    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.

  • Heather walker

    The story repeated itself over and over. Would not recommend.

  • Dominic Chacon

    Great book and great narrator, just a little disappointed in the ending

  • Brandi Fields

    Overall good book, didn't love the ending....

  • Hortencia Juarez

    Excellent book! I loved it, but now I want a sequel.

  • Steffany Cummings

    Overall good book. The first third took awhile to get into, the middle third was suspenseful and had me hooked, and the ending (last third) dragged out a little too long.

  • Jenna Moore

    This was a great listen. I loved the ending it was very unexpected.

  • Kraig Vondran

    Overall, I enjoyed the book. The twists were good and somewhat surprising. I didn't expect the crazy ending.
