    "hard going"

    very well narrated, compelling, but unremittingly miserable. Avoid if you are given to bouts of depression!!!

    "Is better in x1.5 speed"

    I nearly gave up on the book as I found the narration very melodramatic and needlessly slow with too many dramatic pauses. It actually ruined the main character for me.

    But then I decided to to play with the speed of the book reading (wanting to power through it faster) and found that playing it x1.5 cut out most of the melodrama and you got to enjoy the story.

    "A very good and gripping story"

    My initial attraction to this book was because of its setting (I have intimate knowledge of Herne Bay) and I was very curious to find out how well a thriller would work in what I think of as a pleasant but fairly boring seaside town. I have to say I was very impressed by the way the author captured the atmosphere of the place and gave it a very believable sinister edge. OK - some liberties were taken with some of the minor facts about the geography but there was perfect logic in setting this story in a location like Herne Bay where nobody expects really dreadful things to happen. The underlying themes of war, PTSD, child abuse and false memories were intelligently explored and I was genuinely gripped throughout the tale. The structure of the story (including an interrogation of the main character by a psychologist) kept me intrigued and this was one of the few books of this type where I felt there was a plausible plot.
    The narrators were very good and added character to the voices of the two female protagonists. My only quibble (and not enough for this to lose a star) is that the reading was quite slow and this was remedied by me changing the setting to 1.25. I recommend this highly and will look out for more books by this author.

    "Once she started snarling at Jesus, I gave up. "

    This book is meant to be fantastic, but oh dear me. The audio performance is a strange one. And all this "lets hate Jesus" malarkey. Nope. Gave up. Too clichéd Too depressing.

    Story
    "Gave up after a couple of hours"

    Couldn't get into this one at all. There was so much jumping backwards and forwards I had no idea what was going on. I usually like the 'past/ present' format but this had very little to capture me in either side of the tale. I managed to establish that the protagonist was under a mental health act section 136 but it wasn't immediately apparent due to it being so far from what being under that section is truly like. Missing some thorough research in that area and it put me off along with the to-ing and fro-ing. A very sad character with no light at the end of the tunnel.
    Imogen Church excellent as ever but not enough for me to carry on unfortunately

    "Disappointing"

    I found this book hard going for the first half. Partly due to the book being over written and partly due to the first narrator emphasising and dramatising every sentence so it became extremely hard and irritating to listen to. It was a relief when the second narrator took over and from then the story flowed so much better. The story in itself was okay but could be told in half the time if the writing had been less indulgent and more concise.
