Part suspense, part Whodunnit, part sensitive examination of the frailties that exist in families, this is a poetic and absorbing story that is written with skill and sensitivity. Where truth and secrets are buried and their sudden revelation throws family members reeling in all directions like debris from a plane crash.
Similar in scope, but very different in plot, to "The Husband's Secret", "Falling" is the better written novel, with more sympathetic characters and a less predictable climax.
An underated audio book that will keep you guessing...
Gripping read - which is let down by reader's poor pronunciation of Cymru and Welsh place names. This failing got in the way of the early part of the story.
Only a short review as I am only half way through this book. The thing that is driving me mad is the incredibly poor research carried out by the narrator. This book is set around South Wales, but the pronunciation of the River Tawe, Jet Cymru and other Welsh names are completely wrong. Why not choose a Welsh narrator!?!? Makes me cringe every time an example comes up. Lazy.
Good story though - shame about the above.
Usually I do not like time travel, but in this book it was very interestingly described and played out. The story gave me a lot to think about. I liked this book a lot.
Good lord this book was depressing. Please only listen to this if you are in an incredibly positive and happy place. Otherwise, hide the razors before hitting play. Very well performed by the reader which was the only good thing. It has a twist but you could see it coming from a different continent.
Cheer up a bit
Yes but I hid my razors after chapter one so thankfully I didn't do it.
I'd listen to the reader again and again but won't be reading any more from this author.
I enjoy reading but never find the time to pick up a book so Audible has been a great find! Addicted to good detective crime books!
A first for me from both the author and narrator and I must say a good find.
Narrator very easy to listen to and good story. Not my usual dark thriller but nonetheless still enjoyed it!
to read is one of life's greatest pleasures. to hear (audible) is becoming another! me? retired, female, traveller.
story, narration, plot, language
no, I don't think so....
I usually rate Emma Kavanagh - not this time.
Yes I would listen again as the Reader was amazing and held ones attention.
That it was told from so many different people within the story
Visiting the woman in the hospital.
A great book
