Publisher's Summary

Chloe Benson wakes up kidnapped and bound in an underground tomb with no memory of how she got there.

She manages to escape but no one believes her story - not the police, not the doctors, and especially not her husband, Liam.

When she suspects Liam is lying to her, Chloe is forced to retrace her past, following in her own footsteps to find the truth and stay alive.

But who is following Chloe?

Look behind you. You never know who's out there.

    Story
    "Let down by the narrator"

    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.

    "Reasonable story but irritating narration"

    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.

    "Just average & a little plodding "

    I wish that the main character did a little less thinking & that there was more actually going on. The narrator's voice really grated.

    "Spoiled by the narration"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The reader


    Would you be willing to try another one of Susan Duerden’s performances?

    no


    Was Look Behind You worth the listening time?

    The story was enough to make me cringe through the narration but only just....


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    Story
    "Gripping psychological tale"
    Would you listen to Look Behind You again? Why?

    Exciting and realistic story. I wouldn't listen again because knowing the outcome would spoil it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    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.


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

    No


    Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Great sympathy for Chloe - near to tears.


    Any additional comments?

    Hope she has some more great books like this one.

    Story
    "Predictable and poor narration"
    Would you try another book written by Sibel Hodge or narrated by Susan Duerden?

    Neither, I'm afraid. I'd be more likely to read one of Hodge's books than listen to Daerden's narration though.


    Would you recommend Look Behind You to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. It just didn't meet the standard of psychological thriller that people expect these days.

    *SPOILER*

    The main issue I have with the actual novel is that there is no twist. It's spelt out all the way through. It's obvious- so obvious that I was waiting for the huge twist and it never came because the 'kidnapper' was suspected right from the beginning.
    The first chapter when Chloe is being held is boring and repeats things over and over. It felt like filler.

    I'm surprised I got this far to be honest, as the narration was atrocious. The narrator has a pleasant voice and it is easy to differentiate between characters. Her accents and pitches are good. But the tone of Chloe's voice is so irritating. I accepted it in the first chapter as she was being held captive: it's the whispering, suspenseful tone of somebody who has been abducted, nervous, rushed and scared. But this continued for the duration of the book, yet with a narrative tone. She sounded like a cross between a newsreader and Mystic Meg! The direct speech parts were truly awful and couldn't be distinguished between the narrative parts.

    So much more could have been done with the abusive husband. He could have been acted in a really clever way but was given a 'general' menacing voice.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Change the narrator.


    If this book were a film would you go see it?

    Not now I've read the book and didn't like it.

    "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!

    What would have made Look Behind You better?

    An original thought


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Stephen king or Jodi Piccoult possibly.


    How could the performance have been better?

    A better book.


    What character would you cut from Look Behind You?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "A decent suspense thriller"

    The introduction to this story draws you as the main character wakes up buried alive.
    As the story plays out you start seeing different scenarios as to what could have happened, was she kidnaped did her husband try and kill her or is this all in her head.
    I liked the narration however she is not my favorite or even in the top ten.
    II'm a huge fan of suspense so i liked this but there are so many other books I like better. There are also other books that are getting critical acclaim that I think are not as good as Look Behind You.

    Not to give anything away but I did feel like the twist in this story was a bit predictable.

    "Not as suspenseful as I'd hoped"

    The story was often repetitive (the book's narrator kept reviewing her gathered facts) and I kept hoping the plot line would be better than it kept turning out to be. Reader was good, though.

    "Meh."

    Downloaded this book because of the good reviews. When my friend and I finished it, all we could say was, "Finally!" The actual book may not have been that bad, but the narrator of the audio book was so disappointing. She speaks in a monotonous whisper the ENTIRE book, including when the characters are supposed to be angry or yelling. Usually I can get past a poor narration, but I just couldn't with this book. One thing that really bothered my friend was that the main character talks frequently about her best friend, who she never actually talks to or is introduced in the book. It's kind of like the author just didn't feel like adding another character. Overall, it just made me feel very, "Meh."

    Would you consider the audio edition of Look Behind You to be better than the print version?

    Yes, while I always immersion read, I ended up listening to the audible version of this book all the way through. It was the type of book where you had to have the desperation of the character in her voice constantly coming through.


    What other book might you compare Look Behind You to and why?

    At this point I really can't give you a good comparison.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Duerden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, but I loved her in this one!


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

    When she went to school and was asked to withdraw herself, because of her .....(Plot Spoiler)


    Any additional comments?

    Really enjoyed this book, will be checking her out for any others that she has written!!!
    I always write a review on Goodreads, because I immersion read. Please look this one up!!!!!
