The narration let this one down

The story was ok but l was really put off by the narrators. The lines for Jess were constantly 'spat out' she spoke so quickly no emotion or feeling just raced through every line. The male part was read so incredibly mechanical! Every. Word. Spoken. Robotically. On. Its. Own. It really got on my nerves after a while. Bad choice of narrators if you ask my humble opinion.

Boring

What a waste of my money.
I found this story really boring. Can’t find any positive things to say sorry. I personally did not enjoy this book.

Slick production great writing....

Dark but riveting story,I was taken in right away. That’s no easy task. I’m very very picky about my thrillers. This was not as much thriller as human drama...to me anyway. It was dark, but I like that.
It was very well written and the characters were absolutely real to me . I was sad when it ended.

A story full of unlikeable characters.

Each character is more unbelievable and more unlikeable than the next. I am nearly finished with this, and am just hoping I can slog on through until the end. There is no thrill, no suspense. This story is inhabited by weak-minded people in ridiculous relationships, unable to either move on or live with the realities of life.

Enjoyed Narration More than Anything

Storyline was decent, and the different perspectives were interesting, but it only grew page-turning during the last half of the book. Not fully predictable.

Ugh

This book was dreadful. A collection of thoroughly unbelievable and unpleasant characters and a far fetched tale. The device of interspersing the story with so called counseling supervision sessions is laughable. That someone as witless, self absorbed and disturbed as Jess could possibly be considered as a therapist is risible.
The writing and narration are not too bad but the story line? Please......
