The Amnesia Project

This is first book that I listened to from Barbara Winkes and I like it.. The Amnesia Project is a book that will take you to one crazy rollercoaster and you'll love every bit of it.

A gripping story

This is a story that will stay with me. Dani, Alice and Joy are friends planning a trip to New York before careers take them in different directions. Alice’s sister Paige is foisted upon them and Dani seems more affected than the others by this. When Paige disappears they are all distraught but Dani can’t stop looking and dedicates her life to finding her.
‘The Amnesia Project’ is a fantastic dystopian romance with a story that has so many layers. I never knew who to trust or where it was going to go. I learned not to make assumptions when reading this novel. Barbara Winkes surprised me again and again.The reason for Paige’s disappearance was shocking but worryingly not at all unbelievable. Once you’ve read it you will know why.

Dani was tenacious and her loyalty to Paige never wavered. She found herself in peril, threatened and warned off but never gave up. Paige had an underlying strength and maturity that shone through. I liked her approach from the start and was with Dani all the way as she tried to find answers to where Paige had gone and why.

I really liked T.J. Richards as the narrator. I have listened to other books read by her and find her delivery very engaging. She brings the story alive and I was glad to find she was narrating this book.

I was very impressed with this book and give it 5 Stars.

OMG

This book is incredible. The characters, the storyline it's truly amazing. If you haven't read or listened to this book, then i can not recommend it highly enough. The narrator did a fantastic job. I was gripped by the very first chapter. I received this book in exchange for a honest review, but truly i can't stop raving about it. This book has to be in the top 5 for this year and probably ever that i have read.

A great story and keeps you interested.

Really interesting concept and a little scarry.
The story never lost its interest complimented by a great narration.

Love wins!

Loved this story. Listened to this on a road trip with my wife (who at first was reading her own book but abandoned it by chapter 4 on audible ) and were hooked. The narrator was great!! Great story. It was thought provoking and kept us engaged. Well done!

Brilliant from Start to Finish

Narrator T.J. Richards did a fabulous job in telling this story, really helping create this books world on our heads. As for the story itself, a cross between The Handmaidens Tale and HBO’s True Detective, with a romance involved. You are hooked from chapter one and will want to binge on this book like a great TV show

This Book Made Me Angry

This book is well written and suspenseful. The narration is spectacular. Without giving too much away, suffice it to say that this book could be triggering for anyone who experienced being a female in a fundamentalist cult.

Very good story

This was a mystery that kept me on edge of my chair from beginning to end.
There a little bit too much moralizing at the end, but other than that I really enjoyed the story.
The narrator was a good match, she made it all come alive. I hope to read or listen to more books from Barbara Winkes.

Hang on for a ride.

I was given a copy of this audible book free for an honest review. Wow, the angst. Dani is guilt ridden and driven to find the truth at the cost of all other things in her life. Written by Barbara Winkes, the theme terrified me at the thought of it being real. It's all about control and the great lengths that those who want it, will go to attain it. The narration is very well done. Hats off to TJ Richards for bringing it to life.

Loved It!

This compelling story captures a listener's attention quickly and does not let up. TJ Richards's narration brings a riveting dimension to this story and I thought the characters' voices were spot-on as the horrifying scenario unfolds. Loved it!

Creepy take on old story!

If you remember the Stepford’s, this story will make you have flashbacks! What a great take on the story of the “perfect” wife. Barbara has written a thriller that will catch your attention & hold it! TJ does an admirable job keeping all the characters believable & bringing the individual personalities to life. I really love Dani & Paige! I know you will too!!!

It’s a thinker

Excellent story that makes you think about moments you wish you could go back and change. Excellent narration. It’s a captivating listen. It’s told from the perspective of two different characters which are easy to differentiate. Will definitely listen again
