Absolutely brilliant!

Another fantastic book from Gillian McAllister. Listened to it in two days and every word had me gripped. The characters were so believable and I could relate to so much of the story line. Some parts had me smiling and some brought a tear to my eyes. Zoe did an amazing job with the narration and really brought the story to life. I will be looking for more books she's narrated. . Gillian, please keep on writing :-)

Narrator spoiled story and enjoyment

I was very disappointed by the performance and narration of this book.
The synopsis seemed very interesting and just the type of book I enjoy. I could also tell that the author had written the book with expertise.
However, the droning voice and pessimistic tone of the narrator totally put me off. I tried four times to listen to this book but each time could only hear four or so chapters before her voice grated so much I had to turn it off.
I really wish I could read this book but unfortunately I am blind. If only it had another narrator! Any chance of this happening?
I think publishers should be more careful in their choice of book performers

Please do not buy!

Where to start? This storyline has so many ridiculously unbelievable elements in it that it’s impossible to enjoy at any level. It’s also padded out with sickly speeches that are just tedious and the whole thing is about 10 hours longer than it needs to be. Please don’t waste your time - I wish I hadn’t.

i was bored

it was a long drawn out story and the narrator spoke so softly almost whispering. The story was boring ad repetitive. I lasted only half way through a d gave up.

Engaging story but lacked research.

I enjoyed the book, but factual innacurracies about the legalities of life sentences and procedures in prison undermined things slightly for me.

Irritating narrator

I have tried to persevere with this book, but find the hushed voice of the narrator unbelievably irritating.

No tension build up but nice story.

The story is solid and it works but I didn't feel myself hanging on to their every word waiting for them to solve this mystery, the reveals fell flat and even when she's learning new things it didn't set my mind racing trying to fit all the facts together.
The main characters are well thought out but all else fell away.

The narrator manages to whisper for 14 hours straight so kudos to them. Not sure it added much to the overall story telling but it did mean I had to concentrate even more just to stay with the story.

Overall its average at best.

Dull!

Dull woman’s feckless shop-a-holic mother was murdered when the woman was just 17-years-old. Her artistic waster Father is serving a prison sentence for her murder. Did he do it? Nearly half way into the 14 hour length of this book at chapter 22, I just don’t care. I haven’t found any character that I can invest in. I gave the story 2* only because the quality of the writing itself is good. Very disappointing.
