Excellent!

Really enjoyed this book. I listen on my way to work and have got through many books over the last few months. This is probably in my top three. Well drawn characters, gripping story and fantastic performances!

A life story

Was wondering all the way through why the story was given the title it was and finally found out. Fascinating tale of the past, present and future with some very terrible outcomes. Be careful what you wish for is a strong message throughout. Enjoyed the narration, which is a big plus for me as some bad choices can make or break a very good storyline.

Gripping story

Very good story. Unexpectedly interlocking a number of relationships and story lines. I enjoyed it immensely.

I wasn't really impressed

I stuck with this book until the end as I had started it so I wanted to finish it.

To be honest there is not much of story, it could have been covered as a short story as there is a lot of extra words and details given that are irrelevant to the story. You are constantly waiting for something to happen and it never really does. On the occasion that something does happen it's under played.

On the whole a big disappoint, I won't recommend this to my friends and not sure I would listen to anymore of this authors books.

The narrators were ok.

Strong characters growing as the story builds ...

Couldn't wait to hear how this unraveled & built all at the same time. Strong characters .

Enjoyable narration & this book just fitted the bill.

Enjoyable and relaxing read

Any additional comments?

Great book, with an interesting plot, relaxing to read as there isn't too much going on or any real cliff hangers yet its still interesting, very cleverly written. Would recommend for someone looking to read something interesting, relaxing yet not boring!

Too much of everything trying to make too much .

I started thinking it would be an interesting story but ended up not liking any of the characters and didn't care how it ended. I fear the author kept trying to make it more interesting by adding what they thought were twists in the story. If this is chic lit it's not for me.

Not another Girl on the Train

Tolerable at first but ultimately a thin plot with silly characters. A chick lit story with thriller pretensions.
