    So repetitive and predictable.

    I couldn't stop reading this book!

  • Cathy Higley

    This was a good book, definitely kept me interested. It was somewhat predictable towards the end, but still a good book.

  • Cynthia Gulbranson

    It is a fast paced mystery and has all the right components for a good read/listen. The narrator was wonderful too!

  • Ayela Mujeeb

    I was recommended this book because I enjoyed "Girl on the Train". It started off strong but the last third dragged on. The ending was anti climatic and there were some unanswered questions. In particular, the last scene was really silly to me. Phrases were repeated multiple times which started to get really annoying "Anne sat up straighter" and "Anne sat perfectly still" were each repeated at least 7 times. The manner of Anna's sitting received more descriptive language than anything else about Anne. It drove me crazy. It was also difficult to sympathize with the characters. They all came off like spoiled jerks.

  • Jenny Folsom

    Just an okay book. The authors numerous sub-stories/attempts to provide twists were sub-par and predictable. I didn't like the ending.

  • Jodi Sowa

    Unfortunately I listened to this book for 1 hr and deleted it. The narration sounds like a really badly acted out school play. The book itself was probably great! However, I just could not get passed how the narrator assigned different annoying , dramatic voices to each character. Better luck I hope with my next choice!

  • Alice Powers

    The narration was not the best but the storyline kept my interest. There were several twists and turns that I didn't see coming.

  • Mauri Pioppo

    Poorly written, none of the characters were convincing. I thought the narration was overly dramatic and found her voice grating.
