Predictable, Unlikeable characters. Overhyped. Not rubbish but better books to spend your credits on. If you need a book and can’t decide, this book is ok, but nothing better

One dimensional, obvious and didn’t relate to characters

Predictable, and not the gripping psychological thriller it was advertised as.

If you only have one credit, skip this.

Paul Davis forgets things - he gets confused, he has sudden panic attacks. But he wasn't always like this. Eight months ago, Paul found two dead bodies in the back of a coworker's car. He was attacked, left for dead, and has been slowly recovering ever since. His wife tries her best but fears the worst.... Therapy helps during the days, but at night he hears things - impossible things - that no one else can. That nobody else believes. Either he's losing his mind - or someone wants him to think he is. Just because he's paranoid doesn't mean it's not happening....

Narration was good but women’s voices a bit weak and annoying. Men’s voices fantastic and a great range.

Story was unpredictable and didn’t see that coming, caught by red herrings. But didn’t find any of the characters particularly likeable.
