not so much a book...more a documentary...loved the clips of interviews etc. Prevoiusly hearing this authors books simply "read"...I have found his work repetitive. this documentary style was much more engaging - loved it.

not for me

To gross and disturbing for me.....I had to stop listening...maybe it got better....but the subject matter and people being interviewed creeped me out.

Excellent Immersive Story

I loved this book.Two parallel stories, one current one buried in long forgotten family history. How well do any of us know the "stories" others......

deeply moving listen....terrifying to hear the events unfold............
I feel for the men and women dealing with these events. I doubt life was ever the same for them again.

Shocking

The British legal system is the best in the world...or is it. Prepare to have your complacency shaken and stirred. You will sleep a little less easy after reading this book.

A good romantic romp

This book isn't high art or great literature. Nor does it have the poignancy of Me Before You. However it was a nice engaging and enjoyable follow up story. There i's nothing too deep or meaningful here, but it was a fun distraction from the everyday.

It took me a while to get into this book and I found I had to listen to the beginning several times, but it was worth it. Was it "Great literature " ...no, was it great escapism...definitely!

Very enjoyable read with interesting twists on family secrets, premonitions, and family bonds. I couldn't wait to find out what happened next.
