Very modern tale based on the 20 somethings challenging the 40 somethings about their habits and morals in life.
The difference between the two generations in the office environment is put under the microscope. Conflicting views from office etiquette to entitled starts in life are scrutinised and nothing is left undisputed, no stone is left unturned.
With sneaky Sabotage and angry revenge thrown into this beauty it makes it an absolute masterpiece in my eyes. I just loved it.

Bristolian accent just beyond irritating.

Great story nicely paced BUT, and what a massive BUT this is......the over the top Bristolian narration was caricatured also her rendition of Bon Jovi's 'Living on a prayer' was just so horrendously wrong!!,
l mean, Who on this planet does not know how this song goes? If you don’t know these things DO SOME RESEARCH before committing it to audio.

Worst book I’ve listened to in a long time.

It seems there was absolutely no research done in how therapy works before writing this abysmal saga. None of the characters had any personality and the narrator didn’t help by making them all talk fast and aggressive and totally void of any feeling or depth. The story was like lumpy porridge but instead of spitting the lumps out and getting an explanation, ....we (as the listener) are forced to swallow the lumpy bits without question and say yes this all sounds pretty realistic. Well NO. I'm not swallowing your lumpy icky porridge.

I'm surprised this drivel was ever published

Oh so bad. The story is just bizarre and not in a good way. Stupid plot line thats been done 100 times before only better.

Terrible narrator with an emotionless main character.

I had to slow the audio down on this one as the narration was so rushed with no dynamic.
The story itself was lacking something, l felt the lead character had no emotion but endless 'hot tears' and l had absolutely no sympathy for her or her situation, in fact it got to the stage l couldn't care less and wanted her to get thrown in jail to spice things up a bit.
dull as dish water.

The narrator voice is just awful. Yips, grunts and squeaks throughout.

Probably the worst narrator ever, her voice is filled with tiny annoying glottal yips and grunts and was extremely off putting, l'm not sure whether its a phlegm problem or adenoid problem but the nasal squeaks on the end of every consonant was unbearable at times. The story was bland and didn't really go anywhere.

Annoying narrator

Psychology thriller this was NOT. potential for a good gritty story just watered down to a 'meh' consistency. Too much unnecessary detail about her daily work day that was beyond boring and the narrator was irritating.

Too much time spent on uninteresting statistics

I dont think its relevant where the parents came from and where they went to school or what type of car they drove. The history just goes on and on ! . not a great read. Very boring could have been so much shorter.

The sisters were supposed to be 19 but their behaviour was more like ten year olds which was just annoying

There were many times in this book l had to go back and recheck the sisters ages at the time, Their behaviour and dialogue seemed more fitting for ten year olds and certainly not nineteen year olds!!. There was nothing mentioned about any learning disabilities that they had so lt was hard to understand 19 year olds bickering like children and nipping each others facial moles and cheeks in public to hush each other.
I was also quite concerned with their attitude towards sex, one sister demands that a boy kiss her and doesn’t bother to think about the other twin or take responsibility for what happens. It doesn’t get discussed afterwards just totally dismissed.
All in all a weird book, l think it would have worked better if learning difficulties were introduced as part of their characters early on. It certainly would have made more sense.

Stupid beyond belief

Without giving too much away the conclusion was outrageously unrealistic. I wish authors would do research before diving into story lines filled with medical inaccuracies. I don’t think i was supposed to laugh out loud at this book but i did, heartily at its silliness. Also the narrator was awful for this story too plumby and accents all over the place. I wouldn’t listen to this narrator again
