I really enjoyed this audiobook which also featured one of the best narrators I have heard for a long time who gave a wonderful performance. I love a good thriller but find so many these days are sketchy affairs which seems to have been dashed off without much thought. However Her Perfect Life had real meat on its bones to get stuck into with well developed charaters, great plots and sub plots and really intelligently and thoroughly thought out. In fact so many interwoven plots I am really hoping that there will be a sequel as certainly I would love to see where the main character goes from here and find out the remaining mystery. Excellent all round and I am hoping perhaps this sort of standard of writing and narration will be sought after by publishers in future now the bar has been raised.
I started this book 3 times over, as it kept seeming to not make sense, but then I realised that's just the way the book is. Its like trying to listen to 4 different books at once and wondering why they don't 'gel together'. Too many peoples names were being mentioned, people that I didn't have a clue who they were, or where they came into it. Also the narrator's voice sounded the same for every character, male/female, young/old which just added to all of the above. I think maybe just reading this book would be better than trying to listen to it
