Hated it. Awful narration. Certainly her bored-sounding pitch was contagious. Definite disappointment after seeing this title on a few top 10 thriller lists.

Plot line reaches, twists, grasps nothing

Inconsistent characters. Plot full of holes. Writing tedious, turgid. I did not enjoy this book.

Each plot twist required characters, including the main character, to undergo a complete personality transplant which made the story unsatisfying.

Hire an image consultant? Refurnish my apartment? It's unlikely...I guess I'm doomed to singledom forever!

Starts off as a lecture about improving your relationship with God. Might work for some people. But not for me.

The narrator did great justice to this fine novel. Every minute was alive with the passion, misery, foreboding, and joy that the author intended. Highly recommended!

I love a good psycho thriller. So this isn't one of them. Contrived at every level...characters not believable, plot twists painfully forced. The reading was gaspy and over acted.

Interesting twists in p.o.v. Growly voiced narration pitch perfect. Prose self conscious at times. Good listen. Recommended.
