Publisher's Summary

New name. New family. Shiny. New. Me.

Annie's mother is a serial killer. The only way Annie can make it stop is to hand her in to the police. But out of sight is not out of mind. The secrets of her past won't let her sleep, even with a new family and name - Milly. A fresh start. Now surely she can be whomever she wants to be. But Milly's mother is a serial killer. And blood is thicker than water....

She is, after all, her mother's daughter.

    "What a delight - what a surprise"

    When I started listening to Ali Land's Good me Bad me, I thought I had made a big mistake in buying the book. I found Hannah Murray's soft monotone voice infuriating and off-putting. How wrong I was - 'never judge a book by its cover' - excuse the near pun.

    Hannah Murray's reading of this engrossing and must listen too story was perfect.

    So, my only complaint is that it is 4.30am and I only wish I had started listening earlier yesterday so that I could at least have had a decent night's sleep. I'm knackered 😴

    "Listened in one day"

    Loved this book. Finished it in one day. Narration is monotone but I felt it really gave the book a dark atmosphere.

    Story
    "Absolutely brilliant"
    What did you like most about Good Me Bad Me?

    This was a very clever book. Very different to anything I had listened to before. It was very suspensful and dramatic. I loved it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved not knowing what Annie/Millie was going to do next. It was quite subtle so it was hard to guess.


    Have you listened to any of Hannah Murray’s other performances? How does this one compare?

    No I haven't. The monotone voice she does in this book almost put me off but don't let it. It is kind of needed for the story she is telling and would have been weird if Millie's voice had been all chirpy and cheerful.


    Any additional comments?

    I just loved this book. I could not stop listening and ended up staying up late to finish it. Highly recommended.

    "Download this book NOW"

    I am. It sure what the equivalent of a page turner is in the audio book world but this book is that. My poor dog has walked miles in the last few days as I could not bare to stop listening to this fascinating, gripping, emotional tale.
    Hannah Murray is the only person I could imagine telling this tale. The only sad thing is that I have just listened to the best book of 2017 & it isn't even the end of Jan.

    Story
    "Haunting. Horrifying. Utterly brilliant."

    If you like thrillers, you will be hard-pressed to find better than this. The narrator does a brilliant job, and I wish I could give more than 5 stars for it. Even if you've read the print version, I would recommend listening to this, it adds so much more to it.
    Just, please, before you download, understand that the narrator is portraying the character of a deeply disturbed young girl, and that is the reason for the monotone delivery. Reviewers saying they couldn't listen to it and hated it because of the narrator are completely missing the point.

    Story
    "Narrator KILLED this for me"

    Within five minutes I was wondering whether I'd be able to listen to the end of the chapter; pathetic, feelingless monotone. I understand that this can be done for effect - the narrator is numbed by her horrific early experiences - but, for the love of mercy, don't inflict it on the listener.

    Tone livens up a bit as the story progresses but not much and it's a BIG deal to an audiobook.

    My strong recommendation would be to read the book, not listen to the audiobook.

    "Awful narration"

    I was so excited to see this book I bought it without reading the reviews. I've no doubt it's a great book but the author must be pretty upset by the monotone narration. Such a pity, a great book spoilt!

    "A dark story with twists & turns"
    What did you like most about Good Me Bad Me?

    The suspense & how what had happened before was drip fed - just the right amount to hold your interest all the way through


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No - probably too much to take in .

    "Chilling"
    What made the experience of listening to Good Me Bad Me the most enjoyable?

    The tone of the narrator matched the book so well, that I am pleased to have listenrd to the audible rather than read the book.
    Especially the mother's voice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, none of the characters were particularly nice, but compelling.


    What about Hannah Murray’s performance did you like?

    Brilliant, seemless, brought the characters to life and chillingly so.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Daniel's death, and when she was in the stand.

    "Totally different"

    Harrowing whilst being entertaining. It's worse when you realise the author was a child psychologist so I'd be willing to bet this is more fact based than we'd care to believe.
