Summary

Penguin presents the audiobook edition of One of Us Is Next, by Karen McManus. 

Welcome back to Bayview High.... 

It is a year after the action of One of Us Is Lying, and someone has started playing a game of truth or dare.

But this is no ordinary truth or dare. This game is lethal. Choosing the truth may reveal your darkest secrets, accepting the dare could be dangerous, even deadly.

The teenagers of Bayview must work together once again to find the culprit, before it's too late....

pretty good

If you've read/listening to One of Us Is Lying, sadly this is not as good, not as gripping but still pretty good. The narrator's voice sounds like Alexa (really annoying) and the two female characters should have had more contrasting voices but outside of that it was good

Love this, a great follow up

Absolutely wizzes through this in a few days. Such a great story and very fast paced.
My only criticism is that it was sometimes difficult to tell the narrators apart as the female voices are a little bit similar.
Otherwise I would highly recommend to fans of the first one, I will definitely be checking out Two Can Keep a Secret

not as good as the first one

characters are boring and unsympathetic. everyone is whiny and annoying and very 1 dimensional.
narrators were OK.

what a twist!

I really enjoyed catching up with different characters from Bayview high and I really did not see the twist coming until the very last minute. definitely recommend.

YA Double Indemnity

I think it’s a very well done sequel, and the characters are actually better than the ones in One of Us Is Lying, more nuanced, less stereotyped.
I also think that it’s the perfect book to listen as audio, the format and style just working so well for a listening experience.
The story is not that exciting and suffers the same issue as the first: is really predictable and you understand what has happened way before the characters. Then you just have to wait until they realised what was clear from the beginning which is a bit disappointing.

Couldn’t stop listening

At first I couldn’t get into this as well as “one of us is lying” but by the time the death happened in the story I was hooked. May have put this on while trying to sleep and stayed up half the night listening to the last few hours. Kept me gripped until the last minute

Not as good as the first one

I just felt there was too much waffle in this book. A lot of unnecessary information and then towards the end, the pace picks up and then drops off again.
I'm hoping it's just a one off for this writer as that's the 3rd book of hers I've read and I have one left to go!
