I stuck with this for 7 hours out of the 10 hour 22 minute length. I usually move on much sooner from a book that is not grabbing me. I continued so long with this because every review I had read was so enthusiastic about it being a great read and I thought that it must improve! The narration was very good and the story started with promise. However, the characters had little depth and I didn't really engage with any of them. I found the story had little substance, and very quickly I became a bit bored. My favourite genre is modern crime fiction and I had thought this fell broadly into that. That doesn't mean that I need, or particularly want, gruesome in my fiction, but I expect the occasional twist or turn. There is nothing of that to be found here. For me the story proceeds in an entirely predictable, and not very interesting, way. I had guessed the ending by half way through and thought the same with only 3 hours to go. Since I gave-up at that point, of course I can't be certain that my prediction would be correct, but I didn't care. It's pretty poor when over two thirds of a book have been ploughed through and still you don't care what happens in the end.
One of the best listens in a very long time. the narrator was excellent and very believable. I felt every emotion that the main character experienced.
The ending was not was not what I wanted but more realistic
I enjoyed this but found the mom's 'Dutch' accent to be annoying in its lack of authenticity and it was distracting. The performance for all
other characters was flawless
The reader more then reads. I was impressed. I think the reader added a dimension to this story, that of I had read it myself. I may not have appreciated as much.
Good story line. Well presented.
This was an in-ofensive easy enough listen. However to many aspects of the end were kinda obvious so early in. OK maybe not the exact conclusion, but the key components. Look - it's not the best book in this category on the market but neither is it the worse. Not so bad it cannot be recommended. Loved it when the family was around in the story.
An unrealistic and poorly executed plot and a very irritating main character. This book was not helped by the narration which was not pleasant to listen to.
"A wild ride"
It's been few days since I finished this beauty and still can't get over it. The narrator was brilliant, characters relatable; twist and turns in every chapter and you are sucked in from the beginning. IT was super quick and really enjoyable read! definitely recommended... keeps you guessing.
Everything is wrong about this book. It is insanely annoying. Don't listen to it! It will probably ruin your day too.
