Publisher's Summary

They say every marriage has its secrets.
But no one sees what happens behind closed doors.
And sometimes those doors should never be opened....

Sal and Charlie are married. They love each other. But they aren't happy. Sal cannot leave, no matter what Charlie does - no matter how much it hurts.

What the Critics Say

"Hall packs a punch with this one and the ending left me gasping." (For the Love of Books)
"A gripping psychological thriller with a level of tension that will leave you breathless." (Tracy Book Lover)
"It is disturbing and chilling. It feels very real. And a quick mention for that twist! I did not see that coming at all. I usually spot these things and I didn't! Clever! Very clever!" (Northern Crime Reviews)

    "Wow!!"

    Excellent book! I did not see that twist coming!! I almost feel the need to read it again to find any subtle hints.

    Well read, well written and one of the best books I have read.

    "Great twist"

    Really enjoyed this book and didn't expect the ending, although at one point I did suspect something wasn't as it seemed. Agree that narrator could have varied voice a bit however without spoiling it for others I think it was best as it was.

    "Best twist ever"

    Loved this book and had me thinking about it long after I'd finished. Didn't see the twist coming at all. Jessica ball does a great job narrating too.

    A real twist at the end concluded a fantastic story. I emphasised with the main character - well I thought I did. Can't recommend this book enough

    Story
    "Not sure if it's just me or it was supposed to be this way"

    It took me until the final chapter to identify which gender Sal and Charlie were. I think it was carefully written that way. However, I felt I knew which way round it was but today's society made it sound unrealistic.

    This review will sound cryptic but give the book ago and then read this again

    Story
    "Never Mind the Twist - read it because it's good."

    Within the first few minutes of listening to the well-narrated Between You and Me, the author makes these things very clear: 1) I am meant to know that Sal and Charlie's marriage is abusive- one partner suffers domestic violence at the other's hands; and 2) our androgynously-named partners are not "him" and "her" or "him and him" or "her and her"- they are, and shall remain, "Sal" and "Charlie." (Later, there will be an "Alex" inserted into the plot, but Alex will not be helpful, because Alex is also genderless).

    I almost hit stop and delete. But I didn't. Because Lisa Hall has a way of writing simple, straightforward, punchy sentences that turn into thoughtful paragraphs that demonstrate exactly what is happening, let the reader feel the emotion, insert the pain and anger, or the triumph and the sense of such strong feeling for a character- that the reader moves with the story. You're just there. You are in the kitchen with Sal, you are in the office with Charlie. The story goes and moves and kills you and picks you up and makes you keep your wits about you because you need them, because you will experience some intense emotions from beginning to end. It is not maudlin, it is not overwrought, it is not a soap opera. You may think you know the twist, but you don't know all the twists.

    The story is told from the points of view of Sal and Charlie back and forth throughout, in a contemporaneous manner that is very interesting to experience. There are some look-backs to show the history of the relationship, but no more than needed to demonstrate the points to the reader. Same as the rest of the book. The less-AS-more approach just really worked for me with this story.

    In the end, I think Between You and Me was a great read. Certainly, suspense enough to satisfy, and psychologically a mindbender. This is a worthy, well-written book, and I recommend it.

    "Amazing until the end"

    I was captivated by this book. I loved the storyline, the performance, the structure of how it flipped from perspective, but 2 chapters before the end, they story flipped... the husband suddenly became the wife and vice Versa. I was so confused. Totally ruined the book for me. Aside from that, the book was amazing. Now I can't even recommend it. Feeling like a just broke up with someone haha. It was great while it lasted and then without warning, it went wrong.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    YES. This was an amazing piece- it explores nuances of abusive relationships in a creative way, and kept my attention throughout.

    "The Story is SO COMPELLING...I stayed angry!"
    If you could sum up Between You and Me in three words, what would they be?

    Riveting, Shocking, Appalling


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The final scene. Her imprisoned and the letter from Alex.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I was angry and outraged from the beginning until justice was served at the end.

    "Why?"

    This would've been a much better book if we didn't have to hear each part of the story narrated over again by each character to get their own perspective.. I got the idea. Charlie is a prick, and the wife is a submissive idiot. I didn't need to hear the exact same details of every event from both of them. Also, the characters were away to one dimensional.
