The author of The Eternal World seamlessly combines history, biotechnology, action and adventure in this high-concept thriller. John Smith has a special gift that seems more like a curse: he can access other people's thoughts. He hears the songs stuck in their heads, their most private traumas and fears, the painful memories they can't let go of. The CIA honed his skills until he was one of their most powerful operatives, but Smith fled the agency and now works as a private consultant.

It seems a book you won’t want to like, but it’s great. The narrator really brings it to life very well.

Shame there’s only 2 in the series so far as I’m hooked!

A marriage is what you make it, isn't it? It's what you put into it. It's not just about love; it's about understanding another person's point of view. Sometimes there are things you find out about yourself and each other, which means the marriage has to end. Sad, particularly when kids are involved - but all pretty normal. Normal, that is, until there's a murder.

The performance was great, but the story was just a bit disappointing - felt I waited ages for the ending.

She could have stopped an awful crime. She could have saved a life. She tried to forget about it. But now the truth is out. The terrifying new psychological thriller from the best-selling author of Retribution and Pretty Little Things. Faith Saunders is the perfect wife, mother, and community champion - loved and admired by all who know her. One night will change everything. As she drives home in the pouring rain, a dishevelled young woman appears out of nowhere, pleading for help.

Julianne Hoffman books are quite gruesome and this ones no different. My first Hoffman audible and was addictive. Narrator brought all the characters to life.

Seventeen-year-old Haley McWaid is a good girl, the pride of her suburban New Jersey family, captain of the lacrosse team, headed off to college next year with all the hopes and dreams her doting parents can pin on her. Which is why, when her mother wakes one morning to find that Haley never came home the night before, and three months quickly pass without word from the girl, the community assumes the worst.

"I'll tell you something, something important. Love is a decision. Not a feeling. That's what you young people don't realise. That's why you're always off divorcing each other. No offence, dear." So decrees the formidable Connie Thrum of Scribbly Gum Island. She is the chief decision-maker of a rather unconventional family and her word is law. It's been over seventy years since Connie and her sister Rose visited their neighbours and found the kettle boiling and a baby waking for her feed, but no sign of her parents.

Beautifully written. Liane Moriarty tells stories of every day life and challenges with such honesty.

Performance of narrator was brilliant - great at capturing each characters personality.

Once again it shows the resilience and thick skin that a Comedian needs to make it big. It wasn't an easy journey but he paints it a very funny one.
