If I had read some previous reviews before purchasing, I would have been prepared for the dreadful narration of this story. The constant rise towards the end of sentences became so distracting that I almost gave up after the first chapter. However, I persevered and must have become more tollerant although I do think a grittier narrator is required for this story. The plot was ok with several twists and turns but I found parts very repetative and weak. Overall, an ok thriller read by an irritating narrator.
Overall I enjoyed this story. However, I had figured it out right from the opening so none of the twists had any effect for me. It's a shame really because I felt the author came on too strong in one area and so the twists never changed my mind. Having said that, I did enjoy the story and it wasn't ruined by knowing the secret.
Unfortunately, I found the narration monotonous and irritating. She's good with accents and voices in short dialogue, but for any lengthy dialogue or prose her voice repeats the same intonation for each sentence. I almost didn't continue listening at the beginning because it was so irritating and distracting. A real shame.
The story was enough to make me cringe through the narration but only just....
From the start the rising tone of every sentence drove me crazy ! It was a relief when other characters were introduced just to get a different tone. I almost gave up but the story was interesting enough to make me persist to the end.
Exciting and realistic story. I wouldn't listen again because knowing the outcome would spoil it.
Chloe 'acted' her part very well and you were made to feel a great deal of sympathy for her but the listener was never sure whether she was deluded or not until the last chapter.
Great sympathy for Chloe - near to tears.
Hope she has some more great books like this one.
Enjoyed the overall plot of the story but found it abit long winded. The writer kept going over and over what had happened. I think I'd have sued the police department for having dunces. Was very 'Sleeping with the enemy.' The narrative voice was very sugary and for male characters her voice became sinister and creepy ( I thought). I knew the ending even at the very start but wanted to listen to the end. Nothing changed. A few plot twists but I had known the abductor well before the main character had. Applaud anyone writing a book just that it could have been way shorter and in that way gripped you from the start without being tedious and over written.
The story line is not too bad but there were no surprises with who dun it. Struggled to listen right through as really did not enjoy the breathy voice of the narrator which I assumed was used to enhance the main characters weak nature.
"Pick this one."
If you love to read mysteries/ psychological thrillers but you often have a problem enjoying them wholly as your fun is taken away before the second chapter has ended because you already know 'who's done it' - you might like this book. I had "figured it out" plenty of times throughout listening to this book, but only to find myself doubting my thinking over and over again. I enjoyed the narration. Listening to this story in an accent that is different from my own added to the intrigue, I think. I really enjoyed this book!
Loved this. kept me wondering. I thought i knew where it was heading and then i found i was mistaken.
don't know that i could name one without revealing too much
loved it all
A little predictable yet still suspenseful, a little cliché yet still interesting, a little too drawn out yet still compelling.
"Keeps your attention"
Pretty decent story. Not a masterpiece but a good little thriller that keeps you guessing and holds your attention.
"The most Predictible and cliched book I've read."
An original thought
Stephen king or Jodi Piccoult possibly.
A better book.
This book was so bad that I actually wanted the whiny main character to die. Then at least I could have said it had an enexpected ending.
I almost never write negative reviews because I admire anyone who can write, but this book was so bad that it was a complete waste of my money and time.
"thriller from start to finish"
this book kept me engaged the entire time. I've come to find many books lack this lately. The narrator left me a little to be desired. some times it seemed that every sentence ended in the same Flat pitch which made it feel somewhat monotone themed.
"Dull and Predictable"
Imagine someone speaking to you for hours on end with the EXACT SAME INTONATION for each sentence . The story line was nearly A's intolerable. Damsel in distress, hunky guy, slimy husband, whole lot of "I just can't " dialogue. Skip it.
Story keeps you on the edge of your seat and keeps you guessing. However, its more a story about how the love in a relationship can become twisted and corrupt.
"not bad, keeps you on your toes"
Another worthwhile credit, held my interest throughout the story, just took me a bit to really get into it. There were so few characters in the story it started to get predictable, but there were enough twists to bypass that aspect. Nothing to write home about but a very decent and gripping read.
"A suspense mystery"
Who is out to get her and why? Why won't anyone believe her? After a miscarriage and what She thinks is a kid napping she find that she has no memory of anything in the last few months. While her husband works to convince everyone she's mad clohe and her friend Jordan start to piece things together.
