Awesome

I listened to this book in 2 sittings! I really enjoyed the characters relationships and family dynamics. I did guess the ending but really enjoyed listening. The narrators were all excellent!! A very well written and sensitive book. 😍

Brilliant

I loved this. The characters were very believable and I especially liked the descriptions of how hard it can be to look after a baby. The trial was well paced and the different perspectives kept me guessing though towards the end I guessed who did it.

Gripping story let down by narration

This is such a well-written, carefully plotted story. It kept me guessing till near the end, and I liked the gradual reveal of key details that nudge you first in one direction and then in another. Really enjoyed it, and will definitely look for more by this author.

One little niggle - I found myself getting really distracted by how often the author uses variations of the phrase "And there it was.", "And here we are.", "And there they were." - not a big deal, I suppose, but it felt like it was said at least once per chapter! Still, the story was strong enough for me to forgive it.

What did stop me from giving it 5 stars, though, was the narrator of Martha (the main narrator). I know she was probably adopting a tired, hopeless, sad voice for the part, but to me it just grated on my nerves. I had to rewind parts that were too softly mumbled, and I kind of wanted to give her a shake and tell her to put a bit more energy into reading!

However, my 2 stars for the narration doesn't take away from a 5 star story - thoroughly recommended!

A bit long winded.

This started out promising but dragged on a bit .I guessed the outcome from about halfway through . I had to speed up the narration as the main character spoke every word so slowly . If this has been a written book I would have gone to the end to find the outcome and missed all the boring bit in the middle .

Great book

Just a bit let down by the narrators. They are supposed to be sisters but had such opposite voices to the point of it being comical. one spoke like a chipmunk the other sounded like a sloth under sedation. The most annoying part was having to turn the volume up when sloth spoke and turn it back down when the chip monk spoke

A steady listen

I guessed the twist about 3 hours in and had to wait and wait for confirmation. Some narrators better than others but I enjoyed it. Found myself sneaking time away to listen to more.

Beautifully crafted moving story of terrible loss

I thought this book was beautifully written. The characters were so well defined and as a listener, I had great empathy for them. It is a very sad story and at times I felt myself close to tears. How easily things can go wrong and events can spiral. This book is very thought-provoking, who is to blame, it asks some very searching questions about responsibility and how people cope in difficult situations. The only niggle I had was the narrator for Martha I did find her style grating at times there were some very intonations that seemed out of sync with the narrative and context. All in all, I would recommend this book.

Lordy. About 15 chapters of padding

Good premise but in the end I couldn’t wait for it to finish! Far too much repetition of same old same old
