Utterly enthralling!

Put time aside, you wont be able to take long to complete listening to this book! One of the best suspense/thriller books I have ever listened to. Don't be put off by the length, the 14hrs goes quickly. I do have to mention a very odd occurrence (about 5 times in the book) where the same sentence is repeated as the one before - I can only assume its the recording that isn't corrected edited (and I can't believe that has not yet been fixed) as its not a mistake an author would make.
Probably Emilia Fox's best narration!

My guilty pleasure. So many twists and turns.

I could not stop listening there were so many twists and turns. Once you get sucked into the world of the main character it’s difficult to think of anything else. I binged the whole novel (14 hours) in two says. I was so desperate to find out the answer to the mystery I switched to double speed. It doesn’t disappoint. No spoilers, but there is a brilliant revelation at the end that I never saw coming. The reader is brilliant too. After hearing the audiobook, I immediately read the book itself. This book has been my guilty pleasure this summer and I enjoyed every moment of it.

When He’s Not Here

This was a very intriguing story and although it was good to get a full resolution I did feel it went on for too long! I thought it had ended and there was still 2 hours left. It left me feeling unsure if I enjoyed it or not? Some parts are exciting and leave you dying to know what happens next and other parts are tedious and hard work. Probably could have been edited down more but I might be willing to try another book by the same author.

Stupid.

I felt Very stupid while listening to this “novel” and have deep regret for having listened for hours, thinking that it might get better. It did not.
