AudioFile Magazine Earphones Award winner, August 2015.
Sarah Lotz's extraordinary, unmissable follow-up to the book that made headlines around the world, The Three - perfect for fans of The Shining Girls, The Passage, and Lost.
Four days into a five-day singles cruise on the Gulf of Mexico, the ageing ship Beautiful Dreamer stops dead in the water. With no electricity and no cellular signals, the passengers and crew have no way to call for help. But everyone is certain that rescue teams will come looking for them soon. All they have to do is wait.
That is until the toilets stop working, and the food begins to run out. When the body of a woman is discovered in her cabin, the passengers start to panic. There's a murderer onboard the Beautiful Dreamer...and maybe something worse.

Praise for The Three:
"This high-concept thriller is a blast." (The Guardian)
"The Three is really wonderful...hard to put down and vastly entertaining." (Stephen King)
"Sarah Lotz is a natural born storyteller. Like the hand reaching up from the dark well, she'll drag you into her thrall. You'll come up gasping." (Lauren Beukes)
"Genuinely chilling... this is an unusual thriller superbly voiced." (AudioFile Magazine)
the story draws you in and goes at a nice pace, plenty of suspense but in my opinion falls apart at the end. its as if the author was unsure how to finish and went into bizarre mode. shame because the rest of the book was exciting
After reading The Three, I really wanted to find out more and so I went straight into Day Four. The problem I had was that The Three hit hard and just kept giving where Day Four does take a while to get into the story, but when it does, I think its more superior than The Three. Also, the narrator is SUPERB!! Keep with it! You'll be glad you did.
I would try another book by Sarah Lotz, but not the narrator
I didn't finish it because of the narration
mainly irritation because of the narrator...I found my mind wandering because the accents were so bad.Poor narration does a disservice to the book...I think I would have stuck with it if the narration was good. As it is I'm not even halfway and am giving up and returning it.
stories can be brought to life with good narration, or ruined by poor narration...this was the latter
I would listen again, there is definitely a sub plot which you may not fully realise on first listen
I read this immediately after her first book, and there really is no comparison, I much preferred this one.
I found her voice easy on the ear, and the phrasing was good.
Take a cruise for your health and travel to hell and back!!!!!!
A good story narrated very well. But.... The accents of some of the characters were dreadful and spoilt the production for me until they were largely dropped in the latter third of the story.
I had listened to the first book and also found that to be intriguing! It's a bit like being sucked into a bad film...you know it won't end well but just have to watch!
I'm now assuming that there will be another book which will finally explain what is going on??
If it does all come together it would probably make a good movie but I feel like this is all taking way too long but I'm hooked now so will probably end up with the next book lol!
The narrative was ok but some very dodgy accents!!
