I was drawn in by the good reviews but left stumped as to why so many people rated it so highly. I found it badly written and tedious with the same things being repeated over and over. I found no empathy with any of the characters and struggled to listen to the end.
the narration was flat and boring.
overall a waste of a credit.
Excellent storyline and well narrated. Each chapter kept me gripped throughout not wanting to put it down. I would recommend this book with a perfect twist at the end. If you like psychological thrillers you wont be disappointed.
great story, well written and narrated. a real 'can't put it down' with an excellent unexpected twist. an added feature of 2 narrators gives more depth x
Too many twists and turns. Despite the over explanations there are too many characters and things happening. Bit predictable regarding main antagonist as well. And finely explanation regarding abduction was not convincing.
What a fantastic listen, I listened to this every spare minute I had over 2 days and has to be one of the best books I have read/listened to. I will definitely be buying more books by Kathryn Croft!
"Great psychological thriller"
Well written, fast pace with several twists. I really enjoyed this book it kept my attention all the way through!
"Quite good ...."
This book moved along quickly. The accent wasn't too distracting - loved the male voice. Although I guessed the ending, it didn't spoil the story for me because I wasn't sure I was right until it was revealed. Creepy in parts but believable. I would recommend for soft thriller / mystery fans.
"Oh Snap.. Is She or isn't She The Girl You Lost?"
I absolutely would recommend this book to anyone into suspense and mystery. Although the premise is tragic as losing a child is life altering- it's also dark and nerve racking. You have to choose what to believe and who to believe. There's some sketchy characters and wondering who the male narrative is keeps you guessing until the end. Definitely worth the credit, in my opinion.
"Slow to Start, but worth it"
The story was exciting and unexpected. However, it did take a long time to get in to it. I almost stopped listening, but decided to push through and I am glad that I did.
This book was kind of slow and very predictable. There are better British mysteries out there, I would skip this one. There is nothing new or intriguing here.
"great book with a wild twist at the end"
This is a well written and well narrated book of abduction, discovery and an unbelievable twist at the end that I never saw coming.
There was a decent twist in the end, but they were awkwardly put into the story. It's an okay book if your looking for something to fill the space.
"Oh man... a lot of twists !!"
This was pretty good- although it did contain some pretty intense scenes (rape) . It was a little hard to listen to sometimes. Good story though and great narration.
Had me guessing the entire time! Really enjoyed the story and would recommend to those who like a good suspense book!
Kept me entertained.
Good narration. Flowing story. Not bad at all. I'm happy with this purchase.
