Couldn’t stop listening & totally gripped all the way through. Very unusual plot, carefully structured to surprise. Warmed to the narration which did contribute to the overall effect.
Well worth the purchase.

I couldn't move forward with this book and found the humour placed on the murder most disturbing and sickening.
Had to return it.

What disappointed you about Close to Me?

Struggled to get through the book and took days to finish. Thin storyline with no direction.

Some interesting moments.

How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

No.

What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

Story is rather slow, but the constant swallowing by the narrator was most off-putting.

Another fantastic novel by Rachel Abbott that I could not stop listening to. Rich evolving characters and plot that have developed from previous stories.

Would you try another book written by Christobel Kent or narrated by Rachel Atkins?

Found great difficulty in getting through this book. Plot circulates without resolution. Rather a lot of unmemorable characters.
