy to invest in, even when on the pages for a short period... The narration was better than average, and doesn't detract or distract... The door was left wide open for a followup, and I sincerely hope that's the case... This is definitely different Goodkind, but paradoxically you can see the fingerprints similar to those in his fantasy works... If you're a fan you'll likely enjoy...
